The Schneider 60mm f/5.6 Apo-Digitar is an ultra high quality standard focal length lens designed to maximize the capabilities of adjustable cameras with larger image digital backs such as Phase One, Leaf and Hasselblad that have sensor sizes up to 53.7 x 40.3mm. The electronic shutter offers numerous advantages over standard analog mechanical shutters. Most importantly, it's more precise, offering shutter speeds in finer increments with unmatched repeatability.
It also offers remote control features not possible with traditional shutters. The 60mm f/5.6 Apo-Digitar SES is expressly designed for digital imaging and discerning photographers who wish to use its large 120mm image circle to correct perspective and avoid image degradation in post-production.
Eight element symmetrical apochromatic construction provides optimal performance. The 60mm f/5.6 Apo-Digitar SES reaches its full coverage of 102°/110mm, as well as its maximum resolution at f/8. Very high resolution is achieved even at the maximum iris of f/5.6.
Note: Mounts on a Copal #0 lens board.
The Schneider electronic shutter offers a number advantages over the mechanical shutters previously used in analog photography. First, it is more precise. Second, it has a remote control feature via the connected computer. Third, it provides a much wider setting range and new functions for the control of the depth of field and for extremely long exposure times.
Excellent General Use Choice
The recommended distance ranges from infinity up to an image scale of 1:3. Sharpness is still very good even at higher scales. The meticulous flattening of the field curvature of the 60 mm f/5.6 Apo-Digitar is an ideal mate for the perfectly planar sensor surface.
In photography, chromatic aberration produces soft overall images, and color fringing at high-contrast edges, like an edge between black and white. Apochromatic lenses are designed to bring three wavelengths (typically red, green, and blue) into focus in the same plane. The result is superior color accuracy and apparent sharpness.
