The new Cooke S8/i FF
Cooke has just announced the release of its new S8/ i range. The range consists of 16 all-spherical lenses optimised for full frame cinema cameras. The lenses are hand crafted to the exceptional quality and reliability one expects from Cooke Optics.
7 of the 16 lenses are available to order from March 16th 2022 with the remaining 9 becoming available in autumn 2022. The first 7 lenses will consist of the following focal lengths: 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm with 18mm, 21mm, 27mm, 35mm, 65mm, 85mm (Macro), 180mm, 250mm and 350mm to be available later in the year.
The new S8/ i FF features premium all -spherical lenses, which produce a uniquely organic, cinematic quality, which is characterised by smooth, spherical bokeh and minimal colour fringing. Enabling you to create sensitive and emotive images with a high degree of dimensionality.
With a maximum aperture of T1.4 across the focal range, the new S8/ i FF lenses are amongst the very fastest produced for larger than Full Frame capture. They also offer greater control over depth of field and flare characteristics, whilst still providing excellent low light performance without graining.
Compact and light, agile and easy to use, the new S8/i FF lenses have been created for a wide variety of situations and today’s compact cameras. Being lighter, however, has not compromised strength, durability, or their exceptional image quality.
Designed from the ground up to incorporate our very latest intelligent /i technology, which includes: • /i data focus and iris position • /i motion inertial data • /i maps factory calibrated shading and distortion data S8 also benefit from a high degree of modularity, which increases reliability and reduces servicing time. For example, the /i Technology board and placement.
