We finally have a way to shoot some s16mm! Can't wait to shoot a test roll! We'll be using my Lomo 2x anamorphic lens kit and I'm going to work with Frame Discreet on the HD scans.
So excited to shoot some film again!

Duff Smith - 'you ain't goin' nowhere.' - AF100 + Lomo Anamorphic + SmallHD DP6

First controlled test of the Panasonic AF100 and my Lomo anamorphics;

I really like the look of this combo. Very similar to what I'm used to with the GH13, but much more enjoyable to use. As always, I used my trusty Hot Rod PL mount adapter and I had the same Scene File settings as my previous test. But this time, I used the SmallHD DP6 monitor to squeeze down the image live, while I was shooting. This is way more enjoyable than watching the distorted image on the onboard LCD on the GH13 or AF100. Currently, the DP6's software only supports an image of about 3:1, about 80% of what is needed to see the entire 2x image properly. They are working to address this in a firmware update. Which is awesome. They have great customer service over at SmallHD for sure.

Here are some BTS pictures;

Thanks for looking!

Panasonic AF100

Got a chance to play with the new AF100 from Panasonic. I mounted my Lomo 35mm 2x anamorphic lens with my Hot Rod PL adapter. This is a sweet little camera. It was VERY dark and VERY cold, so this is not a particularly interesting video. But i'm going to try to shoot something more awesome with the camera and my Lomo kit soon!
