Cooke Anamorphic Prime lenses are supplied with the next generation /i Technology, and are designed for all PL mounted professional motion picture film and electronic cameras.

Cooke’s new /i Squared Technology metadata system builds on the capabilities of Cooke’s /i Technology. The newest functions provide inertial tracking data in addition to lens metadata to be used by applications such as matchmoving and 3D camera tracking. The position and orientation data, in addition to the lens data will help VFX teams better deal with common issues like occlusions, fast camera motion (motion blur) and other known challenges associated with today’s fast paced motion capture style. Cooke’s /i Technology provides vital information on lens setting, focusing distance, aperture and depth-of-field, hyperfocal distance, serial number, owner data, lens type and focal length in both metric and footage measurements. Information is captured frame-by-frame for use in post-production and real-time displays.

Focal Lengths: 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65mm Macro, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm, 180mm


NEW! 180mm just in! One of only a handful in the country, the 180mm Cooke Anamorphic Prime is now available at MPS Studio Dallas and Austin.

All of the anamorphic lens characteristics demanded by filmmakers today with the Cooke Look® and 2:1 oval bokah and 2x squeeze. That’s the Cooke Anamorphic /i Look. Images beautifully rendered for film and especially suited for use with digital cameras. The Cooke 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. Distortion, veiling glare, flares, and all aberrations are controlled at all apertures over the whole field of view, and like the S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i prime lenses, the cam focus mechanism allows for smooth focus adjustments.

Focus Movement

Ergonomically designed to have smooth and accurate travel – whilst utilising precision mechanics to provide a consistent feel in operation through the entire focus movement.

Optical Design

The Anamorphic/i series comprises of 10 Anamorphic Prime Lenses. These Lenses are optimised for film and digital film cameras reducing lateral colour aberration and providing an organic bokeh look. Anamorphic/i lenses are designed to provide maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration. The optics feature a 2x squeeze factor for super35 formats in 2.4:1 aspect ratio.

Color Balance

All Anamorphic/i lenses are colour balanced and colour matched – ensuring consistency across the series
