All of the anamorphic lens characteristics demanded by filmmakers today with the Cooke Look® and oval bokeh. That’s the Cooke Anamorphic /i Look. Images beautifully rendered for film and especially suited for use with digital cameras. The Anamorphic /i lens correct aberrations exceptionally well over the entire image area – astigmatism, lateral and longitudinal colour – that will render shape, form and soul to your images.
While the “look” is crucial, precision engineering and seamless integration with other equipment is equally important. The Anamorphic /i, prime lenses in ten focal lengths are colour matched to our S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i lenses.
Our Anamorphic /i Prime lenses are supplied with /i Technology that collect detailed lens data for production, VFX and post-production teams and are designed for all PL mounted professional motion picture film and electronic cameras. The /i Technology provides cinematographers and camera operators with vital information on lens setting, focusing distance, aperture and depth-of-field, hyperfocal distance, serial number, owner data, lens type and focal length in both metric and footage measurements, as well as inertial tracking data, shading and distortion data. For zoom lenses, the zoom position is displayed.
Maximum Format Cover
33.54mm Diameter (New Epic S35mm Format)
Two opposing focus scales – metric and footage. Scales marked from infinity to MOD.
Focus Drive Gear
140 teeth 0.8 metric module x 6.0mm wide x 102mm from the image plane.
Two opposing linear T scales – whole and third stops marked.
Iris Drive Gear
134 teeth 0.8 metric module x 4.0mm wide x 82mm from image plane.
The optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration.
Accessible via cable connector near the lens mount and contacts in mount that sync with /i compatible cameras and accessories.
All Cooke Anamorphic/i prime lenses are colour balanced to a specification within parameters approved by Kodak and are colour-matched and compatible with Cooke 5/i, Cooke S4/i, miniS4/i, and CXX 15-40 mm T2 S4/i Zoom lenses.
All Cooke Anamorphic/i primes have a true T2.3 aperture and cover Super 35mm format except the 65mm MACRO which has a T2.6 aperture.
Every index mark is labeled. More detailed markings allow for more detailed focus control.
Our Academy Award® winning cam-style focus movement coupled with the added benefit of a large lens barrel diameter, has allowed for an increased number of focus markings, particularly at close focus. Spherical aberration has been controlled throughout the range of focal lengths to eliminate compensation of changes in back focus with aperture. A four-point contact bearing provides a smooth positive backlash-free movement.
Large, clear numerals on both sides of the focus barrel benefit the focus puller when shooting under difficult lighting conditions. Plus the the Entrance Pupil position is engraved on the lens.
Cooke Hardened PL Mount with /i Technology contacts.
All Cooke Anamorphic/i lenses have a common, fixed front diameter of 110mm, except for the 25, 65 MACRO and 300mm focal lengths and the Anamorphic/i zoom lenses, which are 136mm. All have an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8.
A scratch resistant PTFE hard anodised finish is provided on all Cooke lenses, providing a durable, hard-wearing surface to meet the most demanding environmental conditions.
An eleven-leaf linear module iris assembly is fitted into Cooke Anamorphic/i primes with an aperture range of T2.3 to T22; T2.6 to T22 on the 65mm MACRO, T2.8 to T22 on the 180mm, and T3.5 to T22 on the 300mm.
The lenses are designed for all shooting applications, including handheld and Steadicam, providing comfortable balance ratio with the latest compact cameras.
