The 50mm Master Anamorphic Prime Lens is one of a set from ARRI/Zeiss featuring low distortion and a fast T1.9 aperture for achieving shallow depth of field. This anamorphic prime offers the skin tones and color rendition for which Zeiss is noted, and color-matches other ARRI/Zeiss primes and ARRI/Fujinon zoom lenses. Its 15-blade iris produces cinematic-looking, oval bokeh with distinct focus fall-off. There is minimal breathing when focusing and no "fat face/anamorphic mumps" effect on your talent. With there being no visible drop-off at the corner of your images, the full 2.39-format image is usable.
Designed from scratch for use with digital cinema cameras, the ARRI/Zeiss Master Anamorphic primes will provide optimal image quality when used with an ARRI ALEXA 4:3-format camera. They will work with film cameras as well. Color fringing and shading in image corners is reduced thanks to the near telecentric design of these multi-coated lenses.
This anamorphic lens provides a 2.39:1 aspect ratio to your image when used with a Super-35 sensor. The 50mm Master Anamorphic Prime Lens features a 30" minimum focus distance, focus marks in feet, a relatively light weight of 5.7 pounds, and a compact length of 7.2". The lens is constructed with geared focus and iris rings for use with follow focus, zoom control, and F/I/Z wireless systems. The PL LDS mount on the 50mm Master Anamorphic Prime Lens will transfer lens data to compatible cameras.
