just found this video from Ryan Walters. It's a great primer to getting to know your camera. It really gets deep into the difference between slr lens and cinema lenses and why you use a matte box. Check it out.
I've just upgraded to a Canon 600d and wondered if someone could give me a straight forward answer about which lens to choose for film, without all the indepth technical stuff. (Cheaper the better, because i'm still learning).
I'm after makes/models that will fit the Canon 600d with links if possible.
Cheers in advance
<p class="first">Hey all, I was just wanting to get some
feedback from people about my options for choice of lenses on my FS100.
Basically I have been using it with the kit zoom lense since purchase,
but I just feel like it is not making the camera "sing" like I want it
to. I do corporate shoots / promos / and small TVC's. I am really after
some lenses that will help me take advantage of the 35mm sensor,
increase that shallow DOF look, and be reasonable quality at the same
Im seriously considering purchasing the Eos canon 7D. But I'm concern with the crop factor thats associated with the 7d. From my research this can be an issue depending on the type of lens, because it can hinder the full potential of the lens. Can anyone assist me with a better insight on which would be a better lens for this particular model.
Anyone try wide-angle attachments & mods like the one discussed here?
I'm thinking of getting one for my new Zi8 that's about to come soon. But I thought I'd post here to see what you all think?
I was wondering do they make a fisheye lens for this video camera?
or can you even attach an different lens in at all on mhs-cm1 webbie?

Bought last year on BH new, its the OVS-FE3X-DVX Century Optics .3x ultra fisheye lens for DVX bayo mount cameras. The glass is FLAWLESS! pictures will be send to serious buyers. like i said, glass is flawless and pictures really dont do justice but will provide with photo and legitimacy contact information within the photo. Im looking to get around $500 for it... its worth much more as we all know but figured at such a good price i could sell it quick

Oh, how times have changed. Just two short years ago, I was shooting on a Panasonic HVX200, previewing my footage on a Marshall monitor, and using a G35 lens adapter in order to achieve depth of field. These were wretched times in which one was forced to make a choice between quality and speed. On one hand, if I was trying to capture beautifully focused footage with a shallow depth of field, I would inevitably be running around like a chicken with his head cut off just trying to get my shots in the limited time my clients gave me.
I ran across this video from the team at Zacuto as they had some filmschool students put together an experimental rig using the Canon 7D with a Panavision Prime lens. This is definitely more for the Advanced Pro's, but I think any true 'Gear Geek' could spare a few centiliters of drool over the potential of this setup. It'll be nice to see what they shot with this rig!
