Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, is pleased to announce that it is introducing multiple mounts for its acclaimed miniS4/i lenses, enabling more cameras and productions to benefit from the ‘Cooke Look®.’ The new mounts, including Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E and Micro 4/3, will be available to view at IBC 2016 on Stand 12.D10 and will ship from October 2016.
A single mount will fit every focal length lens in the miniS4/i series. For existing miniS4/ilenses, users can simply unbolt the PL mount that comes as standard, bolt on the replacement mount, and shim as required. The mounts can be used on any miniS4/i lens, regardless of delivery date. For new miniS4/i deliveries, starting from October 2016, the lenses will be available with the mount of choice from the factory. The mounts are designed for the MIRRORless cameras.
Les Zellan, Chairman, and Owner, Cooke Optics, said, “The miniS4/i lenses are steadily gaining popularity for many genres of production since they have all the coveted attributes of Cooke prime lenses in a smaller, lighter and more affordable form. With the introduction of these interchangeable mounts, we can now bring the Cooke Look to many more cameras and productions, giving, even more choice to directors of photography.”
miniS4/i lenses were recently used to shoot the popular UK TV drama Midsomer Murders and the Spanish feature film El Pregon.
Cooke will also show the new 35-140mm Anamorphic/i zoom lens at IBC 2016, alongside a variety of Anamorphic/i, 5/i, S4/i and miniS4/i lenses.
