I am playing around with anamorphic adapters, and obviously am limited by what sort of taking lenses I can use. I wanted to use a Zeiss 35mm but found it vignetted very slightly, so I moved up to a 50mm. This is on a GH4 with a Speedbooster, so fairly fairly close to simulating a Super35 sensor. Also shooting 4:3. For Super 35, ~35mm-ish seems like a standard for a "normal" fov on spherical and 50mm seems a bit tight, better for close-ups (imo). But since the 2X anamorphic stretches the horizontal focal length, I am a little unsure of what should be a go-to focal length for anamorphic. I myself usually compose based on the vertical size of the frame, which doesn't change, but obviously I wouldn't want so much more negative horizontal space so I'd probably move backwards to compensate. I don't have many other great primes that will take the anamorphic adapter, so I am trying to avoid too much trial and error by seeing what others think.
Hi just found this board and am looking for some good advice. Anyway I have a question(s) and concern in regards to video capturing and exporting. I will try to give as much info as I can, if there is anything else you need to know, please let me know. I just got done with a film shoot for a (hip-hop/rap)music video in a club scene setting using a Panasonic DVX100B(24p normal, 16x9 Letterbox), Canon XL2 (24p 16x9), and a Canon DSLR Camera (HD Video recording). A few scenes were shot in 60i with the XL2 for slow motion purposes later in edit. I have not shot in 24p before and it was recommended for this type of shoot by many I spoke to give that feel we were wanting. Keep in mind the Panasonic was camera A. Both the Panasonic and the Canon are tape driven cameras. The main question(s) I have is what are the import settings I should set on Adobe Premiere Pro (CS3) for capture each camera video footage? What should be the proper settings for the timeline, etc and what are the export settings as this will be used for both online purposes and TV purposes? I would like to know what is the best steps in getting the highest quality video we are needing for the end product which will be for purposes of online(youtube, worldstarhiphop, vimeo, etc) and TV also. So if you have experience with this I would appreciate your input (and help). Any additional recommendations for this type of video are also welcome. Please keep in mind I have never shot(nor edited) in 24p and am very confused on this. Hopefully someone who has experience with the setup can help. When I capture the video right now, it seems grainy, but when viewed in the LCD on the camera looks clean and crisp. Somewhere I am having video loss and not sure what I am doing wrong and I think it is in my settings. Also if you need any additional info, I can provide for you. Thanks for your help! J
