AbelCine's New Web Series Gives You Hands on Experience with Every Type of Lens

'Behind The Lens' is an exploration of the golden age of cinema lenses.

AbelCine has partnered with Cartel Land cinematographer Matt Porwoll to give viewers a hands-on look at many of the best lenses available on the market.  Often, the true quality of a lens is drowned out by endless tech specs, so this series focuses on the non-technical aspects of cinematography. It's all about the look each lens produces.

From the lowest to the highest end lens, this series ignores prices points and runs the gambit to provide Porwoll's experience with each product. The only criteria is that the lens must all have 3x or higher zoom ratios, and below six pounds.

Episodes are set to run once every two weeks and the first, covering the Fujinon MK, is online now.
