  • Zeiss ZF2 vs Contax 
    Hey guys, I have a Ef mount Ursa camera and I wanted to buy a Zeiss set of primes that would emulate the look of the CP.2.  From my readings, the CP.2 have the same optics as the Zeiss co...

  • Film base scratch question 
     No, it shouldn’t, but the mass of film in intermittent motion is so small that you can afford to have loops of the best size. You relieve the camera of mechanical strain and give the fi...
  • Ye olde 144 degree shutter angle and lightmeter rant 
    If I may help with the understanding: Paillard wouldn’t get tired of repeating that the H camera has a focal plane shutter acting very close to the film. The early models have 192 degrees ope...

     Jack Rizzo turned me on to Podio. They use it at Metropolis for work orders too. I have ours set up so that when Benn finishes a scan and marks it as copied to the client drive, I get a notif...
  • How much does Dynamic Range matter? 
     You're still wrong; it's still a 16-stop sensor. It's just going to be recorded as a coarse 16-stops. Yes, it's probably too coarse to be a useful for a 16-stop sensor, but that doesn't have...

  • Arri Alexa EV $6000 by 2019? 
     Yes of course, thus my point about "depends" and "know your situation you're in".If it is a demand from Discovery then don't even bother trying to argue them, you'll be wasting your breath....
