A range of seven high-performance prime lenses, the ARRI Master Anamorphic series represents a significant step forward in the technology and practicality of anamorphic cinematography for 35 format digital and film cameras.
For the first time, a perfect combination of compact size, minimal weight, very high speed and exceptional optical design with minimal distortion has been achieved in a set of anamorphics. With beautiful out-of-focus backgrounds and a smooth, cinematic look, the Master Anamorphic lenses are as fast and easy to use on set as other modern cine lenses.
Low distortion for uncompromised cinemascope:straight lines stay straightno distortion compensation in post necessarylow distortion even at close focus
Cinematic bokeh with high contrast and nice focus fall-off:very smooth out-of-focus imageimmersive look
Beautiful skin tones and precise colour rendition:smooth and pleasant skin tonesnatural crispy colour rendition
Characteristic out-of-focus highlights:oval and uniform illuminated out-of-focus highlightssmooth iris shape because of 15 aperture blades
Large image field for full freedom in composition:full 2.39:1 format is useable for image compositionno visible image drop at the corners
Large aperture of T1.9 for shallow depth of focus:T1.9 useable with any focal length at any distanceovercomes the old rule: “anamorphics need to be stopped down to T4.5”
Virtually no image breathing
No anamorphic mumps (fat face effect)
Super colour matched to other ARRI/ZEISS primes and ARRI/Fujinon zooms
