White Point Optics vintage medium format Hasselblad reengineered cine lenses

White Point Optics is a Finnish company that takes vintage Hasselblad optics and reengineers them to perform at their peak performance for filmmaking. The look of the vintage lenses gives the image a lot of character that compliments modern high detail images that come from digital cinema cameras.

The lenses are housed in a bespoke mechanism which is exclusively handmade in Finland. The lenses have an 82mm image circle and are designed for medium format 6×6 stills camera and easily exceeds the current batch of full frame cinema sensors. All the optics are removed from the original housing and rehoused, respaced and tuned up to give the lenses an even better look.
