Rainbow vignette looks like the 7Artisans 4mm I recently got, available for MFT and various APS-C mounts. My bet is on GH4 plus that fisheye, though it doesn't look quite as bubbly so I am not sure.

Pro tip about about telling apart fisheye add-on lenses (fisheyes that you put in front of your camcorder lens ie mk1, mk2, xtreme,Ö) and fisheyes for dslr or mirrorless cameras. The latter produce a much sharper, clearer image, particularly on the corners.

That makes a lot of sense, though with circular fisheyes like the 7Artisans 4mm youíll have to crop in a lot and things wonít look as sharp especially when filming at 1080p.

Thatís actually a very good point and what I feel is the main drawback of the 7artisans 4mm, the meike 3.5mm and the laowa 4mm. The image circle is so small that one has to crop a lot of the footage to get a reasonable image. On one side you end up losing a lot of the quality (especially at 1080p) and on the other side it is difficult to know on camera how will the footage look once cropped.

It will be great if they released a similar lens but with a bigger image circle, more suitable for aps-c and full frame sensors.

I am using the bad weather here in Berlin right now to tinker with a weird-ass setup that I am curious about, the original Canon EOS M with Magic Lantern firmware hack (Crop Mood branch). It taps into the sensor data and records RAW video with different presets and settings. The 1x3 anamorphic mode at 2160x1280 crops in nicely with this lens. Only 25p but from what I can tell the image looks pretty sick. Hopefully I'll be able to test it properly soon, we've been dealing with snow and shit.

Been tooling around with an abandoned Canon XF105 from my work & realized I can do @ bataaard's MK1 Bayo mod so I can go between my VX1MK1 & Canon HD setup.

Just waiting on my step down ring, and a lesser extent, the Wooden Camera VX mic. Excited to try this out & I'll post some test footy here!

Been enjoying using the ax700/MK1 setup recently - I have just a make shift handle with no mounts for mic and light, I can fit one or the other on the camera. Has anyone got any specific handle recommendations for me at all? Thanks.

i tried a hot shoe handle on the ax700 + mk1, it's too shaky and I don't trust it to hold an expensive camera.
i ended up doing my own handle with 2 metal L brackets screwed together.
I put a cold shoe at the end of the handle for the light. you can buy those for cheap.
the mic is on the hotshoe of the camera.

Put this video out in October. Filmed mostly in Bloomington, IN. Fisheye clips were filmed with a GH4 and Meike 3.5. Long lens with a VX.

Has anyone had a go using a HVX/MK1 setup?? Iíve only really seen the Mk1 used with the HPX or HMC. Iím running a hvx200/Xtreme, and am leaning towards copping a mk1 and adaptor to try film some 4:3 bits. Anyone with any experience of the setup lmk!

I think a Meike 3.5mm or 7artisans 4mm are good cheap ones. Lots of examples here in the thread.
Anyone here tried the gx80 mic jack mod themselves?
