ZEISS LWZ3 21-100mm/T2.9-3.9 zoomlinssi elokuvakäyttöön julkaistiin

Zeiss on julkaissut uuden zoom-objektiivin Super35mm elokuva/tuotantokameroille. Saataville elokuvalinssi tulee arviolta tammikuussa 2017. Objektiivissa on ”exchangeable mount”, mikä tarkoitta sitä että sen saa viiteen eri mount-tyypin kameraan, esim. Sony E-Mount, Canon EF ja PL. Hintaluokka on noin 8000-9000€ + alv

ZEISS lehdistötiedote – Universal zoom for professional film productions

The new ZEISS Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 21-100mm/T2.9-3.9 T* is a convincing choice due to its compact design and light weight

Oberkochen, September 1, 2016
With the new ZEISS Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 21-100mm/T2.9-3.9 T* (ZEISS LWZ.3), the optics company is launching a zoom lens for the Super 35 format that can be used for a wide usage spectrum thanks to its light weight of only two kilos. The ZEISS LWZ.3’s optical qualities, long focus rotation angle for precise focusing, and the high quality of the materials used in its construction make it the ideal lens for sophisticated film shoots for many different application scenarios. The new zoom lens is compatible with all common film cameras, and will be available starting January 2017.

One lens instead of six
“With a focal length of 21 to 100 millimeters, the new ZEISS LWZ.3 covers a range for which cameramen had to use up to six fixed focal lengths until now. This flexibility delivers a clear price and time advantage as it is no longer necessary to change focal lengths,” said Christophe Casenave, product manager from ZEISS Camera Lenses. As a result, the zoom lens is well suited for budget-sensitive film projects.

Long-term investment
“Because of its modern optical design in a compact and high-quality housing, the ZEISS LWZ.3 is a long-term investment, especially for smaller productions,” added Casenave. Moreover, the ZEISS LWZ.3 is equipped with the well-known exchangeable mount – the so-called Interchangeable Mount System – with five different mounts for all current camera systems. Casenave also notes that the lens is characterized by its ergonomics, which allow high-quality films to be shot even in difficult situations. Such tricky situations can occur due to high time pressure, cramped space conditions on the set – where changing a lens is difficult to do – or low budgets. “The bokeh, highlights and contrast offer a look that you could otherwise only get with more expensive cine lenses,” said Casenave. Other technical quality features of the LWZ.3, in his view, include its calibrated scales, consistent imaging quality across the entire image field, no vignetting, and the efficient reduction of reflections through the well-known ZEISS T*® anti reflective coating.
