For the last 10 years Kinetic Cameras has provided DOP's with various different Anamorphic lenses including:
Lomos, Hawks, Cristal X-Press, Kowa, Cooke and Angenieux.
The Atlas Orion Series Lenses use a true Front Anamorphic Group delivering the striking beauty of painterly waterfall bokeh, disproportionate breathing, and signature but controlled flare. As well as being optically pleasing these lenses are mechanically robust, meeting the needs of Modern Cinematographers with uniform gear placement, a front diameter of 114mm, and a maximum aperture of T2 across the range.
The set comprises of a 40mm, 65mm and 100mm.
So when we heard about the Atlas Orion Series Anamorphic's we decided to order a set and in October 2018 we were one of the first companies to receive them.
