what lenses to buy for bmpcc for shooting product demo videos from closeby?
I need to shoot product videos / demos from closeby (1-2 meters distance) in varying light conditions and want to know what lenses are must haves for my bmpcc. I already have these two lenses:
Olympus 9mm 1:8.0 Fish Eye Body Cap Lens
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:1.8
I also have this adapter
Nikon to Micro Four Thirds,K&F Concept® Lens Mount Adapter Nikon G Lens to Micro 4 3 Adapter Nikon G AF-S F Lens to Micro 4/3 M4/3 Mount Adapter Nikon G-M4/3
And I have a cheapo kit lens that came with my Nikon DX10 camera years ago. I think it's this one -
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II Zoom Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras
The problem with the lenses I have is that I can't seem to cover all situations when shooting video. I want a high quality image and a lens that is easy and quick to work with and covers all situations.
I am not using this camera to shoot portraits or interviews or outside scenery. This is mostly indoor shooting.
I've read online about the Sigma 18-35mm with speedbooster people are raving about but since i'm a novice video maker and I'd rather get some advice before spending serious money on lenses.
Ideally I'd like to spend less than $300 on this new lens i'm planning to buy.
