  1. Thanks guys, well, I'll be experimenting and trying all of them, they're cheap so no worries. The shop I bought from has also Canon FD 50mm 1.8, but I already have the Pentax and another Olympus Zuiko for the 50mm, maybe I'll buy it in future.
  2. Thanks for your input, I have an other option that I might go for, I'll maybe buy Nikon D5300 instead of the GH4 due to unavailability where I live. What's the mount of the D5600, what are the adapters I should buy to use use these lenses with it?
  3. Hello guys, I bought three vintage lenses from an old photography shop. The lenses are : - Pentax 50mm 1.4 - Canon FD 28mm 2.8 - Olympus OM Zuiko 35mm 2.8 Each one for the equivalent of 25USD. What are your thoughts and experiences with them? Also, I'm planning on buying a Panasonic GH4, so, excuse me for being a newbie, should I buy some metabones only? I mean no need for adapters, I find the right speed booster for each type of lens? As I want to have the full frame. And, about the mount, correct me if I'm wrong, Canon is FD, Olympus is OM and Pentax is PK, right? I love vintage lenses for the image they give, I don't care about auto focus.
  4. Impressive image, that's the kind of image I like in cinema, the colors are so gorgeous also, long live anamorphic !!
  5. Hi, I'm a newbie who's going to buy a new camera for cinematic purposes (films, music video clips, etc ..) , 99% will be a Panasonic GH4, I'm leaning toward this choice taking in consideration budget, mirrorless, etc ... What I'm asking is : what are the best affordable lenses for film-making that go well with GH4? Additional info about what I want to achieve : - I want a sharp image with a creamy bokeh, so, the larger aperture is the better, I'm a big fan of shallow depth of field. - I prefer wider images, not super wide, but wide to capture more details in the image's space. But I also intend to film dialogue scenes with 35mm (or around that, more or less) - In the future I will try to get anamorphic lenses when I can afford them, my favourite is ISCO Micro 2x. - The offer I found with the GH4 includes a Lumix Vario 12-60mm f/3.5 (the camera + the lens for what's equivalent of 1000 USD). I'm not that enthusiastic for this lens, as it's a zoom lens and doesn't offer the quality and sharpness of prime lenses and also the aperture doesn't give the shallow depth of field that I want with wild images. So, what are your recommendations?
  6. Thanks guys for the input, I'm still thinking, and since I still don't don't have the money, I'll keep thinking and comparing what's best.
  7. Hi, I found this in a local store in Tunisia : http://www.tunisianet.com.tn/appareils-photos-numerique/17442-reflex-numerique-nikon-d3300-objectif-nikkor-18-55mm-trepied.html Nikon D3300 + Tripod + AF-S NIKKOR 18-55 mm All for 1496 Tunisian Dinar which is equivalent to 596 US Dollars. I'm a beginner and I want to start being a filmmaker instead of just dreaming and contemplating. Is D3300 good? I can afford that price. Do you know if there are any defects? And if you have other alternatives in the same price range, please feel free to suggest. Thanks in Advance.
  8. I just found a breakdown of the first chapter of the film. Damn, the amount of perfection and attention to the little of details amazes me. http://mattscottvisuals.com/blog/2014/7/18/glouriousbasterds I really want to achieve this look someday.
  9. OK my friend, I'll subscribe to this channel. Thank you very much.
  10. Ahaah, I thought the screened version was like that already. And, welcome to Tunisia, man ! I hope you enjoy your stay. If you don't mind me asking, is it cinema-related visit? And another thing, also if you don't mind, I know I'm new to the forum and we don't know each other, but cinema is my weak spot and it makes me want to ask you if you'll be in the capital and if you have time, maybe we can meet and have a cinematic discussion. I know it may sound weird of me asking that.
  11. Thank you Giacomo for all the effort and dedication in your valuable replies, much appreciated. All these info increased my motivation level to buy a DSLR and start doing something, I really need to start with anything instead of just daydreaming. Damn, what I learned today by just posting this thread is a treasure for me, thanks to all of you guys !!!
  12. Which ones exactly? Because in imdb I saw only The Shining, Barry Lyndon, A Clockwork Orange, and he wasn't listed as DoP.
