Hv20 with RNG35mm Adapter

I've just got myself the RNG35 and here is some quick test footage

excuse the shaky cam, need to find a solution to be able to hold the unit (rails/adapter/hv20) better.

yeah i would say the combo of the lens/focus screen. Bit hard to know because I haven't got any other lenses to test it with yet.

Looks like a 50 mm and the Bokeh is huge. Nice footage. The Tonk cat rules and it is interesting that all cats perch on the windowsill like that. An awesome shot would be a macro of that cats eye with daylight reflection from the window. You could probably sell a stock shot of that for a title composite in a horror feature.

Keep up the good work.

PS - Just curious what your workflow is with the HV20. Are you taking it out of HDV for editing/color correction?

I got a Macro lens now so I'll have to reshoot Stephen Kings "Cats Eye" :)

I capture to Avid which captures to MXF long GOP format and then once editing is done then out to HDV or any other format.

Waiting for my RNG35 upgrade, should be interesting to see how the footage will compare.
