first_imgMake a custom cine lens for less than $150 using the technique in this video tutorial by Caleb Pike.If you’re used to shooting on a DSLR, odds are you probably own a few lenses that were created specifically for shooting pictures and not video. These lenses usually have apertures that click and no grooves for mounting a follow focus. While normally we would have shied away from lenses like this, we recently came across an awesome video tutorial by Caleb Pike of DSLR Video Shooter that shows us how to take cheap/old photography lenses and convert them into high-end cine lenses.The process doesn’t take much time at all, and it’s a lot cheaper than going out and buying a normal cine lens. On DSLR Video Shooter he explained how he purchased and converted 3 Olympus OM lenses to Canon Cine Lenses for only $431. Compare that to the Rokinon 35mm Cine lens which goes for $549 on B&H and you can see that this could really help you save a lot of money in the long run.The tutorial is a little long but well worth a watch for anyone interested in DSLR cinematography. Caleb covers a lot of really interesting topics such as:Converting the Lens MountDe-clicking the Aperture RingAdding the Lens GearsUsing 80MM Cine RingsMatt Box CompatibilityAdding Push On CapsBest viewed full screen:If you are fearful of declicking your lens yourself you can send it to Duclos and they will declick your lens for $60.

Gabigol retains World Cup dream

first_imgBrazil Inter flop Gabigol retains World Cup dream Jamie Smith Last updated 2 years ago 01:00 10/8/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Gabriel Barbosa Getty Images Brazil Benfica Internazionale WC Qualification South America Serie A Primeira Liga Although he has only scored one goal in 2017, the 21-year-old striker insists he can go to the 2018 World Cup with his national team Gabriel Barbosa believes he can still earn a place in Brazil’s World Cup squad despite struggling for form since leaving his homeland for Europe.Gabigol was considered one of Brazil’s hottest young talents when he broke through at Santos and, after featuring at the Copa America Centenario, helped his country win the gold medal at their home Olympics last year.Brazil 7/1 to beat Chile 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. But after moving to Inter for a reported €25million in August 2016, the striker struggled for game-time and did not start a single Serie A match last season, scoring only once in the league.Gabigol has subsequently been sent out on loan to Benfica but he is yet to get off the mark for the Portuguese giants, while namesake Gabriel Jesus has taken over as Brazil’s greatest prospect.Despite a forgetful 2017, the 21-year-old thinks he can force his way into Tite’s plans for the World Cup in Russia next year.”A player who has no ambition to go to a World Cup is a player who is not right,” Gabigol told A Bola.”First, I want to help Benfica, to help my team-mates, to be Portuguese champions and, who knows, to go to the World Cup.” A post shared by Gabriel Barbosa (@gabigol) on Sep 13, 2017 at 5:30am PDTGabigol rejected suggestions he has been a flop in Europe, highlighting the period of adjustment needed to get used to on-pitch differences from Brazil.”I don’t think I failed at Inter,” he said. “It’s very difficult for a Brazilian player who comes to Europe to score 20 or 30 goals in his first year.”European football is very different and it varies from country to country. Italy is very different to Brazil and to Portugal. I need to get used to it.”I’m now in Portugal, where the football is quicker and more dynamic. I have to be patient and wait for my chance. I give everything for my team and the important thing is that the team wins, not for me to score.”The goal will arrive naturally, I do not seek it out obsessively.”Reports have suggested the Brazilian’s lack of impact at Benfica could lead to his season-long loan being terminated prematurely, but he intends to stay until the end of the campaign.”I am happy here at Benfica,” Gabigol said. “I hope to remain the whole season and it’s not true that I want to leave.”Of course, at the end of the season I’d like to speak to Inter so I can decide on my future, but it doesn’t only depend on me.”last_img read more
