In the 3rd episode of ON THE COUCH, we hosted our show sponsor ZEISS to talk about their company and news in the lens area. Our guests were Michael Schielen, Sales Director at the Camera Lens Division of ZEISS, Dr. Aurelian Dodoc, ZEISS’s Principal Scientist for lens development, and Barry Anderson, an American filmmaker and author of the well-know DSLR Filmmakers Handbook. ...
As the holiday season comes to a close, so do retailer sales. B&H and Canon are wrapping up a large sale on DSLRs and lenses tomorrow (04/01/2013), here I’ve highlighted the most popular and significant DSLR/lens combos in the sale for filmmakers.
The rebate price (in red) is what’s advertised on the B&H website, the checkout discount (black) is what you get when you add any item to cart. This is an additional discount on top of the initial rebate and is listed like this due to items having a MAP (Minimum Advertised Price)....
B&H currently has a special deal on the Samyang 8mm fisheye lens for a limited time. It’s probably hard to ever get this one for less. ...
This video makes me feel hesitant about shooting on a Panasonic GH2, but the lens looks exciting.
SLR magic is a lens manufactured based in Hong Kong and their affordable Noktor primes that all have an aperture of F/0.95 are very successful among HDSLR shooters.

SLR Magic just confirmed that they are now woking on creating some inexpensive anamorphic lenses.
The company is known to produce the famous Noktor primes that have an extreme lowlight capability with their f-stop of f0.95. ...
LockCircle is finally done with their nice, compact & professional sliding mattebox.
We’ve been reporting exclusively about LockCircle’s “Prime Circle” cine EF lenses at NAB 2012 (LINK) and were given the chance to take a look at it there. See the full video on said coverage below. ...
If you’ve been shopping affordable manual prime lenses for your HDSLR then you’ve probably stumbled upon or even own the famous Samyang / Rokinon lenses like the $500 35mm f/1.4 or the $400 14mm ultra-wide.
“Rokinon 35mm T1.5 cine lens will be available in U.S in few weeks and Rokinon 24mm T1.5 & 14mm T3.1 cine lens will be available in U.S in September.” ...
This was shot with the lenses stopped down to around f4.0, some shots show some fringing though and others reveal something that looks like lens softness to me and I would think more open apertures were used at times. I think this suggests that the small sensor will probably bring out the worse parts in your large lenses. It would make sense as a much smaller portion of the glass is used on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s small sensor, but is blown up to HD resolution as we’re used to. ...
