Lensworks rentals has steadily added to our more modern inventory of optics. Last year we bought a big set of master primes to respond to increasing requests for lenses with more sharpness and resolution. Our set consists of : 14,18,21,27,32,40,50,75,100. We like the skin tones and resolution possible with these lenses for certain conditions they are hands down the best lenses for the job. #masterprime #zeissmasterprimes #zeisslenses #arri #lensgeek

Great work shot on the Meru anamorphic!! Posted @withregram • @fish_vizion Our short film Nerve premiered last week at the Rhode Island International Film Festival.

The narrative film follows @colby_stevenson as he fights to regain his brain function and eventually competitive success after a near-deadly car accident.

The film will have an online release this fall.

Directed and written by @claytonvila . Thank you for your collaborative energy on this one Pal. Great times strapping Komodo’s to your head and hiding in bushes stealing hospital b roll.

Couple of shots of the 25,60,85 type SK. Since their introduction earlier this year these have proven to be very popular !! Saturated colors, gentle skin tone rendering and wonderful lens flares akin to k35s and kowa prominars all with large format coverage!

New work!

Thanks @johnpoliquin for having me out on the official music video for @jamesgunn’s The Su***de Squad — the amazing track “RAIN” by @Grandson & @Jessie Reyez.

From JP -
The concept was to integrate the artists seamlessly in the world of the movie and build out a parallel narrative featuring them as ass-kicking antiheroes. With only a single day to shoot 8+ scenes, I knew it was su***de. There were fight sequences, dance sequences, rain effects, stunts and visuals effects that seemed impossible given the time and budget constraints. To top it off, we lost our production designer and art department the Friday before our Monday shoot. We were dead in the water. Until production designer @kendrabell swooped in and saved our butts. With Kendra and her team’s superhuman hustle, they dressed the nightclub and prepped the practical effects over the weekend. The shoot day came, and with our fearless cast and crew, we went to battle. And everyone delivered. We created something full of blood, sweat and tears. Sometimes when something looks impossible, go out there and kick its ass anyway.

Big thank you to everyone involved with this project! Special shout out to cinematographer Bridger Nielson for giving us his eye on this project. Sorry I didn’t let you finesse much but we had to keep moving. Post-production had its own brand of insanity, but Max C**t and his VFX wizards turned it out for us.

02/12/2021

The Type SK lens set is the Culmination of 2 years of work for producing and rehousing a comprehensive matching set of vintage cinematography lenses for large format. Based on the Canon Rangefinder Series of lenses, the current and pictured focal lengths are 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 60mm, 85mm, 100mm with a 40 and 135 in development.

These lenses are 1950s optical designs from the time when Japan was trying to come out of the devastation of World War II and the major export was cameras. Canon has long been known as the best of the best manufacturer of both optics and cameras. Their dedication to excellence is second to none. Canon’s original name was Seiki Kogaku which means “Precision Optics” in Japanese! Hence we had to pay homage to the amazing engineers and designers who made their lenses in the name “TYPE SK”

the 35mm is an incredible 8 element design which is similar to the leica summilux of the same era, it has great sharpness, low astigmatism but a lot of pleasing coma which keeps skin tones smooth and makes the backgrounds very interesting! We are very excited about the possibilities this set brings for large format shooters and believe this is a top choice for cinematographers worldwide! Pictured here: 35,25,60,85 focal lengths.

Here are some of the first public stills from the Type-Sk lenses all shot on Sony A7r2 36x24mm full frame sensor. Type SK lenses are made of early 60s Canon Rangefinder glass and are characterized by:

a fast effective T stop,
consistent neutral to warm color tone,
soft out of focus bokeh,
pleasing field curvature with cats eye bokeh,
golden flares,
soft gentle glowing highlights
and extremely low chromatic aberration.

Another rare bird has landed at Lensworks Rentals!

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 22-154mm f/2.8 / T3.3 7x Zoom

This lens had a very small production run in the 70s I have only seen 3-4 for sale anywhere in years of buying lenses.

Our friends at @truelensservices and @ducloslenses helped us modernize this old girl with service, mount, fronts and gears!

This lens was built around the time of B speeds and / or MK1 Super Speeds. It shares the Early T* coatings and non-perfect optical designs, giving it a creamy look, soft out of focus bokeh and edge falloff.

This lens also has a great range from 22mm wide to well into telephoto on Super 35. If you need a warm to neutral zoom with a lot of character, this is your lens!. A perfect match to K35s, super or B speeds. Perfect for Narratives Music Videos and Commercials! This lens is best on the 35mm sensor 4K imager of the Sony Venice or the Alexa mini with an expander.
