The Angenieux 25-250 has been a staple of the movie industry since it’s introduction in 1962. Now Angenieux has updated their original design and optimized it for digital cinema cameras. The new 25-250 DP Optimo features a telecentric design that reduces color fringing and focus breathing; additionally, it projects a 30.4mm image circle, easily covering a Super35-sized sensor. The 25-250 DP comes with a standard PL mount, but can be mounted in Panavison, Nikon, or Canon EF, making it adaptable to just about any of today’s digital cinema cameras. Other key features include a Cooke i/ technology interface for lens metadata, an integrated filter holder for screw-in filters, an integrated net holder, and an easily interchangeable focus ring allowing for easy switching from feet to meters.
With a design that is optimized for serviceability and utilizes proven optics, the new 25-250 DP promises to be a great addition to Angenieux’s already impressive product line. For more information on the lens and to read the full press release, visit Angenieux’s website.
