I recently purchased an SRII s16 for personal works, it's my first foray into shooting sequential film and I had a few questions. I understand most members here are very experienced so I apologize in advance for my ignorance. I have been reading the manual and watching many tutorials online, but some questions I cannot find answers for.
1. The camera has a CCD video camera module installed for use as a viewfinder. I am not familiar with this setup, the video out is component via a BNC plug. Is there any way to feed this to a hdmi monitor like my small hd dp4? or would I need a bigger monitor with component ports?
Also, would it ever be possible to record the video tap with a time code, then use that specify what parts of the negative to have scanned/telecined?
2. I plan to use my arri b mount S16 superspeeds on this PL mount camera, I need to adapt and I'm looking for the most efficient and reliable way to do so. You can pick up CNC American made adapters for pretty cheap, anyone tried these vs the chunky and expensive MTF/Visual products style ones? I'm also wondering if there is a way to move these lenses between my digital bolex (s16 c-mount) and the Arri without constantly having to take them in for collimating.
3. My favourite lens is my anginuex 5.9 ( arri-B ). I think it's only a 16mm lens but it does cover the digital bolex sensor in s16 mode, however I believe Bolex s16 is slightly smaller than a true s16 film camera. To that end, I'm wondering if it will work, has anyone shot with this lens on the SRII?
Thanks very much in advance to anyone who has advice.
