I've recently went through all the ups and downs of harnessing my FS100 on a stabilizer, so a couple of thoughts I can share.
Darren has demoed some great footage using the HD2000 hand-held; are...

I'm sure you do; I just think Jay's logic was convincing. And that none of us - myself included - exposes perfectly 100% of time, especially in R&G; this is what post is for:)
I hope no offence...
11-06-2012, 05:29 AM
I for one agree with you, Jay :)
Poor exposure cannot be gotten away with!
10-10-2012, 09:23 AM
Generally speaking you're right. However - as I said - I do have around 2 seconds drop time, as before - and yet, with the specific configuration I described (the base spreads at 90 deg relative to...

Upgrading to the X-10 double-arm has certainly improved dumping the camera movement while walking; it also doubled the pool up-down distance (obviously). But I do have another issue that I didn’t...

I have upgraded to the X-10 system, and it's even better now :)
Thanks guys for your opinions - :)
OK, I did put "crop factor" in quotation marks, didn't I?
I understand the NEX is an APS-C lens, while the Tokina 17mm is a FF lens - but their focal lengths are supposed to be expressed in FF...
I know it's a dumb question, but I really got confused... It's about the "crop factor" again, so please bear it with me :)
Below are 2 screengrabs straight from the FS100; one is with the pancake...

Yes - I was aware the fully open aperture would not be the sharpest setting, as with any lens - but especially ultra-wide like this.
However: if I asked you a simple question - basing on the grab...
09-23-2012, 07:10 AM
And here you are wrong - this particular grab is straight from the FS100 without any filter, and the exposure was found with auto shutter speed. Also, PP was off so no influence of any special detail...

Indoors scenes (without any filters) show exactly the same difference in contrast/sharpness of this lens between fully open at F3.5, and around F8.
09-23-2012, 06:55 AM
Needless to say this is the best it can get at F3.5; F8 is better - but is such a huge difference normal?
My ND is the same as usual (Heliopan), no problems with other lenses...

I bought an FD-mount Tokina 17mm F3.5 off eBay, and am very disappointed with how soft it is when fully opened at F3.5:
Could anyone tell me...
09-16-2012, 11:12 PM
Which mount Samyang?
09-16-2012, 02:39 AM
Yeah, sure great lens, but:
- I'm after something I could use on both the FS100 and Letus Elite (35mm adapter)
- as for the FS100, the announced 10-18 NEX (with ISS) looks more attractive
09-15-2012, 07:02 AM
Morgan, what do you think of this, then:
It'd certainly be...
09-15-2012, 06:54 AM
Thanks for your opinion. Yes - the lens on the picture is the thing I'm considering (well, have been - after Derran's info on the upcoming NEX 10-18, I'd buy the FD 14 if and only if I find it really...
09-15-2012, 06:19 AM
Why do I need 14? Well:
- to go even wider than with my current 24 on Letus
- to have an alternative to the pancake/wide converter combo on the FS100, with (possibly) better IQ and able to accept...
09-15-2012, 06:01 AM
Derran, are you sure the 1018 will accept filters? As with all ultra-wides, its petal hood is fixed permanently so a no-no for large vario-NDs for sure. Perhaps at least a fixed ND can be screwed in...
09-15-2012, 05:49 AM
OK, so indeed - all 3 are interesting lenses; pity the one that I need most (10-18mm) isn't cheap :) Let's see whether its IQ is going to worth $850...
09-15-2012, 05:36 AM
Thanks Derran for the heads-up - no, never heard of it, but it definitely would be a good alternative. Your link doesn't seem to work for me; could you post details you know?
Never mind, found it...
09-15-2012, 04:56 AM
As can be read in my signature, I use vintage FD glass on both the FS100 and Letus adapter with EX1 when I need that shallow DOF look in my 2-camera shots. The widest Canon prime I have is currently...
Yeah - naming clips and PPs is simply primitive on the FS100; still hoping it will be improved with a firmware upgrade.
