New Addition – Sony – Sigma Art Lens

Our first big addition to the cage this summer is the Sony Sigma Art Lens Kit. This kit includes seven high-speed prime lenses that have earned a nice reputation over the last few years. Our kit includes the 14mm f/1.8, 24mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, 70mm f/2.8 Macro, 85mm f/1.4, and 135mm f/1.8. Each lens has a fast maximum aperture to help with low light levels and each produces a beautiful image. The 14mm is the widest lens that we offer and the 70mm is a macro lens to get that telephoto look in an extreme close-up while being able to get physically close to your subject.

These lenses are manufactured as a sony e-mount lens and will only be available for checkout with the Sony FS5 and FS7 cameras. They are an advanced lens kit and will be prioritized for upper level production courses.

If you’r interested in using these lenses for a project, keep your eye on the Workshop Calendar. The workshop will be paired with other advanced lenses in the equipment room and should take about 1.5-2 hours.

WANTED: Celtic Harp Recording 
DATE: Flexible

A good friend who plays Celtic harp is looking for someone to make a short video of her playing, to put on her website. She doesn’t have a whole lot of money to pay for this, so is wondering if maybe someone could do it as a class project or just to gain experience. She’s happy to bring her harp wherever necessary. 

Editing Gig

I am a local resident looking for student or staff help on a modest video project. I’m a senior citizen, reasonably skilled in digital photography (Photoshop, etc.) but not in video. I have over a dozen CD’s of analog family video that has been digitalized and now wish to edit and sort it. I note your involvement in Digital Projects and wonder if you could recommend someone who might have some time to get me started on the project. I’m an Apple user with a 27” iMac so probably have the computer capability of handling the project. I’d guess that it might involve  5 to ten hours over a month or two and am, of course, prepared to pay for the help.

I look forward to your suggestion/s.
