IB/E Optics


The S35x8K Expander – using S35 lenses up to 8K.

  • can be used with most S35 PL lenses
  • features UMS PL mount
  • incompatible with mirror cameras

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.

PLx1.4 Mark II Extender

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.

PLx2 Extender

The PLx2 Extender by IB/E Optics is compatible with a wide range of PL-mount lenses and cameras.


Modern cameras require the highest quality optics with designs optimized for electronic sensors. The PLx2 is an optical extender that doubles the focal length of 35mm PL-mount lenses. The PLx2 features high-index, low-dispersion glass to ensure the highest possible resolution and contrast with minimal optical degradation. The optical design is optimized for digital cameras, which work best with highly telecentric lenses.

While most extenders can only physically fit on a limited range of lenses, the design of the PLx2 allows it to accommodate the widest array of PL-mount lenses of any doubler. Compatibility is achieved with a deep-set optical assembly that accepts lenses with deep protruding rear elements. The PLx2 is also designed to mount to any digital cinema camera with a native PL-mount. It will also clear the spinning mirror on Arri and Aaton 35mm cameras. Optically, the PLx2 projects an image with a diameter large enough to cover all commonly used 35mm formats, including 5K on Red Epic and the full 4:3 frame of ALEXA. Minimum image circle projection is 32mm. Maximum input aperture is F1.8.


The PLx2 is compatible with the following lenses:


  • Arri/Zeiss Master Primes
  • Arri/Zeiss Ultra Primes longer than 50mm
  • Arri/Zeiss High Speed MK II/III Primes longer than 50mm
  • Cooke Mini S4/i Primes longer than 32mm
  • Cooke S4/i Primes longer than 35mm
  • Leica Summilux-C
  • RED Pro Primes
  • Schneider Cine-Xenar III Primes
  • Sony CineAlta Primes (non PL-Prime)
  • Zeiss Compact Primes (including Super Speeds)


  • Angenieux Optimo Cine Zooms (non-DP series)
  • ARRI/Fujinon ALURA
  • Canon CN-E and Cine-Servo
  • Cooke
  • Fujinon Cabrio and Premier PL
  • Zeiss Comact Zoom CZ.2

PL-Mount MacroRing

The MacroRing works by increasing the extension of your lens. It moves your lens further from the sensor plane, and the front element closer to the subject. The closer you can focus, the more magnification you get. You can easily mount it on any PL-Mount lens.


A 50mm Zeiss Ultra Prime for instance has a MOD of ca. 50cm and the magnification at this distance is 1:7,8. The MacroRing shifts this to a ca. 25cm - which is half of it and doubles the magnification factor.


Technically speaking the magnification factor of a macro lens is >1. With the MacroRing attached you cannot focus to infinity. The MacroRing does not replace a real macro lens! It is more intended as tool that AC has in its tool bag in the very likely case of unplanned close-up shots.
