25mm f1.4 CCTV lens review. Get the ‘film look’ with a cheap lens. I buy a cheap C mount CCTV lens on eBay and experiment with it to achieve a filmic look using a Panasonic GH4 camera. The lens at its widest aperture is f1.4 and creates a dreamy, filmic appearance with excellent bokeh. It is a fully manual lens and comes with extension tubes to achieve macro images plus an appropriate camera mount adaptor – in my case micro four thirds.
Filmed with a Panasonic GH4. Intro and conclusion filmed using a Lumix 14-140mm lens, all other video recorded on the CCTV lens. Edited in iMovie. Rode Videomic Pro.
At the end of the video I apply a 3.0 Superwide cinema mask in post to create the illusion of cinematic style on a tiny budget.
