Video is shot on a hacked GH2, Flowmotion 2.02
24Fps Cinema mode, (almost) no color grading.
Lens is a original Iscorama Anamorphic adaptor, Pentax mount.
This was actually our first try-out with the lens, never used it before this shoot.
We used the original 50mm, f2.8 taking lens for all shots. Some shots are sharp, other not that sharp but keep in mind....this is a vintage 1968 lens! Also the fact of having the 50mm only at f2.8 (and higher) was a hassle.
Used diopters for close-up shots
Tokina diopter +0.4 in combination with cheapo +1, +2, +4 diopters.
Tripod and mini slider
Love the anamorphic lenses but the workflow is a pain in the ..... but more to follow :-)
