  1. Hi All, I’m about to shoot a fiction in upcoming days. And the camera options provide to me are Sony F55 or Sony FS7 M1. We would we shooting prores due to budget constraints in post. Hence I needed your inputs on which one should I select. I understand that the Sony F55 has its advantages with global shutter and raw recording with R5 extension. However as we would be primarily shooting prores, should I select F55 or FS7. Thanks, H
  2. Selling my Elements Micron 15mm dovetail/bridgeplate package with shim and shoulder pad. (this was primarily used with Sony F5/55 camera) The package is solidly built with quality workmanship in design and machining. Everything included is still in excellent shape and working as it should. This setup is for 15mm rods and was used primarily with the Arri MFF-1 follow focus and MMB-1 matte box on a Sony F5. The entire package consists of: 1x ELEMENTS MICRON 15MM DOVETAIL • Designed to be a scaled down version of the Arri dovetail for 17mm rods. This is shorter, thinner and lighter to accommodate 15mm rods • Sturdy safety catches at both ends of the dovetail • Provides quick, easy adjustment when needing to slide your camera forward or back for balance, focus, framing or other reasons • Easy release of bridgeplate for immediate transition to handheld mode 1x ELEMENTS MICRON 15MM BRIDGEPLATE • Should mount to all professional and/or prosumer camera models as well as quick release plates • Locking knobs for rods and dovetail are easy and precise to use with solid hold • Travels the length of the dovetail with no snagging 1x ELEMENTS MICRON SHOULDER PAD • Shoulder pad is easily removed via a single bolt matching the majority of quick release plates • Pad is able to stay mounted as long as you are using the bridgeplate. Even when mounted on a tripod or any fluid head. Easy transition to handheld by simply sliding the bridgeplate off of the dovetail and you’re ready to go. 1x ELEMENTS MICRON SHIM FOR SONY F5/55 • This is used to provide the precision spacing to allow a matte box or follow focus to align vertically with the optical center of your lens(es) ALL NECESSARY HARDWARE (15MM RODS NOT INCLUDED) Asking $650.00 - FIRM. Available for pu in NYC area. PayPal / Chase QuickPay only
  3. Trying to get a low noise image with the f55 but finding lots of noise in the shadows. I posted earlier exposure tips but any thoughts on how to get less noise in the shadows especially during a low light shoot.
  4. Hi All, I'm currently DOP for a social realism graduation film, a bit naive and a bit nervous because my approach is to experiment and shoot with the Sony F55 and 16mm Zeiss Distagon prime lenses throughout the whole of the short film. This means I have to operate with 2x crop, which isn't much of an issue because I have all the necessary primes and zoom lens to cover the shots needed, but from the camera test footage the lenses appear a bit too soft. I was intending to get a soft look, but I didn't realise how soft they would actually be. I'm not too sure if the lenses need calibrating in anyway, but I won't jump to conclusions because my knowledge doesn't go that far, however they do seem to perform slightly better in low light. My film is being filmed out on the majority of Day Exteriors, so I'm just wondering if it's worth sticking to my guns, or whether it might be best to resort to other lenses. I also have the option of using the Zeiss CP.2 prime lenses, and I'm now thinking this could be my best choice. I'm a fan of the work by Stuart Bentley on This is England 90' and I've read up and come to understand that he operated with the Arri Amira, Arri Alura zoom lenses and the vintage Canon K35 primes. I'm just wondering if anyone has any useful advice on how I could achieve a similar look to this work. I'm looking a visual references such as: Tyrannosaur (2011) Dop: Erik Wilson This is England 90' (2015) Dop: Stuart Bentley Fish Tank (2009) Dop: Robbie Ryan (The images shown in this post currently don't have a colour grade applied, this is my next move as of tomorrow) If the images don't seem to appear, check out this shareable link to a google drive file of the test: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B67phC0DGkQYUmJEY1FtN3RHOFk Fire away at any questions if I've missed anything, or if it doesn't quite make sense. Any help would be massively appreciated! Thanks, Matt

  6. Hi, I'm currently in pre-production on a "kitchen-sink" social realism drama and I'm looking at films like 'Fish Tank' and 'This is England' as visual references for the look of this film. I want to use the flat and dry colour palettes used in these films to create a similar mood and atmosphere for my film. Eventhough my influences are from an 80's style, this is a creative choice for a film with a contemporary story. I will be testing the Sony F55 and the Blackmagic distagon lenses next week to see if this would be a possible substitute for shooting 16mm film as this would be too expensive. I've been told that this would change my depth of field and that I'll be shooting with a 2x crop. The majority of this short film will be shot ecu - mids with occasional wides as it's quite a close and intimate story. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or advice in regards to my approach? Here are a few visual references.

  7. Hi everyone, I just ran some camera tests on the Sony F55. We're shooting an MFA thesis film at Emerson College in Boston and this was our first test. Here's my question: Why does shooting with a Red 25 filter yield such extreme contrast after converting to black and white? We're shooting the entire film black and white by simply turning the monitor to b&w, then reverting the Raw images to be graded in post. Our tests with yellow filters and blue filters converting to black and white yielded similar results to using color filters with b&w film, increasing contrast. Shooting with a Red 25 then converting to b&w out looks like some kind of Microsoft paint filter, like a posterize effect. Can anyone explain why this is? I've shot with red filter and converted to b&w on DSLRs and they simply make a blue sky black and bring out the whites more in clouds. Thanks.
