old Schneider lenses
Posted 21 June 2005 - 11:34 AM
For an upcoming commercial I was interested in using and old set of Schneider cine lenses. Not sure, but they look like 40-50 years old Arri II types.
Besides the discomfort of no focus gears, tinny marks and using a bayo/PL adaptor, what can I expect from these lenses?
It's not a money consideration, since everything else is decently budgeted: good crew, Arri 435, lights, grip, etc.

Yes, some 1st AC don't like to try "other than standard" stuff, but a good AC + Gaffer will always enjoy helping you to make it more interesting.
Sometimes is just more fun to use equipment that is off the beaten path.
I love experimenting on commercials, just as long as deliver the goodies....
