Cooke Announces the New SP3 Full Frame Cine Lens Line09/05/2023
No matter how much filmmaking continues to innovate and progress, we always have an appreciation for nostalgia. Contemporary film projects that use older, classic lenses is a never-ending trend, but that does not come without its own unique issues. Now, with the release of the new SP3 Full Frame Cine Lenses, Cooke invites you to partake in this nostalgia with these Speed Panchro-inspired lenses, which have been optimized for your mirrorless camera.
The SP3 lens series features five total lenses—25mm, 32mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm—and a 5-lens kit with all available focal lengths and a heavy-duty case to carry them all. The lenses feature a native E mount and an RF mount will be available shortly after delivery, which can be redeemed for free directly from the manufacturer. The lenses will also be available in other mounts in the future, including L and M. A 9-blade iris and T2.4 to T16 aperture range render cinematic bokeh and greater depth-of-field control. Accurate skin tone and heightened contrast render realistic and natural images in your next short film.
Optical coatings on each lens help control lens flares and create matched color across the entire set for a consistent look to your footage. Focus and iris rings across all focus lengths are aligned for efficient lens switching without needing to recalibrate your follow focus motors. The SP3 lenses also match up with the Panchro/i Classic Prime Lenses for easy integration with your preëxisting loadout.
Familiar, industry-standard mechanical interfaces and a lightweight yet durable anodized shell allow the SP3 to easily function as your main cine lens. Their lightweight form factor makes them drone-mountable and capable of capturing high-flying cinematic panoramas.
