  1. Tent 100%. Never seen anyone use a bag on set for anything serious.
  2. Yes definitely looks to be the same lens, they all have the ability to fully close the aperture.
  3. Sheesh it's like every time a 416 is listed the price goes up $10k 😅 Beautiful camera!
  4. Hey everyone! I have the BP-7 15mm studio baseplate for my SR3 and am looking to trade it for the 19mm version - the BP-6. Anyone out there interested in that trade? I just accidentally bought 19mm accessories for my SR3 thinking that the baseplate takes 19mm rods and just realized that I made a big mistake 😅
  5. Just arrived from B&H today. Project got cancelled so trying to get rid of these ;( $200/ea. Pickup in LA
  6. Not at all an expert but maybe the same reason halation is red? When light is intense enough it bounces off the film backing back up to the red layer causing it to be red.
  7. Beauty 😍 Would buy in a heartbeat if I had the cash for it
  8. Set of 6 actually 😎 8, 9.5, 12, 16, 25, 50. Yeah super happy with the deal we got!
  9. At Serious Gear in Seattle! Charles worked for Lumatech for a very long time so he knows all of their lenses super well. There have been different versions of the super 16 Illuminas, I think the older version has the "Optar" engraving on the lens and the newer version has the "Illumina" engraving. Although you should speak to Charles, he can answer basically any question you could possibly have about those lenses.
  10. I think some of them are defeinitely pretty good wide open! The 8mm was pretty soft wode open though so probably will do T2 maximum. Blue shift might be from the eyepiece being open and flaring the shot 😅 My friend and I paid $5000 for the full set, we're also probably going to end up paying just over $1000 to service them so somewhere arpund $6k total for a fully serviced set 🙂
  11. Bought a set of Optar Illuminas! Love them, just sent them out to get serviced since the mechanism on all of them needs to be greased. Seems like they just sat in a case for a decade or so and all the lubricant has dried up. Otherwise they look great, here's a little test I shot with my buddy: (Note: the vignetting you see on some shots is from the screw-on ND's we were stacking in front of the lens)
  12. Oh interesting, I actually spoke to him this past week and I think he said he was on the lookout for them. I think he might have buyers lined up for yours!
