Angénieux goes prime!

FULL FRAME OPTIMO PRIME SERIES – We take your creativity a step further

The Full Frame Optimo Prime series is a perfect match with the Optimo Ultra 12X, the new long-range zoom reference of the industry. The Optimo Prime series is part of Angénieux’s latest high end lens collection and will be ideal for demanding productions requiring native cinema design.

70-years after the first Angenieux prime series, Optimo Primes are the result of decades of proven experience and know-how in high precision optics and mechanics. Each lens in the 12 piece series (from 18mm to 200mm) was designed to be incredibly compact and lightweight, most of them at a fast T1.8, with Optimo-class mechanics and feel that embodies the legendary Angenieux look.

Based on cinematographer feedback, Optimo Primes will also provide meta data (Cooke-I, LDS) and unique user-features such as:

> Replaceable Iris blade unit, user-configurable for bokeh (including anamorphic effect)
> Filters to change optical properties, MTF, CCI, etc.
> High-end cinema functionality: constant volume, non-linear iris (as for Optimo Zoom range), non-linear focus (as for Optimo Zoom range), with 320° focus rotation angle, possibility to go ‘beyond’ infinity and close focus, identical colorimetry across the range, matched to OPTIMO Zooms, round bokeh across image plane
> Front diameter 95mm (except for 18mm and 200mm)
> Available as PL or LPL
