Got myself a Zeiss Distagon for my Sony a6300 – its a 12mm crop sensor lens (=18mm FF) – this combo is my primary field recording & travel camera, as the a6300 has an actual silent shooting mode… and it weighs almost nothing compared with my 5D3 and lenses… I also picked up a new SYRP Genie mini motion control, which is similarly small enough to carry when travelling… Still much prefer shooting full frame with DSLR, but for times when I simply cannot lug two full sets of gear, this combo is going to be a joy!
So I have just finished working out the contra for my favourite work each year (writing/recording the music for the New Zealand International Film Festival Logo as per posted here) and so from my wishlist of 64 films, these are the films I am booked to see at this years festival!
I then unfortunately (although happily!) have a weeks gap in my schedule as I am spending some time on the West Coast of the South island, on a field recording trip… But will then cross the alps & spend 3 weeks based at my parents house in Ashburton, pursuing some other field recording adventures as well as shooting photos & flying my drone in some hopefully snowy landscapes…
So while down South I will make a few trips to Christchurch to see these films:
