Vanity Fair has published an interview on its YouTube channel with American cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel – who was director of photography for Bohemian Rhapsody, X-Men: Apocalypse and The Usual Suspects amoung many others. He talks about the way different focal lengths make people and objects in the scene feel closer together or further apart, and how the sense of perspective is altered depending on the camera position and the amount of background included in the shot.
During the interview Sigel talks us through clips from Three Kings, Drive and Bohemian Rhapsody explaining what he hoped to achieve in that particular shot and the lenses he used to do it. It’s a fantastic watch with an experienced and well-spoken artist.

The EOS M6 Mark II renews Canon’s commitment to making small, enthusiast-friendly APS-C mirrorless cameras. With 4K video, 30 fps Raw bursts and additional controls, it’s a big step forward from its predecessor. And perhaps more interesting than the EOS 90D.
The 90D is essentially the DSLR version of the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera that was introduced alongside it. Like the M6 II, it features a 32MP sensor, Dual Pixel AF, fast burst shooting and 4K/30p video capture. It will be available mid-September.
The S1H is a full frame mirrorless camera designed with videographers in mind and includes advanced features like 6K video capture, 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording, improved video scopes, high frame rate recording, Panasonic Varicam color science and more.
