So I will be filming my first music video, and we have a budget, so we were thinking of using a mini35 adapter. Just wanted to get some tips on using it. What are the best lenses to use, how much will it coast to rent for a week, what should I know when using it and whatnot.

I will be using a sony z1 to film with, what should the settings on the cam be?


Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

You can see some of my work at http://web.mac.com/raindropfilms/

hi,

if you can, use cine lenses on PL mount. i own a micro 35 and i have worked with it a lot lately; i can tell you that although nikon and olympus lenses work really well in terms of DOF, there is a huge difference when you put some cinema primes in front of it. if you dont have much lighting i would suggest you to rent a set of SUPERSPEEDS, theyre very fast (1.3), contrasty and quite sharp.
then you have the cooke S4, a bit slower (2.0) but quite soft which sometimes is useful for the video image.
if you cant afford those then some nikon primes are yor best bet.

hope this helps
