Mattebox for car commercials?

29 January 2019 - 12:36 PM

Hi all, i'm wondering what the safest mattebox to put on a black arm / russian arm is for a car commercial where i assume the DOP will use polarizers and different filters while shooting. (And i want a clear filter in front of the lens for possible chips flying from the car we're filming.) Obviously i feel like a clamp on mattebox feels a bit risky. But wouldn't a mattebox with rods cause small vibrations near the lens while going at faster speeds?

 

What's your experience with this? What works, and what doesn't?

 

Best,

Canomatic R lenses

03 November 2018 - 09:32 PM

Hi, i got a Canomatic R 58mm 1.2 and are planning on getting the remaining lenses from the series. I got a sweet deal to rehouse them with a contact i have. But im wondering. Why is there almost no information at all about these lenses?

Ive done some basic tests with the 58 that i own on a point and shoot with an adapter and i like the look of it. Ofcourse there are some imperfections but thats trendy anyway haha! Im doing a test at a rental on an alexa mini with an ef mount next week to see how it is before deciding.

But im just a bit nervous since it seems like no-one has rehoused these lenses before.

If you know anything or have links to any info about the Canomatic R lenses please let me know!

Getting in to lens service & re-housing?

28 October 2018 - 04:33 PM

Hi, sorry if this has been posted before. 

 

I'm wondering, what is a good way to start learning to service lenses and eventually learn the re-housing process? It's not much of it at all online. I've taken apart some cheap lenses i bought just for practice & cleaned them. But i'd like to learn more. Switching mounts, making the f/t-stops click free, putting on better focus rings and so on. Any ideas on where to start? 

 

 

Best,

Rasmus


Winter tips & tricks as an AC?

25 October 2018 - 02:02 PM

Hi,

 

Winter is slowly but surely coming. What are your fellow AC's best tricks for shooting in the winter? Any must know tips and tricks? Good gloves for pulling focus etc.

Also! I read somewhere that you can use Cilica Gel bags near the lens in humid conditions. Does this work when moving between warm interior and cold exteriors in below 0 circumstances as well?

 

I've been AC'ing for a while but always strive to get better!

 

Thanks!

Custom mattebox-mount for the UDM-1?

20 September 2018 - 03:36 PM

Hi,

 

A while ago i saw someone who had built their own mount for the udm-1 meter that was put on the mattebox in the same way as a brow / french flag. Does anyone have any ideas on where i can get this made in europe? I'm afraid i can't find any reference pictures. But i'm sure that some of you know what i mean.

 

Best,

Rasmus
