RED EPIC CAMERA: Macro Lens??
on Sep 30, 2011 at 3:46:32 pm

Hi all!

We are going to do a macro shoot at my work, involving serious depth of field on closeups of skin and shooting textures for backplates. Also, we will be shooting special effects (black/white mattes) to be composited with typography.

We have a Red Camera (Epic) and we are able to rent almost any lens on the market.

We would like an experienced opinion on which type of lenses would be best for this scenario.
Please let us know if you have any input on what lenses would give us the depth of field and detail we are looking for.

THANK YOU!

I've used a Nikon 100mm macro to great effect on a R1 MX for this type of scenario.

If you have a nikon or Canon mount it would br fairly easy to use this lens.

In terms of PL mount glass you can use an ARRI master Macro 100 if you check with a rental house in your area.
