    auto focus is a skill and something that requires experience and understanding of how it works. saying auto focus doesn’t work, is almost as bad as saying manual focus doesn’t work.

    Fx9 auto focus is sort of bad. at least by todays standards. it’s what i used to think video autofocus was always going to be.

    C300mk3 AF is good, and i might say surprisingly good. not perfect,...

    or the panasonic varicam 35 with the HS 2/3” head on it? edit: nevermind, seems to cost more than a varicam 35. same goes for the SonySrw9000 B4 being more expensive than the PL

    Seeing as this thread has somewhat derailed by itself, just want to interject that the Mluts on modern cameras have begun to favor highlights in a way that previous cameras never did. so, straight...

    Yes, a lot of ENG and Sports colleagues have those adapters. they are quite surprisingly good. 2stoos light loss on an f1.8 or whatever lens is still not too bad. but then you have a 22x’s super zoom...

    very cool! i should pick one of those up. sometimes it is fun to shoot 360fps on the RED’s, but few lenses are wide enough and cheap enough, or fast enough! would be kind of a cool shot to go...

    oh, yes, i see what you saw. i did not clearly specify i meant the “s16” crop. There are few FF35 servo ENG lenses, and since i was talking about the benefits of the crop for the F55, i felt that...

    don’t the converters blow up the lens to s35?

    there is also a crop on the F55 to give something like the s35 Canon 20-120 some extra reach.

    but at this point, i’m not sure who what is saying...

    and most vintage anamorphic 2xs lenses are pretty flawed wide open. So, nice these modern options are coming out, where wide open they have character, but stopped down to T4 and sharpen up...

    The crop mode is a crop mode, so no way can it be from the full sensor downsampled, otherwise it would not crop.


    The crop mode is great for news and docs type shooters getting extra reach out...

    Quite liking that look. I used to hate 1.33x anamorphic, because they seemed so middle of the road, but as vintage glass has become so expensive, I think these 1.33x stretch lenses are a great way...

    This seems like a good time to get the F55. Abundance of choice to price ratio is probable at its peak right now. Also, the Fs7 is still worth something, so it can help offset the purchase as well.

    yeah, the Red Epics are coming down in price, and Scarlets too. the Red One is down to $2K and there is a team developing new cheap media for it. could give that camera new life.
