Consistency is one of the key elements offered by the ZEISS Supreme Prime lenses: that means consistent coverage, color rendering, aperture, size, weight and ergonomics. All the lenses across the family cover full frame and even bigger sensors with an image circle of 46.2 mm. The Supreme Prime lenses are color matched across the full range and most feature a fast T-stop of T1.5. The small front diameter of 95 mm on almost all lenses and standardized positioning of the focus and iris rings across the whole family facilitate fast and easy equipment changeout. The compact and lightweight design means you enjoy easy and comfortable handling. The ultra-smooth focus rotation of the Supreme Prime lenses even in extreme temperatures allows for small motors to make sure you have an easy setup that’s enjoyable to work with.
IDEA VISION ́s Hybris is custom designed to reduce high and low frequency vibrations and hard impact shocks typically experienced when shooting from moving platforms on rough terrain or paved roads. The front mount can be set for under or overslung use of any camera, gimbal or stabilized head.

The ARRI cforce mini RF combines a selection of well proven components with new and refined ones. Based on the widely-adapted cforce mini lens motor, it includes the latest iteration of ARRI’s
white-coded radio module with improved interference resistance, and six additional radio channels compatible with the WCU-4 hand unit. It comes with the solid high-quality outdoor antenna also
used on the UMC-4 motor controller.
The cforce mini RF can pair with up to three hand units for split focus, iris and zoom operation, and provides full lens data for focus mapping and lens data display with the WCU-4 hand unit.
Using the LBUS interface, the system can be expanded with two additional cforce motors, while the new CAM connector provides a versatile interface for power supply and run/stop control with ARRI, and third-party cameras.

Even though a standard size of approximately 95 x 145 cm is well established for batteries in the broadcasting and film industry today, there are quite a lot of applications where the traditional battery format reaches its limits. Take particularly small cameras, viewfinder monitors or accessories such as audio kits and carrying cases as an example - it doesn't make sense to work with a power supply that has nearly the size of the camera or accessory. More compact solutions are required here, that align with the small dimensions of the supplied units. Sometimes size does matter...
Cooke announced new focal lengths of its S7/i Full Frame Plus and Panchro/i Classic lens lines that the company said will be debuting between now and the end of the year.
Ready for demo at NAB will be the new Panchro/i Classic 135mm lens, first in a series of 2018 additions that will also bring 21mm, 27mm, and 65mm Macro lenses to the line. Built to emulate the look and feel of the original Speed Panchro lens, the line currently includes 18mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 152mm lenses.
Also coming this year are 16mm, 21mm, 27mm, and 65mm S7/i lenses, Cooke said, adding to the already available 18mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mmm and 135mm versions. The S7i lens line is specifically designed with a 46.31mm diameter image circle to cover the full sensor area of the Red Weapon 8K, Sony Venice and ARRI Alexa LF.
Featuring a sensor slightly larger than full frame, ALEXA LF records native 4K with ARRI’s best overall image quality. This allows filmmakers to explore an immersive large-format aesthetic while retaining the sensor’s natural colorimetry, pleasing skin tones and stunning capability for HDR and WCG workflows. Versatile recording formats, including efficient ProRes and uncompressed, unencrypted ARRIRAW up to 150 fps, encompass all on-set workflow requirements.
Accompanying the ALEXA LF camera are 16 large-format ARRI Signature Prime lenses, ranging from 12 mm to 280 mm and fitted with the ARRI LPL mount. While the Signature Primes exemplify state-of-the-art optical precision, they have been designed to render organic, emotionally engaging images, gently softening and texturizing the large format with natural skin tones and creamy bokeh. A fast T-stop of T1.8 facilitates shallow depth of field and the smooth focus fall-off gives subjects heightened presence in the frame.
The ARRI Signature Prime range is the first cine lens series to feature machined magnesium lens barrels, making the optics incredibly lightweight and robust. They are also the first to incorporate ARRI’s next-generation LDS-2 Lens Data System, with high data rates and absolute encoders for fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lens data and is being licensed to other lens and camera manufacturers.
The S35x8K Expander – using S35 lenses up to 8K.
Magnification from Super-35 to Full Frame
Maximum Image Performance – Minimum Light Falloff
With its magnification factor of 1.6x the S35x8K Expander scales the Super-35 image up to maximum 46.4 mm which covers full-frame format (ø43.5 mm) and even the RED Dragon 8K format (46.3 mm).
During the design of the expander, special attention was paid to ensure a minimum of light falloff and a maximum imaging performance up to the edge of the larger sensors.
The S35x8K Expander is recommended for lenses with a max. aperture of T-stop of 2.0, providing the best performance at T2.8, with optimal resolution and sharpness.
The PLx1.4 Mark II has improved optical performance espe-cially at higher T-Stops. It extends the focal length of S35 PL mount lenses by a factor of 1.4, losing only one stop of light. The recommended max. input T-Stop is 1.6.The extender features high-index, low-dispersion glass to en-sure the highest possible resolution and contrast with mini-mal optical degradation. The optical design is optimized for digital cameras with telecentric ray path at the sensor. Compatibility is achieved with a deep-set optical assembly that accepts lenses with deep protruding rear elements. The PLx1.4 Mark II is also designed to mount to any digital cine-ma camera with a native PL mount. The UMS Mount System makes it easy to change the mount to Canon EF, Sony E, MFT or others without re-shimming.

Altering the various applications doesn't necessitate any supplementary tools, making set-ups quick and easy. The new matte box is also a highly compatible to legacy accessories; all clamp adapters and filter frames from the former models LMB-5, LMB-15, and LMB-25 are compatible. The LMB 4x5 also maintains the streamlined design for which ARRI's LMB range is known.
The LMB 4x5 will be launched at Broadcast Asia in Singapore end of May and directly after at Cine Gear in Los Angeles early June. ARRI is looking forward to the first customer shipment expected in July 2017.
