Even for being such a slow lens focusing can be a challenge but I do like the fact that you can get just a bit shallow dof to separate your subject from the background, I just don't like that extreme shallow dof where you see the operator hunt for the right focus on moving objects, focus needs to be spot on, always. With a bit blurry background you get a much more usable dof but still retain that "dslr" kind of look, in that way this lens is fast enough. I only wish the focus ring was a bit more accurate.

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

For the few I haven't answered, thx for the kind words :) unexpectedly the camera has become my personal therapist the past weeks, what started with testing the camera to just have some fun filming inbetween busy wedding seasons has turned into dealing with the hard facts of life.

Both my parents are sick, my mother had a hart attack this weekend and almost died and my father got the message today his cancer is terminal. It makes me feel selfish thinking about the fact that I enjoy my day out with the camera and the editing that follows but it helps me to clear my head. Life isn't always fair...

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

Sorry to hear that Noa

Life can be cruel yes and please send our best wishes to both of them.

My friend Fred, here (the one that was born in Antwerp) has to also rush over to Holland for 4 weeks to care for his Dad who has broken his hip for the 3rd time now and cannot look after himself (then again he is 91!!)

Hope you stay strong over this difficult time

Chris

Noa, you are right- life isn't always fair, I know, but it keeps coming at you, and you either deal with it or roll over. And that is what you are doing-dealing with it.

Sorry to hear your news. Small comfort I know, but you will have a lot of support here among the boys and girls on this forum.

all the best
Rod

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

if you need narrator/voice over, try Fiverr: Graphics, marketing, fun and more online services for $5
you can get a very professional voice over for $5

I use that one one of my project (shoot with FS100)

Wow, wish both your parents the best of luck!

At least your finding work to be therapeutic. Most people can easily fall ill themselves due to unexpected news.

Just keep doing what your doing!

My dad (he's 70) is tough as nails and he has a humorous, almost bizarre approach to dealing with his condition, when he called me up yesterday to tell the bad news he said "I have good news, you"r going to be rich soon!", he just takes it one day at a time and I try to do this as well.

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

I am 71 and I think I understand your dad's logic a little more now than I did when I was younger. I often tell my wife that we do not need to leave a lot of money for our daughter to buy more shoes with !!!!

I wish them both well.

Keep doing what you are doing as it is the best for your health and indirectly theirs too.

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

I have been checking out the Fiverr website and it looks like a great recourse, was thinking about using a voice over for my next short, for a price of about 5 dollar that's something I really would like to try for my personal work.

The question I have is if I would borrow some from let's say, shakespeare, would the same laws apply as with music composers where (I think) after 70 years after they die you can use their music if you would compose it yourself. Would the same apply for authors of the written word if you would quote it in a film, either in writing or spoken?

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

Noa,

First and most importantly, hang in there and do what ever you need to do while you go through your difficult time. Believe me, it is something I do know about. Both of my parents are gone. This last year I have seen more trauma and death then in my whole life, and I am 53! Before I logged on just now I was eulogising another good friend I lost. All therapy is good, no matter where you find it.

Second,
You are KILLING me! My professional shooting is so boring it is painful to watch sometimes. I look at your shorts and the artist in me starts screaming to get out. You have nothing but admiration from me. I can't shoot as well as you but as soon as I get a chance to get out of here I am going to shoot something just for me!

Third,
you guys are way ahead of me on the presets. I still have not had time to play with them. Your "look" this time is exactly what I want! Please verify, did you tweak PP5 in camera and post or is it PP5 tweaked in post only?

Fourth,
Actic Buterfly. A quick search found kits ranging from $125.00 to $300.00 U.S. Wow??? I currently use sensor swabs with the eclipse solution.

Fifth,
Chris, I will help you write the first for words of a narration poem, you can finish it..........Duck, Duck, Goose, Goose..... :) :) :)

Re: New nex-ea50 film: Sahara

thx again for the supporting words all, means a lot. About the pp5 preset I used, I adjusted in post, I will have to come back to you in a few days on this one to show what exactly I"ve done. I edit in Edius just that you know.
That butterfly thing is ridiculous expensive yes, but it's very effective, with a blower dust might still land back on the sensor but it's worth a try and I didn't know you where a scriptwriter as well, you are a man of many talents. :)

So just the factory standard pp5 and a slight YUV curve change in edius + 20% extra saturation in the black and grey balance and 15% extra sharpness. The values in the yuv curve (the "y" part) are: (46,30)(75,64)(138,129)(212,196)
