  • Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm Zoom Lens (PL, Feet)

    Covering sensor sizes up to 35mm 4-perf, the Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm Zoom Lens (PL, Feet) features a 2x squeeze, and a 2.7x zoom ratio. This lightweight, compact, mid-range lens is one of several zoom options in the Optimo Anamorphic series, each producing the signature organic Angenieux look, and blending with other Angenieux glass.

    This PL-mount lens can be quickly switched by a technician to an optional Canon EF or Panavision mount, and is compatible with the ASU servo control. Features include a close focus distance of 25", very low distortion throughout the focal length range, and rugged construction suitable for a wide temperature range.

    The focus ring of the Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm features 320° of rotation, providing room for over 50 precise witness marks. Marked in feet, the focus scale can be interchanged with marks in meters. An internal focus design means the lens length stays constant as the focus is changed, displaying no signs of breathing during focus pulls. The lens features a 114mm front outside diameter, fitting many standard production matte boxes. This zoom lens incorporates industry standard 0.8-MOD gears for interfacing with the optional ASU servo unit, zoom motors, follow focus units, or wireless F/I/Z systems.

    • 2x anamorphic squeeze with coverage up to 35mm 4-perf scope (28.8mm diagonal)
    • Fast aperture of T4 across entire focal length range
    • Minimal distortion with no breathing as you focus
    • Compact, lightweight, and rugged design
    • Image quality extends across the entire T4-T22 aperture range

    • 320° of focus rotation with over 50 focus marks calibrated in feet
    • Focus scale is interchangeable from feet to meters
    • Withstands wide temperature range of -4 to 104°F (-20 to 40°C)
    • Standard PL mount lens; optional Panavision (PV), or Canon EF mounts available separately
  • Servo Unit - ASU

    The Angenieux Servo Unit - ASU provides ENG-style focus, iris, and zoom servo-control for your Angenieux lightweight zoom lens. The ASU bolts directly onto the lens, and has a minimum of cables for a fast setup time.

    The ASU is compatible with select wired and wireless lens control systems, and generates Cooke /i metadata. Use the ASU with an optional PL lens mount /i Cooke interface to record the metadata to your camera. Depending on your remote control configuration, the ASU's focus, iris, and zoom motors can be turned off independently to avoid unintended adjustments.

    • Can be used to control focus, iris, and zoom
    • Handgrip-style servo control motor attaches directly to Angenieux zooms
    • Offers wired/wireless remote FIZ control with select devices
    • Generates lens metadata in Cooke /i format
    • Integrates with motion control systems, monitors, etc. via /i output port
    • Use with optional lens mount to record metadata to camera
    • Independently shut off focus, iris, and zoom motors depending on your remote setup
