Last week, as a long-term partner with cooke optics and jcinecast, KO Film Rental got the first Cooke Anamorphic SF 40mm lens for a test and made a sample show reel for the lens.
Leicester, UK – March 11, 2016 – Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, is to give cinematographers yet more choice in the looks they can achieve, with a specially manufactured set of anamorphic lenses called Anamorphic/i SF. The new lens range, which is complementary to the acclaimed Anamorphic/i series, offers a coating that gives cinematographers even more options for anamorphic character.
“The enthusiasm for anamorphic lenses shows no sign of abating, but people sometimes want to take that special look still further,” says Les Zellan, Chairman and Owner, Cooke Optics. “We’ve been playing with coatings to provide even more of the ‘anamorphic flair’ that people like, while maintaining the Cooke Look. We see the Anamorphic/i SF set as an addition to the cinematographer’s arsenal, so they have the option of creating classic anamorphic shapes or kicking the flares, bokeh and other aberrations up a notch.”
