and realy be able to control the DOP...

I was thinking a Russian Super Rotator would be fantastic....
actually have just ordered a tilt and shift nikon lens. Should be fun!

Phil,

Some really nice work there, are you using colourista too?

When you get a moment any possibility you could post a couple of full sized (even uncompressed) frames from the EX1/letus footage?

I'd never really considered one of these adaptors but it seems pretty nice and the highlight over exposure seems a little more gentle than without. Did you do all the stuff at 720 or is there any 1080 examples - im interested to see what the resolution is like through the adaptor as well, whether the system holds detail very well.

thanks a million

paul

thanks, just using magic bullet looks.

I have a 720p version that I have uploaded to the Dvi ftp server but just waiting on Chris Hurd to link it.

All of it was shot in 1080p 25 35vbr apart from the overcranking which was 720p. I won't be able to give you any untreated stuff until next weekend as am away on a shoot from today and away from those rushes.

Thanks Phil, once you get a chance to catch up it'd be great to see some tifs from that 1080 stuff.

Good luck on the shoot, hope you get your replacement letus!

Phil, awesome footage, as usual.

ex1 extreme.mov @ 30 secs: I have to laugh at the expression on the guys face and walk, as he crosses the road with coffee in hand. 60fps makes that shot a laugh riot.

Phil, just curious - are you using a rails support system for your letus, or is it light enough to hang off the filter threads. If so, what rails system?

Maybe he had to pay for that coffee in dollars. ;)
