Los Angeles Making-Of | Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART Review | Sony a6000 XAVC-S test

Hello everyone, 

from the title you can already guess that this post is about to get cramped. 🙂 It is not only our first post to be done in america, since we have been in LA for about a week. It is also a new making-of video from marie’s first shoot, lucky you it is a bikini shoot, but it also features a few words on the 50mm 1.4 ART lens from sigma and since that isn’t enough we also throw in a few words on doing video with the new XAVC-S codec on the a6000.  So head on to the full post to read all about it and see some pictures from the shoot itself. And don’t forget to watch the video at first:

Marie’s LA Gear

Hi there everyone this is Marie. We are currently right in the middle of our final preparations for our trip to LA starting this weekend. We will be on stay for about 4 weeks and we planned the whole thing as a mixture of vacation and self promotional work. Since we’re leaving in a few days it was about time to check our gear and we thought it might be interesting for a few of you to know what will be in our bags for the trip. In addition Sigma Germany have been kind enough to let me play with their new toys which I will test drive over there and hopefully I will be back with a lot of new pictures and Alex and me might even do a little review about the new Art-Lenses.

How to take pictures of your girlfriend …

 … without risking your relationship, or spending a day with the Sony A7 in Praque.

Hi this is Alex again, with a little tech inspired story about our trip to Praque last weekend. Instead of my main travel cam, my Sony a6000 (read my review) i took my newly acquired Sony A7, with the VG-C1EM battery grip and the new Sony FE 70-200/4. Since i had some space left in my Ona bag i threw in the Sigma Art 1.4/35mm. Not exactly a light carry around all day solution but hey, it was for science‘ sake. In the end it all to take pictures of Marie so i decided to make a little How-To alongside the technical stuff. Enjoy!
