Hello guys, i have a quick question with regards lenses.
I was shooting a TV commercial recently using Carl Zeiss Digi Primes. They are obviously very different from eg Zeiss Ultra Primes when it comes to depth and lens size.
Is there a website with a conversion chart that can tell me the 35mm lens equivalent from the Video lens?

I hope some one can help,
Cheers

Hi,

The 35mm equivalent is about 2.5 times the focal length of a lens for a 2/3 inch chip camera.

OK, great thank you very much. I did a shoot for TVC and wrote all the camera details down for the animator. Then I realised that his program requires the 35mm lens measurements. I shot with the Digi primes.

Thanks very much for your help.
