      Hey all,

      I am new and I just got an HMC 150. I have been trying to work on rack focusing on it and having trouble. What do you guys recommend? Do I need to get a better lens? I have been trying to keep my subject far from the background and keeping a good distance between myself and subject. Any tips?

      The HMC 150 only has 1/3″ sensors. That’s pretty small, so you are not getting a shallow depth of field.

      To maximize your results without any special equipment, zoom in all the way and have your aperture open all the way (a small F/stop like F/2.0)

      Thanks Rob. What kind of special equipment do you recommend for improving depth of field? Thx

      35mm lens adapters have been popular for a while. They were the go-to thing until DSLRs started recording video, it seems.

      Check out Letus35 and RedRock Micro. These work by using 35mm lenses to project the image onto a translucent surface that is the size of 35mm film. Your video then records that image. It’s like taking your camera into a movie theater and recording what’s on screen.
