The Ultra Prime lenses are lightweight standard speed lenses that are a perfect optical match to the high speed Master Prime lenses. They have been developed in a cooperation of ARRI and Carl Zeiss.
One of the most important aspects of a successful production is the competence and diversity of your team. Whether you’re shooting a commercial where exquisite color rendition and high contrast is important, or a tense, dramatic sequence in low light situations for a feature film, Compact Prime lenses offer you the performance you need to get the scene right. With a wide range of focal lengths, full-frame coverage, fantastic image quality, great flare suppression and precise focusing through the large rotation angle, Compact Prime lenses give you a flexible set of tools to make your film shine. With its long history in both photo and cine lenses, ZEISS is dedicated to supporting filmmakers and allowing you to benefit from the highest possible image quality in any situation.
The four lenses in the ARRI/FUJINON Alura Zoom range offer a complete imaging solution to productions wishing to benefit from the speed and flexibility of working with zooms. Suitable for both film and digital cameras, all four of the lenses are color matched not just to each other, but also to ARRI prime lenses, exhibiting high contrast and high resolution for sharp, punchy images. Comprising two production zooms, two lightweight zooms and two extenders, the Alura series covers a focal length range of 15.5 mm to 500 mm. The lightweight zooms are unprecedented in the level of optical sophistication they pack into such compact housings, offering the perfect solution for fast-moving productions, Steadicam and handheld work, smaller cameras and action shots.
Duclos Lenses has developed a conversion process for the Tokina 11-16mm ultra-wide angle lens. Most obvious is the PL mount that interfaces with any PL mount camera including the RED Epic. More subtle yet most important is the activated manual aperture control. Lubricated, geared, and marked, the new aperture ring allows precise control for the user. The outer shell of the lens has been replaced with black anodized aluminum. Internal components are refined and reenforced. The final product is a small, lightweight lens perfectly capable of holding it’s own against the likes of other motion picture optics. Now also available in Canon Eos and Nikon F mount.
