    This is encouraging for buying cheaper shortends. If I can get hold of a 2 perf camera and affordable zoom lens, now just need to confirm if can I get the film scanned in Australia. Looking good so...

  • Has anyone seen footage from a BMPCC on the big screen? 
    I know someone shot a horror flick on the BMPCC that ended up in a festival in NYC.  I'm wondering if BMPCC footage looks embarrassing in a theatre or if it just looks like S16.

    It probably depends on which section of the market you're aiming for, but in my neck of the woods (rental houses, Alexa Mini, Amira, Red, DXL etc) the standard 24V battery connector is still a 3 pi...
  • Need information on Bolex H16 
    Thanks, Dom. That sums it up well and clears my uncertainty. I've made many errors so far in shooting with the Bolex, but I imagine that's part of the learning curve and knowing the camera.  S...

  • Next step? 
    With that limited a budget (and you'll need lenses too), you're not going to get much of a step up in quality. A Bolex will be better than a K3 for sure, but you're still dealing with the limitatio...

    Used Cinetape for sale. Works perfectly. Come with extension tubes, 2 data cables & 2 power cables.
