Xenon FF-Prime Cine-Tilt Lenses

The world’s first full-frame cine primes to offer dynamic tilt functionality

These innovative lenses combine a similar form factor and capabilities as the standard Xenon FF-Primes with an added tilt function up to ±4°. By sustaining the field of view during focus and tilt actions, the new cine-tilt design means that previously unimaginable images can be taken by moving and tilting the focus plane. These lenses make it possible to capture out-of-focus areas in the frame, especially when using tilt with a large aperture. A 4° tilt angle on the sensor plane corresponds to an 80° focal plane, which varies according to the selected focal length and aperture setting.

These color-matched lenses feature minimized breathing and a bokeh reminiscent of classic Hollywood. The new design incorporates sophisticated mechanics for smooth and accurate tilt action. The tilt of the lens is controlled via a high-precision ring with 120° rotation that is as intuitive to operate as pulling focus. Thanks to the common 0.8 module gear, the Cine-Tilt can be used with standard follow-focus systems.

With the tilt set at 0°, the Cine-Tilt lenses provide identical images to the standard FF-Primes. The homogenous set comprises focal lengths of 25 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm and 100 mm – all with T2.1.

The lenses are usable on Sony E mount cameras and will be available as of spring 2017.
