The Rodenstock 28mm f/4.5 HR Digaron-S Lens is a wide angle large format lens specifically designed for use with digital backs, which require a smaller image circle with extreme resolution, color correction, and maximum performance at a large aperture. This lens is recommended for use with backs having a 33 x 44mm maximum image area, and upon such a back it would provide a view similar to that of a 22mm lens upon a 35mm format camera. This HR Digaron-S is delivered in a standard type Copal #0 shutter.

In many cases, digital photography is superior to conventional photography if the desired end product is a printed image. To achieve this ideal, however, a much higher demand is made upon the image reproduction quality of the lens. This is because of a digital image chip's smaller area, which means finer details in a scene are squeezed into a smaller image recording area, as well as their sensitivity to color fringes.

But Rodenstock's digitally-specific lenses such as this HR Digaron-S provide image quality which allows the maximum capacity of a digital back to be realized. The lens utilizes every technological possibility to get as close as possible to the absolute limits of diffraction- determined resolution, even accounting for the properties and thickness of a CCD's protective glass. With the HR Digaron-S, you can use digital backs with a pixel pitch as small as 5µ.
