    i love all the looks that the 35mm adapters can give you, but i was wondering if these adapters are being used to shoot weddings?

    One major issue was the idea that there wouldn't be much light at a wedding. However, with say the Brevis or Letus Extreme, that could probably be an option.

    Just go naked indoors where there's no light (the dance) and adapter outside or where there's plenty of light (leaving the chapel).

    Forgot to mention that there will be a difference in the footage's look. Not just the selective focus, but it'll look different so you'd have to figure out how to match it to the naked cam.

    That's what I'm attempting to do, myself. I haven't found a solution to make the naked HVX footage match the look of the adapter footage just yet. Aram suggested a 1pixel blur, I'll have to expirement.

    1 pixel may be too much. but shoot like cinegamma D when shooting naked and Bpress when shooting adapter. that may matchthem up a bit.

    I would never change gammas like that to match the adapter to a naked camera. It's far too extreme a change in my experience. Personally I never shoot with BPress anyway. Its definately a look, and needs to be chosen carefully.

    The simplest thing to do is probably shoot with a Promist 1/4 or 1/2. That should take the edge of the normal camera footage. Before changing the gammas or other parameters, look at what your images look like.

    Different 35mm lenses may have more or less contrast. So will different adapters. The adapters will also vary in how much diffusion they add. You can compensate for that by using different detail settings.
    They will also tend to have a different color cast. My Nikons for example tend to be slightly warmer than the naked HVX.

    There is no magic bullet though you need to use your own eyes.

    nice.
    Also helps to collaborate with a really good production designer and create a visual palette, it is really difficult to "fix it in post".
    off topic: timur, when did upgrade to HVX?

    That's funny . Actually I find Magic Bullet the program to be a little helpful when matching the diffusion. I never use their presets because they are so extreme and odd looking, but you can change the white and black diffusion in there nicely. If i want to match stock lens to my Letus/Zeiss setup I can get pretty close by changing camera settings a little (primarily, lowering detail for stock) and adding some contrast, warmth, and diffusion with Magic Bullet (but avoid over doing any of these changes, its little changes to many settings that makes it work). Very good point above about different 35mm lenses effecting contrast, saturation, sharpness, etc, differently.
