        My entry for this months FStopAcademy.com Inner Circle Film Challenge. This months challenge was to edit provided B-Roll video clips to music. All video was filmed by Den Lennie in FEZ, Moracco using a Sony NEZ 5N camera. Den graciously provided these beautiful B-Roll clips to his "Inner Circle Film" students for use in this challenge. My video montage was edited to the music "Journey of Santoor" which I licensed for use through CSS Music.com. All editing was done using Sony Vegas Pro 11 along with effects or titles via Boris Fx BCC 8, Boris Red and NewBlue Fx. Den, thanks for providing use of these beautiful clips for the challenge...really unique desitination...it was almost like being there!

        • Finchingfield - Shot on Carl Zeis CP.2 15mm T2.9 and Sony NEX FS100


          from HANGMAN | F-STOP / Added

          I shot this in a small village near where I live on a Carl Zeiss CP.2 15mm T2.9. The NEX FS100 has a Super 23mm sensor and so the crop factor on this lens is 1.5 so the images you are watching have an equivalent Field of view to a 22.5mm focal length. I am an Ambassador for Carl Zeiss and I was loaned this lens before NAB to test and evaluate- I shot this film as a test and used the 15mm exclusively in every shot. The images have been corrected for luminance only everything else is as shot.

                    Just a short comparison as we get to know these new and some not so new tools. ** This is just us messing around so please don't over analyse the results - this is just a side by side lit only with the screen of my 27" imac. Thanks to Guy Thatcher from www.hireacamera.com for bringing up the toys this weekend.

                    • Technical Farm Modifies Canon 70-200mm IS Zoom lens


                      from HANGMAN | F-STOP / Added

                      This is Technical Farm's modified Canon L Series 70-200mm lens. So what do they do? Firstly they take your existing 70-200mm lens and remove the IS module so that they can fit end stops to the lens. Then they also add a manual Iris control ring. In additional they then add 0.8 pitch gears to the iris, zoom and focus to give a more Cine feel. Certainly in principle this seems to make sense but in reality I'm not as convinced. Pro's Certaily having a manual iris is a big plus as that's how I'm used to exposing with traditional Cine Zooms and Broadcast TV lenses. The action is smooth and the pitch gears help also when operating. Con's The end stops are not a deal breaker for me. I'd rather keep image stabalization for those times when you grab the camera and go hand held. And when I spoke to Octica in the UK who lent me the lens they indicated that it might be possible to leave IS in and lose the end stops so it certainly seems to be an option. The other main concern is that when focussing at the long end of the focal length ther's still not enough real estate to pull focus effectively. So while the physical mod helps it still only partly solved the issue. Cost of Mod is £2495 +VAT (approx $4k) which is a bit of a gulp if you're moving up from DLSR but less of a gulp if you're moving dwon from Cine lenses. But this is not a cine lens so I question if it is a valuable modifictation. Conclusions For me I'd rather buy a dedicated zoom. However options are non existent currently. But with NAB just around the corner I'd be hoping that lens manufacturers are recognising the need for affordable cine style zooms and maybe well see some options in April.
