Featured Friday, 28 July 2017 20:25

Check out this weeks sponsor Soundstripe: We colour our videos with LUTs from LUTIFY: http://bit.ly/LUTIFY

Check out next weeks Prize - the 12mm f2.8 Laowa Lens: http://bit.ly/Laowa12mm

NEXT THEME - LINES - Win a 12mm f2.8 lens from Venus Optics
The ‘Zero D’ model is the widest full frame f2.8 lens on the market, and offers extremely low distortion for such an ULTRA WIDE.

This is a rectilinear lens - not a fisheye, it is specially designed to keep straight lines as straight as possible. One cool thing is that they make their own filter adapter for this guy, which allows you to use 100mm filters on the lens - perfect for landscape work.

Enter your LINES themed shot in the next 6 days at http://www.mattgranger.com/toglife to win one!
