    Short film I shot last summer usin Canon XL2 and the mini35 adapter INFO! I was impressed by the result images it produced. It is the only way to go if doing low budget film making. I provided the links to the movie below. I look forward to any feedback or questions anyone has.

    Little grey, chilly island.
    I really loved it!

    The most important thing; it had me hooked - right from the first few seconds. The only thing is that (being dumb as I am!) I wanted some kind of closure on the story but it didn't happen for me. But this is artistic.

    By the way - the music - you used a composer I presume?

    Fabulous!! :)

    How much did it cost you to rent that lens out? It costs like $7,500 ridiculous man.

    The crappy Google/youtube quality makes it hard to appreciate the visual quality, but I could tell you had a good DP. Always need someone good when it comes to DV; especially if you want to make it look like film.

    I made a similar film a couple years ago. ( I don't want to steal your thunder or anything, but maybe you'd find it interesting.

    Yeah the whole unit is a ridiculous price and has to be rented. There is a cheaper solution coming out called the guerilla 35 set to be priced at around $1500 for the whole adapter.

    Looks good! It's hard to really see the quality of the Super35 on the internet, what with all the pixelization. Colors looked great though!
