SG35 - DVX100. Exterior hand held footage

Hiya,
Had the pleasure of meeting Daniel Morgen from this board today, he travelled here to collect his SG35 ready for his final project at uni.

We managed to get out and shoot a run and gun sequence. Weather was on our side for once. Anyhow, lens was a Canon FD 50mm F1.4. Only problem, is after us adjusting the support system and taking the dvx on and off a few times, a few bits of dust got on the pcx lens, so is on the footage. Good thing is, the lens is a removable part for cleaning purposes.

Below is the link to the footage (right click and save as):

Wayne that's lovely.

It's just amazing how these shots transport you the same way film does.

The music and the old man helps too :)

The footage was very nice even tough shaky. But I still would love to see some uncompressed frames from some SG35 footage. All I have seen are these highly compressed mov. files. I have been thinking about buying SG35 but can't make the decission without seeing some uncompressed footage first.

focusing

Not easy to focus on the move with a DVX100 with it's heavy adapter-magnified nose diving forward, no focus assist, and the necessary 90 to 180 degrees rotation of the Canon lens' plus the unwelcome SLR lens breathing . I'm impressed of the result with no tripd and no Steadycam.
Is softness = lack of sharpness ??

Hello everyone,

As Wayne said I picked up the adapter today - Everything seems very nice, sharp and bright. We tried a vivitar 70-205 lens which looked fantastic on the television. I'll get you some grabs from the lens from my shoot this weekend.

Thanks Quinn - as it happens I got my very late delivery of the vivitar zoom and 1.4 off ebay so I took those along with me. Your lens was waiting for me when I got back. My 1.4 isn't ssc. Any ideas which is better? Thanks for the lens anyway.. will let you know how this weekend goes.

Thanks Dan.

I was getting annoyed with people always doing 'quick' tests on these 35mm adapters because it doesnt give u a sense of its full potential. However... ! this was shot in about 10 minutes in a rish to get to the train station. If I was used to the flip (or had a magnet) it would be smoother and sharper.

Very nice...I'm with the "give us high res" camp! There's a few spots in the footage...around 12s. I'm guessing just dirt on the lens?

I'm beginning to realize that our senior citizens often make the best subjects. Sometimes they're crazzzzzy (ask Steve Dinkins) and most times, they're simply majestic. They deserve more respect (like this clip) from our lenses.

Gorgeous clips, Wayne, and no vignetting at all. Can't wait to receive mine...

Just one more thing: did you also try other primes by any chance, like a 24 or 35mm?

Thanks Piet,

Yes we tried a 28mm F2.8, and also a 75 - 205mm F3.5 zoom. All worked great with no vignetting.
