Hey!

Here are some grabs from our last production "Everything is poetry baby"

It's a swedish shortfilm shot with a Sony EX1. It's the first time I have ever used the camera.

The only way I could tell was the green in the hair of the subject. Lighting on your subject looks like a good match for the chroma key background though.

Yes it's a bit soft. We had some problems making it super-sharp with the EX1. maybe some of you can wright some tips I can think about next time? How do I make it as sharp as possible?

What lenses where you using? I think that I've read where a typical lens gives its sharpest image by closing the aperture a couple stops from wide open. Shooting with a wide open aperture gives a nice shallow depth of field, but sometimes softens the image too much.

I made a 50/60cm color print (from an 80ASA 35mm film) some 24(?) years ago out of curiosity of what the "grain" would look like at that print size. I saw it, the print was nice but from about 2m away, I couldn't see the grain anymore (consider the size of the print). Camera used: Canon A1, lens 1.4/50 (don't recall settings, but, by the looks of it and my taste could have been 1.4 and 1/500?). The enlarger had a "no name" lens. Good enough to show all the details (hair) and the film's "grain". The point being: a lens should be good enough resolution wise even for that size (static). Most SLR lenses were converted/ rehoused to be used on motion picture cameras so their optics are fine.HVX and other HD cameras may not have enough resolution compared to what an SLR lens can deliver.
