At next month’s BSC Expo 2019, Cooke Optics will be presenting its Panchro/i Classic and Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus lens.
Designed for large-format production, the new Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus features anamorphic characteristics, including flare and oval bokeh. For an exaggerated flare, the range is also available with the SF “Special Flair” coating. The Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus set, which features a T2.3 stop, will offer 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm and 180mm lenses.
The image circle covers a full 24×36 still-sized sensor, with a 1.8 squeeze. According to Cooke Optics, the 1.8 de-squeeze is designed to cover the full height of the sensor, giving 90% coverage of the sensor when de-squeezed at the 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Like all Cooke lenses, the Anamorphic/i Full Frame Plus range includes /i Technology that collects detailed lens data for VFX and post-production teams.
For Panchro/i Classic, the prime lenses offer the vintage look of the likes of Speed Panchros, but with the benefit of modern housing, mounts and glass. The 65mm Macro lens — a 2:1 Macro which also covers full frame — will be on display at booth 338, alongside the newly designed 21mm and 135mm lenses that cover the S/35 image area.
BSC Expo 2019 will take place on February 1 and 2 at Battersea Evolution, Battersea, London, UK.
