    Wow that was a great one. finally We can have an adaptor that can change character. I wish Hian offer this option for letus extreme.

    thanks, he would need to design a whole new adaptor to do that!

    PHIL, THEARE IS CA AND OVEREXPOSURE IN THE CENTER OF THE PICTURE. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

  5. admin says:

    Hi Saba, is your caps button stuck? If you read the blog I talk about the CA. With regards to overexposure, the only overexposure is on the sea and that was deliberate, it looks like it’s brighter in centre due to post vignetting, also explained in the blog.

    Thanks! P

    Love the MB look suite and vignette – I’m a big fan of those. Thinking of getting an SGBlade with my XHA1 setup – so this is all useful. I like the way you are very honest about the issues you encounter. That’s especially useful when you’re like me and want the best results for the least money (I’m cheap but demanding!).

    I love the shots, and also you’ve dispelled a myth I’ve encountered, that these adaptors only work well with prime lenses – I see you’ve used two zooms here.

    People have talked about the CA – I wonder if this would be an issue with the XHA1 but I guess I’ll only know when I get the adaptor.

    Thanks for the useful tests and great films – I loved your “magic bus stop” one too.

    Hi Phil,

    What zoom lenses are you using?

    Many thanks,
    Matt.

  9. Very nice looking footage. That will be a beautiful beach in about 2 million years.

    Kalani-

  10. i really like the color grading, which kind of settings and software did you use for color correction ?

    Thanks.
