SIGMA recently published an interview with up and coming cinematographer Chris Luong, who shared his experience on filming luxury cars with SIGMA cine lenses for Lucid Motors. In the interview published on the official Sigma blog, Chris revealed his lens kit currently includes the SIGMA 14mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm High-Speed cine primes among others.

You can see example of his most recent work for Lucid shot with SIGMA lenses below.

“...when I started working with Lucid, I needed to make sure I had some quality glass that could reflect our product in a good light. And I found SIGMA Cine when I was doing my research.”

Chris came-up through the DSLR revolution with the T2i and adapted stills lenses as many of his contemporaries and soon after the SIGMA CINE line-up debuted they caught his eye. The impressive build quality and top-notch optical performance helped him to achieve sharp and organic images, which was required in order to make sure the premium vehicles he was filming were presented in the best possible light.

"I absolutely love the build quality. The metal housing makes me feel confident when I’m working with them, and the focus gears work excellently with all of my motors and follow focuses. "

When it comes to the SIGMA Cine primes, the SIGMA 14mm T2 is his wide-angle of choice for shooting car interiors of the car. It's FOV accurately represents the spacious interior the Lucid Air. In addition, the Sigma 14mm High-Speed Cine prime has very minimal distortion and a fantastic build.

The SIGMA 35mm T1.5 is his preferred "go-to" focal length from the Cine prime range especially when he has to work with the Sony alpha cameras on handheld gimbals for smooth shots. The 50mm T1.5 is also frequently used for situations when filming with a bit more compression is needed, while the SIGMA Cine 85mm T1.5 makes for perfect portrait shots with exquisite bokeh.

Sigma 18-35mm and 50-100mm Cine Zooms

It also worth mentioning that Chris also uses the famous Sigma cine zoom duo - the 18-35mm and the 50-100mm. Some of his first SIGMA lenses were the SIGMA 18-35mm T2 and 50-100mm T2 cine zooms, which are very popular for documentary and and run-and-gun work, which Chris has been doing a lot of.

The Sigma Cine 18-35mm T2 is a frequent choice for his content, as it covers the standard wide-to-medium range of most of the work when filming with a camera stabiliser gimbal. The SIGMA 50-100mm Cine on other hand is more suitable for talking heads interviews.
