When you hire these Cooke Anamorphic/i Special Flare lenses you will get all of the anamorphic characteristics demanded by filmmakers today, including the Cooke Look® and oval bokeh. Images that are beautifully rendered for film and especially suited for use with digital cameras. The Anamorphic/i lens correct aberrations exceptionally well over the entire image area – astigmatism, lateral and longitudinal colour – that will render shape, form, and soul to your images.

While the “look” is crucial, precision engineering and seamless integration with other equipment is equally important. The Anamorphic/i, prime lenses in ten focal lengths are colour matched to our S4/i and miniS4/i lenses.

First feature using Cooke Anamorphic /i lenses: Un Homme Ideal, shot by Antoine Roch, AFC who said, “The Cooke Anamorphic/i lenses have a wonderful round feel to them. We really put the set through its paces, using them in a multitude of shooting situations – day, night, interior, exterior, rain, sun, even into a splash bag – and the lenses performed beautifully all the time, with nice oval bokehs.”
