"Digital S-8" - lenses to create a S8 look?
Posted 06 July 2012 - 05:22 AM
Would this work as a setup? What lenses would be goodie's to try and pick up? The first use will be shoot some interviews (which I want to look artful, not sterile - shallow depth of field fine).
Any help greatly, greatly appreciated!

Not quite a Super 8 look I guess, but pretty cool though

Unfortunately that degree of vignetting might get a little overwhelming on a feature doc though. Do you think a diff adapter would allow more light in and reduce that?

Save your time and shoot real Super8...

To my eye it doesn't look 100% like actual film; but having said that the results look no worse than applying cine grunge style plugins to digital footage in post.
Also you did mention wanting to use a small unobtrusive camera.

I'm not sure there's actually any vinjetting going on there - this adaptor didn't have a rotating screen - and I think that tends to add to the "hot spot" look in the middle which is probably what you are noticing. I don't know much about these - if you look around on youtube for clips made with a rotating screen you should hopefully spot the difference.
This DOF adaptor is pretty much the same as the one described here:
Doing focus pulls on this kind of rig for a doco might get tricky
