Here’s a deal on a lens that I highly recommend for such cameras [...]

18Feb Samyang 24mm F/3.5 Tilt Shift Lens for Canon Nikon Sony


Tweet
Here’s an interesting new 24mm F/3.5 Tilt-Shift lens from Samyang. This is the first tilt shift i’ve seen from the company even when branded under Rokinon, Bower, and sometimes Vivitar. There’s not much information on the new lens just yet, and it’s too rich for my blood, but it’s already available and listing for just [...]

03Feb Samyang 24mm F/1.4 Prime Manual Lens – Available


Tweet

Who doesn’t love the Samyang (or a.k.a Rokinon) 35mm F/1.4 prime? It’s a decently sharp lens with fast aperture for a not so bad price. I couldn’t pass up a recent deal and was able to grab (2) of them for just $375 the other day.
The 35mm focal length is nice for Full Frame [...]

24May Samyang 35mm F/1.4 on 5D Mark II


Tweet

Very few samples are online about Samyang’s latest 35mm F/1.4 lens, but here’s the one I was interested in from Vimeo member Didier Hartong. While a lens may look fine on a Canon 7D, it could look totally different on a Full Frame camera. This is a decent test of the Samyang on a Canon [...]

25Feb The Shift without the Shift – 500mm Mirror Lens


Tweet
I’m still set on getting some type of Tilt Shift lens (eventually), but if you just want to experiment putting some videos together you can do this without an actual Tilt Shift lens. One of the popular tricks is to shoot far. Really far. Here’s an example of a Tilt Shift video I posted that [...]

22Dec Budget Manual Focus 85mm F/1.4 Lens


Tweet
Samyang, Rokinon, Bower, or Vivitar. It’s believed they are all the same lens, with a slightly modified exterior and sold under various brands. Who knows what these lenses are being sold as, but then again you might not even care. Rumor mill has it that these lenses are being made out of Korea providing images [...]
