Interview improvement

Just to give you an idea of how an adapter can improve your interviews:

Same woman, same room - four years later.

The SD image was shot with a PD150 in a confined space. I zoomed more than I wanted in to unsuccessfully get a shallow depth of field. I wound up simply killing the background light. I didn't have a lot of time to play around with it, so this is what I settled for. I'm sure people with more experience could have come up with a better solution, but I was in a hurry!

The HD version is the EX1 with a Brevis and an 85mm Canon lens (courtesy of Benjamin Eckstein - thank you!). We shot in the same room and the same woman in the same amount of time. I won't shoot an interview without one from here on.
