    Hi guys check out this video it's so awesome.

    https://vimeo.com/27246366

    It was filmed with a 5d, can you tell me with what kind of lens was it film and the equivalent in micro 4/3.

    Cool video. Not sure what kind of lens, but as for focal length, definitely something in the wide angle range at a high f-stop. For m4/3, something around 14mm would probably work.

    nice one! looks like it's between 20mm-28mm on FF. so I agree with powderbanks, a 14mm would probably work very close to it.

    When you say "high f-stop" it means fast or slow lens? can you say more or less the f-stop in numbers just to have a reference.

    As everyone else, it's just a wide angle lens, set to a high f stop so that there's some decent depth of field. You could do the same thing with a 14-42mm kit lens set to 14mm really. What makes the video cool has very little to do with the specific focal length of the lens used.

    high f stop=small aperture=decent depth of field (?)

    It would be a 'slow' lens, f stop was probably in the f/12+ range. As others said, it gives you much more depth of field (in-focus area)

    What makes you think it is only one lens? Obviously many of the shots are wide and thus a wide lens was used but other shots could have been more in the normal range of focal length. There is also one shot where the lens is zoomed back{or the camera was dollied back but if it was it was a very good dolly!}.

    The coolest thing about this video is the editing! They did a very good job of making it look as if the guy is just walking forward as the background changes. This took a fair amount of planning and lots of shooting BUT mainly many, many hours in post.

    i think we were responding to what the OP can use to get a similar output.

    agree on the editing piece ... though, nothing new really.

    The individual sequences are video. If he followed the 180 degree shutter rule, he was shooting at 1/50, 1/60, or maybe 1/120 seconds. Many of the scenes are bright days, so he may have, as many suggested, stopped down to get the DOF and to obey the 180 degree rule*.

    * It's not actually a rule, more like a rule of thumb.

    I disagree. Asides from causing seizures, I thought it was boring. I liked the music, but that was about it. Sorry if my opinion differed from others'.
