Finally after waiting for my lecia summilux to get fixed for 5 months by leica! It’s here and I am currently getting good results from this combination. I will begin shooting with this setup with Lin’s Docu and my future projects.
Tried my best to have the CG of the camera and lens resting on my shoulders.
GH2 + Zacuto EVF with iscorama focus regreased + lecia 50mm 1.4 asph, I must say the Zacuto EVF has really made me a fan of their products which I had previously though of as overpriced. It’s a dream for anamorphic shooters. However it would be nice to have the pixel 1:1 area ‘navigable’ .
TRUSMT follow focus
Recently I have been a little obsessed and bugged with focusing pulls in films as a movement to reveal and guide the eye of the audience. In anamorphics since the DOF is so super shallow and has all sorts of exotic qualities to it which we can debate all day. The movement of focus has to be smooth draggy but so much that it causes stress on the camera and lens unit, which I have been encountering .
I have sent my 2 iscoramas focusing to be reoiled, and made smoother (less drag). Kind of excited to test the results when I pick them up today
Just got it in Singapore, I must say this EVF is a dream for anamorphic DSLR shooters. It checks almost every single wish box.
One big surprise, is during pixel 1:1, the EVF pushes out HDMI ‘to the 2nd monitor in full frame. This could potentially allow 1st cam assit to pull focus on the fly, without marks, while the operator/DP frames the shot.
DSLRs and the sea. Not a good mix, but what the heck , add anamorphic on top of that.
This is a trailer for my video installation which was funded and exhibited at Singapore Biennale 2011 ‘Old Kallang Airport’
Listed top 10 works to see in the biennale by 3 a different publications and news.
Currently I am in production as an invited artist for the Singapore Biennale 2011. It will be a series of videos of the ‘longkangs’ within Singapore, exploring it’s flow and control, and hidden places.
