A complete range of perfectly matched high-speed full frame cine lenses, consisting of 16 different focal lengths from 18mm to 350mm. All created to the same exacting standard and hand-crafted to the same exceptional quality and reliability.
The S8 features premium all-spherical lenses, which produce a uniquely organic, film-like quality, which is characterised by smooth, spherical bokeh and minimal colour fringing. Enabling you to create sensitive and emotive images with a high degree of dimensionality.
The optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with controlled flare and spherical aberration, as well as reduced distortion.
Cooke S8 lenses have a maximum aperture of T1.4 across the majority of the lens lineup.
Cooke's Academy Award® winning cam-style focus movement coupled with the benefit of a large lens barrel diameter, allows for an increased number of focus markings, particularly at close focus. A four-point contact bearing also provides a smooth positive backlash-free movement.
Every focus mark is individually calibrated and engraved on both sides of the focus barrel for ease of use.
Accessible via a cable connector near the lens mount and synchronizes with /i compatible cameras and accessories. The electronics board has also been resized and repositioned for easy serviceability.
The lenses are designed for all shooting applications, including handheld and Steadicam, providing a comfortable balance ratio with the latest compact digital cinema cameras.
All S8 lenses have a common fixed front diameter of 104mm, with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 mod and an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8.
To ensure compatibility with other Cooke lenses, the entire S8 range is colour balanced and colour matched for uniformity.
The S8 range features a nine-leaf linear module iris assembly.
Every Cooke lens is coated with a scratch resistant PTFE hard anodised finish, which provides a durable, hard-wearing surface to meet the most demanding environmental conditions.
