    I love the Astras and they're a big band for the buck. That said, in my experience, Astras don't do well under extreme use. Rental and daily units usually start having flickering issues after a year...

    Ha! You should copyright the name stat!

    I was actually thinking that you'd still narrow the beam to fit the sensor (like a standard speed booster) but using elements in the adaptor to compensate...

    We have a couple of decent zooms but I always end up using the primes. Even for doc work, believe it or not.

    We have the set from 16mm through 85mm (16, 24, 35, 50, 85). Close as they are, it's hard finding just the right frame. I also feel like I'm missing the characteristics of having the whole field of...

    Never mind. Just bought a Canon EF version to compare and it looks as though the flange distance goes the wrong way. Guess I'll be buying a new set of lenses.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought the optics in a speed booster would compensate for flange distance.

    FS7: Speed Booster Question

    Dumb question. Why don't they make a Speed Booster with E Mount on both sides?
  9. Has anyone ever sent their camera in for repair?

    We've got two FS100s that need some service–loose lens mounts, broken battery catch, etc–the usual FS100 stuff. We're trying to decide between sending them in for repair or just upgrading.

    Has...

    I just looked at some write ups about the Astra and I'm not impressed. Plasticy, poorly designed layout, a blow-up chimera that attaches with velcro straps and huge LEDs that leave patterns. I've...

    Ours is the bi-focus, single color. We're just measuring by projecting it onto a white board and selecting auto WB on a camera. That might be the problem. Either way, might look into the Astra.

    Good guesses! This version is before we sent the spot out for final CC, so the differences are easier to spot.

    Spot shot with FS100, Epic MX and iPhone5

    Hey guys,

    We shot this spot with a RED Epic MX (RPP glass), a Sony FS100 (stock lens) and an iPhone 5. Can you tell which is which?

    1) Black balance (or black shading) is basically a way of resetting the CMOS sensor's voltage. Sort of like a "reset" button to give you a fresh start. If you have a hot pixel, for...
