1. When in Vietnam...

    Set off on a 1650Km north to south journey: capturing the best wonders of Vietnam: Hanoi ancient quarter, the breathtaking Halong Bay, the claustrophobic caves in Trang An, the glamorous fabric merchants in Hoi An, the secret temples inside the marble mountain in Da Nang, the historical old capital Hue, the wet and tropical mekong delta and the white sandy beaches at Phu Quoc.

  3. Some random shots:

    The first four shots are from a short film I'm currently in process of shooting/directing, starring David Asavanond.
    imdb.com/name/nm1957822/
    More on this later! :)

    Other shots of Bangkok, to show low light and examples of oval bokeh (all night shots were shot RAW).

    Juxtaposed with some scenery footage I shot while working on production in Krabi, Thailand (ProRes).

    For the short film shots, I used a voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 and Sigma 19-35 f1.8 with and without pocket speedbooster on a bmpcc. To best utilize Optical Flow in Davinci Resolve, I decided to shoot 30fps at 108 degree shutter angle. I wanted to go even skinnier but this was the best compromise to sync with available street lights. Even then, I still got flicker under the traffic light. However, you see that most slow motion looks smooth. The monkey was shot in 25fps@180 degrees, and I got a lot more motion artifacts in comparison (hence all the cuts- the monkey moved more than that he sat still! :)

    Grades were done with a combo of Captain Hook, BMCC and Alexa LUTs. All LUTS have purposes for different situations. The Alexa LUT made low light grading easier than with the other two, in my experience.

    Overall my experience with this lens is very positive. It is the "correct" conversion to 2.37 aspect ratio, or 2.36 if you output to 2554 x1080 like I did here. In comparison to other anamorphic lenses, you get very good quality in a much more user friendly package than any of the 'vintage' lenses out there. I have used a Kowa 16-H 2x Anamorphic before on a BMCC at 2.5K. Very sharp, but big, heavy, and cumbersome in comparison to this SLR Magic. With the Kowa, you can rack focus a little but not as far a distance as with the SLR Magic. Also, even with diopters, close focus is very very dificult to achieve. With the SLR Magic, it gave stunning results overall, and the diopters they supply are better than any diopter I had before (including one Voigtlander +0.5 for my iscomorphot-1.5x).

    The other lenses I have tried are a Century 1.33x and the aforementioned Iscomorphot. I will try to do a shootout between all lenses I can find soon. Since I got this lens while I was on a 2-month long film production, I could only shoot and edit everything you see here on my days off and after wrap time :) When I'm done, I should have some more time to do a proper side by side comparison.

    MUSIC:
    Both these talented artist should deserve some attention, their music is really good!
    The first music track is by Neilbgr on sound cloud:
    "Rubycon (Tangerine Dream Style)"
    soundcloud.com/neilbgr/rubycon-tangerine-dream-style

    The second track by Chris Zabriskie on FMA:
    "Mario Bava Sleeps In a Little Later Than He Expected"
    freemusicarchive.org/music/Chris_Zabriskie/
    He has a lot of great tracks under creative commons suitable for soundtracks.
