Amazing latitude

Or i should say: amazing latitude illusion!

I shot this at 12:00 with a Letus35fe attached to my DVX-100.
See how much more accettable are the whites when you use such an adapter! (best appreciated seen in a tv post)
download the DVPAL to be seen in your TV monitor

Mpeg4 movie:

The mpg4 movie seen on the computer monitor really doesn't render the quality of the video seen in the tv post
(i didn't exactly rotated the letus thus the small edge upper left..)

What f-stop are you shooting at typically? It looks like you could benefit from a little tighter aperture.

It was wide open. I wanted that shallow DOF. Sincerely, i love infinite DOF only on IMAX films. For TV i prefere the shallowest DOF possible.
I think that the smaller the screen the film is aimed at, the shallower the DOF should be.

Once i saw a 35mm film at the IMAX and it was fatiguing to see 10% of the image being in focus and hundreds square meters of blur!

It's not just a question of depth of field. Lenses perform better if stopped down a bit. It's a bad habit to shoot wide open, all the time. You'll find the image to be sharper, and the bokeh better, if you stop down around f3 or f4, and you'll still have that nice dof.

Of course it does have to do with dof, part of the reason I asked is that it seems that too much was out of focus even when it was your subject, i.e. the computer desk.

I think it's a decision related to style. Some want more bokeh some less. In that case i wanted only her to be in focus.

Oh absolutely, I said its bad habit to do it all the time, also I said bokeh quality, not quantity. You'll find a much more pleasing, diffusive out of focus quality to your backgrounds if you stop down. Depending on the diffusor screen you might begin to see the blades of the aperture in the spectral highlights as soon as you begin to engage them.
