We had some workshops with Michael Cioni and the DXL2 here at Panavision Melbourne, first time we've seen the camera in this country. Looks pretty impressive, lots of features specifically tailored for ACs, best EVF I've seen, intuitive menu, 1600 native ISO and the pictures it made were excellent. There's been a lot of thought put into this design.
Sorry for my picture quality, we had very low light levels (even just candlelight at one point) because the camera is so sensitive, and my iphone camera doesn't quite perform as well.
One of the most fun aspects was getting to test the multitude of lenses that Panavision have for large format cinematography, including the new Primo Artistes, Primo 70s, T series anamorphics, and vintage lines like the System 65s (from the 90s), Sphero 65s (originally made for MGM in the late 50s and rediscovered a few years ago), Super Panavision 70s (Lawrence of Arabia, My Fair Lady etc) and of course the incredible 1.25x squeeze anamorphic Ultra Panavision 70s used on Ben Hur and reborn for the Hateful Eight and Rogue One.
We also had a T1 Ultra Speed converted for large format; wide open at 1600 native ISO the candles were almost too bright! DOF was ridiculous. The ACs went a bit pale when that one came out.
At least two DXL2s will now stay in Australia as part of the rental fleet, so I'm looking forward to seeing what local filmmakers and crews will do with them.

Last Friday's office. Time lapse edition!!
We we're shooting a "Rube Goldberg Machine". Didn't build the entire thing so we shot bits and pieces to edit together to look like it was operational.
