EXPRESS YOUR VISION FOR THE SILVER SCREEN
Five years ago (2016), Atlas Lens Co. started on the path to make cinematography more interesting, more personal, and more rewarding. Our goal was to break new ground for cinematography through anamorphic lenses — building the tools we wanted to use, but couldn’t attain.
“OUR GOAL WAS TO BREAK NEW GROUND — BUILDING THE TOOLS WE WANTED TO USE BUT COULDN’T ATTAIN.”
As we developed greater capabilities, we built up a special reserve of selected optics, destined for unique coatings and precision augmented air spacings. Building a cache of special optics was a slow and dedicated process. This allowed us to dig deeper into how we might create a new, expressive and dynamic style of lenses that pay tribute to the rich history of cinema.
The Silver Edition lenses maintain the modern, mechanically reliable performance that sets the Orion Series apart from vintage anamorphic lenses, all while celebrating aspects of the silver screen cinema era. Precision-adjusted air space tunings paired with bold Silver Edition coatings result in expressive, reactive, yet chromatically refined anamorphic flares unlike any lens before.
