    Posting this for informational purposes. Not particularly proud of this, but those thinking of getting an inexpensive variable density ND filter might find this interesting. It was the first sunny day since receiving the filter so I went out in the backyard and grabbed a little footage in the bright morning sun. All shots were shakily handheld with the Lumix G6 at f/1.4 with a Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 and the Neewer 52mm Variable ND filter purchased for $12.95 USD.

        This video is all shoot on one lens, and that is SLR Magic Hyper Prime Cine 10mm T2.1 (f1.8) with SLR Magic Variable ND Filter. I used the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera in ProRes 422 HQ. (Handheld and Slider) Graded with Film Convert and edited in FCPX Mostly shoot wide open and ISO 800. Day Exteriors are with Variable ND and stopped down around 5.6. Variable 77mm ND filter from SLR Magic does his job excellent, No Vignette, No X pattern. Has also Hard Stops, I like it better than my Tiffen Nd filter :) It is Must with this Glass. Lens has great flares If You want them, if not, you can stop down and eliminate them. Lovely Bokeh and small focusing distance, outstanding. BEST WIDE LENS YOU CAN GET ON BMPCC. :)

        • Palos Verdes Beach and The Getty Center - SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 w/var ND Test

          I have been shooting with the new SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 MFT lens and their matching 77mm variable ND filter for the last few weeks. I have found it to be a great addition to the Panasonic GH4. I have always loved landscape photography done with large format cameras and have found this lens to allow me to shoot wide perspectives without the distortion of a fish eye lens. With the MFT crop, this is difficult to achieve on the GH4. With the SLR magic 10mm I can set the camera low, focus to near infinity at F5.6 and get a dramatic foreground in focus with the background. At T2.1 the lens can also shot closeups with a narrow depth of field and a beautiful bokeh. A variable ND filter allows you adjust your exposure while keeping your shutter angle and iris constant. The SLR Magic 77mm ND is very clean and did not flatten contrast or desaturate the image like an inexpensive ND would. It has a lever on the side with travels about 90 degrees and is very smooth. Some variable NDs are very stiff but this one is easy to adjust however not so loose that it would move accidentally.

            Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera with New SLR Magic 10mm Cine Prime and New Variable ND FIlter NYC Music By Flower Dove Thanks to Elli's Barbershop The 10mm cine prime and variable ND filter are by far the most fun I have had shooting with the Blackmagic Pocket Camera. The lens is rectilinear and sharp with beautiful colors and provides a very cinematic look even with the pocket's native 2.88x crop factor. Composing the shots with both aperture and ND filter control dramatically expands one's ability to play with light, color, and depth of field. I currently have two BMPCC cameras, both now sporting SLR Magic Primes (25mm+1.33 anamorphic adapter and the 10mm). The combination is magical.

              • Cheap Glass | $50.00 Fader and Blackmagic 4K


                from Camp Comet / Added

                I found this fader under my car seat, it's been there for at least five months and I've never taken it out of the case. It came with a lens that I bought from a forum member. Decided to try it out with a new old set of lenses. Every shot outside of the very last two shots are with the Fader + IR Cut in front of a lens. 4K RAW and ProRes 50, 85, 135 Color in Resolve 50.00 FaderND + Hoya IR Cut The neutral shot of the girl leaning against the guy is almost right out of camera with a bit of balancing. 1.3GB 1080ProResLT File downloadable I have an opinion on this.

Not the newest thing now, it's still the only option for capturing 10-bit 4:2:2 log video without a big rig, and costing under a grand. But it's always needed a bit of rigging, and while filmmakers keep using it to make amazing films - examples at vimeo.com/groups/blackmagic - there's still a lot to talk about, in terms of rigging it right. Following up the commentary I made last year that went sort of viral, here's a similar chat: because sometimes showing stuff, and talking over it, works better than writing an article. For a streaming clip, it does run long, but it covers lots of ground - and I'm looking forward to your comments below. The first and main theme is that it's wise to choose Canon EF-mount manual cine lenses, so that you can adapt them to the Micro-4/3 mount on the BMPC (and E-mount on Sony cams) with gadgets that take advantage of the conversion, enabling behind-the-lens ND filters and focal reducers. But it's also true that typical Canon EF-mount lenses that aren't fully manual will lack aperture control this way. Important to clarify!
