Which Camera Lens Should You Use for Videos? (DVG 009)
The lens you use to shoot your videos matters more than you might think.
Each lens gives a different vibe to your videos, has restrictions on apertures you can use and can be really flexible (or not) depending on whether or not it zooms.
In today's episode I'm going to help you figure out what lens you should use to make your videos.
I'll be sharing which lenses I own and why, how a cropped or full sensor impacts the results you get from a lens, what features to consider when choosing, and why you might want to rent a lens and try it before buying it.
