first video with samyang 16mm 2.0

I got the lens last night and while I was running errands today I stopped at a park to test it out for the first time. I had to upload it to youtube from my ipad so the compression even @ 720p is no where near as clear as the original but more 1080p videos uploaded from my macbook pro will be coming soon.

I installed a tiffen circular polarizer right away.

Here is my first video

Not bad! Video seems a tad dark in areas but other than that quite nice. Seems like that Samyang is a keeper! Look forward to future videos!

You are right, I was playing with different apertures from 5.6-8 in these clips. I need to get used to the brightness of the live view screen.. Although, I did no edit or color correction in post with this video. Normally if it is underexposed you can fix it easy in post but cannot so much if overexposed. After viewing these clips I think I could have kept the lower aperture setting even though it seems a tad bright on the screen.

I will be heading to the dog park in an hour or 2 so I will have some more clips soon.

Overall I am very happy so far with the performance

Went to the dog park to make this video, the only setting I did not think about was the white balance! you can tell it really messed with the color tone. I'm having fun learning little by little!
