The Cooke Anamorphic/i  2x Special Flair Prime Lens Key Features:

  • Anamorphic Flair: The Anamorphic/i SF primes offer enhanced flares, bokeh, and other aberrations, adding a distinct anamorphic character to the visuals. They are designed to complement standard Anamorphic/i lenses and provide a unique artistic flair.
  • Compatibility: These lenses are designed for digital cinema and film cameras. They provide a 2x squeeze, covering image formats up to Super 35, allowing for a cinematic widescreen aspect ratio.
  • Optical Performance: The Anamorphic/i SF primes deliver exceptional optical performance, controlling aberrations, flare, and distortion across the entire image area. The aperture range of T2.3 to T22 allows for precise depth-of-field control and shooting in various lighting conditions.
  • Color-Matched with Cooke Primes: The Anamorphic/i SF primes are color-matched with other Cooke lens series, including Anamorphic/i, S4/i, 5/i, and mini S4/i. This ensures visual consistency and seamless integration when using multiple Cooke lenses during production.
  • Form Factor: These lenses are relatively lightweight and compact, making them practical for handheld or gimbal-based shooting setups.
  • PL Mount with /i Technology: The lenses are equipped with a hardened PL mount and utilize Cooke’s /i Technology. This allows for transferring lens data, including focal length, aperture, focus, and depth-of-field, to compatible cameras, streamlining post-production workflows.
  • Oval Bokeh: The lenses feature an 11-blade iris that produces a 2:1 oval-shaped bokeh in out-of-focus areas, contributing to a unique and visually appealing aesthetic.
  • Focus and Aperture Control: The focus barrel provides a 300° rotation, allowing precise and smooth focus adjustments. The aperture scale has a 90° rotation, making aperture control straightforward and accurate.
