Cooke adds Special Flair Zoom to Anamorphic/i SF range

Cooke has added a 35 - 140mm zoom to its Anamorphic/i SF lens family. The SF (“Special Flair”) lenses have a specially developed coating that adds even more flare, in addition to the oval bokeh and other aberrations that are synonymous with the anamorphic look.

The new zoom lens from Cooke Optics is identical in every other aspect to the standard 35mm-140mm Anamorphic/i zoom. The Anamorphic/i SF is a true front anamorphic zoom with 2x squeeze, a cam-style focus mechanism, /i Technology to capture lens metadata, and, of course, the ‘Cooke Look’. Color and depth of field are matched to the rest of the Anamorphic/i SF range.

The Anamorphic/i SF range was used to shoot two of the biggest box office hits of October 2018, A Star Is Born (Warner Bros) and Venom(Sony).
