That would be me. I can't go on about the Tokinas enough - internal Focus, internal zoom, hard stop on infinity and all the same 77mm thread.

Thrown various shots and tests into a public google drive.

ProRes Film DR, here's the FCPX color settings.

I'll balance the tripod next time.

Also keep in mind that the Rocketfish ND I used is a cheap filter...

Lovely.

Seriously I know some people have made the BMC look like just another video camera but there are plenty that are making it look Alexa like.

edit: And it's great to see what some have achieved simply with FCPX settings.

That looks wonderful! There are definitely going to be people making this camera look like an Alexa! I hope to be one in the near future! :D

Very nice color, the acting and the composition like Ingmar Bergman films :D

Linus does like playing chess, though maybe he might have second thoughts about playing with death...

The Nikon version of the Tokina 28-80 f/2.8 can be had for around $300, the Canon for around $500. It's got a fair bit of breathing though.

The 20-35 is beautiful and has very little breathing, and will be my main BMC lens.

I'm gonna pop out soon and shoot some breathing tests with them - ill throw them up on Vimeo shortly.

Not so bad.

I recently saw Super8 which was shot a la Michael Bay with anamorphic lenses. When they pulled focus breathing was horrible but I'm sure no one noticed as they were focused on how REALLY HORRIBLE the movie was.

owch, strong opinion. I quite liked it. Reminded me of 80's films, feel good movies, following kids and adventure. Just with more visual effects. Sorry to go off topic but couldn't let that one rest.

I think Super 8 was great. If you were child/teenager during the 80s and lived in the USA, this movie is good watch. I much rather this than having my childhood raped with with bad remakes.

JJ Abrams made Super 8, not Michael Bay.

My point was that Abrams used anamorphics a la Michael Bay with tell tale blue streaks through every EXT. - NIGHT shot. (I wonder if anyone ever said: "more in frame practicals! More exposed lights! We need more blue streaks in this shot!)

My other point was that those lenses breath like mad yet the average viewer doesn't notice.

Killer Joe was shot with Ultraprimes and some of the focus racks breathed like mad. And it was shot by Caleb Deschanel, who I would consider a master. High end lenses still breath.

I agree, average viewers don't notice/don't care as long as they are engrossed in the movie. We just happen to watch out for this stuff.
