  1. Zeiss CP2 6-Lens Set PL Mount

    Zeiss CP.2 lenses have become a standard for film and television productions.  These cinema primes offer full-frame coverage, perfect for cinema cameras with standard Arri PL mounts.  The six different lens lengths offer coverage for all situations. We stock the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm super speed versions.

    Shooting on a matching lens set means your shots will all have the same color, contrast, and look.  The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  These lenses are fully manual, and the barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. They have imperial markings (in feet). We include a hard case.

    Lenses included:

    Zeiss CP2 21mm T2.9 PL
    Zeiss CP2 28mm T2.1 PL
    Zeiss CP2 35mm T1.5 PL
    Zeiss CP2 50mm T1.5 PL

    zeiss-cp2-3-lens-set

  3. Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 Cine Ultrawide Prime Lens

    14mm-ultra-wide-ef-lens

    This Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 lens is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers, with more than 115-degree angle of view on a camera like the Canon 5D mark III.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as MFT with an adapter.

    The aperture is declicked and the lens is fully manual, making it perfect for video and cinema applications. We also offer the photo lens for photographers. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.  You’ll need a matte box and square filters.

    This lens is popular with Blackmagic camera shooters with EF mount cameras. It also tends to find its way onto productions with the Zeiss CP2 or Schneider FF lenses, when those fullframe lenses just aren’t wide enough.

  4. Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 Lens

    tilt-shift-lens

    The Rokinon tilt-shift 24mm f/3.5 lens is a wide-angle, full frame lens that allows both shift (+/- 12mm) and tilt (+/- 8.5°) adjustments.  This EF-mount lens is popular for architectural work, as well as adding a dreamy focus look to photos and video. It’s also useful for making real life look miniature, with a very distinct plane of focus.

    Usually, we find shooters using this lens at pretty narrow apertures, to regain some control over focus and keep the focal plane extra sharp.  Our tests put the sweet spot for this lens in the f/8 to f/11 range.  The minimum focus distance of 22 cm makes for some creative possibilities with macro, as well.

    The Rokinon tilt-shift lens is also sold as Samyang or Bower.  The front filter threads are 82mm.  The lens is fully manual.

  5. Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Prime Lens

    8mm-fisheye-lens

    The Rokinon (or Samyang) 8mm f/3.5 HD fisheye is a prime lens for cameras with EF and EF-S mounts.  This lens is incredibly wide, and bends straight lines around the center of the lens in dynamic and interesting ways.  The extreme wide-angle is most popular in sports, action, and music videos.

    The lens is fully manual, with aperture and focus controls on the barrel.  The imaging circle will cover an APS-C size (1.6x crop-factor) sensor completely, but fullframe cameras will fall off to black in the image corners.

    This 8mm is also a nice wide option for smaller-sized sensor cameras with EF mounts, like the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

  6. 35mm f/1.4 Rokinon Prime Lens

    35mm-f-1-4-ef-rental
    Suggested accessories:
    Canon DSLR

    The Rokinon (or Samyang) 35mm f/1.4 is a fast prime lens for Canon EF and EF-S cameras.  The lens is fully manual, with aperture and focus controls on the barrel.  It’s slightly wide-angle on a fullframe camera like the Canon 5D series, and “normal” on a crop factor camera.

    Overall, this lens is a fantastic performer if you don’t mind manual focusing.  Perhaps surprisingly, we like it better than the Canon 35mm f/1.4L.  Very subtle vignetting is undetectable by f/2.  Mount filters with the 77mm front threads.  Close-focuses to 0.3m.

  7. Canon 1.4x Telephoto Extender EF Lens Adapter

    canon-1-4x-telephoto-extender

    The Canon 1.4x telephoto extender will extend your long Canon lenses to make them 40% more telephoto.  Your focal length increases by 1.4x and your maximum aperture is reduced by one stop.  A lens like the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS becomes approximately 100-280mm f/4 IS.

    The telephoto adapter will not fit most of the “normal” zoom range Canon lenses, so be sure to check for compatibility with the lens(es) you plan to use. Image stabilization features, focus, and autoexposure will all continue to work normally.  The lens adapter leave the minimum focusing distance unchanged, so you’ll get 1.4x magnification for macro work, as well.

  8. Macro Extension Tubes – Canon EF Mount

    canon-extension-tubesSuggested accessories:
    Canon DSLR, Lenses, Tripod
    Make your favorite EF-mount lens a macro lens with these extension tubes.  You can focus incredibly close, and take pictures and video of very small objects when you’re using a macro extension tube.  The electrical contacts allow for full control over focus and iris, and the air-only design means there are no additional lens elements.  This gives you much sharper images than using diopters.The three varying lengths allow you to choose the focal range to fit your lens and your application.These work with any canon-mount lens, but we most often use it with longer lenses like the Rokinon 85mm t/1.5.

    As with diopters, you’ll be unable to focus to infinity with the adapter on.  If you need a lens that can focus both near and far without an adapter, you’ll want a macro lens.

  9. Canon 20-35mm f/2.8L Lens

    Canon-20-35mm-wide-angle-zoom-lens

    The Canon 20-35mm f/2.8L lens is a wide angle zoom that works with full frame as well as crop factor cameras, and fits every camera Canon has made since the mid-1980s.  What’s more important is that it makes great pictures and video.  The L-series designation means sturdy all-metal build and fast USM autofocus for stills shooters.  Sharp even at f/2.8, by f/5.6 we’d be happy making landscape prints that were six feet across.

    We love this vintage lens for a stack of reasons.  First, everybody loves 20mm and 35mm focal lengths.  Second, the bokeh on this lens is fantastic.  The weight is much more manageable than similar wides, like the beefy Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8. As an added bonus for video shooters, there is little-to-no breathing on focus pulls. This wide lens has the least distortion of any Canon zoom in this range, particularly at around 24mm where edges get perfectly square.  If you are shooting portraits or architecture and want a wide zoom, this is definitely Canon’s strongest offering.

    Shows subtle vignetting at f/2.8 on the wide side.  Almost completely even by f/4. It has 72mm front threads.

  10. Zeiss ZE Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 EF-mount lens with Duclos Lenses Cine-Mod

    zeiss-50mm-cine

    This is a Zeiss ZE Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 lens, with an EF mount. The iris is electronically controlled, but the focus is fully manual, and a focusing gear has been added by Duclos Lenses cine-mod process.

    The combination of Zeiss optics, all-metal construction, and a focus gear make this lens a killer choice for video as well as product photography where precision is paramount.  The standard gear pitch will match with any follow focus.  If you’re a video shooter going for a cinema-style look without breaking the bank, this lens should be the first one in your kit.

    Advantages over the standard Canon 50mm photo primes include hard focus stops, longer focus barrel rotation, and sharper optics edge-to-edge, especially in the middle of the f-stop range.  Nearly all reviewers rate the Zeiss above the highly coveted 50mm f/1.2L (as well as the 50mm f/1.4), and for video shooters, the difference is even more pronounced. Close-focuses to 1 1/2 feet.
