Scott, they have an OCT-19 mount which is the Russian answer to the PL mount. They are all F1.4 lenses, have no breathing issues, and pulling focus is a smooth as glass. They are, after all, cine primes. ;)

I appeared to loose about 2 f-stops through the Micro35, which is what I expected. The key light was a diffused, bounced 500w at about 6' from the subject and I had plenty of light. The handheld meter read F4. The cine lens was set wide open as was the iris on the DVX100A.

Hope those were helpful answers.

16:9 footage?

Hey, I was just curious what the best way would be to acquire 16:9 footage using this adaptor. Is there someway to use an anamorphic adaptor with it? Or--is cropping the only method.

Also, I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with Andromeda. But basically it gets 4:4:4 images out of the DVX100 and can upscale them to 720p HD. Would using this system with the micro35 end up showing a lot of grain on the footage? Thanks.

currently I am aware of a third party trying to develop an anamorphic for it, but I am not aware of if it will be a production unit or not, possibly just a personally crafted mechanism

Clips from The Ancient

OK, boys and girls. The clips are ready. We all need to give it up for Richard. That poor guy is working his fanny off on several projects at one time. Things finally worked out so that he could post the clips and frame grabs.

The only correction done to the clips was turning them right side up. They will be tweaked for the final project, but they are posted as they were recorded. Except for the upside down thing.

Like the rest of the project, they were shot at 60I in the 4:3 aspect ratio. The mood for the scene was intentionally dark. Not only because the story call for it. We were shooting in the lobby of a tattoo parlor and didn't want to show the artwork on the walls (see the pic of Tim with the Micro35 rig to see what I mean). So we put up a canvas portrait background. We didn't want the viewers to see that either. How many coroners have a portrait studio in their lab? So we flagged off the light striking the background.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Submitted for your approval, here in the Micro Zone:

I like the shallow dof... I'm a little concerned with the blending between the high contrasts of tha man's arm and the black background. It's sort of hazing... But other than that, I think that footage looks really good

Most of the project was shot over a weekend back in September. There were 4 crews shooting 4 different camera brands/models simultaneously at 4 different locations around town. The producers decided to shoot 60I at 4:3 because some of the cameras couldn't shoot 16:9 and only my DVX100A could shoot 24P.

What about attaching a DVX100 anamorphic adaptor to the DVX lens, and then fitting the micro35 to the anamorphic adaptor? Would that work? I guess there might be complications, but would it be easy to workaround?

On another note, I found some anamorphic lenses that fit to an OCT-19 mount, I guess those would be good to use. However, they seemed to cost a lot of money, so I don't know.

well actually with the oct-19 mount the anamorphics you will be using on that will not give you the proper squeeze ratio you need to handle it in post.

the way the adapter is currently designed It is no possible to use the pana ana with it.

Thanks for the information. Now--I'm wondering, if you can't use a pana anamorphic adaptor, How does a normal film production do it? Do you think there are 35mm lenses that have anamorphic adaptors that fit them? Sorry if that is a stupid question, but I'm not too familiar with cine lenses and all that.

35mm format anamorphic

-I have seen anamorphic adaptors online for SLR lenses. Unfortunately, I can't remember where.

-A really expensive option would be to buy anamorphic cine lenses.

- In theory, the anamorphic adaptor for the GL-1 would work if you could figure out how to mount it on to the SLR lens.

-I'm sure Century optics would make you one if they don't already. Although, it may not work for all SLR lenses.

Amazing! i'm sold!

Wow, great stuff, Larry - I'm sold on the micro 35... I'm not seeing any ground glass, etc. and I believe the results will be even better using Sony HDV, which is much more forgiving in low light and has higher resolution...

Incredible. Really gives you something you can't get with mini-dv otherwise...

Great stuff - thanks for posting!
