SIGMA Ambassador Graham Sheldon explains how he was able to capture the magic, hilarity and drama of the latest season of Dimension 20 from behind the camera.
Recently here at Yonder Blue Films, based near Atlanta, Georgia, we were fortunate to be asked by Blackmagic Design to be one of the first production companies to try out their new Pocket Cinema Camera 4K on a project. I…
Actor Brian Jordan Alvarez and Director of Photography Jordan McKittrick created the feature-length comedy “Grandmother’s Gold” using only two Sigma Art lenses: the 18-35mm Art and 50-100mm Art.
If you’re a director of photography hoping to shoot a micro-budget movie as efficiently as possible, there are ways to plan ahead and achieve every bit of production value you can.
With it’s introduction back in 2013, the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM | Art lens took the photography world by storm as the first wide angle zoom with a 1.8 aperture. A wide angle has it’s place in sports photography, albeit on a more limited scale than my go to sports lens, the Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 DG OS HSM lens.
Motes “Freeway” by Swede Films was captured through the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM |Art lens and the 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art lens on a Black Magic Cinema Camera. We talk with the filmmaker about his experience crafting this music video with these two Art lenses.
The Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art is the world’s first full-frame zoom lens with a constant F2 maximum aperture, and its 1.45x zoom range manages to bridge three of the most popular wide angle fixed focal lengths for lenses: 24mm, 28mm and 35mm. The zoom range is subtle, but the compositional effects are noticeable as the smooth zoom ring shifts the field of view from 24mm through to 35mm.
Whether as a gift for your favorite dad, or recent grad, or for yourself before a big summer adventure, there’s great Sigma gear for everyone’s photographic style!
In the last few weeks I have had the chance to travel with Sigma’s 18-35mm F1.8 lens to New Jersey, Las Vegas and Chicago. The lens was put through the tests on a Canon 7D, 50D, and 60D. I was so intrigued by the lens that as a full-frame shooter, I went and found a cropped sensor camera just to use it. It was well worth it.
2014 was a very busy year for Sigma. We announced a host of new lenses and cameras, offered the Sigma dp2 Quattro Test Shoot, and participated in trade shows, and dealer events across the country. Photographers all around the world have been talking about our new lenses in the Art, Sports, and Contemporary lines, as well as the completely redesigned dp series cameras.
