M2+XL2 music vid

I figured you folks might want to see this. Example of how the XL2 and Redrock M2 pair up. Sorry for the compression.

DIR: Mike Boers.

thanks for putting up something done with M2. Very nice movie. The only question: The scene which begins at 12sec. and ends at 16sec. You seem to use there wide angle lens. What lens? And did You compensate edge falloff in editing phase for that shot?

Unfortunatly, I had to use my Tamron/Nikon 24mm

It is not the sharpest lens on thge planet and want a better one, but it's f 2.5 and we had limited light, so what can you do?

I think edges get a bit soft, but I applied a guassian Sharpen to the whole clip to help out.

24x36mm? That is really good to hear, because it's almost main issue for me - to get wide angle without vingetting.

Yeah, the M2 is great. Not to sound like a broken record, but my main gripe is that you need a relay lens (20X on XL2 is huge). I am planning on shooting a feature that takes place mainly in cab, so it's a bit of a problem...

But yeah, the GG in the M2 is amazing, and I think the pictue speaks for itself. Great product
