Cinematographer Bill Bennett, ASC, recently combined the UWZ with an ALEXA M on an aerial shoot in the skies above LA, using an MBB Bo 105 helicopter and Gyron gyro-stabilized mount from Wolfe Air Aviation.

 

 

"We shot 4:3 ARRIRAW and when I evaluated the images I extracted a 16:9 frame so that I could use the extra room top and bottom to correct framing decisions that were made on the fly. Often I was re-framing to use the upper or lower corners of the 4:3 image, but there wasn't any impact on sharpness because the resolution to the corners is astonishing.

I've seen this lens up on a lens projector and it's ridiculously good; in fact, for how wide it is, it's shockingly good. Every other wide lens I've seen has compromises with the resolution, but the UWZ does not."
