I’m setting up a new blog on CML that will feature news about camera and lens tests and will be home to my rants about things in cinematography that really wind me up!
Another movie with Dominic Brunt and he agreed to me using the Canon C300-2 with stills lenses for the entire film.
Although I had an AC he spent a lot of his time watching me try to focus pull using a Samsung Tablet!
I wanted to do it myself just to see how difficult it was and what the major pitfalls were.
It was a hell of a learning experience but I’d do it again, maybe with a few small changes like taking my own router just for the camera WiFi, using frequency scanners more often and killing anyone who decided to use any form of wireless transmission without clearing it with the camera crew first!
The main lesson is that the newer a lens is the better it copes, well that’s a shock!
Seriously, in a lot of situations the lens just couldn’t focus fast enough, actors running at camera in very low light was a serious issue.
Anyway, lots more here…Digitally Assisted Focus on a Movie
I’ve finally got around to finishing all the lens tests, I was kinda delayed by events last year! So here they all are…
If you want them all on the same page the go here…
Lots of new camera tests in a month or so.
Welcome to the new CineRant site, it’s a place for me to vent about cinematography issues that annoy me.
I’ll be starting off by re-posting some of my personal blog messages from the recent past.
