    Hey David,
    Last year I sold my RED Epic and picked up an Alexa Classic. So far I've found it to be the single most forgiving digital cinema camera I've operated (and I've used almost all of them at...

    Having shot and graded all three of these systems I have found this to be my experience as well. The Alexa footy is just friendlier to work with. Not that the other systems are garbage - they're all...

    Maybe get some Russian spherical "anamor-fake" lenses?
    They have a fairly unique look, which may or may not suit your project. But they do have some appeal.

    You can usually find a set for sale...

    Dammit, Aaron, I keep waiting for you to make a color grade that I don't absolutely love. Still waiting.

    Which is my way to say I love your eye for color. Keep up the good stuff.

    Some time ago I had a small set of Pentacon 6 Zeiss Jena lenses adapted for PL to use on my F35. They were decent, but I wasn't blown away by them. The biggest drawback was they are relatively slow...

    Contax Zeiss lenses do represent a fair middle ground. Sharp & clean, decent contrast and modeling- yet expressive with solid character. Getting EF mounts on them will set you back an extra $75 per...

    EF mount also has a larger flange distance than M42. So Pentacon to EF is an easy adaptation without limitation. M42 to EF still faces similar size restrictions of M42 to PL. So if I were in your...

    Pentacon 6 mount is very easy to adapt to PL, which may explain the popularity. M42 can be adapted to PL, but because the flange distance of M42 is less than PL the lens has to sit down inside the...

    I'd play with it, but I don't shoot BMD cameras much. Offer an Arri Log C version and I'm on it like white on rice.

    Hey Travis- good point. The Low soft clip does petty much the same thing. Like just about anything having to do with digital image manipulation there are many ways to skin the same cat. Personally...

    I finally had a chance to stop by my desk and test this. Both Aaron and I were correct- you can achieve the look you're after doing it either way. Aaron's method is simpler and less intrusive to the...

    You could try pushing your darks down in your grade. Then add a node that uses a film look LUT. Many film look LUTs will clip out of range values on both the high and low end. Normally one works to...

    Ooo that 28 tempts me sooo much. I currently don't need the 28 because I have the 15mm, the 25mm and the 35mm for my wide stuff. I just want the 28mm (and the 21 some day, as well).

    Pretty spiffy little camera based on specs. Tempting as a B-cam, for sure if the IQ holds up. Dual ISO stuff is neat, again if it looks good.

    It did vignette to about 11mm. From there it was clear sailing. Which makes sense because the S16 conversion for this lens bumped it from 9mm to 10.6mm on the widest end. That little bit of width...

    Not for nothing, but this lens would look absolutely AMAZING on the new Pocket 4k that was just announced.
