Cooke Optics

Cooke Optics is the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television.All lenses are colour matched so you can interchange with confidence. The lenses are easily maintained, accurate, and reliable. By far the majority of Cooke lenses ever manufactured are still in everyday use.

Cooke Optics is to add more choices to its acclaimed lens ranges. The Anamorphic/i range will benefit from 25mm and 135mm lenses which are expected to start shipping towards the end of 2014, followed by 180mm and 300mm lenses in 2015. In addition Cooke will add a 21mm lens to both the miniS4/i range and the 5/i series.

Cooke has expanded its workforce by over 10% in the last six months and extended its factory to accommodate rising demand.

From August 2014 Cooke Optics plans to include sensors for the forthcoming /i Squared Technology metadata system in all new Anamorphic/i, 5/i and S4/i lenses. The inertial system, developed by Cooke with support from The Pixel Farm and Codex, builds on the current /i Technology protocol supplying position and orientation data, in addition to lens data, to aid post-production work, particularly visual effects.
