It’s not just cameras that we feature at our NAB booth – we also like to feature interesting new optics, such as Schneider’s newest prime lenses. For starters, the Cine-Xenar III primes are specifically designed for digital cinema and feature a choice of mounts (PL or EF), an image circle of 31.5mm, 18-blade iris, and easily interchangeable, calibrated focus scales. Additionally, all Cine-Xenar IIIs are color matched, with focus and iris gears in the same position, making switching lenses even easier.
But that’s not all. Schneider also has the new Xenon FF primes, which are full-frame (24x36mm) lenses designed to work well with both HDSLR and Super-35 cameras. They feature 14-blade irises, along with a choice of Canon EF, Nikon F and PL mounts, with focal lengths of 35mm, 50mm and 70mm to start.
