One great thing about using the Fujifilm XT-3 for filmmaking is its tiny size and weight. Part of that is due to the fact that the cameras lenses are extremely compact. Below are three of the main lenses we'll be using to film various aspects of CUP CONFIDENTIAL, each having its own benefit.
The 16mm, for example, is an excellent wide angle lens, though it's not overly fast with an aperture of just f/2.8 wide open. This lens will mainly be used for establishing and scenic outdoor shots. The 50mm will be the workhorse of this production, it'll be used for both interior interviews on a tripod as well as some exterior b-roll scenes. This lens will give us some really nice depth-of-field when chatting with people too. And finally, the 18-55mm is a great run-and-gun lens as it has internal image stabilization with a various aperture of f/2.8-4.
Combined with an assortment of filters, these lightweight lenses are wonderful pieces of glass and will help give the film the look we're going for.
