Here is the Teaser of my upcoming creative long feature film documentary "WOMANHATTAN". It's made of personal archives from 1990 to nowadays, from VHS to GH2, through Super 8, Hi8, DV and HDV.
"This is the beginning of my movie: introspection into my memories and my technological obsessions. A new love story just begins and I don’t want to loose it in digital imagery. This is the climax and the issue of the movie, what does this obsession for capturing the moments does to our relationship?"
Logline : "Why did you bring all your girl friends to New York?...
Back from Archidoc's workshop in Lisbon, Portugal (set up by the famous La FEMIS french cinema school), here's a movie on this beautiful city with my friends from this workshop on writing documentary with archives. I'm preparing a creative film documentary on my personal archives... Stay tune :)

EXCLUSIVE ! NANOHA 5X ultra macro lens M43 -quick and first hands-on
I've just receveid the Nanoha Macro 5X lens, micro 4/3 mount ! It's an amazing lens that is opening to me the very macro world. It has a lighting LED unit, you can plug it with USB cable, on your computer for example. You also have a target holder to maintain the object in front of the lens to avoid motion blur. I did not use it on this movie, except on the euro bill shot and the alone hair. Not so easy to film nano objects, the...
Luckily could make some time to do a quick testshoot. My first shots with the SLR Magic Noktor 12mm. In my opinion the missing wide lens for Micro Four Thirds. Lens was fully open in most shots. No color correction, no ND used. Used a glidetrack in some shots. More info on my blog: beeldlab.nl/new-noktor-hyperprime-12mm-1-6/
I created this short vimeo.com/31256823 where I used this lens intensive for about a week. Great lens, but 3 disadvantages.
1. Lens and mount are not connected the right way. I can move it. 2. My GH2 did not always recognize the lens. 3. Yellow/green...
Some people want to have a test between the Noktor -SLR Magic- 12mm f/1.6 and the Olympus Zuiko digital ED 12mm f/2, and i have the opportunity to have a loan (from my favorite photographer local store Panajou in Bordeaux) of the Olympus. So I've done a very quick test this afternoon with those two lenses on the GH2. The Olympus seems to be sharper, but the Noktor has a more strong "cinematic"...
Day test available here : vimeo.com/30097165 MFT Wide and Fast ! Noktor / SLR Magic Hyperprime 12mm f/1.6 The NIGHT tests
I've receivedyesterday from SLR MAgic their new wide and fast angle, a 12mm f/1.6 (24mm in 24X36 eq.) in a Micro Four Third mount. This is, to my opinion, an incredible lens, fast and wide, and there is no visible distortion. The focus and aperture rings are very smooth. It is all made in metal.

Native anamorphic VGA hack GH1 with tiny super 8 cinemascope lens : quick test
I did the Anamorphic hack on my GH1, it let you having native anamorphic 1920X720 clip directly from the camera, and you can edit them without having to stretch the clip. The hack VGA mode is a 4/3 mode, that's why it is less compressed than using anamorphic on a 16/9 AVCHD mode ( vimeo.com/29881958 ), and look more like 2.66 ratio, especially with a 2X anamorphic lens.

I've found on Ebay for 41€ a Berthiot anamorphic 2X lens. I'm very happy because it is so small and so light, this is my first anamorphic experience, and it is not bulky at all !
I have attached it to a C-mount Fujian 35mm 1.7 with a ring and scotch tape. Badfully my fujian has problems with it's aperture and focus ring, but I'm going to buy another one ASAP, and will have one of the lightest and smallest anamorphic system for the GH2 ! The Berthiot anamorphic lens seems to be very rare, I did not find any...

Beeindruckende Qualität der aktuellen GH2!
Die Lichtstärke und die Zuverlässigkeit des Autofocus sind in der neuen Generation - in der GH2 - perfekt von Panasonic verbessert worden! Die Streifen (Pattern) bei dunklen Motiven gehören der Vergangenheit an.
Für Deutschland wurde bei dieser Gegenüberstellung der PAL Standard mit 50Hz gewählt. Beide Kameras hatten das Lumix 14-42mm. Aufgenommen in HD 1080.
Der 24p-Modus mit 24 Mbit/s der GH2 läge vermutlich erst recht weit über der Schärfe und Qualität der GH1! Schade, daß die GH2 nur die NTSC Länder mit besseren Parametern beglückt!
