    I bought a $10 capture device for personal use, but I wouldn't trust it in a business environment. The cheap ones all seem to capture in Motion JPEG, which really isn't ideal.

    I probably should have prefaced this by saying that my day job is as an AV tech at a corporation. All tech purchases are made by IT through a preferred vendor, and I have to make a business case for...

    Suspicions are confirmed, the Atomos CONNECT 4K is just a generic $10 capture device with the Atomos name stamped onto it. Here's the EposVox review.

    I call bull, Amazon has tons of movies & TV shows that are merely poor VHS transfers, and it's been that way for years, they don't care one bit about quality and the customers viewing experience.

    You'll have to rotoscope this one.

    I'm not a green screen expert, I've avoided it due to the large potential for something to go wrong. With that said, here are a few general best practices when...

    Thanks Greg, that's very informative.

    I think the Tokina 24-40mm f/2.8 came out in the 70s, so maybe that gives you some kind of idea on what coatings and adhesives were used. I actually got my...

    I've love an OLED TV, but I don't watch enough movies and TV shows to warrant the premium price tag. I'll probably end up with a mid-range full-array local dimming TV, but very few TV's natively...

    Some other sites are offering competing deals. BestBuy has a 70" Samsung TV for $530, but it doesn't have local dimming, so I don't think I'll get one, but it's tempting.

    Thanks Joshua,

    Since this is just for fun, I'm trying to do this with gear I already own, however, I've been toying with the idea of getting a focal reducer, which is why I'm curious if throwing a...

    A number of people seem to have misunderstood my questions, so let me clarify a few things:

    This is for FUN, I'm not sabotaging a paid gig with dubious faux anamorphic.

    A streak filter costs <$20, I haven't priced laser cutting the ellipse aperture yet; Tito Ferradans sells ellipse apertures on eBay for $12, but my lens isn't on the compatible list.

  16. What are the best practices in simulating anamorphic with spherical lenses?

    There have been a few posts on anamorphic and simulated anamorphic, which has got me thinking about trying to simulate anamorphic for fun.

    I've seen mods that replace a prime's aperture with a...

    What about online services like 3dhubs.com? I had lens gears printed a few years ago and mailed to my home, but I can't remember which online service I used.
  21. GH5 Has Viltrox updated the optics in all of their focal reducers?

    I've read that the Viltrox EF-M2 II has updated optics and performs better than the first version, but I'm wondering if the Viltrox NF-M43X has had the

    I use a Sigma 17-50mm for stills, but it's really not a good lens for video, as it has a very short focus throw, it's not parfocal, and has a lot of focus breathing as I remember.
