The New SLR Magic APO HyperPrime CINE 50mm T2.1 Lens

United Kingdom (September 12th, 2014) – SLR Magic will present a new CINE lens to the public from the APO-HyperPrime lens family in the upcoming Photokina 2014 fair in Cologne at the SLR Magic booth (Hall 5.1, L-011).

The SLR Magic APO-HyperPrime CINE 50mm T2.1 is the first lens of the family. It achieves outstanding images under challenging lighting conditions.

When taking pictures with many image-dominant, open light sources, it is common for correction defects to show up. However, because the SLR Magic APO-HyperPrime CINE 50mm T2.1 is an apochromatic (APO) lens, longitudinal chromatic aberrations are corrected by its unique optical design and selection of optical elements. The colour defects are therefore significantly lower than the defined limits. Bright / dark transitions in the image, and especially highlights, are rendered with no colourful artifacts. Thanks to the low level of longitudinal chromatic aberration, there are no visible aberrations. So an illuminated portrait scene by night with many light sources in front of and behind the actual focal plane appears close to reality, without displaying complementary, colour contrast edges.

The superior performance delivered by the SLR Magic APO-HyperPrime CINE 50mm T2.1 is consistent for all shooting distances. Its high performance with an open aperture also makes this lens a great choice for portraits or close-ups.

Features a completely new optical and mechanical design, which has been developed to take into account the special and increasing demands of high-resolution cameras including those with 4K and 6K sensors.

The APO-HyperPrime CINE lens series comes standard in PL mount and can be easily adapted to numerous camera systems. Optional mount adapters will include PL-mFT adapter, PL-E adapter, and EF mount conversion adapter. The lenses all feature a standard focus rotation angle of 300 degrees and uniform measurements. This combination makes the lenses ideally suited for professional cinematography.

As a continued dedication to anamorphic lenses, some of the lenses in the APO-HyperPrime CINE lens family would be compatible with the SLR Magic 1.33x 50 Anamorphot adapter.

SLR Magic plans to exhibit the first lens of its PL cinema series at the Photokina, Cologne 16th to 21st September 2014. The SLR Magic stand is located in Hall 5.1, Booth L-011.

SLR Magic will start shipping the APO-HyperPrime CINE 50mm T2.1 in early 2015. Pricing to be confirmed at a later date.
