In this short video, James Mathers, Cinematographer and Founder of the Digital Cinema Society takes a quick, unscientific look at two of P+S TECHNIK’s new TECHNOVISION Classic 1.5X anamorphic lenses. We intercut directly between the anamorphic 35-70mm Zoom and the 50mm Prime and a spherical Fujinon 25-300mm zoom, so the viewer can easily assess and compare the different qualities of the two kinds of lenses. The Technovision Classics cover larger formats such as Full Frame (FF+) and ARRI LF Format, but here we test with the VariCam V35 and LT.
The complete set will include the anamorphic prime lenses – 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 135mm – as well as two zoom lenses – 35-70mm and 70-200mm. The 35-70 zoom lenses are shipping and the longer zoom lens will start shipping in autumn. As for the Technovision Classic prime lenses, the longer lenses well ship before the end of this year and the shorter primes are scheduled to follow in spring 2019.
Special thanks to our volunteer crew of Cinematographer Cameron Cannon and Sound Mixer Christopher Scott Knell. Thanks also to Hot Rod Cameras, P+S Technik, Fujinon, and Panasonic for use of the location and gear to test.
