12-Lens Set Of Leica Summilux-C Primes From Picture Canning

News Image
Facilities house Picture Canning recently announced it is stocking a full 12-lens set of Leica Summilux-C Primes, which are available to hire from both its Newcastle and London offices.

The groundbreaking new line of PL mount primes is designed to deliver ultra-high optical performance for both film and digital images.

The lenses are not only some of the fastest around but are designed to work their best when wide-open. The full set is comprised of 12 focal lengths, from 16mm to 135mm while a unique focusing mechanism also expands the focus scale in the most critical range.

Jamie Hutchison, Company Director of Picture Canning, said: "We are very excited to now be stocking the full set of Leica Summilux-C Primes. These lenses are very rare with no more than a handful available in the UK. We're constantly updating our equipment stock to make sure our clients have access to the best possible kit. Knowing that we are now able to provide them with one of the most in-demand lens sets in the country is a fantastic feeling."

Picture Canning has already seen a huge demand for the lenses, from a range of productions.

For more details, or to enquire about hiring the set, contact Picture Canning on 0207 998 0490 (London) or 0191 265 0061 (Newcastle). Alternatively you can email bookings@picturecanning.co.uk.
