  1. That checks out... he also posted a 416 for sale for only 7k πŸ˜…
  2. Personally I'd steer clear of the Xeen CFs because they're the same glass as Rokinon's cheaper lenses just with fancier housings. I have a cinevised set of Leica R lenses and love them. You can get a good Leica 35mm summicron for about half the price of a new Xeen CF. If size is the main factor for you, another option (that's a bit more expensive) would be a 32mm Zeiss Standard Speed, which is even smaller than the Xeens.
  3. I while back I found this document which mentions that "The RX lens is calibrated to pass 1/2 to 1/3 more light than the aperture markings on the barrel indicates. When using RX lenses with the H-16 camera, the effective shutter speed is back to 1/65 of a second." Dom, have I been led astray?
  4. I'll second Silbersalz. I've been super impressed with their processing and scans. I'm pretty sure they only process film that they sell but it's worth asking. I just ordered this small batch ECN2 kit for home processing of 36 exposure rolls, which is another option πŸ™‚
  5. Thanks for linking that thread Dom. I'll keep on the look out for a M38 x 0.5 step up ring. I'd happily buy one if anyone has one. I might have a friend with a machine shop make a few custom rings.
  6. Yes, I think the Preset version has a larger thread: M38 x 0.5 pitch.
  7. It looks like a few people have made customs step up rings over the years but I can't find anyone who still has one for sale. http://www.brentfinley.com/switar.htm
  8. Thanks for that info. I'm looking for a step up ring to use larger threaded filters. Do you know of any step up rings that adapt series 5 lens threads to a modern thread like 52mm?
  9. Does anyone know the exact front thread size of the Switar 10mm Preset lens? It seems like an odd size and I'm finding it difficult to track down a suitable step up ring. Thanks.
  10. Hey gang, I'm looking to buy a Kern Aspheron 5.5mm wide angle attachment for Switar 10mm lenses. They seems a bit hard to come by so hit me up if you've got one you could part with! PM or email (jordan AT canopyfilms.com). Cheers.
  11. Not a physical item for your kit, but the Sun Seeker app is super helpful https://apps.apple.com/us/app/sun-seeker-tracker-compass/id330247123
  12. These adapters exist. Duclos in California sells a pricey Arri Standard -> PL adapter, but it looks super solid. I've seen a few different designs in the $200-400 range like this one. Someone was selling one a few months ago on here, they might still have it. I've only ever used Arri S to PL adapters with a zoom lens on my Red Scarlet-W. You might run into issues using it on an Alexa depending on the depth of the PL mount... maybe someone else has experience using these adapters on Alexas.
  13. I'm looking to purchase a Kern Switar 5.5mm Wide Angle Aspheron for Bolex. Please shoot me a PM or email (jordan AT canopyfilms.com) if you've got one πŸ™‚
  14. Thanks for that suggestion Volker. I hadn’t heard of the wide angle adapter for the Switarβ€” sounds like a great option!
  15. This looks like a scratch on the film, possibly from debris on the the film gate.
  16. I'd guess that this comes from some light getting into the daylight spool while loading/unloading or while you were recanning the 400' reels. From my experience, in-camera light leaks aren't this uniform across the whole roll.
  17. I'm looking to buy a Kern Switar 10mm f/1.6 RX lens in good condition. Ideally looking for the later Preset version but open to any RX copy. Shoot me a PM or email (jordan@canopyfilms.com) if you've got one that you're happy to part with!
  18. I'm looking to buy an Angenieux 17-68mm f/2.2 c-mount lens in good working condition. I'm specifically looking for either the "Type L3 / Special P" or "4x17" versions of this lens which are designed for Reflex Bolexes. Please shoot me a PM or email (jordan AT canopyfilms.com) if you have one! Thanks πŸ™‚
  19. Thanks for those insights. The Vario Switars seem like the best option in terms of quality though they are quite large... I might need to just get over the size issue. Have you guys tried or heard much about the Angenieux 17-68mm f/2.2? It looks like a decently fast lens that's closer to the 17-85mm in size and even designed for the Bolex's reflex prism. Haven't found much about it aside from a couple tests on micro 4/3rds camera.
  20. I recently picked up a Bolex SBM and I'm looking for a compact zoom lens for it. I passed on the Kern 16-100 because it seemed a bit too bulky for my setup. Could anyone recommend a smaller zoom lens in C-mount or Bolex Bayonet mount? Ideally looking for something that goes as wide as ~17mm. Has anyone had any experience with the Angenieux 17-68mm f/2.2 "Special P" lens?
  21. I'm selling a Davinci Resolve Studio Dongle that I used only once. Bought in March new from B&H. $250 OBO. Email me at jordan AT canopyfilms.com or shoot me a PM. Thanks.
  22. Ah right, I was only thinking about total load weight, not center of gravity. Definitely worth going for a much beefier tripod. Might be cheaper to invest in a larger bike trailer πŸ™‚
