Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

On the last stretch now just some fine tuning and the AF101 review will be finished. It’s no mean task filming and editing these reviews it’s a mini production in it’s own right but I would not do it if I did not enjoy it.

This is me being filmed by my son Scott showing me using the Glidetrack HD with the AF101. This camera is a perfect weight for using with a tracking slider like the Glidetrack HD, made up here in Scotland.

This is a still picture from the AF101 using the Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f0.95 lens, now I have some fresh information on this lens, I phoned our supplier today who told me that Cosina the company who make the Nokton lens cannot  keep up with world wide demand for this lens and unless you have a pre order in with them he is not looking to see anymore Nokton lenses before the end of February.

I was rather taken aback by this news and decided to look into an alternative, amazingly for the same money as the Voigtlander lens you can get a Zeiss ZM f2 35mm lens which is almost the best glass money can buy, you also need to add the cost of a Voigtlander M bayonet to mFT adapter. I should get this lens today (Friday) so I will show you the results on the review.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Or try to get a (old) Zeiss 35mm f1.4 C/Y mount… It should be a little cheaper as well.
