This 50mm Anamorphic/i Prime Lens features the classic, natural yet sharp "Cooke look" in an anamorphic format. One of Cooke's extensive Anamorphic/i series, the 50mm prime incorporates an 11-blade iris for cinematic-looking, 2:1 oval bokeh. Designed for use with both digital cinema and film cameras, the Cooke Anamorphic/i primes provide a 2x squeeze, and cover image formats up to Super 35. For maximum optical performance, aberration, flare, and distortion correction extends over the entire image area, and throughout the 50mm's T2.3-22 aperture range. The Anamorphic/i primes are color-matched with Cooke's S4/i, 5/i, and mini S4/i series of prime lenses.
Each Anamorphic/i prime sports both a hardened PL mount and a cable connection that use Cooke's /i Technology to transmit lens data to compatible cameras. Lens setting data including focal length, aperture, focus, and depth-of-field, are provided in both feet and metric measurements.
The 50mm Anamorphic/i Prime Lens features a 22" minimum focus distance, focus marks in feet and meters, a relatively light weight of 7.9 pounds, and a compact length of 7.7". The lens is constructed with 0.8-mod geared focus and iris rings for use with follow focus, zoom control, and wireless F/I/Z systems. A large lens barrel, an increased number of focus marks, and Cooke's cam-style focus movement enable precise focus pulls. Focus marks are clearly visible and are engraved on the lens barrel in both feet and meters.
