Compact Prime Lenses / New PL Mount Lenses from Carl Zeiss Make Maximum Image Quality in the Field of Movies Affordable
Carl Zeiss presents Compact Prime lenses at IBC in Amsterdam(PresseBox) ( Oberkochen, )
As with the Ultra Prime and Master Prime lines, the housing of the Compact Prime lenses is manufactured with absolute precision and tailored to the demands of professional cinematography. The focusing scale is individually calibrated for each lens. With the standard focal lengths, the Compact Prime lenses have the same dimen- sions, the focus and aperture ring are always positioned identically. If the lens is changed, the compendium, follow focus, and lens motors thus remain in the same position. This allows movie- makers to work quickly and effectively. The compact, lightweight design makes lenses in this line flexible companions for handheld and steadicam recordings.
ZEISS lenses are known for maximum optical performance. Movies filmed with these cameras- classics such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy- feature high contrast with minimal distortion even with wide-angle shots. As with all established ZEISS cine lenses, the new Compact Prime lenses feature standardized color characteristics and the Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating. Furthermore, the Compact Primes possess very good stray light reduction. The lenses are equipped with a new aperture featuring 14 rounded shutter blades. This results in a bokeh effect which very harmoniously displays blurred light sources in the background.
