A fun day in with a Fujifilm X-T4 and Sirui anamorphic

Recommended Posts

In general I would describe it as lockdown-specific production, based on the need to shoot something without, you know, meeting anyone.

This made extensive use of close-up lenses as the Sirui 50mm doesn't focus nearly close enough to do most of this without.

I presumably owe some sort of swear box a donation on the basis of shooting an arty macro of a plant.

Great shots, thank you for sharing. At the end I was expecting a "Good things come to those who..." super and a Guinness logo 😉

Gorgeous color and texture, Phil!

The XT4 is quite nice, isn’t it? Did you shoot in F-Log, or did you use a color profile?

Thanks for all the kind words; I maintain that macro makes everything automatically look good, and slow motion makes everything automatically look good, so if you do both at once you're probably breaking some sort of rule.

It's to support a review. I'd be more than happy to make the contact. Drop me a line by email, if you think it's worthwhile.

I thought it had nice colour. There is noticeable moire on certain patterns, but most of the content of that particular piece is natural objects that don't really provoke it. It was shot in log and I imported the appropriate LUTs into both Resolve and the SmallHD 1703.

I mean, if you’re not cheating when it comes to filmmaking then you’re probably not trying hard enough, right?

Lovely stuff Phil! I dig how smoothly you were able to transition between the different colour movements.

Thanks, it's all in the lens flares. I am a sad, sub-Abrams flashlight-waver.

Lovely images. I bought early into the Fuji X system, for stills, back when they were seriously lagging in the mirrorless video market. It's incredible how far they've come, to the point where they've now pretty much cornered the market.

Some of the flares/light leak effects (?) remind me of some experimenting I'd done with "free lensing"; not sure how common a technique it is in a professional setting, but it certainly creates similar interesting effects, while conveniently reducing the minimum focus distance...
