Jonathan: “Sony was kind enough to lend me their new 85mm f/1.4 GM lens, which I compared to the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 that I already own. Both are outstanding, but the Sony just took it to another level. So now I’m switching (an expensive proposition, but worth it). Please check out the pictures. Ethiopia is beautiful!

New A6300 primers and film stock emulation support


Programmer Hrvoje created the A6300 primers to enhance the video performance (Download: He sent me that message:

I’ve done a much more deeper analysis to see how to further reduce banding and now with this camera a new approach has been implemented with very good results. S-Log3 was found too problematic even with new approach due to very compressed DR within 8 bits, so S-Log2 was chosen as a better option. Primers package now comes for S-Log2 gamma and modified Cine4 gamma. Detailed tests were done to find the optimal base for the best effect of Primers and suggested camera setup is on the Primers page.
S-Log2 now has significantly reduced banding and modded Cine4 has no problems with banding. S-Log2 will give about a stop or so more DR in case you need it, such as bright windows shot from interior but Cine4 modified with Primers should work very well in exteriors. Prores is preferred for recording but Primers also work with XAVC-S as well.
For the Primers to properly improve the color response, A6300 should be setup exactly as suggested on the Primers web page. Two picture profiles, one for Cine4 gamma, other for S-log2. It takes 30 seconds to do it and off you go and add Primers later to do their thing.
Kind regards,

And FilmConvert released the Sony a6300 camera profiles to get film stock emulation look (Download: Here is the test footage via Cinema5D:

With the Momo 28mm E-mount lens you get the 100 year old Vest Pocket Kodak “look”

The Japanese company Yasuhara is known for their two E-mount lenses, the Nanoha 5:1 macro (Click here) and the Madoka 180 fisheye (Click here). And they are now launching their third E-mount lens project on Kickstarter. Their new MoMo Soft Focus Pancake Lens is based on the 100 year old Vest Pocket Kodak lens design (here on eBay).

This is their project description:

Yasuhara a Japanese lens maker, just launched their MoMo Soft Focus Pancake Lens for digital cameras on Kickstarter. The MoMo Lens is based on the single meniscus lens used in the Vest Pocket Kodak (VPK) camera from 100 years ago. It is designed to achieve the same dreamy, soft focus pictures with the convenience of today’s digital cameras.
The soft focus on the MoMo Lens is set at F6.4, but users can adjust the aperture through F22 to control the power of its effect. MoMo Lenses will work with mirrorless and DSLR cameras. It will be available with mounts for Micro Four Thirds, Sony NEX, Canon-EF or Nikon F-Series, and eventually Canon EOS-M as well as Fuji X cameras. Further specifications provided below:
