Cooke Panchro/i overview

  • 1Description

The Cooke 18mm Panchro/i Classic Prime Lens combines the warm look of a vintage Cooke Speed Panchro with the convenience of the i/Technology lens data capture system. This modern redesign works with both digital cinema and film cameras, features focus scales marked in meters, and covers image formats up to Super 35. One of several focal lengths available, the 18mm prime incorporates a nine-blade iris for cinematic bokeh. For optimal performance, aberration, flare, and distortion-correction extends over the entire image area and throughout the 18mm's T2.2-22 aperture range. The Panchro/i Classic Primes are color-matched with Cooke's S4/i, 5/i, mini S4/i, and Anamorphic/i lenses.

Each Panchro/i Classic Prime lens sports both a hardened PL mount and a cable connection that use Cooke's /i Technology to transmit lens data including focal length, aperture, focus, and depth-of-field to compatible cameras.

The 18mm Panchro/i Classic Prime Lens features a 4.6" minimum focus distance, focus marks in meters, a relatively light weight of 3.5 pounds, and a compact length of 3.4". This 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.
