Hi all, I thought you might like to know all about the new and VERY rare LEITZ PRIMES from Leica/Leitz! They're spherical cine lenses and produce incredible, vintage-like rainbow flares. Leitz claim the Leitz Primes are ‘the best of the best’. As Shift 4 are the only UK rental company stocking this state-of-the-art lens set, they invited some of the UK’s most talented Cinematographers, DoPs, Focus Pullers and Camera Operators to a lens test and also shot a short film to investigate the Leitz claim. Then they wrote an article all about them. Read the full article here - it includes downloadable 6K RAW files, which I thought you might be interested in so you can make your own assessment on them! Suitable for high-end productions, you may have already seen the Leitz Primes in action. Seamus McGarvey BSC ASC ISC shot Cyrano (2021), awarding him a nomination at the BSC Awards for Best Cinematography in a Theatrical Feature; Balazs Bolygo BSC HSC used them on the Netflix series Anatomy of a Scandal (2022) and Tony Miller BSC shot the highly anticipated Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022) with the Leitz Primes, which is coming to screens in July 2022. The Leitz Primes are full frame, fast and spherical lenses, designed from the ground up and are very different to other Leitz lenses. Shift 4 have a set of 12 focal lengths available (ranging from 18mm-180mm) and sought to offer the community a varied and professional review of their capabilities. Get your RAW footage HERE!
Hello, I am trying to understand how this phenomenon can occur, In the movie '' Good Time '' of the Safdie brothers, I have noticed several times that the highlights that flare restore the source, not by a glow but by drawing of it. In the case of the example number 1 we see that the text in the window is present as a flare but that, it does not make a ring / point in flare but a reproduction of lettering neons. In example 2 the flare corresponds to the bulb pattern of the carousel. Can someone explain to me if this effect is due to a phenomenon of the used optics, a lens filter effect, or post-production? I am French mother tongue I hope that I managed to make myself understood. I thank you in advance.
Best Light for music video flares?
Roger Alexander posted a topic in LightingFlares are common in music videos. You always see the coming in and out of the frame during performance shots. I know the concept to achieve them is to have a light moving in and out around the edge of the lens to create the flare. I know the lens build also controls the look of the flare. I have tried recreating this with a flashlight a few times, its ok, but I don't get the big beautiful look that I'm used to seeing. I'm curious if there's a specific type of light that's best to use to create these edge flares or not? Any best practice tips in recreating would be great.
