Film Camera and Lens Equipment
Focus in on camera and lens equipment for your film camera needsMovie film camera equipment has been around since the late 1800s. Capturing motion on a fluid roll of tape at 24 or 30 frames per second instead of a fast series of stopped motion photos was a great catalyst for the movie industry.
Whether you are an amateur or professional film photographer, you want the best camera for the job. Lenses play an important role in filming as they are the catalyst for capturing the image in the form you want. You should know your filming requirements before shopping for cameras and lenses:
1. Prime lenses have a fixed focal length and zoom lenses have a variable focal length.
2. A wide-angle professional camera lens has a focal length of less than 25mm and takes in a wider area than a telephoto lens, which has a focal length of over 50mm and which grabs a narrower shot.
3. The anamorphic professional film camera lens captures great details and clarity, is the most expensive film to shoot and is most commonly used with 70mm film for widescreen production.
