Cooke Optics To Unveil Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus Lens

News Image
Cooke Optics is to present not only a standard Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus lens, but also - for the first time anywhere – an Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus SF coated version at the BSC Expo 2019 taking place at Battersea Evolution, London on 1-2 February 2019.

The new Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus range has been designed to meet the growing appetite for large format production, while offering the popular anamorphic characteristics including flare and oval bokeh. When the SF 'Special Flair' coating is applied, it enables an exaggerated flare that gives yet more choice to cinematographers.

Cooke will also present /i3 (/i Cubed), the latest version of its /i Technology metadata system that provides detailed lens data to VFX and post-production teams. /i3 firmware now provides distortion mapping - not just a theoretical measurement of all lenses of a particular focal length, but of the specific lens in use. Sony is currently working to integrate /i3 into the Sony Venice large format camera.

The stand will also feature the Panchro/i Classic 65mm Macro lens – a 2-1 Macro – which also covers full frame, along with the newly designed 21mm and 135mm designed to cover the S/35 image area. In addition Cooke lenses will be present on a number of camera manufacturer and reseller stands at the show. The two 50mm lenses will be demonstrated on Stand 338 at BSC Expo, taking place at Battersea Evolution, London on 1-2 February 2019.
