how is the ANGENIEUX 12-240mm ZOOM
Posted 01 May 2007 - 01:02 PM
I was wondering if anyone has ever used the ANGENIEUX-12-240mm-ZOOM-LENS-in-ARRI-Mount? It's going to be on an Arri-S
I need a lot of zoom to shoot surfing shot for a project. The surfer are up to 250 meters away. Would this be a good choice?
What is a comparable lense to Angenieux 12-240 that you guys would recommend?
Also, would a lense of this size need extra support (Rods / tripod collar) on an Arri-S? Or can I just mount the lense on the camera without extra support?
here's the link to the lense:
Thanks in advance

I'd think you'd want the support. With Std mount especially.
As alternative their are the Optex Canon conversions but would be B or PL mount and cost quite a few $$ more.

I just bought that lens and shoot some surfing myself. It cost me 400 on ebay, I may have commited a mistake but for Motorcycle racing, surfing, and sports that are usually outdoors but far away that 250 comes in very handy. I hope to shoot with it soon and i'll let you know.
