Guide to lenses for weddings and events!

Here's a video put up by the people at Stillmotion that, within five minutes, provides a lot of good advice for people shooting weddings and events. For those of us shooting weddings and events and wondering which lenses are best for certain situations – well, our planet5D friends StillMotion have just the quick tutorial for you! It's aimed at Canon shooters, but as a Nikon guy I still came away with good insight and considered it blog-post-worthy.

“stillmotion‘s guide to lenses for weddings and events // a cinema caravan tutorial” is shown below. It is packed with good info and insight.

I've been entranced with the video that many photogs are aquiring using DSLRs for video. The lens selection and the sensor size available makes control of DOF look like footage was shot with 35mm. There are plenty of other factors to consider, including the human factors of handling a DSLR and getting it to do the things a videographer needs to do. And then there is audio . . .

Also take note of the steadicams and camera platofrms they use. You may need to give this one some time to load-- it's pretty dense.
