Best Wide Angle Lens For Wedding Videographers?
When it comes to shooting weddings you need to make sure you have all your bases covered. This means having the right tools for the job. Being a wedding videographer can be difficult as each location is different and comes with it’s own unique set of challenges. Whether it’s too dark or too cramped, a perfectly suited kit of lenses can become your savour.
Having a wide lens will ensure you capture every moment that happens throughout the day. One of the best uses for a wide lens is when you’re using a steady-cam. A wide lens on a steady-cam creates a natural looking movement and one that is without unnecessary rolls and camera shakes. It lets you capture the days events easily without having to fiddle around with changing your lenses. Another reason to carry a good wide angle lens is when you’re in a tight situation, literally. Some venues are small and moving further away to capture a moment isn’t an option; without a wide angle lens you may completely miss the emotion in a particular moment.
So which wide angle zoom lenses are the best?
We like the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom, it covers all our bases and still gives us the option to zoom when need. Alternatively, we also like the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens. Although this isn’t as wide, it offers a bit longer lens and may be a better option should you only have the budget for one lens. Both lens are 2.8 so shooting in lower light situations becomes a lot easier and you don’t have to rely so heavily on your ISO.
So which wide angle prime lenses are the best?
If we had to pick one wide angle prime lens we go for the Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 Lens. This lens gets you great quality at a decent price.
