An interview from the 2022 Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles with Dan Kanes of Atlas Lens Co. Headquartered in Glendale, CA, Atlas 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 bring their visions to life.
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.
The Orion 25mm T2 is the fast, wide-angle anamorphic lens you’ve been looking for - whether you are adding it to your existing set of Orion Series lenses, or just in need of the fastest, close focus capable 25mm 2x Anamorphic lens in the world.

The Atlas LF Expander allows Orion Series lenses to provide 36mm x 24mm full-frame coverage. The 1.4x expansion offers a new creative freedom with a stylistic falloff when compared to the 1.6x LF Extender. Excellent with ARRI LF, Sony VENICE, RED V-Raptor and other full-frame, Vistavision, and large-format camera sensors.

Atlas includes a handy check gauge with each expander to help you ensure the rear element/cone of the lens will not interfere with the expander optics.
