NAB 2018: SLR Magic MicroPrime CINE Lenses


The SLR Magic booth was lined with cinema lenses, running the gamut from E-mount to PL mount and spherical to anamorphic. New at this show, however, are more options for E-mount cameras by way of the MicroPrime CINE series of lenses. Optically speaking, these lenses feature the familiar optics of their currently available Cine lens line, but housed in a cinema-grade metal exterior with matching dimensions and focus/iris gear positioning, with a lens ring marked in T-stops instead of F-stops.

25mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm focal lengths will be available in fast T1.5, T1.3, T1.2, and T1.5 speeds, respectively. All the lenses will also feature the same 82mm filter threading for mounting ND filters or other standard screw-on filters without the need of a matte box, excellent for run-and-gun filmmaking.

Also new at SLR Magic's booth is an addition to its HyperPrime APO CINE lenses. The new 32mm focal length fits right between the current 24mm and 50mm offerings, maintaining the high standard of image quality and construction expected from the HyperPrime APO CINE line.
