  3. Very unscientific test of the Metabones E mount to EOS Speed Booster on the Sony FS700.
    All ungraded rushes straight from the Sony FS700. Obviously these not the camera originals, compressed to H264 for vimeo.

    Footage is a mix of 100, 200, 400 & the odd 800fps shot. A couple of shots at ISO 1000, but mainly shot at 400. Lenses were Leica Summilux 50/1.4, Zeiss ZE 35 f1.4, Tokina 11-16 & Contax 135 f2. All shot wide open using the Internal ND filters only, NO Vari ND's needed.

    And yes I noticed, like, & intentionally included the sodium vapour flicker shots :-)
