Wich lenses for DSLR video shooting "declick or not?"

Hey everyone,

I got a shoulder rig for my Canon 60D and I'm about to buy a few new lenses to film in lower light situations.

My question is; what are the best lens buying options for a DSLR video shooter?

I did some of the research myself and found out that there is a technique called "declicking" It removes the jumps in your aperture when adjusting it to a different light setting. It goes very smoothly and makes it able to move from a dark room to a light one without seing it. The problem is that you need to have a lens with a manual aperture ring. But for video such a lens would be great !

With al these things said are there anny lenses available good for video with a(n) ?

  • Image stabilizer

  • Manual aperture ring

  • Standard focal distance

  • Lower light situations

If not what would be a good option/replacement for a DSLR videoshooter?

Feel free to comment, give some suggestions or ask some questions !
