LAST UPDATE: August 6th2015 - For all most recent prices, I'd like to refer you to my newest addition to my domain: the MediaMonitor. It keeps track of prices for and compatibility with all recording media suitable for use with (amongst others) the Blackmagic Design URSA camera's. I will no longer be updating the prices on this page, bookmark the MediaMonitor for further updates.

Let's finish this, I've had a concept of this post stored in my websites for over a year now - never posted it for no particular reason. So I should call this a Golden Oldie by now. This post isn't directly about cinematography, cameras or gear. But I thought it was worth sharing nontheless! For years I've collaberated on a project called InDeKringloop, which can roughly be translated as AtTheThriftStore. The idea is as follows: a musician plays a (mostly) acoustic session in a thrift store (second hand store).

Recently I took a gamble and bought a 0.72x focal reducer from an eBay store called Roxsen. It's similar to the RJ Focal Reducer. Unlike the Mitakon Lens Turbo, this one fits without any trouble at all. Last weekend I got around to giving it a field-test whilst shooting a video for a client - an exclusive car rental agency here in the Netherlands.

There's an aspect of post production which I've put off for a long time: backups and archiving projects. Mostly because every method out there came out to be a pretty expensive, or at least - more expensive then I'd like. External RAID arrays, NAS boxes, 19" rack-servers - I've been through them all, on paper at least. But I ended up with a slightly simpler solution which works great for me, and is very manageable.

[updated] A while back there was a buzz about this new optical adapter from Metabones: the Speedbooster. This small and magical thing would increase the Field of View (FoV) (and thus decrease the effective crop factor) and sharpness of your lenses, as well as give you an extra F-stop of light. Recently I've seen a misuse of the brandname Speedbooster as a denomer to describe all of these optical adapters. Let's get this straight: these are called Focal Reducers.
