Welcome to our new BAM forum!


Maybe a message board on a production company's website is a bit of a stretch. But then again, maybe it isn't. Afterall, as media professionals, directors, producers, writers, and storytellers, one could argue that getting as many opinions as possible could help with overall understanding and objectivity. I guess we'll see. In the meantime, this specific topic deals with Beyond Above Media specifically. In our ever running attempt to get better and gain knowledge, we feel that having a board for our clients, potential clients and onlookers alike to ask questions, provide suggestions, leave comments and/or reviews would be something that we could use to our advantage and learn from. So please be honest and be fair and we will do the same. Thank you.

  • Made an investment in equipment and was able to pick up a couple of prime lenses. What made this possible was that they are vintage lenses and thus a fraction of the price for new primes. So far I've picked up the Canon FD 55mm 1.2 & Cannon FD 200 mm 4. Also picked up a cheap speed booster/converter to mount to my micro 4/3 cameras. All for under $200 total. Really looking to grab one more vintage wide angle, thinking about the Canon Fd 20mm 2.8 to complete my collection for the time being. Really excited about using these primes and getting all that nice, creamy bokeh. Do you have experience with vintage lenses or could you make any recommendations?
