Jason Lanier’s trip is over, but he leaves us with one final Planar video comparing the new Sony Zeiss 50mm Planar to the Sony 85mm G Master. He doesn’t really get into bokeh quality, but it is an interesting comparison, because many debate about what is the ideal focal length for portraiture. I personally like to work with a 50mm, but many like 85mm or longer.
B&H Photo created a great tutorial about color grading that is worth reading if you’re experimenting with video on your Sony camera. Their tutorial will make three way color correction, secondary color manipulation, match color, and more clear to aspiring videographers looking to up their game.
The new Sony a7RII firmware adds radio controlled lighting, improved stabilization and temperature control. It’s good to see Sony continue to improve an already great camera. You can download the new firmware here.
