Lens producer Sirui has added a brand new mannequin to its line of 1.6x anamorphics for full body sensors with a 75mm T2.9 lens. Teased on its social media channels for a number of weeks and launched through an Indiegogo marketing campaign, the brand new lens joins the corporate’s present 50mm T2.9 1.6x anamorphic to start making a set.
The marginally uncommon 1.6x squeeze offers the lens the horizontal angle of view of a 47mm spherical lens on a full body sensor, and the vertical angle of view of a 75mm. When used with the 16:9 recording side ratio the resultant dequeezed picture shall be 2.85:1 which may then be cropped to a extra manageable and conventional widescreen ratio akin to 2.4:1, 2.5:1 or 2.66:1. Sirui says a 2.4:1 ratio can also be potential after desqueezing, however to realize this footage must be recorded within the 3:2 format—although that shall be straightforward for stills photographers. When used on a 4:3 sensor space the desqueezed footage will tackle the two.13:1 side ratio. The horizontal ‘angle-of-view’ you’re left with in your last movie will depend upon the crop you employ to suit your meant side ratio, and people capturing in 16:9 for a last 2.4:1 movie will discover the impact of the horizontal ‘focal size’ considerably longer than the said 47mm.
Sirui says the brand new lenses has extra noticeable anamorphic traits, by which it means extra outstanding blue streaks and oval out-of-focus highlights. The lens makes use of 15 components in 13 teams, has its anamorphic group on the entrance of the development and passes the sunshine by way of a 10-bladed iris. Will probably be accessible in mounts for RF/L/E and Z cameras and can weigh between 3.01-3.09lbs (1365-1401g) relying on the mount. The ahead filter thread is 82mm, the close-focus distance 2.8ft/0.85m, the main focus throw 95.5° and the size of the lens is between 6.02-6.2in (153.5-157.5mm).
The lens will price $1499 when it goes on basic launch however the Indiegogo marketing campaign is providing a beginning worth of $1199. Delivery is predicted to start in April 2022. That is Sirui’s ninth Indiegogo marketing campaign and all have been profitable. The lenses are clearly already made, and the aim of $5000 was reached in a short time.
