Very nice tutorial!  Most tutorials are overextended and annoyingly wordy, this exception to the rule made me very happy, its perfect!!!

So i am using a canon eos 600d with a sigma 10-20mm f.4-5.6 lens.
But when i am filming with this lens i can some really bad looking, drainy and unusable shots, i even get this in automatic mode! I usally film outside on sunny days, because i mostly film skateboarding, so light shouldn’t be an issue. So what am i doing wrong? Some help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey, super Review! Überlege gerade mir ein Ultra-Weitwinkel für meine Nikon D5300 zuzulegen. Ist der fehlende Bildstabilisator ein Problem? Oder kommst du damit gut klar? Und hast du Erfahrungen was die f/3.5-Version angeht? Könnte aufgrund der größeren Offenblende zum Filmen ja vielleicht besser geeignet sein, oder?

Bought one of these and it’s superb, I’ve been in the industry for over two decades, and filmed with just about everything out there including film, but for a DSLR this is astonishing, it not only gives you super wide shots as stated, but some how there is no curve to the edges, this lens in turn basically makes everything you shoot with it look vast in scope, I have also used it to photograph miniatures, one in case being a practical effect, a long drop into a cavern which was a shot model, after zooming all the way back with this. I must have added a dramatic looking two to three metres onto the shot making the model seem far grander in scale and the slight exaggeration to the vanishing point gave it that cinematic appearance, it also has a generous depth of field so none of this material looks miniature with blurring that occurs from the use of other lenses like the Canon pancake (another great one I have), that allows me to shoot live action miniatures with nodal pans . I can recommend this one for sure, superb addition to any kit for a serious film maker on a low budget. Build small and scale up with the Sigma.

I have this lense , but without af/m option. It’s like focus override thing. Is it possible to shoot manually? I have tried “m” in my Nikon but it still focus ( automatic )

Hector Felipe Muñoz Avalos says:

I have the same problem than David. My lens don’t have the option of AF/M… It’s possible to shoot manually?
