Well they didn't have to shoot digital to get the candle light shots. Kubrick shot with candle light for Barry Lyndon.
I really like the match cut and character introduction from Lawrence of Arabia. What a great film!
It would be so easy to make one. Why bother though? You could just as easily use a lighting clamp to achieve the same effect on a pipe. Or better yet....Now this is stretching it a bit, but you could also...use a tripod. One good use would be to put it on your wrist and use a DSLR like a GoPro.
All the best movies are well over 2 hours!
I like that the part of the link that is hyperlinked just so happens to be GH4 and it takes you B&H's listing of the Panasonic GH4.
This is cool to prove that you can mount and use an old lens and goes to show that you don't have to use THE most expensive lenses to produce descent/good images. I feel as though most people nowadays are obsessed with using the most expensive gear that it's refreshing to see someone appreciate older and often considered junk gear. With that said I would have preferred the test have been done with video over stills. That would have been the real test. Stills are too easy to fix in post that I would have preferred to see the actual raw photos. What's the point of using an old lens if you don't show its imperfections? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the experiment if every image looks like it's not from an old lens with character?
