I’ve begun a series of videos about ‘legendary lenses’ – unique, rare or otherwise iconic optics. This is the first episode – naturally it had to be about the ultimate vintage lens, the Helios 44-2.
Last week I got my hands on the brand new IPL and Imicro batteries from IDX to see how they compare to the other V-Lock batteries available.
The Sigmonster. The Bigma. Green Machine. The Tank. This lens has many names; officially, it’s called the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 / 400-1000mm f/5.6. The lens is ten years old, and yet so little is known about it – so I decided to try it out for myself.
Sony and Canon battle to become the new full frame cinema camera champion. Let’s look more closely at the new FX9 and the C500 Mark II and compare them side by side.
Earlier this year I spent five whole days watching batteries drain and then recharge. It was so thrilling that I’ve decided to do it again; this time with industry favourites PAG and IDX.
