Cinematic Settings for Sony NEXs

Autumn – Getting Cinematic with the Sony NEX-5N from Manuel A. Calle on Vimeo.

Guys over at the Digital Visual have this great video out shoot great cinematic scenes with the Sony NEX-5N.  In order to produce such effects, they also posted a workflow on how to shoot cinematic shots on the Sony NEX-5N.  Well as it is pretty standard across the Sony NEX lines and the new Sony Alpha A65 and A77, the workflow can pretty much be applied to all the aforementioned models.  Try and out and see for your self.

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 (Canon Mount)
Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 (Canon Mount)
