I’ve played with vintage lessons a few times over the years. While it is interesting and often a fun technical exercise, I just can’t get jazzed enough about the final image to want to build a work flow around it.
This footage is beautiful and I loved the slowmo low light stuff. But wouldn’t that be easier to shoot with a more modern lens? I think you would get more sharpness and better contrast that you could push/pull in post, if you wanted something softer.
What, specifically, did this 140 year old lens bring to the final product? Or is the test run for a vintage lens that has a really unique image?
