(Leicester, UK--December 13, 2016) At BSC Expo 2017, Cooke Optics
, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, will present its Anamorphic/i and Anamorphic/i SF lenses that give cinematographers more choice in the looks they can achieve. The Anamorphic/i lenses offer a classic anamorphic look, while the Anamorphic/i SF ‘Special Flair’ range features a coating that kicks up the flares, bokeh and other aberrations to provide another level of anamorphic character.
“As the first major show of the year, BSC Expo is a must-attend event to share our latest lens developments with our esteemed customers and friends,” said Les Zellan, Chairman and Owner, Cooke Optics. “The trend for anamorphic shooting continues as a way to bring character to sterile digital images. TheAnamorphic/i SF range complements the classic Anamorphic/i set, bringing something new and exciting to the cinematographer’s arsenal. We’re excited to present both ranges at BSC Expo 2017.”
The Cooke team will also bring a variety of 5/i, S4/i and miniS4/i lenses to the show. Recent TV projects shot with Cooke lenses include the award-winning Fleabag
