    The 28mm F1.8 EX DG ASP Macro from Sigma is a fantastic lens for shooting landscapes, architecture, weddings, and any low light situation. This full-frame, fast-aperture, rectilinear wide angle lens is wide enough to be used in most scenic and landscape assignments as well as building interiors. It’s also useful when shooting large groups of people, as the wide angle effect and field of view is not as extreme as shorter focal length lenses – so it’s great for group shots at weddings or family events. Even though this is a wide angle lens, it has the ability to close focus to 7.9 inches at a magnification ratio of 1 to 2.7, so you can make great macro and near-far effects in your wide angle shots.

          Sometimes, choosing between a prime and a zoom, or a constant aperture zoom and a variable aperture zoom can be a little confusing at first. Each type of lens has it advantages and strengths, and choosing one over the others depends on which features and factors are most important to you.

          • 30 Meters at the beach #3 (with foam)

            The foam that the waves make look better in cinemascope, isn't it? This is a part in a series of clips about the sea, waves, foam etc. Every time now and then (and especially in bad weather and waves) I go down to sea show and shot something over a small stretch of the beach, try some new stuff and techniques, and upload it here. Nerd stuff: Canon 60d, CIneStyle, Sigma lenses: 10-20/3.5, 24-70/2.8, 70-200/2..8 OS (very sharp), zoom h4n, FCP X with colorgradingcentral.com cineLook+Gorilla Grain filter.

            • Sharpening is bad for you (and for Vimeo)!

              This is just several shots of sea water flowing and so creating small waveforms. However, it seems that the way vimeo compressed video ruined this clip, even in 1080p. Or maybe I'm too demanding... You can download the original file i uploaded and check for yourself - it looks better than on the player. And the original on my computer, inside fcp X, looks even more better, without any artifacts. Originally shot on a canon 60d. Edited (and sharpened) on FCP X. Outputted first with vimeo recommended setting of 10 mbits/sec H 2.64, which looked pretty bad, and than with 20 mbits/sec, which looked better and reasonable. Conclusion: dont sharpen too much! It may look great on your computer, but bad on vimeo.

                  My two kids having fun at the backyard and quarreling over the hammock, with Ariel promising to poison Idan. For Vimeo Weekend Project: vimeo.com/blog/post:487 This is a straight edit of with every clip shot during our stay at the backyard. canon 60d, Technicolor CineStyle, sigma lenses, FCP X. PS. I have big hands (02:01), but not that big. Using a wide 10-20 lens makes them huge. music: "Children" by et_ (http://et-official.com/)

                    Some shots of the Nocturne Jazz Quartet show at the local restaurant next to my home, on february 29th, 2012. Nocturne quartet consists of Ari Erev on keyboards, Kobi Salomon on clarinet and saxophone, Simon Star on bass & Gilad dubretzky on percussions. This is the "regular edit": no cinemascope crop, no film grain, no color grading, only color correction, Titles in hebrew, as was upload to (cough, cough) youtube. Check out the cinemascope, graded version: https://vimeo.com/39013649 Sorry for all the people bumping into me, stepping on the audio cable, walking in front of the camera, eating and drinking, using their cell phones etc. Great performance by the band, though! Geek stuff (and lots of it): Shot on a canon 60d with magic lantern (great for focus) and Technicolor CineStyle, Manfrotto monpod, 3 Sigma lenses (10-20/3.5, 24-70/2.8, and the best value 70-200/2.8 OS. Sound recorded on location with zoom h4n. Edited on FCP X, color corrected and graded with colorgradingcentral.com S curve and cineLook+Gorilla Grain (great plug-in). Exported and cropped with Compressor. Comments & Questions are welcomed!
