Filmmaking Lenses for the T3i
on Aug 28, 2012 at 12:33:29 am

Greetings,

I'm going to be shooting web videos, short films, interviews and documentaries with a Canon T3i. Some of the videos will be shot using green screen.

Can someone please make some suggestions as to what type of lenses would be a good choice for filmmaking with this camera?

If using lenses other then Canon, what adapters would I also need?

I appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

This post was written with the BMCC in mind but can be applied to the T3i as well: http://wolfcrow.com/blog/master-guide-to-rigging-a-blackmagic-design-cinema...

For an all round lens, if you can afford it, I'll highly recommend Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS

Otherwise, the Tamron mentioned in the article is good enough.
