Some Housekeeping

This website,, has been a great resource for cinematographers since 2009. Originally started as a personal blog to serve as a dumping ground for answers to common questions, it continuously evolved into much more. The content expanded from simple thoughts on the motion picture lens industry, to in-depth tutorials, to featurettes with some of the industry’s biggest lens manufacturers. In order to continue providing relevant, timely content, we’re making a few changes around here. All for the better!

Most obvious is the change of name. We’ve always liked “Circle of Confusion” because, you know… lenses. But we never could secure the URL. To keep things easy and focused, we’re rebranding the blog to The Cine Lens with matching URL. We’re expanding our crew to help keep things running smoothly and deliver more content on a regular basis. Matthew will remain the primary contributor, but expect to see more guest posts from industry professionals as well as up and coming cinematographers. We’ll be helping out our fellow blogs with some additional syndication from time to time. And of course, we’ll be doing our annual NAB coverage posts. So subscribe to the blog via email to make sure you’re taking advantage of all the new content we have coming soon.

Now for some of that housekeeping…
