Here is a frame grab from our latest shoot for the trailer of the feature film, “Piracy,” which is my current DP project. The difference between my Zeiss glass and all my other lenses is night and day. I never thought I would thumb my nose at Canon L glass until I got my Zeiss lenses. Just amazing. I can’t wait until I can afford a proper set of cine lenses. Although, the new Schneider Cine-Xenar primes may be the way I will go. Anything that is purported to exhibit “Leica-like” image characteristics is worth a look. An 18-blade aperture??? Yes, please. I’ll have some of that.
I’m noticing that the AF100 is giving me more noise in shadow detail than I would like, but I’m going to attribute that to the fact that I haven’t gotten my AJA Ki Pro Mini yet, and I’m having to shoot to the SD card in 4:2:0. Can’t wait to see how much better the picture looks recorded to the AJA box.
