Our moving image department is rapidly expanding and so to keep up with demand we have recently added the Canon CN-E's to our range of Cine Primes.
The kit includes a range of 6 lenses including:
CN-E14mm T3.1 L F – An ultra-wide-angle fixed length lens with spectacular 4K image quality and great creative control.
CN-E24mm T1.5 L F - An ultra-wide angle fixed focal length lens with spectacular 4K image quality and great creative control.
CN-E35mm T1.5 L F - A wide-angle lens with spectacular 4k image quality and a compact EF mount body.
CN-E50mm T1.3 L F - A lightweight, compact, prime lens designed for EF mounts with spectacular 4k image quality.
CN-E85mm T1.3 L F - A short telephoto prime lens with 4k image quality and a natural angle of view and perspective.
CN-E135mm T2.2 L F - A compact, EF mount telephoto lens, with 4K image quality and creative control over depth of field.
Based on Canon's popular L series stills lenses (same optics but with uniform coatings) they have many advantages over using stills lenses when shooting moving image:
- Cine Housed – better build quality to higher tolerances
- No focus by wire as on the 85mm L lens
- Hard Stops
- 300 Degree focus throw - great for hitting focus with a follow focus.
- 11 blade iris - giving smooth round bokeh
- Uniform 114mm front
- Full Frame 35mm coverage (C700) or great with S35 sensors like the C300mk2
- Virtually no breathing - unlike the L series
- 4K and above optical performance
- Lens Metadata
- Uniform Gears - So no adjusting follow focus with lens changes
These lenses are fast with T-Stops of 1.3 & 1.5 for the 4 middle lenses and feature a large diameter aspheric lens and anomalous dispersion glass, working to deliver high contrast and sharp imaging from the centre of the image to the outer edges. This helps bring out the high quality of 4K cinema images.
The lenses produce warm colour tones that help to softly capture people's facial expressions and enable better depiction of textures captured through the lens
All in all, this is a great set of lenses for using with Canon DSLR's, C300mk2, Sony FS5M2, Sony FS7M2, Sony A7SM2 or many other cameras compatible with the EF mount.
