Another “less is more” clip, shot during my fashion shoot with
Xu. Limited my equipment to the Canon 5D2 and the 50mm 1.2 with a Vari filter. My previous blog entry generated a lot of emails wondering how the Zeiss 50mm 1.4 compared to the 50mm 1.2. I have used the Zeiss for a couple of month and really loved it. The Zeiss, a lot smaller, the focusing ring felt a little better, bokeh looked equally beautiful, the only reason I decided to switch to the 50mm 1.2 was AF. It was just too difficult to mf all the time during photo shoots. I was also really excited to use my new IDC follow focus for this shoot, which turned out to be perfect for my workflow. Simple, very good focus pulling and most importantly, I was able to leave it on the camera during the photo session and alternate between photo/video without changing equipment. I have worked with the Redrock micro and liked it a lot, however many of my videos are created during photo shoots and the IDC suits me better . If you shoot video only and are looking for a great expandable package, go for the Redrock micro DSLR kit, photo/video, check out the IDC.
