  1. And here I was, hoping for a digital camera with a base iso of 50.
  2. Do you know you can ask him over at RogerDeakins.com?
  3. Moleipso. Mole made a 2k Leko. Its giant. Its usually cheap. It will work. The Joker 1600 with leko option will be brighter, because it won't need gel, but much more expensive.
  4. Don't forget LED lamps are not silent. A lot of them have fans.
  5. 500T is the most versatile film stock ever made. It's regularly over exposed for increased density. Its pushed past 1250 iso, and it just keep going. There have always been lamps near a color temperature of 5600K. There has not been a "standard". Why do you feel tungsten is not worthy of keeping around? LED's make horrid tungsten lamps. I personally don't like HMI lighting. I like the fact that I can utilize LED's for a daylight source, but then these manufacturers also need to realise I don't want to carry around 17 pieces to make a lamp work. 500T has been tested in every con
  6. Airstar will sell you a balloon, but they are not cheap. There is also another company, but I can't recall the name. I have not seen any balloon lights available which were made cheaper.
  7. Since my cp16 died today, I’m happy to donate for modification or experimentation. It would be nice to get a working camera in the end, but if it helps further the cause, so be it.
  8. My CP-16R died today. Its mostly not worth fixing. However, I do enjoy using that lens on special projects and I don't want to give it up. I have the 10-150 zoom for 16mm in CP mount. What are my options for using this in PL, EF, or something else more useful? I looked online and couldn't find an appropriate part, and I'm happy to send it off for re-mounting, but I don't want to pay thousands. I also can't seem to find a CP to whatever adapter so I could just keep the original CP mount. Any thoughts?
  9. I have always had issues with Yedlin's work. Yes, what he did was impressive. But to what end? He won't share the workflow, or his computer programming with others. He proved it is possible to match digital and film captures in his controlled examples. He did not prove it was easy in every circumstance. In the end, I found no point in his work. Perhaps for his personal style and workflow, it helps him be a better cinematographer. I fight to shoot on film because I can't do the same. I can't personally make digital look like film. Perhaps if he released his work to the masses, fi
  10. Couple of 10ks ought to be effective.
  11. Eh, in my opinion, the only thing digital capture did was to make viable content that would have never been created in the first place. Now on Wendesday, I'm gaffing a commercial for a new client and we are shooting on the Pocket 6k. Does the client have the money to make a spot on film? Probably. Would they rather find a DP who can shoot it for 1/10th the cost? Of course. Do they care? No. Following that, I'm prepping a feature which is 90% digital, and the director specifically asked to shoot 16mm for a specific sequence because it needs to look visually very different. Could
  12. Shane Hurlbut is probably the most vocal DP that came from G side. He started driving the grip truck.

  14. Tungsten will handle anything. Overvolt, undervolt. It just dims or gets brighter. There is, of course, a failure point at both ends. You can dim a tungsten globe till its effectively no longer incandescent. 120v globes can be overvolted too, before they pop. Don't worry about tungsten and gennys. For LED's, I've never worried about it either, because the cheap ones are so cheap who cares, just buy another if something happens. The Expensive versions usually come with really nice power supplies, and at that budget level, inverter generators. You should be able to r
