The surfing shot was with an old 300mm Canon FD Flourite lens with a C mount adapter, and also a lens support....I modified an old Bolex long lens support system I got off Ebay.
For these frame grabs I just screen grabbed images off quicktime player, sized to my screen size...so there might be a bit of odd stuff going on from resizing the quicktime window(along with saving out as a jpeg for web). But these are from a full 1920 x 1080 transfer. I asked to have the full frame visible, I dig the dirty edges of the film gate.
Also want to mention to anyone else shooting 16mm or S16mm, with a similar camera....I was able to see my recent footage projected in a DI theater, on a cinema grade 2K projector, from the HD files. First time I got to see my Bolex footage on a big screen, with a professional projection system. I had a lot of questions before this as to what Bolex footage would look like in a theater, I thought it might not hold up, or might be too soft. I was really, really surprised. It looked so much better than I had even hoped for. I thought it held up beautifully on a big screen. Colors were so intense, images that I did get critical focus on were sharp, and overall in motion it looked to me like a moving painting. Gave me so much hope for what is possible...
