Equipment + Settings
Camera: Panasonic DVX100A, 24PA, f/1.6 (wide open), 1/1000th Shutter Speed, Century Optics 0.7X wide lens, Focus was on "84" which is Pana-Jargon for 20-30 feet away. No filtration.
Light: Dedolight DLHM4-300 (150W/24V, full spotted in the general direction of camera)
Next, I racked the focus to "1" which is macro focus on this camera.
I wanted to see if the flare was any different without the wide angle lens attachment. Turns out the flare is even more pronounced using only the built-in lens, without any add on's. I actually liked it better without the wide angle lens.
As I "stopped down" the pretty blue flare started to give way to the "star effect" I'm accustomed to seeing from this camera. This still was taken at f/2.8, I think.
By the time I reached f/5.6 the blue flare was completely gone.
Just for fun, I popped in a Schneider Digicon 1 filter in the matte box and also aligned the Dedolight (still on full spot) directly into the lens of the camera and discovered this interesting effect.
For the last shot, I flooded the Dedolight to see what would happen. Here's what I found.
So, as you can see, it's possible to get some pretty neat flares with this camera and a point source!
