You know this doesn't work for video, right? So this is a pretty useless post for a filmmaking web site. Maybe if you had bothered to hands-on review the adapter rather than cut and paste a press release...
Since when does full frame plus a little extra qualify as "large format"? This doesnt even measure up to what's currently called medium format, which in turn is scaled down radically from traditional medium format.
Most people who need a (relatively) compact, one-man-band capable video camera (complete with flip out screen) are often going to be in situation where they can't bring along a lighting crew plus lighting gear, which means they need to rely on available light even more--so why make it a Super 35 when a full frame would take in so much more light?
Finally! A way to make 8k blurry and unwatchable by stretching it way beyond its intended limits. Great job, infomercial!
I'm excited for all these new f1.2, T1, f.9, and under lenses but movie "pros" need to get over their prejudice against AF and start demanding it on these low light lenses because even the best focus pullers in the world aren't going to be able to keep tack sharp focus on their subjects in all but the least demanding camera moves.
What is this Imax of which you speak? Imax died 14 years ago. Are you talking about that 2 1/2K LieMax that has overcharged customers for over a decade and turned off two generations of movie goers from spending extra on a true large format experience?
