  1. I've been a commercial photographer for 25 years, started DP and directing a decade ago, broadcast and streaming commercials, documentary and docu-series working with Arri Alexa, Amira, Red, Sony. A friend picked up this SR2 in Iraq in 2003 from a Brit filmmaker, my friend was there for NatGeo filming. He has a terminal illness and gave me the Arri SR2 w/Angenieux 10-150 and an additional high speed magazine. The SR2 is serial # 63831. I'm planning on filming with it and getting it set up (it needs a new cell or replacement battery - the casing is there but empty inside, just 2 wires). Ideal would be to convert to a V-Mount if possible. And down the road convert to Ultra16 (DeMarco/Aranofsky). I'm curious it has a High Speed magazine, How do I tell if the camera is a High Speed version (10-150fps)? If not can I use the high speed magazine as a standard mag? iPhone snaps attached.
  2. Hello there ! I am wondering about the scan part of the production for upcoming tests on an eclair gv16. Am i suppose to ask to the lab to make the Scan or TC at regular 25fps recommendation or am i missing something ? I understand that it is good to match the frame rate to the scan/TC 'rate' for 25 fps and under, but for the rest, i don't have an idea. thanks in advance Jordan

  5. Hey, I used these LIFX A60 LED bulbs last week with good results - https://uk.lifx.com/collections/featured-products/products/lifx - Has anyone had experience using them for high speed shooting, and do they have flicker issues? We're looking to shoot 120FPS Cheers, Greg
  6. Hi all, I'm starting prep work for my college thesis at Emerson and I'm researching into the different challenges with shooting the project on film. I'm particularly thinking 16mm, just for budgetary reasons, and can't seem to find a Super 16mm camera that shoots up to 300 fps other than scientific/military cameras. The film is about a track athlete, so I'm wanting to get some very beautiful, frozen moment shots of our talent running. Does anyone know of any cameras that shoot as high as 300 fps? I see most of the HS cameras from Arri only go up to 150 fps. Thanks!
  7. I need to film some items falling and want to slow it down so it takes 15-30sec to travel from top to bottom of frame at a play back speed of 23.976fps. Any recommendations of what frame rates I should film in and what what high speed camera I should rent?

  11. Hello everybody, I'm on preproduction for a documentary and I need to set a greenscreen shooting light with fluo. I need to be at 250 fps, 1/100 shutter speed and I look for fluo ballast for this. Is anybody already experienced this ? Do I need a electronic 300Hz ballast ? Have you any advice about bulbs. Thank you.
  12. Hi, I recently had an opportunity to shoot on film for the first time in my life (crazy, I know) and a question came up which left me thinking.. Apologies as it's probably a very noob question: When I shoot slow/fast motion on digital, I change the shutter speed to maintain the same motion blur as for the 'normal' speed, i.e. shooting on 25p, 1/50 'normally' and then do 50p for instance, I shoot at 1/100 to have the same amount motion blur. Assuming you want the same motion blur, how would you do this shooting on film? I am right in understanding that 180 degree shutter angle will remain 180 regardless of what frame rate you shoot? I.e. shooting 25fps and 50fps means that the shutter turns twice as fast to maintain 180 degree shutter angle? I hadn't noticed but was told that Red has an option for shutter to have either a shutter speed (1/xxxx) or angle (degrees), does this mean if you want to shoot everything at 180 degrees, you don't have to keep changing the angle for different fps? But surely, even if you can capture everything at 180 degrees, in playback, there will be variations of motion blur as the angle was relative to the fps? I.e. 25fps has 180 degrees and 50p has 180 degrees, but compared to each other, they don't match? I would've automatically calculated the difference between the degrees when under/overcranking and changed the shutter accordingly, but I was told by two working AC's that this is incorrect... If anyone can shed any light or knows of any resource on this, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks, PJ
  13. I'm shooting a person with images being projected on them by a Epson 8350 Digital Projector. I want to shoot at a high frames per second (120fps) or a high as I can get a way with... The problem is the viewfinder and monitors show an unwatchable bad amount of pulsing light flicker. Does any one have any advice on how to do slow motion with a projector light in the shot and on a subject to mitigate or preferably all together stop flicker/pulsing light look?
  14. Hello I have a project where we need to capture a golf swing which apparently reaches speeds of around 100mph. It needs to be shot green screen and of course the golf club needs to be free of motion blur (as much as is realistic to achieve) throughout its travel. Now I haven't done much high-speed work before but I do know this is going to need a staggering amount of light, not only for the golfer but the green screen too. It will be shot on location so no access to large lights, so my thoughts are to shoot exterior daylight using Phantom. Any idea of suggested frame rates and shutter speeds, and of course light required for this type of work? My low-budget option was to shoot on location with Kinoflo and F55 at its highest frame rate; but I just don't think the golf club will remain sharp throughout. Many thanks Steve.
  15. This was a test conducted a while ago but thought you might find it useful here. Compared in this shootout are the Leica Summilux-C, Zeiss Master Primes, Zeiss Super Speeds, Zeiss CP.2 Super Speeds, Canon CNE Primes, Canon K35's, Optica Elite Primes, and Luma Tech Illumina Primes. Lenses are compared wide open and at t2.8. All samples are available for download in jpeg and in R3D. Have a look and hope it's useful to you. http://matthayslett.com/salt-iii-high-speed-lens-shootout-wfo/ "Mission Statement: The purpose of this shootout was to directly compare lens sets on an identical setup. Our goal was not to “test” the lenses, rather provide you with all the info necessary to evaluate the lenses and decide what works for you. These lenses cover a wide range in affordability and availability. This shootout was never meant to prove which set is better than the other. We hope you will see that any of these lenses could be used to shoot quality material and have been for years. We attempted to get Cooke 5i’s for the test but unfortunately none were available at the time. Some of the lenses have slightly varying focal lengths so understand field of view may appear slightly different (i.e. 24mm vs 25mm, 75mm vs. 85mm). Please also keep in mind the slight differences in exposure since we were working with lenses rated between T 1.3 and T 1.5. No matte box was used to insure there was no vignetting or concealing of flares. All images have not been adjusted or corrected anyway. A white balance adjustment is all that has been made. We all know these lenses perform well closed down to a T 2.8, so this shootout was designed to push the lenses to their limits wide open. Most of the flaws visible wide open disappear once stopped down(examples will be available for download)." Projection: The below results were attained using the lens projector at Duclos lenses that is set up in it’s own room, specifically for the purpose of evaluation of optics on an even playing field. The same projector and screen were used for all lenses and the distances were maintained for the equivalent focal lengths (3′ for wide lenses, 6′ for teles). A loupe was used to determine resolution in line pairs per height and width for the Center, Field (middle) and edge of the frame based on a super 35mm motion picture frame. All of the findings below should be interpreted as applying only to the S35mm frame in which the lenses are designed to cover. Numbers are specific to each lens wide open. Lastly, although we did measure the lenses in line pairs this is an observational procedure and rather than deal with the political ramifications of publishing these absolute numbers we’ve decided to present them as they apply to the S35 sensor in the Epic and Scarlet. The data presented below is such that even measurements with a “Fair” grade will, for the most part, resolve the full resolution of the sensor. Notes: Where you see notes in the table below represent specific observations, if a field is blank that means that the lens performed average for that metric. If it was either better or worse or particularly apparent it was recorded. Perspective: Keep in mind these are purely technical numbers and do not speak to the cinematic look and quality the lenses exhibit in a real world scenario. Duclos Evaluation PDF (Click to download) Torture Test: This shot was designed to push all the lenses to the edge. If you plan on using these lenses wide open you need to view them at their worst. This test will show the differences in Resolution, CA, Contrast, Flare Characteristics, Bokeh, Breathing, Distortion, and Color Rendition. The test was performed both wide open and at T 2.8. For each focal length increase, the camera was moved back to maintain a similar frame for every lens. The test was captured with the Red Epic (5KFF, 320ISO, 23.976fps, 3:1 compression, 3200K) due to the high resolution sensor and ability to change lens mounts in a minute. Shutter speed was used to control exposure. Focus was confirmed for each lens in a 3 step process. First using the built in focus assist function, then by eye off the siemens chart, and finally confirmed on a 1080p on set monitor. All this was performed after the distance was confirmed with a tape measure. Here is a look at the test in action: Beauty Test: This test was designed for the telephoto lenses of each set. We wanted to see how each lens treats a human face both wide open and again at T 2.8. Focus was set to the left eye closest to the camera with the same three step focus confirmation. We have to give a big thank you to Stephanie from Duclos Lenses for being our test subject. Shutter speed was used to control exposure. Shot on the Red Epic (5KFF, 320ISO, 23.976fps, 3:1 compression, 5000K post adjusted). In action: Video: The video comprises both the Torture Test and the Beauty Test. It’s just shy of an hour but make sure to watch the entire thing. Hope the music makes it a little more entertaining for you! Keep an eye out for the areas highlighted below. This will give you a baseline indication for comparison.

Like I said earlier this shootout wasn’t intended to pick a winner, but really to compare and contrast between the sets. As you can see in this example the Leica’s and the Master Primes come out as the most rounded of the lens sets. This test is definitely not definitive and each real world shoot has a specific need or look and varying budget. A set that works for one project may not work for the next. Download the test material which is provided in the links above and have a look for yourself (both R3D grabs and stills are available for each set). Before you make any conclusions I would urge everyone to perform their own tests if possible. Those of us who put this shootout together would like to thank all of you for taking the time to view this and hopefully you get as much out of this as we have.
