I recently have gotten
into filming bmx and mountain biking. I was just wondering about what
type of lens I should get for my camera. I want a lens that will get me closer
to the action and will enable me to ride behind the person I am filming. I
have looked at the Opteka platinum series 43 mm 0.3x HD Ultra Fisheye Lens. I am really uncertain
about what type of lens I should get for filming riding. It would be awesome if
you guys could give me suggestions for what type of lens would be good for me. http://vimeo.com/5220649 This is the type
of filming that I would like to get into for an example. Thanks!!
If you are trying to get closer to an object you are filming, you'll want a zoom lens attachment. The higher the magnification number, the closer you will get. For example, a 4x lens will get you twice as close as a 2x lens will. A fisheye lens is not designed to do this, but instead it delivers a fisheye effect.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
