Anamorphic lenses are usually big, heavy and slower than other spherical lenses, but once again Arri introduced something that changes it all: the brand new Master Anamorphic set T.1.9 is, as usual for products coming from the collaboration between Arri and Carl Zeiss, a fast, reliable and technically perfect tool for your productions. If you do want the anamorphic look without giving up lens speed, reliability and fast on set workflow the Arri Zeiss Master Anamorphic T 1.9 are exactly what you are searching for.
If we had to find a flaw of the Cooke Anamorphic lenses, it would probably be that they are flawless, or at least they almost entirely lack of some of those flaws that lately have made vintage anamorphic lenses so popular among cinematographers and directors. But make no mistake, these lenses are literally a prodige of the optical technique and are a part of any director of photography's dream that mixes perfectly the anamorphic look with the unmistakable Cooke style. Available at Camaleon Rental!
With a name that is already a guarantee of quality itself, the Hawk Anamorphic lenses have been and keep being one of the most appreciated glasses of the film industry, when it comes to anamorphic format. With their different series, they offer a really versatile tool, allowing cinematographers to choose between the C-Series, V-Series and V-Lite. If you are on the look of the legendary anamorphic lenses by Vantage give us a call, at Camaleon Rental we've got what you need!
If you think that to shoot anamorphic means slow, heavy lenses with weird front diameter, the Kowa Promiser Anamorphic will surprise you: with a very acceptable weight, maximum aperture between T 2.2 and 3.4 and a standard front diameter of 80mm thanks to a wonderful rehousing, those lenses are the perfect choice for those who want the anamorphic look with its characteristic flares and optical aberrations that made famous this kind of lenses, without making the camera configuration heavy and difficult to move. Available at Camaleón Rental!
Even though compared to their spherical versions they are not very much known, the Angenieux anamorphic zooms are the lightest and most compact anamorphic variable primes ever made. And aside of that, due to their outstanding optical quality, they perfectly blend not only with others Angenieux lenses, but with most of the spherical and anamorphic glasses available on the market. Plus, their innovative design allows rapidly changing the mount from PL to PV and switch the focus scales from feet to meters.
For those who love vintage anamorphic glass, the Arri Ultrascope Anamorphic are a chance you really can't miss. Designed by Jan Jacobsen who worked at Arri in the 50s as an answer to the CinemaScope format developed then by 20th Century Fox, they were used in the shooting of iconic movies such as The Robe or 20000 Leagues Under the Sea. Even compared to modern anamorphics, these lenses are very fast and offer an incredibly wide focal range. And even if, as usual when speaking about anamorphic lenses, fro a strictly technical point of view they give their best at an aperture between T 4.5 and 5.6, when wide open they deliver a fantastic bokeh and add a very special texture to the footage.
