Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc. is the most comprehensive resource for digital cinema equipment and technical information in the industry. Band Pro’s team of respected experts can provide knowledgeable solutions to all production challenges based on 30 years of experience. In this interview Jeff showcases a new range of Angenieux zoom lenses – the Angénieux Type EZ Series – two fast and light weight zoom lenses integrating an innovative modular design (Interchangeable Rear Optics IRO technology™) to cover S35 mm and larger image formats for cine and broadcast productions.
Created to fill the wide gap between basic still photography zooms, and the highly acclaimed Optimo, Optimo Style family of lenses used in the motion pictures industry, the Angénieux Type EZ series features two new light weight zooms. Thanks to an innovative lens modular design (Interchangeable Rear Optics IRO technology™), both lenses allow the rear lens group to be exchanged between S35mm (up to 30mm image diagonal), and FF/VistaVision format (up to 46mm image diagonal). For the first time, ENG-style productions will get the flexibility necessary for run-and-gun shooting, combined with an excellence of image quality at an affordable price. Users can also easily change between PL, Canon EF and Sony E mounts.
The Angénieux Type EZ-1 Pack for S35mm/FF/VistaVision cameras is a standard zoom lens with a zoom factor of 3x. Its focal range and aperture are set to 30-90mm F1.9/T2. By exchanging the rear lens group, the lens becomes a 45-135mm F2.8/T3 for FF/VistaVision format covering an image circle up to 46mm diagonal.
