    The ice cream shots are wide open. I've seen a little bit of that, but more than that they are hazy wide open, though not that apparent in this video

    Thanks!
    Resolve unfortunately doesn't work with anything but blackmagic output cards as far as I can tell so it's sort of a non-starter for me since we use the matrox MXO boxes.

    I'm not a professional colorist but I started with the film luts people have been talking about: http://bmcuser.com/showthread.php?25...3540#post53540

    There are MGAs that are compatible with color, I'm not sure where I found those. They're kind of buried in a long thread. After you load a lut into color, it generally look pretty crushed, but that's the starting point. After that I just played with the luma curve and increased saturation.

    Alternatively, just mess with the saturation and luma curve and skip the LUT.

    Tight, not sure I can say play free, but they essentially are with the old nikons since their barrels have little resistance. Having the lever to change aperture is like having a stepless iris barrel. though you can't tell where your f-stop is, other than by eye.
    If there is play try putting a tiny shred of a manila envelope in between the adapter and the lens. It tightens it up.

    Good stuff. I've been thinking about getting some Nikon glass. The last time I had anyone was when the d80 came out...

    Nice. What adapter do you use?

    started a topic Nikon 35mm 1.4

    Nikon 35mm 1.4

    Testing out my old trusty 35mm 1.4 ais on an overcast evening as my buds get ice cream

    http://vimeo.com/61085060

    Camera's on my shoulder with a zacuto evf and ki pro mini as an hdmi converter/audio recorder/counter balance. They work well together. Though it's power hungry and the ki pro takes a minute to boot

    Been on about 10 production days with the camera. Solid. No problem being on 10+ hrs at a time.
