Today I met with Jean-Marc Bouchut to get the rundown on Angenieux’s new offerings showing at NAB 2017. Included is the compact and lightweight Optimo Style 48-130, available this fall, with a 44mm diameter image circle, T3 constant maximum aperture, and 3’1” close focus.
You’ll also hear more about Angenieux’s convertible rear anamorphic 10x zoom, the Optimo Anamorphic 44-440 A2S T4.5, which features a convertible rear group that can be swapped to a spherical element, turning the lens into a 25-250 T3.5. Angenieux has also developed a specially coated rear element for this lens that will provoke the characteristic “blue line” flare associated with classic anamorphic lenses of the ’70s and ’80s. Check out the video for more info on these lenses and accessories.No Comments
