PrimeCircle offers cinema character13 September 2014
The new PrimeCircle XM (manual focus and manual aperture) cinema lenses from LockCircle have started shipping, and offer smooth focus action with calibrated (one to one) focus scales for precise follow-focus work.
The lightweight Italian-made prime lenses use Carl Zeiss optics, and are priced from €1,399 to €3,499. They are designed to meet the requirements of 4K cameras, and are available in nine different focal lengths. Each lens has individually calibrated focus scales (metric or imperial), and the aperture is geared for dynamic exposure control.
