Adapt and Change August 4, 2007Posted by William J. Meyer in Jack's Pre-Production.
We’ll be shooting Jack with a 24p video camera using an adaptor for photography lenses, so we can capture the depth of field we seek. We just received the adaptor, and today I put it on the camera and ran some tests, and all I can say is “wow!” The 85mm, my clear fav, is particularly awesome. Such a sweet focal length. The 28mm does have some vignetting. For scenes with dark edges, might be okay, otherwise the 35mm is great. There is such little light loss, you’d be surprised. I need to get outside with it; it was too wet today. It’s such a simple tool. I am so on board with this 35mm adaptor movement now!
