An interview from the 2018 Cine Gear Expo at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles with Les Zellan of Cooke Optics. Cooke manufactures a wide range of lenses suitable for multiple film applications. All lenses are colour matched so you can interchange with confidence. The lenses are easily maintained, accurate, and reliable. By far the majority of Cooke lenses ever manufactured are still in everyday use. In this interview Les talks with us about their new focal lengths for S7/i Full Frame Plus and Panchro/i Classic Lenses.

Cooke Optics has announced the next focal lengths that will be available for its newest lens ranges. The S7/i purpose-built full frame lens range will include a 16mm, 21mm, 27mm and 65mm, while the Panchro/i Classic will benefit from a 21mm, 27mm, 65mm Macro and 135mm. The Panchro/i Classic 135mm is the first to be completed and will be available for demonstration on Booth C8635 at NAB 2018. The remaining focal lengths, which are consistent with Cooke’s other lens ranges, will all be available by the end of the year.

The S7/i Full Frame Plus lens range is designed from the ground up to cover the emergent full frame cinema camera sensors up to the full sensor area (46.31mm image circle) of the RED Weapon 8K. It is also an ideal partner for the acclaimed Sony VENICE full frame digital motion picture camera system and the new ARRI ALEXA LF large format camera system. All three full frame cameras will feature on the Cooke booth mounted with S7/i lenses to allow cinematographers to test this emerging format.
