    Just Google “Aputure Barndoors” they’re the ones with the (internally) black reflector dish.

    I think I remember BB&S sorting out the dimming situation, by building 16-bit (or some other really high bitdepth) precision into the dimming on their Area48 Studio models. I wonder if that solves...

    Yep, the Forza 500s. My gaffer brought a pair of Forza 300s and a pair of Forza 60Bs on a short I shot just before this feature started, and they were so versatile (and so affordable) that I picked...

    They actually do have a new remote that lets you control just about everything now - cct, dimming, hue, green/magenta

    That’s what I used to compensate for the colour shift cause by so many layers...

    Oh, I saw the Savannah At Night documentary, and it was mind-blowing. Difficult camera for conventional production though, it's set up oddly.

    Other: FX6: Absolutely bonkers high ISO performance

    I'm coming into the third week of a Bollywood feature at the moment, and we're shooting on the new Sony FX6. I had my first opportunity to use the 12,800 ISO (native) high-ISO mode last night, and...

    Yeah, they seem to have quietly disappeared a couple of years ago (a bummer, because I really want their Mitchell adapter for my slider).

    It's the Cinevate Atlas 200. A super-beefy 100mm bowl slider. Handy because you can change out the rails for different length (I carry 4' and 8' rails), and it's strong enough to support a...

    It's sadly the way of things. If the viewfinder is the only thing pushing you towards the FX9 over the FX6 though. I'd get the smaller camera, and spend the (not inconsiderable) savings on the Zacuto...

    Very much a cheap lens I'm afraid, there is no cheaper set of professional anamorphic glass that you can buy. I've been saying this for years, but people's expectations of the Atlas anamorphics...

    The FS7 (if I'm remembering right) did 12-bit linear raw (which is pretty awful, without enough bits for the toe). The FX6 outputs 16-bit linear raw (which, by comparison, has enough bit depth to be...

    The answer's still the same. A noticeable quality improvement in the 12-bit files. No risk of banding, considerably more shadow detail, and greater latitude for secondary colour correction.
