WHAT IS V-AF

Introducing the world's first cine auto-focus lens line-up, V-AF.

V-AF was created for all video creators, ranging from single-person video creators to small productions as well as filmmakers. With the development of interchangeable lens cameras and the prevalence of video accessories, anyone can easily produce video content. Samyang Optics will apply elements optimized for imaging to autofocus lenses to satisfy creators' desire to create high-quality video content more easily.

V-AF has increased compatibility from the gimbal to the drone by applying the consistent form factor from ultra-wide angles to semi-telephoto angles. The tiny size of ∅72.2 x 72.1 mm and light weight of 280g reduced the burden of drone payloads. As the V-AF series provide a unified center of gravity and size, there is no need for extra setting which greatly reduces time when it comes to using a gimbal.

There is a Tally Lamp that displays the filming status with LED light so even a single creator can quickly check the recording status. The focus ring has been redesigned to allow follow focus to be applied without additional accessories. There is also a custom switch and a focus button to set the optimized function for filming.

With V-AF customized accessories for professional video shooters and consistent color tone which V-AF represents, videos can be created more conveniently.

Samyang’s Guide to Achieving the Optimal Angle of View

The perfect spacing and distance are always necessary when shooting all kinds of subjects, including people, to give them a proper relationship with the beautiful space around them. So, what’s the exact distance that helps you best appreciate a work of art, or a photo?

The correct answer is the diagonal length of the full frame of a subject.

표준화각 자료 이미지
표준화각 자료 이미지

The best standpoint from which to appreciate the full view of a subject is the distance of the diagonal length of the subject frame. This wider angle is superior to standing closer at a 50 degree angle to get a more detailed view. This notion of an ideal distance or view point is also applicable in the world of photography.

For still images, keeping a distance equal to the diagonal length of the full image surface is recommended. The full frame sensor of a digital camera is 36 x 24mm and the diagonal length is 43.26mm so any distance close to this number is nearer to the ideal than the currently accepted industry standard of 50mm.

Back when film cameras were common, 45mm was the industry standard and this continued as reflex cameras needed extra space to fit a mirror. However, as mirrorless cameras become more popular again, there has been a need to return to this industry standard…which is the impetus for the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE. With less distortion than a 35mm lens and wider angles than a 55mm lens, the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE is a perfect lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture photography, and pictures of pets.
