  • NPP setting for shaved Samyang 8mm 2/8 on FF and 3 shots?

    Looking to use this setup for quick VFX work that doesn't need to be super clean so 3 shots. Dug up this old thread about this combo and Hugh had mentioned 22mm was a good setting for 4 shots.

    I assume it would be the similar for 3 shots? Lens is shaved and on a FF Sony. R1 7.5deg.

    The number of shots does not really make a difference, especially if the nearest point in the subject is more than say a metre or two from the camera, so 22 mm should be a good starting point.
    If you want to get really technical there is a very small change for the number of shots round as the angle for the "join" between the the images changes, but this is really insignificant.
    Note that tilting the camera has more influence if you are using an NN R1 etc.

      Thanks! Now to shave that hood off. Thinking about using a rotary table and a slot cutter on a milling machine.

        I would not recommend using any machinery!
        Have a look at

        which is how I removed my lens hood.

        Note the paper between the lens hood and the lens mechanism to stop dust from sawing getting in.

        Using a manual saw you are in control.
        You need to be gentle, saw a little bit then turn the lens and saw a little bit then turn the lens and saw a little bit and so onto until you are eventually all the way through.
