The perfect choice
even in extreme
conditions

My name is Kajetan and I am a photographer and a filmmaker
and gear fanatic that I could talk about for hours,

When samyang offered to test the lenses, I wanted to take him with me to various places to test he would be able to handle the photography I’m used to, as the wedding
season hasn’t started yet. The morning in the nearby woods was the perfect opportunity for the first tests, as the first snow was to fall, I knew it would be a perfect
opportunity to catch it in bokeh. Thanks to that I will get a great effect. After an early wake-up and morning coffee, I went with my friend to the forest where we had a
small challenge in which he used almost the entire focal range from 18mm to 200mm and I focused on 85, it is one of my favorite focal lengths.

Getting up in the morning for photos is probably the best start of the day, a fresh look at everything about reset is very useful. Already after 30 minutes it started to snow
in the forest but I knew that I had to find a place close to the path so that the branches on which snow is falling will be well lit by cloudy weather which will make a great
softbox. After a few attempts, I was able to take a frame which I am very happy with, I captured exactly how I wanted the snow in the bokeh on 1.4 looks great

Unfortunately, the snow stopped falling quickly, so it’s quiet that I managed to implement the plan. And for the rest of the walk, I didn’t have to feel the pressure or
the disadvantage that would surely stay if I missed that short window. I am also happy with the other frames, but the idea with snow was the initiator of this particular exit.

Another opportunity turned out to be a survival trip to the mountains with a group of friends advanced in the field, unfortunately we arrived at the place practically before
sunset and we had to hurry and the idea of climbing the cross made it even more difficult. However, it was an amazing adventure.

To bring the objections to the limit even more, I took him to a hazy city that sparkled with colors, the temperature was -7 and people hurried to their duties, you can calm
this temperature for photos. The fog also gives the city an atmosphere as everything becomes much more mysterious and each street or building has more history.

My favorite method of testing
the lens to take to extreme conditions
where in these times when
the equipment is almost great you
can really see the advantage of
one over the other,

the Samyang 85 turned out to be the perfect choice thanks to the 1.4 light
I could easily go down to 1/160 sec to keep the rule exposure time without
going to high ISO so I could concentrate on looking for frames and not
combining how to get a great quality picture.This lens did it for me,
a lot of people paid attention to the 85rf camera it looks great with Canon eos r
soon the next adventure is coming and there will definitely be 85 rv lenses,
one lenses that you simply need to have, such as a 35 mm lens and practicality,
such a focal length with such a light will always be useful under all conditions.

Samyang’s Guide to Achieving the Optimal Angle of View

The perfect spacing and distance are always necessary when shooting all kinds of subjects, including people, to give them a proper relationship with the beautiful space around them. So, what’s the exact distance that helps you best appreciate a work of art, or a photo?

The correct answer is the diagonal length of the full frame of a subject.

표준화각 자료 이미지
표준화각 자료 이미지

The best standpoint from which to appreciate the full view of a subject is the distance of the diagonal length of the subject frame. This wider angle is superior to standing closer at a 50 degree angle to get a more detailed view. This notion of an ideal distance or view point is also applicable in the world of photography.

For still images, keeping a distance equal to the diagonal length of the full image surface is recommended. The full frame sensor of a digital camera is 36 x 24mm and the diagonal length is 43.26mm so any distance close to this number is nearer to the ideal than the currently accepted industry standard of 50mm.

Back when film cameras were common, 45mm was the industry standard and this continued as reflex cameras needed extra space to fit a mirror. However, as mirrorless cameras become more popular again, there has been a need to return to this industry standard…which is the impetus for the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE. With less distortion than a 35mm lens and wider angles than a 55mm lens, the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE is a perfect lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture photography, and pictures of pets.
