In this video we look at all the lenses and adapters I use to make videos. A Lot of people have asked about the glass I use so here we are!
A Few Things to Note
First, you don’t need all these lenses to get started. I started with a kit zoom and a 50mm and used those for years before investing in more glass.
Secondly, I don’t use all of these lenses everyday. Most of the vintage lenses are for B-Roll and certain videos where I need to explain a lens concept. Every time I sell a lens I end up needing it for a video.
Finally, don’t buy new! I only own 1 new lens! All my other lenses were purchased used. There are great deals to be had out there and vintage lenses are a big bang for your buck when getting started.
