In my newly converted set of vintage Lomo's, they all cover Super 35, except for the 28mm. It does however cover APS-C size. If I drop in resolution to 2.8K it will cover on the Mini. But is there a way to shoot full Super 35/3.2K aperture but just zoom in slightly on the viewing so it doesn't freak people out when they watch the displays? I'd rather do that than change resolution halfway through a card. Possible?

I've had a preset with a slight crop on the framelines and a 75% matte to "hide" the vignette. Wont zoom in as such but it works well enough.

I used the Arri framelines tool as it has more options than in camera

Yeah! 
 

I have done that before on here.

You can choose the format you want and then you go to SCALING and set the crop :)

 

Download the XML and insert it in the camera.

When you're shooting and you have to put the 28mm just go to the Aspect Ratio menu in the camera and choose the one you created.. you could name it as: THE AMAZING 28mm LOMO ASPECT RATIO or similar :D.

 

You might want to get the PNG or the FRAMELEADER and put it in the Master HDD for post.

 

Have a good day!

Thanks - it worked fine. My AC set it up like you said, with a preset. Clients never even noticed on set.
