Hi, 

 

I'm last year student in Cinematography school in Belgium, and I'm making a end-of-year work about extreme telephoto lenses used in Cinema.

 

I saw a part of the movie Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by DP Hoyte van Hoytema where they use a 2000mm to compress the foreground and the background. The result is wonderful : https://vimeo.com/152514220

 

So I'm looking for other movies, other shot like this one. If any DP here already used big lenses (over 500mm with 35mm sensors), I'm interested to ask them some questions.

 

Thanks in advance, 

 

Arnaud Serexhe

There's some of this in the battle scenes in Barry Lyndon. John Alcott used a 25-500 zoom.
