  1. Hello people, Wanted to know when you take a new project what are the main criteria's or points that you check in a lens before finalising to shoot with it? Thank you. VB
  2. Hey gang, Haven't posted here before but I'm an avid reader. Thanks to everyone for your incredible insights over the years. I put together a lighting test with Dave Dugdale and a couple guys here in Denver to see how a few lights off of my truck compared when lighting an interview subject. We attempted to keep things scientific, though as we were doing the test we were reminded of the crazy number of variables there are when it comes to lighting. So we did our best with the gear we had to create some take aways. Check out this walkthrough video of tests we made.... https://youtu.be/5_3AgpU8o7U You can see some higher quality still comparisons here http://www.jdfnet.com/hmi-vs-led-vs-tungsten-vs-flo-light-tests/ I'm sure there's a number of things we can do different next time... please do share your thoughts on what was good, what was bad, and if we go for 2.0 what we might do differently! Thanks!!
  3. At the start of the year I owned a Blackmagic Cinema Camera for a few months before selling it for various reasons. Produced a lovely image in ProRes, but I ended up using the money to travel etc. Recently though, I picked up a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and a Panasonic 12-35mm F2.8 OIS lens and some bits and pieces. The image is much, much better than the 5D Mark III I was shooting with. It feels like I'm grading a poor man's raw, but it means I can cut and grade directly in Final Cut Pro X. I've been pushing it through FilmConvert with lovely results. So far in my unscientific testing, I've found that being about a stop over middle (while making sure to not clip what you don't want) gives very nice and subtle noise results. I'm picking up a Sekonic L308S meter soon so I'll be able to do some quantifiable testing with regards to middle grey, exposure and where to compensate for cleaner results. Here are some frames I posted through FilmConvert's Kodak Vision3 5207 emulation before I bought the plugin (hence the watermark). Some have grain enabled, some are clean. So far I'm as blown away with is as the BMCC 2.5K, especially given its price and size.
