We are very excited to have just added the new Rokinon Cine-DS line of cinema prime lenses with color matched optics. We have 24mm, 35mm, 50mm & 85mm prime lenses.
The Rokinon Cine Primes are excellent for several reasons. First, image quality is very good. And they are extremely fast at F1.5. We can shoot in very low light conditions. They also allow for very shallow depth of field. Throwing the background out of focus is very popular today. DS stands for “Dual Scale”, which means there is a scale on each side so an AC can operate the lens from either side of the camera. They make an awesome package when coupled with our Sony FS7 and Chrosziel matte box.
Check out a few stills we grabbed from a recent project where we used Rokinon lenses.
