Talking Camera Set-ups.

G’day all,

I went and threw the cash at a Sigma Art lens finally. I have been talking about it for months, when trying to decide on which I should get! What a rough couple of months, I tell you. I use the Canon C100 and I wanted some flexibility from wide to standard portrait shots, also wanting to keep it as wide-open as possible. The Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 Art just made me feel the best over the other options. I was a little bit scared buying a Sigma lens, as I have had 3 old EX models in the past and they were OK. The 24-70 f/2.8 was nice but I broke it on a downhill skate competition, which I was really bummed about, actually. A 50-500 “Bigma” f/4-6.3 and that was just too huge for what I did/do. And I forget the other one, but I think it was so shit that I sold it within a week of buying it – too many focusing issues for my liking.

Quality is what I was hunting for, really, in the quest to find such a lens. Money is not really something I care about when getting good tools for my arsenal. So the Sigma won and I have used it on 2 small jobs now and am really surprised at the pro-quality and the feel of this glass.

What I will do in the next weeks is make a short film or music video just using the Sigma and give it a quick run-down of why I think it is such a great little lens for the price. Until then, I will just throw up some pictures of some Behind The Scenes, taken by Annika Greschl, who was assisting me on the STRAMU Festival in Wuerzburg, Germany.
