New Noktor video. Noktor f/0.95 lens shipping.


Large format photography from 43rumors on Vimeo.

The cool thing about the Noktor is that f/0.95 aperture. So why not test the lens inside the darkroom? With no other lens I would be able to shoot in such a place. Take a look on the video to see the results. And keep in mind there was almost no light in the darkroom!
I found the f/0.95 aperture good enough for video shooting. Almost every part of the video has been taken at that aperture. Shooting handheld with a 100mm (50mm x2) lens is not easy. In fact you really need a tripod to take some “calm” pictures. But I didn’t have anyone with me on that day.

You asked me to post RAW images and original videos. Right now I am putting all the images together and I will upload them soon (it will take few hours).

By the way, the lens is in Stock now:

    This lens looks a lot better for filming compared to the sample pictures.

    Maybe you could try to get one of those hand grips for your camera. the one you posted a couple of days ago.. would be interesting how much the footage improves.
    or go one step further and try this .. the hague mini cam stabilizer is pretty cheap too.

    Wow, almost completely unwatchable due to camera shake… :(

    I really like the look from this lens when shooting video. If you change the colours to be washed out or B&W it has a great dreamy feel. I like it. (Maybe use imovie to short out the shake though!) :)
