  1. I own an arriflex 35 iic and I am getting it restored by a skilled camera engineer right now. The question that arose was: Should I keep the camera at 24fps or tweak the motor to run 25 fps? As I digitally shoot mostly on 25, and the shot footage will most likely get digitized and incorporated in projects mostly shot digital, I thought this could be an option. On the other hand I would also like the camera to run at its intended speed(s) , and maybe rent it out once in a while. So I am looking for some advice here... [also on the long run I am looking for a flat base motor with maybe varying speeds, any "economic" suggestion for that is also welcome..] Thank you!
  2. so thank you for the suggestions, looks like I go with the ciecio from ebay. The wooden camera mounting mechanism I do like very much, but is too pricey for me atm..
  3. the ciecio I can just find on ebay but no webpage i could find, OR they are identical with this company? https://c7adapters.com/en/product/pl_mount_-_sony_e-mount/14
  4. Thanks! Is it possible to use shims on the metabones? not sure if I would need it but ... thing I researched is that there are (at least) 2 versions of mtf adapters. the recent one is shimmable and the older one I cannot see if that is possible ... I will check on the ciecio adapters , I havent heard of them, ...
  5. Hi there , I am looking for a pl-mount to e-mount adapter to adapt some cooke lenses to sony (A7s, FS7) I found some adapters online but there are no tests nor a lot of information about a lot of them around. I would think I need a shimmable adapter just in case, and something that connects to the camera or cage in some way to take weight off the actual mount. Do you guys have any recommendation ? thank you very much and happy holidays!
  6. Hi Uli, thanks, this looks great! I Just a question: When you put in the exact radius and numbers, do the lenses fit and "stay" and can you easily put them in and out?
  7. DEar Adam, thanks for the hint. they look beautiful, but I think they are out of my price range. Also because they are situated in the US and I would need to send the lenses there to fit..
  8. I am just about to rehouse a set of 5 primes and I was wondering: I would like to have a nice case with custom sized foam etc for these lenses, and maybe with a logo printed / engraved etc. on the case. Anyone can point me to a service? I searched with no luck... thank you! :)
  9. interesting how turrets seem to become a thing again: https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/04/10/multi-turret-old-school-meets-new-school/ I was also wondering: I have an arri iic with standard mount and have pl mount lenses: I need to convert the camera hard front to use the lenses, though if there would be a PL mount turret option that would be fantastic.. even with just 2 lenses.. but i guess , as the prime lenses are much bigger nowadays this could be impossible
  10. not what you have asked for but I d suggest also to look into the fotodiox nd throttle adapters, in case you are adapting lenses that are non e-mount. they have a vari nd filter build in. As i said it is a vari nd, so you need to check if it matches your quality standards before starting to shoot. for me these adapters come in handy with m42 vintage glass on a sony a7s...
  11. I m going now back and forth in my decision between a lesbosher rehouse and a tls rehouse. Checking the pros and cons. The price difference is that huge that I am not sure if I will ever make the money back in case i go with TLS. on the other hand for renting the lenses out this would make the most profit I guess. Also I would like to shoot with the lenses next spring and TLS would definitely take longer to rehouse... it s not easy ;) ;) Thank you people for all the insights.
  12. yes I can confirm the iris gear is set up front of the lens, so I m still indecisive about which way to go. but Les Bosher looks like a very good option , too....
  13. I just started talking to Les Bosher (UK) as well and their design looks also very promising and the rehousing professional and reliable. But just from pictures guessing I m not sure if they have as well the Iris gear positioned in the front of the lens and not at the mount, what could be an issue as Kar Wai Ng pointed out.. anyone here did lens conversions with them? Just from my feeling this would be a good middle way to go money wise...
  14. Ha I got it! I m usually accessing internet through a vpn connection , which isn´t working for chinese sites! Without that it is opening, thanks again, I ll check that out!
  15. Thank you!! the site cannot be reached at the moment (www.glcinemod.com’s server IP address could not be found.), but I guess that is temporary..
