Re: Rokinon 35mm

Nice rig. Could you let me know what you have attached as an audio recorder and how you attach it to the camera and tripod? Many thanks.

Nice rig - James what magic arm do you use - I'm using a fairly cheap one and my monitor keeps working it's way loose.

Re: Rokinon 35mm

I'm using a similar setup with similar equipment but with Zeiss primes coupled via the Metabones Speedbooster to improve the contrast and add that magical extra stop. The Tascam DR-40 4 track PCM recorder provides phantom power to the Rode NTG-3 and records 'ambient' via it's on-board stereo pair. I also run an audio feed from the DR-40, direct to the Vg20's aux input for a 'camera' copy of the mixed 4 track recording.

Re: Rokinon 35mm

I like the 'swing out' design of their new matte box as it will speed up your lens changes. James, is the Rokinon 35mm a 'full frame' lens or APS-C/'Super35'?

PS: There's a company in China currently advertising on ebay who offer the 'cine mod' to new and second hand lenses from Canon and Zeiss. I've asked them for a quote to modify my collection of Zeiss FF lenses as re-fitting the rubber focus gear rings is a nuisance.

Re: Rokinon 35mm

the rokinon 35mm provides full frame coverage.

i am also looking int a rokinon duo-35mm/1.8 & 85mm/1.8.

keeping focus on an interview set seems reasonable.

i wonder how i would do in the field with the rokinons mated to my fs100.

any other users care to share their experiences with the rokinons?

any and all thoughts are appreciated.

be well.

Re: Rokinon 35mm

Rob I use a 24mm Samyang with a focal reducer for an effective 26mm on a VG30. It's all run and gun in low light and I end up with about 70% in focus shots. It's still better overall than my NX70 that is easy to keep in focus but lacking in light in the same conditions.

For daytime shots I use a Rokinon 16mm with a glassless adapter as the focal reducer degrades the quality a small amount.
