Hi Guys, Just looking to confirm some Sony F5 sensor size and lens crop factor. Sony F5 = Super 35mm sensor Super 35mm Crop Factor 1.5 So an 18mm lens on an F5 or any Super 35mm equivalent sensor is more like a 12mm lens? As 18 / 1.5 = 12 Is this correct? Thanks Steve
Hi, I'm currently in pre-production on a "kitchen-sink" social realism drama and I'm looking at films like 'Fish Tank' and 'This is England' as visual references for the look of this film. I want to use the flat and dry colour palettes used in these films to create a similar mood and atmosphere for my film. Eventhough my influences are from an 80's style, this is a creative choice for a film with a contemporary story. I will be testing the Sony F55 and the Blackmagic distagon lenses next week to see if this would be a possible substitute for shooting 16mm film as this would be too expensive. I've been told that this would change my depth of field and that I'll be shooting with a 2x crop. The majority of this short film will be shot ecu - mids with occasional wides as it's quite a close and intimate story. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or advice in regards to my approach? Here are a few visual references.
