Camera Gimbal and Canon 50mm f1.4

Hello Ladies and Gents!

It’s been a busy past couple of weeks or so and I have not had much time to do anything besides work. My full-time job at Storm Cloud Marketing ( has been crazy busy for clients then almost every weekend I am out shooting wedding films with Tim Toms photography ( and then shooting sports here and there for the Joplin Globe.

The other day I finally got some time away from all of the jobs and went out with my Zhiyun Crane 2 and the Canon 50mm f/1.4 and went out to some local walking trails. the 50mm is a little slow for video on the autofocus side of things when compared to my usual go-to lenses, the 35mm f2, and 16-35mm L. One huge benefit to the 50mm is the shallow depth of field. The bokeh on the lens is great for video and photo but I loved how it turned out shooting video this week. Below you can see what I am talking about and just so you all know, this footage was shot in 60 frames per second. I adjusted the speed on the clips, some to 40% and some sped up to 150%. No post production stabilizer was done and it’s so smooth and that’s why I love my gimbal so far!

If all of you want to know more about the gimbal or the lens just comment below!

I am hoping to have more blogs coming soon and want to say thank you to the select few that keep coming back to my blog.


Until next time, stay ON THE SHUTTER!
