From Newsshooter test:
"The 50-100mm while very sharp does suffer from a large amount of focus breathing for a cine lens. The technician told me that this breathing was amongst the worst that he had ever seen on a cine lens."
Not sure what lenses you guys tested :)
Agree. Straight away I was taken out of the image by that bokeh. Looks 'bitty'.
Also worth mentioning that Lee have turned the test into a great free app for Apple and Android.
Totally agree. I did a blog post to go with the test to show exactly what we did. My preferred way to use diffusion is to hang it and get it in close for maximum softness. A sheet of 216 clipped to barn doors with the light 12 feet back is going to do very little as you say!
I'm also a big book light fan, but for the purpose of the Lee Filters test, we only wanted to see results straight through the diff.
Now a fantastic free app on iTunes and Android: https://itunes.apple.com/za/app/lee-diffusion-comparator/id1050979715?mt=8 … https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.leefilters.diffusion …
Don't need a genny for an M18 even. Just bounce one of them off some 4x4. Job done :)
