Master Anamorphic Lenses

  • Overview
  • Technical Data

A range of seven high-performance prime lenses, the ARRI Master Anamorphic series represents a significant step forward in the technology and practicality of anamorphic cinematography for 35 format digital and film cameras.

For the first time, a perfect combination of compact size, minimal weight, very high speed and exceptional optical design with minimal distortion has been achieved in a set of anamorphics. With beautiful out-of-focus backgrounds and a smooth, cinematic look, the Master Anamorphic lenses are as fast and easy to use on set as other modern cine lenses.

At a glance

  • Low distortion for uncompromised cinemascope
  • Cinematic bokeh with high contrast and nice focus fall-off
  • Beautiful skin tones and precise color rendition
  • Characteristic oval out-of-focus highlights
