Xenon Full Frame Primes
For digital cinematography, Schneider-Kreuznach offers the FF-Prime lens range for demanding film and TV productions. This series of 4K lenses was designed for cameras with full frame sensors (36mm x 24mm). This means that the full image circle with a diameter of 43.3mm can be utilized for cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III or the Nikon D800. In addition, the interchangeable bayonet mount enables the lenses to be used on cameras with S35 sensors including the RED Dragon, the Canon C100/C300/C500, the Arri Alexa, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera or the Sony F5/F55. The current range of focal lengths will be joined by 18mm and 135mm lenses. The 14-blade iris creates a harmonious bokeh and breathing is reduced to a minimum. Color matching ensures homogeneous color characteristics, thus reducing time-consuming corrections during postproduction.
