I know all of you do not have large budgets. This is why I try and help you get your creation looking its very best at a reasonable price tag. When shooting a movie, I always have to match different lenses to some extent. On Need for Speed, I was using Cooke S4 Primes, Canon Cinema Zooms, Canon Lightweight Zooms, Zeiss ZE, Canon L Series, Leica Rs, Canon CP and GoPro’s cheap plastic lens.
That is one huge collection of glass to match. Each one has its own characteristics and you need to blend these to create a seamless flow. One might be sharper or softer, warmer or colder, have more contrast or less contrast.
