Founded in 2016 by lead designer Forrest Schultz and cinematographer Dan Kanes, their vision is to build anamorphic lenses that are optically pleasing, mechanically robust, and accessible to modern cinematographers worldwide.
Headquartered in Glendale, CA, Atlas Lens Co. designs and manufactures affordable, high-performance cinema tools that deliver vintage anamorphic aesthetics with the conveniences of modern mechanical design. Their lenses are designed to empower innovative image-makers to create work that’s more interesting, more personal, and more rewarding.
The Atlas 21mm offers the widest horizontal field of view of any Cinemascope format 35mm motion picture camera lens, and is optimized for use on both film and digital sensors. The Orion 21mm represents a previously unattainable wide-angle anamorphic field of view using a front anamorphic system, with a pleasing level of distortion, in a lightweight and compact form factor that will not encumber cinematographers and operators.
