A new focal length has been added to strengthen the set.
Angenieux's new Optimo Primes offer filmmakers small lightweight full frame cinema primes made specifically to match Angenieux's line of cinema zooms. The Optimo Primes feature a unique design that allows the iris assembly, an internal glass element, and a rear filter that can be swapped out, providing filmmakers with a versatile tool for creating dynamic images. The lenses are fast ranging from T1.8 for most focal lengths to T2 and T2.2 for the 18mm and 200mm respectively. Each lens features Cooke i/Data and ARRI LDS for lens metadata capture.
Caldwell Chameleon Anamorphic Full Frame Primes
The Caldwell Chameleon Anamorphic prime lenses offer a retro anamorphic look with modern mechanics. The entire 1.79x squeeze set, 48mm, 60mm, 75mm, 90mm, 112mm, & 150mm will cover full frame sensors and offer the traditional optical aberrations and flare characteristics unique to front anamorphic lenses. The Chameleon Primes employ a Stokes focus system that creates a fairly unique focusing experience compared to many other anamorphic primes. The aesthetic result is the compression of the subject in the vertical plane only. This creates an artistic “attention pull” without creating a “zoom” effect as well. Also, this system helps maintain a constant anamorphic compression across the entire field of view. This more uniform compression helps reduce the “mumps syndrome” that occurs in many other anamorphic lens designs. The complete set can also be converted to Super 35 coverage for cinematographers hoping to capture more edge aberration and optical character on smaller formats.
Leitz Cine Zooms 25-75mm
Leitz Cine Zooms 55-125mm
The Leitz Cine Zoom set consists of the 25-75mm and 55-125mm. Both zooms are a fast T2.8 and designed to cover full frame formats. They are color matched with the Leitz Primes and feature no light loss over the entire zoom range when zooming. They exhibit exceptionally low distortion, minimal breathing, and no visible chromatic aberration.
Tribe7 Blackwing7 20.7mm Prime
Tribe7 has expanded the set of Blackwing7 lenses with the 20.7mm. This new focal length widens the set while providing the same vintage look that makes the rest of the set so popular. Manufactured in all three tunings, the 20.7mm is a perfect compliment to the rest of the Blackwing7 set.
