CW Sonderoptic Talks Creating Lenses for Large Format Sensors

CW Sonderoptic Talks Creating Lenses for Large Format Sensors

We spoke with Seth Emmons, Director of Communications of CW Sonderoptic about what he expects to see at this year's NAB Show. Visit them at Booth C3643.

Q With all the major camera companies introducing larger sensor cameras, what is the artistic benefit to filmmakers?

A That’s such an important topic right now because most filmmakers and cinematographers don’t have experience with full format filmmaking. We’re getting these questions a lot. Why should I shoot in full format? What effect does it have on my image?

The biggest change is the new vocabulary of image style and composition that is opened up through a physically larger sensor. Cinematographers are used to telling the AC to throw on a 35mm lens and open up to T2.8. The DP knows what that is going to look like in regard to angle of view for framing and depth of field for composition. No matter what brand lens he or she puts on their Alexa or RED, that 35mm is going to have these same features of AoV and DoF. But, with larger sensors, those touch points shift. Now you can experiment with relative angle of view and relative depth of field for increased creative options.

Interview with LiveU about the upcoming 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas.

Q Finish the sentence: 2018 will be the production industry’s year of _____

A “Doing more with less.” Upping your production game using cost-effective, high-quality gear and production methods. With business models changing, a big trend we are seeing is a shift to more cost-effective ways to work in general. Content creators want to produce more content, but are budget-conscious. And they need to maintain high-production value. A good example of this is cloud production – this allows you to have less gear, less to maintain, and effectively pay-as-you-go when it comes to production. Our Solo Studio – Cloud Graphics is a great example of this.
