New Zeiss Lenses for Nikon F Mounts
 
All those who have invested in the HD-100 to Nikon lens mount adapter should be very excited....! Zeiss have just announced a new range of ZF lenses that will have a Nikon F mount.
The first lens looks like a Plannar T 50mm 1.4 then there is a Plannar T 85mm 1.4 being realesed not long after. These lenses have all been colour matched through the whole range.

And given any nikon lens on a HD100 will be manual focus and exposure anyway (won't it?), there is no difference in using a Nikon lens of Zeiss ZF lens except for optical performance, you can bet the Zeiss will be very good even wide open.

Guy, these Zeiss lenses should be very nice wide open. The fact that they mention that the all the lense have been colour matched etc, nearly says to me that they have seen the potential to sell these lenses to the indie Film & TV market . With 5 lenses in the proposed line up, it kind of looks like a nice set of 'affordable' super speeds for anyone who has the Nikon adapter or a Mini35...?

such a shame there is such a high crop factor with these lens (7x) and there really arn't any wide angle options. Yet another reason we need larger sensors!

The premiums we are being charges for 2/3" sensors is a joke.look at a Nikon D50 with a single 1.1" sensor (1.5x crop from 35mm) single CCD. Complete camera with lens for $650. Then you have the Canon 5D with a full 35mm CMOS sensor for around $3500 (no lens).

It just goes to show how much the price of manufacturing larger sensors has dropped over the last few years, its time the video industry steps up and gets out of the dark ages in this area.

You could shoot a film with a Digital SLR if your were happy with 5fps.

Actually, they are perfect for stop-motion.

This is why the RED camera is such an interesting prospect.

Hey Tim how can you use the camera for stop motion/time laps, I can't find it in the manual. You ever tried it?

I was referring to Digital SLR cameras. THe HD100 doesn't have a built in timelapse function, but there are applications that are capable of capturing timelapse from any firewire source.
On the mac, I've used an application called BTVPro. I doubt it works with HDV yet, but it works really well with DV via firewire.

i've just finished a 30 sec TVC with the HD-100 and we had at least 5-7 sec of the TVC with timelapse.
I shot all the timelapse sequences with a Canon 1D MKII and the Canon Intervalometer ( i have been doing this for 3 years now). For any HD (tape) or TV only projects i would never shoot film again for a timelapse.
The results i have been getting with the 1D MKII are amazing. No the 1D MKII doesn't have the latitude of film ( but not far off). but what it does have going for it is, it cost effective ( no stock cost, no processing & no telecine transfers...!) it gives you close to a 4K frame size, and with After Effects on a Power Book you can preview the timelapse there on location. You can output a cineon file or a quicktime (pretty much whatever you please), send it to the post house for grading and there you have it.
Tim Burtons latest film 'Corpse Bride' was shot entirely with Canon 1D MkII's....!
Wow i have drifted off thread.....sorry.

5fps @ 12.8MP (64MP/s)
or 8fps @ 6.8MP (55MP/s)

HD100 = 55MP/s (per sensor)

Therefore each HD100 sensors is pushing out about 15% less pixels per second than my DSLR (Nikon D2x).
