  1. Experienced photographers, would love to hear your thoughts on this article: Tips and Tricks for Shooting with Any Prime Lens Do you agree or disagree? Is there any other way to shoot with a Prime lens? What's your opinion on the matter?

  4. Hello, does anyone know if the lomo foton-a front anamorphic zoom covers the 8k 6:5 mode on the red monstro or v-raptor?
  5. Hey all - was looking to get some insight as to what other DPs like to test for when given the opportunity to test cameras and lenses for picture. Even as far as to what tools you might recommend using to help the testing process like a light meter, etc. For this purpose let's assume the test is for digital camera bodies. I'll soon have access to a RED V-Raptor 8K for testing and my personal Fuji X-T4. Two completely different camera bodies but for myself I really want to compare the dynamic range and how far I can push them in the post-room when comparing the two. I'd like to place them in high contrast lighting situations - anyone have any insight here as to what they like to do/use? Is there anything else you would test for? I'll also have access to a set of IronGlass lenses - rehoused vintage soviet lenses. Anything in particular you test for or even a high-level/general idea of your mindset going into a lens test? Testing for how images look like wide open versus closed down, flaring, etc. Any insight here would also be greatly appreciated. Links to other videos or tests would be welcomed too. Thank you all.

  7. Hi fellow cinematographers, I'm looking for the (somewhat hard to find) 26mm Kern Switar Preset lens in the final black version with multicoated glass. I need the optics to be in a good shape but body doesn't matter that much. I desperately need to complete my lens set. I'm looking for anyone that has this lens but I'd prefer to buy from someone in Europe/EU (that would be perfect!) or the UK. But I'm open to discussing importing it from US as well. Please message me here on the forums so we can eventually discuss the sale in more detail. Thank you very much for any leads on this! Marek

  10. Please send pricing and info to sales@broadcastsolutions.com. W.T.B. Leitz Leica M0.8 lens Set
  11. Hi, I've recently noticed a small blemish in the top left corner of the image when I use my Angenieux zoom lens (filming with my Arriflex 16mm camera). The blemish does not appear on the other lenses and has only very recently (on my last shoot in January) become apparent. Anybody know what it could be?
  12. FOR SALE: CANON 6.6-66 super 16 ZOOM PL mount lens Excellent condition. Bought it like new on cinematography.com three years ago. Used it for one documentary project (centerscanwith F5 - beautiful results.) No longer using it so it is time for it to find a new home. 5000 euro. Lens is in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Can ship anywhere as long as you pay for freight costs. contact: petr@lomfilms.com
  13. For lens cleaning, somebody says only lens expert can clean the lens because if non expert clean lens, the coating on lens removes quickly. So he said avoid it. But now it looks really dirty.. i have a question on this moment. can we just clean the lens really often with lens tissue with Panchro? Or should we send the lens to expert? Is there big difference? Do the lens experts in Rental shop have special technic or special lens cleaner?
  14. This lens is in excellent optical condition: it's rare to find such a clean 25mm Series III lens with high serial number starting with a 7, making it among the last made, since you won't find any Panchro serial numbers starting with an 8. I'd say this is an excellent candidate for rehousing (ex. TLS). While it has a *tiny* amount of contamination (barely visible), that would be cleaned out during a rehousing. There's only the lightest/smallest cleaning marks (light scratches in the coatings) in the front/rear elements. No haze, no fungus, no yellowing, no oil on the iris blades, no scratches or cracks or pits that I can see. Mechanically, focus and iris are reasonably smooth, but I would always recommend rehousing. I shot a project on a set of freshly serviced (but unrehoused) CSP lenses years ago and they all exhibited some image shift when pulling focus - and I'd guess this lens would be the same. I ended up planning all my shots without focus pulls. This lens is Arri Standard Mount. TLS makes a very nice Arri Standard to PL adapter (Duclos Lenses sell it in the US). But as I said, I always recommend rehousing. In my experience, the PL mount adapters only make the focus movement less smooth, and they sometimes collide with internal baffles on cameras, like Alexas. This lens has been kept in a lens dry box (electronic humidity controlled) since I bought it in mid-2019, and I never got to actually use it besides a quick test. The previous owner clearly had it serviced with fresh yellow paint and focus gear added, but I don't know what year that was, and I noticed there's a bit of a gap where the gear screws together (it may just needs tightening). Front and rear lens caps included. I'd prefer an in-person NYC sale. I can also ship within the U.S. (2nd preference) or abroad (3rd preference) if you pay the PayPal fees and shipping with insurance. I may also be able to coordinate an in-person sale in Los Angeles through a friend. Pictures: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmXbqKyb
  15. Bolex Anamorphot Lens 16/32/1.5x This hard-to-find BOLEX MUELLER 16/32/1.5x Anamorphic lens with holder for H16 Bolex cameras is in nice condition...I don't think it was used very much. Cosmetically it looks great, with no “brassing” to the black parts. The glass is clean, the front element has a small scratch, maybe 1/4” long, off toward one side. The rear element has some very slight fogging around the edges Lens serial number is 768491 The leather case is in fair to good condition, with a bit of wear inside but looking nice outside. The parallax compensating viewfinder seems to function as it should, but could benefit from some cleaning. The chrome plated pin at the front mount has a bit of rust and chrome loss. This set includes the lens and mounting hardware, front lens cap, leather case, and viewfinder, as shown. Everything will be securely packaged, padded and double boxed for shipment. I will ship within the USA only. I do not claim to be an expert on photographic equipment. Although I have described this lens as accurately as I can, it is nonetheless a used item, and I must sell it As Is, with no returns. $1000.00. I can take PayPal, but I prefer Postal Money Order. If you are local to the Dallas, TX area we can meet in person (cash.) If you are seriously interested, contact me with your zip code and I'll determine the shipping charges and we'll take it from there. Thanks, Henry www.auldooly.com
  16. We currently have a Nikon Nikkor 300mm T2.2 Lens available for purchase! INCLUDES: - (1) Nikon Nikkor 300mm T2.2 Lens - (1) 2x3 Rotatable Rear Filter Stage - (4) 2x3 Filters (Clear, ND3, ND6, ND9) - (1) Nikon HE-4 Lens Shade - (1) Front Lens Hood - (1) Rear Lens Cap - (1) Fitted Case - Focus & Iris gears have been installed PRICED AT: $9,395 This single-owner Nikon Nikkor 300mm T2.2 Lens is in EXCELLENT CONDITION. The Nikon Nikkor 300mm f/2 ED IF is one of the sharpest and fastest telephoto lenses ever manufactured by Nikon. It was made between 1983 and 1985 and is among the most rare production Nikon lenses ever made. When shot "wide open" using its unprecedented f/2 (T2.2) aperture, backgrounds become beautiful, out of focus pastel patterns with super sharp foregrounds. All in all, this one of the finest lenses ever made and became adapted for use by film makers to accept a variety of camera attachment hardware mounts, and mounting hardware, filters, and controls (manual or motorized follow focus units, lens motors, etc.). Focus and aperture are controlled manually. This lens comes with a 6 Month Parts and Labor Warranty!
  17. Anywhere you look online, it is stated that Canon K35 lenses were used for Aliens, but I recently had a back and forth with someone in the "Anamorphic Shooters" facebook group that piqued my curiosity. I haven't seen any mention of this in the forums, so I'm interested in what info anyone might have aside from this seemingly sensible hearsay: (names removed) "Aliens was shot on Panavision lenses, most likely rehoused Zeiss HS optics. The K35s story is an internet myth, one that is repeated as gospel by most rehousing and hire companies. The K35s were used simply on the b-camera for cutaways." Me - "Really? I can’t find any source that says that, how do you know?" "A guy I know worked with Adrian Biddle on a commercial project before his death. K35s were not highly regarded lenses until 10 years ago... no one wanted them and there is no way 20th Century Fox would ever let an entire blockbuster with a budget of 18 million be shot on them. Adrian Biddle replaced veteran Dick Bush who was fired by James Cameron. Bush was a very old school DP and there's no way on earth he'd not used Panavison lenses. Aliens was Biddles first movie as a DP and he'd never have been able to send back a full Panavision lens set and replace them with K35s. They had a short schedule and since no one wanted the K35s Biddles was able to get them cheap and have them used on the B-camera for additional coverage. The internet and especially rental houses listings are full of half truths... and myths ... the reality is... a huge number of movies simply used Panavision glass. Panavision were rehousing lenses since the 1950s and still are... and in that time have used Bausch & Lomb, Nikon, Leica and especially Zeiss optics as the basis for their lenses. If you believe the internet: Hitchcocks, "The Birds" was shot on SuperBaltars... even though the movie came out in 1962 and the lenses were released in 1966/67. The Godfather was shot on SuperBaltars... even though a good portion of the lens was shot on Gordon Willis' custom made Panavision 40mm. American Hustle was shot on K35s... well half true, the original casings were so useless they were quickly replaced by Zeiss Superspeeds. Kubrick used K35 on Barry Lyndon... not true... he used an early Canon FD specially rehoused. Aliens being shot on the K35s is yet another one of those myths. In their original unrehoused form they were a pain and in fact 10 years ago a case of lenses would cost you about 5k. ...the K35s are very popular now... but never were at the time... even though they did win an Oscar. All but the 18 and 35mm are basically rehoused FDs (with some improvements to the coatings) which is why they cover a LF sensor. The truth about lens choices pre digital... often it was a lot less sexy and complicated than we think... it was what was there, what worked and what gave the sharpest image on 35mm film. Plus the most reliable mechanics... and that was part of the K35s downfall... and their uneven focus throws. you might find this piece worth a read. Gregory Irwin who worked on American Hustle also AC'd on Joker, Interstellar... his credits list is huge."
  18. $3500 AUD I'm located in Sydney, Australia but happy to post anywhere SEE PHOTOS HERE - https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1aicH2CFb02xUNPTZQrkwJC3l35GU15yL?usp=sharing Anamorphic lens setup in excellent condition! All glass is clean and without dust and fungus. Regretful sale to be perfectly honest. I love this lens setup! See some ungraded framegrabs of a short film I shot with this lens build. ***Canon FD lens NOT INCLUDED*** In photo just to show what attaching a taking lens looks like. Items included: • Kowa 16-H 2x anamorphic projection lens •Rectilux Hardcore DNA single focus diopter + thumbscrew • Redstan 52mm clamp • HTN Lock Ring (replaces the Kowa 16-H metal ring on front of lens to be able to attach to Rectilux HDNA) • Lens caps for all • Vivitar 86mm close-focus diopters (+1, +2, +4, +10) • Waraxe lens support for 15mm rails Again ***Canon FD lens NOT INCLUDED*** Just need a taking lens to attach to the Redstan clamp (52mm male filter thread) and you're ready to roll! Will fit any lens with a 52mm filter thread. I often added a step up ring from some of my lenses with 49mm filter thread as well. Works just as well. Maybe I'll throw in a Mir 1 37mm 2.8 lens + MFT adapter as a little gift for the person who buys at the listed price!
