    Very cinematic images, bravo!
    In particular, I was impressed by the wide shots where you used a vintage nikon 28 2.8 nd a chep reducer...they're absolutely fantastic!
    how did you stabilize the camera?

    Beautifully done! I uesd to have a speedbooster/bmpcc combo with nikon vintage lenses but I was having HUGE issues getting edge to edge sharpness. Not so much that the sides were soft, but that the focus plane, on certain lenses, made me choose to either have my center image in focus or my edges.

    How do you find the edge to edge sharpness on your wider lenses? And do you have a link to the adapter you used?

    Cheers!

    He Pa,
    Thanks for the comment, I do sometimes find it pretty soft when used under 4.0 so i normally shoot with it open at 5.6 or higher. I ordered this focal reducer off Amazon . here's the link
