An interview from the 2023 IBC Show in Amsterdam with Brian Linhoff at the SIGMA Stand. SIGMA is a manufacturing company that produces and distributes digital cameras, interchangeable lenses and photographic accessories. Since our foundation in 1961, we have exclusively produced photography- and video-related products.
FF High Speed Prime Line has been offering the highest resolving power in its class, that is compatible with 8K shooting with large format sensors, while achieving outstanding compact design. Based on this product line, the FF Classic Prime Line incorporates more non-coated optical elements to achieve unrivaled expression. It retains the high resolution capability that SIGMA CINE LENS is well known for, and offers a unique combination of low contrast and artistic flare/ghost in the image. As with all other lenses from the FF High Speed Prime Line, it creates beautiful bokeh effects to improve creativity.
FF Classic Prime Line has implemented newly developed coatings on the glass elements and offers consistent T value across the lineup (14mm and 135mm at T3.2 and the rest of the lenses at T2.5). This will greatly contribute to the effective workflow in postproduction. Furthermore, it is compatible with the communication protocol of Cooke “/i Technology”, thus an ideal tool for shooting and editing with the latest technology, such as VFX. A special coating is implemented on the front and rear elements so that the lens durability is ensured as with all other cine lenses from SIGMA.
The 65mm T1.5 FF HS and 65mm T2.5 FF Classic are the newest additions to their respective lines. Exclusively built for cinema, their entry sums up to 11 lenses across each product line and extreme versatility for cinematographers. With an image circle of 43.3mm, they cover the latest full-frame and Super 35 sensors. Robust metal housings ensure durability through the intensity of production and variable environments. Coming in at T1.5 for the FF High Speed, the fast aperture allows for versatility in situations where lighting is constantly changing or when no lighting equipment is available.
