In Topic: Using modern PL mount lens on film cameras?

07 January 2019 - 07:32 AM

Hi, I´m using set of Sony Cine Alta 4k primes on Arriflex 435 with great results.

They are T2 lenses in whole range and extremely sharp wide open, so pairing with lower sensitivity film stock is very nice.

 


In Topic: First steps a student should take to become a serious filmmaker

Now, in digital days, it´s maybe good to start with cheap Canon 5D mk.II and three fix-focal lenses and a set of ND´s. You can buy it for 1000 dollars, and start to shoot.

Shoot, edit, project and hear the critics. Then repeat.

And then, if you want to move to shooting on film, one or two years later, you can buy cheap 16mm camera and start to learn that craft.

Digital is great for beginners, but I would stay away from iPhone (however it is a great tool), but something like 5D with manual control over everything, is import for understanding and developing your skills as filmmaker. Even if you would like to be director, you should understand basic technical and visual principles.
