Lens manufacturer Schneider-Kreuznach is announcing e-Mount prime lenses with full-frame coverage at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam. Owners of the Sony A7RII, A7s, FS7 and other E-Mount cameras will soon have something new to consider for their cinema toolkit. The Full-Frame prime lens series was released in 2014 and until now was only compatible with Nikon, Canon, or PL mount cameras. But now these lenses will also be available for E-Mount cameras. These full frame, 4K resolution lenses will be available in the following focal lengths: T2.1/25mm, T2.1/35mm, T2.1/50mm, T2.1/75mm and T2.1/100mm. “With the FF-Prime lenses we want to provide a genuine optical alternative to professional filmmakers and cinematographers. We are delighted that we can meet the considerable demand for a combination with a Sony E-Mount and thus expand the scope for application”, says Harald Barth, Head of Film and Photo at Jos. Schneider Optische Werke GmbH. The lenses will be available later in 2015 and cost between 2,998 and 4,320 euros (or between $3383.87 and $4876.03 USD). Schneider-Kreuznach will be at IBC 2015 from 11 to 15 September 2015: hall 11, stand A41. The Cinema5D team is also at IBC 2015. Stay tuned for more articles and videos regarding the latest announcements at the show.Read more
This is the last of my videos for NAB 2014. It is a tribute to the people who attended NAB and all who followed our coverage. Thanks for your continued support and friendship. The equipment used for this video was: The camera of choice each year at NAB is the good old Canon 5D mark III. Ideal and compact for nice 720p video and shallow depth of field. I used the Technicolor Cinestyle picture profile. The lens used was the great Zeiss CP.2 35mm T/1.5 Super Speed that brought a very lovely and cinematic bokeh to the shots since I couldn’t control any lighting. This was sitting on a very small rig only equipped with an F&V top-handle so it could be attached to an Easyrig Mini that was sitting on my shoulders and is great for handheld on long shooting days. I look ridiculous with this thing, but hey, the result is more important and I can only recommend the easyrig, especially for gymbal usage. On the camera’s hotshoe I had this affordable Azden microphone that went directly into the camera. Unfortunately it was not ideal with all the background noise, but it was a workable solution none the less. Graded with Filmconvert. Music kindly provided by themusicbed.com: A.
