Cine-Xenar III: SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH presents the third generation of its film lenses
Cine-Xenar lenses stand out with their high optical quality, low distortion and the possibility of ultra-close focusing. In addition, they are designed to reduce breathing to a minimum. According to Daniela Kesselem, MPTV product manager at Schneider-Kreuznach, “With its Cine-Xenar prime lenses, Schneider-Kreuznach now offers a creative tool for a wide range of applications using digital and 35mm film cameras or compact DSLR HD cameras with APS-C format.”
Not only do the Cine-Xenar lenses produce excellent image quality, they also feature a telecentric design that guarantees uniform illumination together with the electrical image sensors. By utilizing up to 18 iris blades, the lenses produce an excellent “bokeh” effect. The lenses’ high aperture and robust construction support the implementation of creative ideas. With the high-tech production technologies developed by the Schneider-Kreuznach Group, it is now possible to create pictures of hitherto unknown quality.
The lenses were primarily developed for RED, ARRI, Canon, Sony and Panasonic professional cameras with a PL mount. Thanks to their exchangeable camera mount, these versatile Cine-Xenar cinema lenses can also be used with semiprofessional digital SLR cameras such as the Canon EOS 7D. For Schneider-Kreuznach, it was a logical step to offer high-quality cinema lenses for DSLR cameras as these modern cameras feature APS-C sensors with video function in full HD resolution.
