sigma unveils 35mm f/1.4 art lens for mirrorless

Sigma has announced its new 35mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens for Sony E bodies and L-Mount cameras, heralding the optic as “the new gold standard in wide-aperture 35mm primes”. The lens is a new interpretation of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM, which was released in 2012 and was the company’s first Art lens. Sigma says the lens has been “redesigned from the ground up”. The new lens is smaller and lighter than the original, and includes a range of new features that Sigma says have been tailored to the mirrorless shooting experience, including ultra-fast autofocus, a de-clickable aperture ring with lock switch, a customisable AFL button and a lockable hood. The optical design comprises 15 elements in 11 groups, including two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements, an Extraordinary Low Dispersion (ELD)…

the photographer’s guide to pro video

For photographers who’ve spent years learning to capture the decisive moment in a single frame, videography can be an intimidating area of image capture. The rules of shooting moving images fly in the face of many of the established, and therefore well-practised, techniques of stills photography. Furthermore, the need for new and often costly equipment means additional outlay, which can be a daunting prospect when you think about all of the holidays you’ve already missed out on because you had to outfit your photography kit bag. This can all lead to a general reluctance to explore beyond the realms of stills photography, which can limit our creative horizons – never a good thing in today’s world of rapidly evolving tastes for content. Video provides a whole new way of conveying a…

choose a microphone type

SHOTGUN MIC So-called because of their physical design, these mics are popular with vloggers and in cinema movie production. They’re great for capturing directional sound, and can be hotshoe mounted or placed on a boom. Best for overall quality. LAVALIER (LAV) MIC These are small, portable microphones which easily clip onto the speaker’s clothing to keep them in close proximity to their mouth. These are the best choice for interviews and voice capture, but they can be more prone to interference than other options. STUDIO MIC As the name suggests, these are ideal for indoor, studio-based video. While they can be used elsewhere, they’re designed to be placed on a desk, so are less practical for use outdoors. The perfect choice for voiceovers or talk-to-camera clips.…

choose your gear

At one time the only cameras used to shoot high-end, professional motion content were large, heavy and expensive dedicated cinema models – travel back in time a couple of decades and the idea of being able to shoot pro-level footage on a camera you could carry in a coat pocket would have been laughable. This is likely one of the reasons many photographers who are used to shooting with 35mm format (full-frame) cameras and APS-C models in the digital age assume video is still a foolishly expensive endeavour. It’s true that high-end video kit is highly specialised, and comes with a price tag to match, but incredible results are now possible from the latest crop of enthusiast/professional-level mirrorless and DSLR cameras. Even smartphone cameras are capable of outstanding quality, meaning…

best lens choices

FAST SHORT TELEPHOTO With video, getting lots of light into the camera is important. A 135mm f/1.8 or 85mm f/1.2 is ideal for shallow-focus effects and for shooting in low light, when you don’t want to raise the ISO much above 800. 24-70MM F/2.8 A 24-70mm zoom lens is ideal for documentary video while still retaining fairly compact proportions. The constant aperture is critical for exposure continuity, preventing changes in brightness when zooming. WIDE PRIME A 14mm f/2.8 prime is great for inclusive night-time scenes. The lack of zoom is not an issue since the camera can be moved within the clip, and the prime optics give superior sharpness and distortion control.…
