Our next project presented a different theme but was equally effective in showcasing the capabilities of our setup
We configured the camera for traditional documentary work for this more intimate, culinary-themed film shot in Denmark. Given Copenhagen's natural beauty, we aimed to capture expansive, scenic shots. Initially, I anticipated that the intense midday sun might hinder our monitoring capabilities, prompting me to connect the EVF to the LCD — but we did not need it at all.
By this point, Oli, our Director of Photography, had grown more comfortable pulling focus manually instead of using a wireless system. During this third project, I felt we truly began to harness the full potential of the Moment adapter.
The Moment Adatper completely defines each of these films’ looks. Having previously shot extensively with only the Zeiss lenses, introducing the adapter added a new dimension to our visuals. For me, it introduces the ideal level of distortion and flare, enhancing the images without being excessive, making it perfect for these dynamic, on-the-go films that demand a unique aesthetic.
In an ideal world with unlimited funds, our first choice would be an Alexa Mini with a Kowa EVO 2x setup. However, operating on a much smaller budget, the combination of the FX3 and Moment yields an image quality so high that I believe 95% of viewers would struggle to notice a significant difference.
The Adapter has become an essential piece of kit for me, and I’m thrilled to let it continue to define the look of my films.
