  1. It could be a good idea, if budget allows, to go to a LF format and use a much higher ISO. They tend to hold up very well at 1600-3200ASA and then you can use a nice set of older (if you can find them) K35's or Kowa's or something at T2-2.8.
  2. I apologize - seems to be resolved now. My passwords had the old login stored, not the new one from a few years back.
  3. After update, the login I'd used for over 11 years didn't work all of a sudden. OK, so had to reset password and get a new one. Logged in and that worked. Next time I try can't login. This time the same - had to reset again. Just tried logging out and sure enough - won't let me back in. Had to reset again. No emails to webmaster have been responded to. Is it part of the new updated forum that you need to reset login each time you visit website?😡
  4. Gordon Willis will forever remain my number 1. A maverick.
  5. In the commercial world, it's actually going the other way. Today every job I shoot, they want to be able to extract a square cut for Instagram. Even worse, they now also want to be able to use a vertical image (as if filming by phone) of 9x16. It's becoming a huge, huge pain. Films and TV are probably spared by this for a bit longer, but I wouldn't be surprised if becomes more of a request down the line. The way we're consuming media is completely changing. I see people watch entire seasons on their phone on the plane/bus/commute. It wouldn't take much for them to watch a whole season in the vertical format. Easier to hold the phone that way.
  6. My info is anecdotal, but from reliable source (owner of big rental house). I agree that TLS makes the best conversions I've seen.
  7. Just used the Supremes on an Alexa LF job. They're nice, but very clean and "German precision". I'd use them again for jobs where you'd maybe use Master Primes or Ultra Primes.
  8. TLS does gorgeous work, the best I would say. But they cost a fortune and the wait is forever. Prob more like 2 years to get it done. And what's worse - if any of their buddies or previous customers come along, they get slotted in before you. This has been a complaint from many rental houses I've spoken to - unless you're in with them or a larger customer, they'll work on your stuff last. I personally went with Nan and his company GL Optics in China. He's a standup guy and does good work. The precision of his lenses has also increased considerably and they're now close to being as tight as western conversions. His prices are very competitive, but he's also got a backlog these days. Prob count on close to a year to get a set done. But I'm using him again for my LF lens conversion. There's also a new kid here in LA that does conversions called Zero Optik. He does great work and I just played with his Angeniuex F0.95 conversion yesterday. Beautiful lens.
  9. Got too much clutter and poop everywhere, driving me nuts. I have pretty much every AC magazine since the late 80's and I thought rather than just dump it, let me check if someone here is interested. Now, many of the older magazines are a little water damaged and some pages stick together. Issues after the mid to late 90's are pristine. About 6 years worth of ICG magazines as well. But you have to take them all. They're in Hollywood area, so let me know if you want them. PM me if interested.
  10. Love the cinematography. Feels real in that Owen Roizman 70's way. Refreshing.
  11. 10-13amps in both countries. UK has a different plug than Sweden (Euro plug) does, but you can jam a Euro plug into a UK one as long as you first jam the ground and open the covers up. But it doesn't work the other way around.
