Super Cool Video About Stanley Kubrick's Camera and NASA Lens


This video is a great watch. Especially if you're a fan of the critically acclaimed "genius" filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. Adam Savage of MythBusters fame gives us a lesson on Mr. Kubrick's crazy lens and the 'FrankenCamera' that had to be built to match it.

Adam was visiting the Stanley Kubrick museum in San Francisco, going over various pieces on display, and delves into a discussion on this lens and camera. As he explains; Stanley Kubrick wanted to shoot Barry Lyndon by natural light only. This would require a very fast lens. Lenses that matched this level of criteria were only made by NASA at the time. Then of course he would need a camera that fit this lens.

Adam goes on to discuss various interesting facts and tidbits about Stanley's iconic style. I really think you'll like it so check it out below.
