I kept repeating to myself: "Thanks Cap' Obvious" but then I realized that this video is probably aimed at very amateur photographer... I would add a few things that help choosing the right focal lengh.
1) Move your feet. Don't simply zoom in and out. Distance between the camera and your subject, foreground, middle ground and background in your composition is a key. A long lense maybe nice to get the compression feeling but you won't get much of the scene unless you are faw away. Instead look at the factors that influence your depth of field and choose wisely. You can get great DOF with a 24mm and 35mm as long as you take in consideration the background distance and your distance to your subject.
2)Minimum focus distance. A close up with a 24mm can be very interesting. We often hear that everything is in focus on a wide angle lens. But that always depends on the distance between the foreground and the background and where your subject is placed.
3)Always pay attention to what's behind your subject... Are you taking a portrait in street? Does your subject has a telephone pole coming of his head?
4)Think about what's is in focus as a big prism that move around depending on what setting you are using: (f-Stop, focal length, distance) even if you are using a lower f-stop doesn't mean that you can't focus on a group of people, they just have to be well aligned with your camera.
Quite beautiful! I often say that it doesn't matter which camera you use and that a well shot film done with a blackmagic can be much better than one done with an Alexa or a Red. This is quite a good exemple of this. Gratz
What is light, without color?
Shouldn't the question be: What is color, without light?
I'm still unsure about this lens! Yes, it "could" remplace a set of 24mm, 28mm and 35mm primes but at the cost of size (82mm filter) and weight (a bit over 2 pounds which is more than 1.5x the weight of either the 24mm 1.4 A or 35mm 1.4 A)
Advantages I could see is if this zoom cost as much one of these prime, then of course, if you can't afford two primes and you are looking the get the zoom function, then it's a no brainer.
But the size and weight still turns me a bit off...
I own a Canon 35 f2 is and I love the size and weight so I'd rather buy a small 24mm prime.
You can only acces Pro Res at UHD resolution. Then you get:
3840 x 2160
Apple ProRes 444 XQ - 250 MB/s
Apple ProRes 444 - 165 MB/s
Apple ProRes 422 HQ - 110 MB/s
Apple ProRes 422 - 73.6 MB/s
Apple ProRes 422 LT - 51 MB/s
Apple ProRes Proxy - 22.4 MB/s
My point was, I would prefer shooting with Cfast in the camera at ProRes 422 than buy a recorder for that!
This ain't a new release, that footage has been out for sometimes now on BMD website. Also.. it looks really good in low light which always been a problem for me with the BMPC4K. We will see once it's out!
