which wide angle lens
on Oct 11, 2013 at 12:32:37 pm

Hi
I have this amazing opportunity to shoot video in a dark space that I will need to light artificially. Some of the rooms are really small and I need to purchase a prime wide angle lens to assist me. I already have the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM but its not wide enough. Any suggestions...I have a small budget.
Thank you

If I were you I'd be looking at renting a lens or two versus buying right now. Since budget is tight a place Borrowlenses.com or similar would be a great resource and save you a few bucks...maybe something like a 14mm prime that is fast meaning 2.8 or below

I agree with Steve. 14mm would be my choice but your client might find it too wide.

Tokina 11-16 if you are shooting on a crop sensor Canon. About as wide and fast as you're going to get. If full frame well the options are all over the place.
