@blackmagicnewsoffical and Premiere Pro @adobe.

The TOP and BOTTOM frames were shot on the 11-20mm T2.9 Tokina Vista Zoom.

In fact it’s the same shot just cropped in. I think any cinematographer as well myself will

tell you never to crop your frame to create two shots! I just did it here to give you an example

how clean the image is cropped. The MIDDLE frame was shot on the 35mm T1.5 Tokina Vista Prime.

I absolutely love shooting on this glass!
