Introduction to LEICA-R lenses | Budget Buyer’s Guide

This website has been in existence (at the time of writing) for well over 3 year, but until now there hasn’t been a single proper mention of any Leica lenses, which is clearly not right because Leica-R Lenses in particular are incredibly popular for video use. I can’t try them all, but thankfully a fellow… Continue Reading

SANKOR 16F Anamorphic Lens REVIEW

SANKOR 16F Anamorphic Lens REVIEW

I’ve very excited to finally share this post with you guys. Some time ago I came across an Instagram user SAMAMORPHIC, who produces some of the most beautiful, atmospheric and dreamy anamorphic content.

SIRIUS 28mm F2.8 Macro TEST & REVIEW

SIRIUS 28mm F2.8 Macro TEST & REVIEW

Sirius 28mm F2.8 is one of these lenses that I’ve had for a long time now, hoping to test it out some day. It’s an unknown, third party brand and on paper it doesn’t stand out in any way, except for the “MACRO” feature, which is often found on various vintage zoom lenses too, so… Continue Reading

HELIOS 135mm F/2.8 TEST VIDEO

Helios 135mm Test Video

Here is a short test video I’ve shot with my favorite 135mm prime, the Helios 135mm f/2.8. The video above was shot on my little Sony NEX 5N with a simple neck brace for support, so the footage is not the most stable (sorry). Nevertheless, I think it’s easy to agree that this lens produces… Continue Reading

Here is yet another video from Mario Suze giving us a detailed look at Tair 11A 135mm f/2.8 prime lens. Tair is an old, but very solid and very unusual Russian lens. I have two of these myself and although I haven’t tested them yet, this video really makes me want to have a ago… Continue Reading

Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 Test Video

My friend Mark from ThatTechShow has recently shot a lens test video with his new Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.4.  The video was shot on Canon 5D MKII with a neutral (prolost) picture profile for a filming low contrast look.

Here is a quick little test video and a review of Miranda 28mm lens by Michelangelo Girardi. This is what Michelangelo had to say about the lens: Since before I switched to my t3i I was the happy owner of a Pentax DSLR (loved it) I kept some of my old lenses in order to… Continue Reading

TOKINA AT-X 400mm f/5.6 Telephoto Lens | Test Footage

I’ve been using my Tokina 400mm f/5.6 ever since I bought it as an alternative to my Canon 100-400mm as that lens was getting a bit to expensive for the amount of time I was using it. Here is my test video, which shows how Tokina performs against the 10 times more expensive Canon. In… Continue Reading

Yashica Yashinon DS 50mm f/1.4 Lens TEST FOOTAGE

Yashica Yashinon DS 50mm f/1.4 Lens TEST FOOTAGE

I’m a big fan of vintage 50mm lenses. I’ve test 3 fast 50mm primes in this test and ended up keeping the Olympus which I use on daily basis. I also absolutely love my Helios 44-2 58mm lens. There are so many other great 50mm lenses that I’m yet to discover. The video above was… Continue Reading
