Bought last year on BH new, its the OVS-FE3X-DVX Century Optics .3x ultra fisheye lens for DVX bayo mount cameras. The glass is FLAWLESS! pictures will be send to serious buyers. like i said, glass is flawless and pictures really dont do justice but will provide with photo and legitimacy contact information within the photo. Im looking to get around $500 for it... its worth much more as we all know but figured at such a good price i could sell it quick
Oh, how times have changed. Just two short years ago, I was shooting on a Panasonic HVX200, previewing my footage on a Marshall monitor, and using a G35 lens adapter in order to achieve depth of field. These were wretched times in which one was forced to make a choice between quality and speed. On one hand, if I was trying to capture beautifully focused footage with a shallow depth of field, I would inevitably be running around like a chicken with his head cut off just trying to get my shots in the limited time my clients gave me.
I ran across this video from the team at Zacuto as they had some filmschool students put together an experimental rig using the Canon 7D with a Panavision Prime lens. This is definitely more for the Advanced Pro's, but I think any true 'Gear Geek' could spare a few centiliters of drool over the potential of this setup. It'll be nice to see what they shot with this rig!
Hey, I own a Panasonic AG-HVX200. Somebody asked me this today, and made me curious...
With this camera, of course there is a manual zoom mode, which allows free movement of the zoom ring for quick snap-zooms. But also, when you set it to Servo, you are still able to manually zoom with the ring, it's just a little stiffer. The question is, does it harm the mechanics of the zoom lens to operate it by the ring when its set to Servo Zoom mode?
Can someone help me answer a question? I own the Sony FX7; and the instruction manual says that the camera should not be pointed directly at the sun, and that doing so can result in damage to the unit. But lots of videos have shots of the sun in them. In fact, videomaker's Tips and Tricks has an instructional video on shooting the sun. Is there really a risk of damaging my camera? If so, what needs to be done to prevent the damage? Thanks!
Does every wide qangle make like a circular border aound every camcorder...I know with the wide angle lens you get more view, but I feel im actually losing some parts of scenes because I can see the circular border that my wide angle lens makes...I have a 0.45x wide angle lens..
