Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k EF Test Footage
Robbie Fatt posted a topic in BlackMagic DesignI've began taking this camera out and testing it in a variety of uncontrolled conditions. I have also been using it on an upcoming short film entitled "The Towns We Lived In". Take a look at some of the test footage which I have been shooting and let me know what you think. I have been using Canon Zooms and Zeiss Contax glass. But I will hopefully be testing other lenses on it soon.

What is causing light streaks?
Omar Lopex posted a topic in General DiscussionHi, not sure what forum this belongs in. I did a very short camera test for my CP-16R. I have a CP-16A which I've shot with and never had problems, but I bought this R model to use prime lenses on it instead of the standard angenieux. I have the bow-tie or butterfly model that is infamous for light streaks in the upper right corner, so I was testing for that. It doesn't look like I got any of the streaks people associate with this model (maybe I didn't have bright enough subject matter in the upper corners?) but... there is a subtle (but constant) flicker in the center of the frame. It looks like what might happen when you take your eye away from the viewfinder, but a camera operator of mine made that mistake once last year and I since then I always make sure to keep my eye firm against the viewfinder. Wondering if it could be because I shot at 12FPS (to save film stock and development/telecine $$)? I did forget to tell the lab that I shot in the slower frame rate. Could that affect the way they telecined it and caused flicker during telecine that aren't on my negative? I remember when I tried to DIY telecine some Super 8 footage at home by removing my DSLR's lens and projecting straight onto the sensor, the image was great but I ended up with white streaks and flicker every 4-6 frames, and I guessed it was because the projector was old and I couldn't get an exact frame rate out of it (adjusting the frame rate knob would worsen or better the light streaks). Or is it more likely a light leak somewhere? If it's a light leak could I solve this problem by enclosing the camera in a dark bag during filming (which could also act as a second sound blimp anyways)? I'm going to run another camera test before I start principle fotography, but wanted some advice on what to try and change for the second test. Here is a link to the video of the test: https://vimeo.com/226261458 Any help/input is appreciated. -Omar Lopex ana-film.com
Leicina special "shutter test"
bradley hayman posted a topic in Super-8I just received a Leicina special and it appears to function from what I can tell. The film in the cart moves, etc etc. however... There's one test that's been recommended to super 8 camera buyers where you look straight into the camera and press the shutter release to see if the shutter movement is visible. This works on my rolei, my Nikon, but with my new Leicina special, I don't see that flicker when I do this test. I tried opening it up (to try the same test but from the opposite point of view) but I can't seem to get the motor running with it open. Is this normal? Or just a bad sign?

Couple of my shorts
Dominik Belancic posted a topic in Please Critique My WorkHi, here are some of my shorts. This one was just me testing the Canon 550D, but I think that it turned out OK considering it was a test and my 2nd short: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG1L6CmeSAE This one was an assignment for a workshop I attended (my 4th short): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYpSasiC474 This one is just the first scene of a longer movie that will never reach the internet (this is my favorite one): And finally another one on which I did half of the camera work and I also edited, did coloring and VFX on it: http://vimeo.com/74527145 I'd like to hear your oppinion on these shorts, if you have any tips feel free to post them. :)
Davi Silveira posted a topic in Please Critique My Work**Camera Test I shot this all with Natural light. I had the camera for the weekend and so I was alone in this shoot and with my limited time I wasn't able to really control the natural light like I would want to. Nevertheless it was a good shoot, I wanted to push the camera to the very dark and bright places. **Concept Idea I want to make a kind of poetic visual and lyrical film. Think, Terrence Malick. This is a proof of concept. Please leave comments with Ideas, thoughts, questions. I shot this handheld without a rig. Some shots are pretty shaky, I'm sorry. Thank you for your time.

SRII camera tech
Matthew Kane posted a topic in ARRII'm shooting a short film with a friend this weekend, and we'll be shooting regular 16 on an Arri SRII (it's the last hurrah before her school sells off all their 16mm gear). There's no time or money to shoot/develop/transfer real lens tests, but I want to be sure that we can pull focus off the lens marks accurately. I'm renting the much lauded Cooke 9-50 zoom from a local rental house, and right now I'm thinking I will go in with our camera body, shoot a few feet off a test chart at various distances, and do a slop develop with some D-76. Then I'll set it out on a light table and check focus with a jeweler's loupe. Now, what I'm wondering is--will this actually tell me that the lens and body are all up to spec, or will I just be fooling myself? I was happy enough with this method for picking negatives when I was shooting 35mm stills, but I've never used it for anything that required a high degree of accuracy. Maybe there are other test methods out there that don't require going through the lab? We'll be going to at least a 1080p transfer, and since we're already cropping out of R16 and shooting on a zoom, I don't want to take any chances, even though the lens and body are both recently serviced and well cared for.
