A full range of high-end spherical camera lenses to meet all production needs
Evolution in digital cameras and camera stabilizing technology has enabled creative camera movements that were not possible before. Increasing production efficiency yet retaining cinematic image quality, Angenieux compact zooms are always on the top of the list when precision, quality, and agility are demanded. Angenieux lightweight Optimo spherical zooms lens cover a wide range from 15mm to 120mm. For well over half a century, Angenieux long range zooms have been an indispensable part of the camera package. Starting off with the 10x zoom series in the early 1960s, our long range zooms have evolved over the years by increasing zoom range, improving imaging characteristics, enhancing mechanical stability, and covering larger film & digital imaging formats. Our long camera lens family has been and will remain as the industry reference where high zoom magnification range is required.
Optimo Anamorphic Lenses : Elevating anamorphic production to a new level.
The creative virtues of anamorphic lenses have become even more important in the digital age, where cinematographers are seeking a distinctive look to enrich every project. The Angénieux anamorphic zoom lenses add a dimensional character to the image with the traditional 2x squeeze, with controlled background and an aesthetically dimensional foreground, yet minimizing breathing and distortion by adopting a modern optical design. Angénieux anamorphic lenses also bring what many refer to as a “creamy and organic look”. This specific cinematic look, color rendering, contrast and resolution that Angénieux zooms are known for, is ideal for the work with digital cameras.
