Olympus M.Zuiko 45 mm f/1.8 for Music Concert Photography

To begin with, I have to say that I wasn’t even going to buy Olympus 45 mm 1.8 lens, which is the cheapest wide aperture lens Olympus has to offer. Not because it would be a bad lens, but because the focal length is hard for me.

I just bought the combo pack made by Black Eye. It includes a fisheye lens and a macro/wide-angle lens made for mobile phone cameras. The lenses are attached to the camera with a magnet which is glued on the phone. This makes it easy to use since there is no need for additional phone covers. I believe these same lenses are sold under different brands, and Tom and Jesse have already bought their own.

As you may have seen, we do almost everything ourselves and we definitely appreciate the DIY aspect of our band. We produce and record our own music, and in addition to that we shoot our photos and videos ourselves (except all the live gig photos…). We started out with just some simple compact cameras and handycams, but after a while we felt that we had to find something better.

Canon DSLR

For all the more serious work we use Canon DSLRs, such as Canon 60D and Canon 600D. […] Read more!
