In this interview David talks with us about the latest Large Format craze and specifically which lenses from ZEISS have been a go-to choice.
Ranging from 15 mm to 135 mm, the ten focal lengths available in the ZEISS Compact Prime CP.3 or CP.3 XD series cover all applications from wide-angle to telephoto. The ZEISS CP.3 lenses feature advanced lens coatings, painted lens rims and special light traps within the barrel to eliminate unwelcome veiling glare and flares. The result is higher contrast, richer blacks and more saturated colors. The standardized positioning of the focus rings and a consistent 95 mm front diameter allows for fast and easy changeover while on set. Consistent T-stops simplifies lighting on set and exposure compensations (T2.9 for 15 to 21 mm and T2.1 for 25 to 135 mm). Currently the 10 focal lengths that are available are, the 15mm, 18mm, 21mm, 25mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, 135mm.
The ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses deliver great flexibility thanks to interchangeable mounts, allowing them to be used with a wide range of cameras from multiple manufacturers. Featuring Full-frame coverage (36 x 24 mm) for focal lengths of 15 to 200 mm, a common aperture of T2.9 through the range, nearly 300 degree focus rotation with no visible focus shift while change of focal length.
