So, today, we’re out filming with the Canon Cine-Servo, the 17-120mm. It’s a fantastic lens. I think this range is perfect for a lot of broadcast- and documentary-style work. You just…you got your wides, you can easily punch in and get your close-ups, and even your tights on the same lens. And it’s quick, and easy, tactile…love it.
Now, you can remove the motor, and you can go more towards a cinema-style setup, so you can have follow focus and move this stuff out of the way with the ease of a studio shoot as well.
So, the lens comes with the broadcast-standard 12-pin serial communication port. With this setup, I’m running it off of Antons and an adapter plate, so I’m not running directly off the camera. I don’t have any options for that yet as far as the C500. So I’ve been running around with this lens for almost half the day. It’s been on my shoulder. It’s very easy, very light. It’s only 6.4 pounds, which means I can run around with it all day, and I really won’t get that fatigued, especially since I’m not changing lenses.
So, all in all, I think it’s a really fun lens. I think it’s going to be really, really useful for documentary-style shooting. I don’t know about studio application so much yet, but, until I get in that situation, we’ll see.
