GH1 hack with PL glass makes for an impressive but expensive unit
Putting PL mount cinema lenses on DSLR bodies is one way to go, and the question is always what you get for that amount of expense: A PL-mount Zeiss Ultra Prime 32 lists at AbelCine at $12,100, so it had better be good. How does it match a camera that has been criticized for its weak codec until a hack to its firmware opened up some of its capabilities?
At PrepShootPost, the experiment is underway:
First up was the Zeiss Ultra Primes, a 16mm and 32mm. Then the Optimo Zoom, and I managed to get a few shots with Sean Safreed’s Voigtlander as a comparison of what a non-PL still camera lens looks like shooting the same stuff.Below are some shots done with the 16mm/32mm and an Optimo Zoom 15-40mm and one shot with Voigtlander 35mm, can you guess which one?
