Super-Digitar and APO-Digitar: SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH presents two super wide-angle lenses for large sensors at photokina 2010

At this year’s photokina, Schneider-Kreuznach presents two wide-angle lenses with extremely high performance for professional photographers with large-format cameras from Hasselblad, Leaf or Phase one: Super-Digitar XL 5.6/28 and APO-Digitar 5.6/60

(PresseBox) (Bad Kreuznach, ) Schneider-Kreuznach has developed two wide-angle lenses for large sensors, Super-Digitar and APO-Digitar XL, with professional photographers in mind. Both lenses have an aperture range of 5.6 to 22 and offer high picture quality and excellent contrast, even in adverse light conditions. However, the two lenses are designed for different applications.

The Super-Digitar is aimed at photographers who need a wide angle to capture expansive images with freedom of movement for perspective corrections or shifting. The lens has been recalculated and its mechanics modified. It has a focal length of 28 mm and a large 90 mm image circle, enabling the lens to support all the possible settings available in modern cameras. The apochromatically corrected 10-element double Gauss lens provides high-quality images even at full aperture and features a homogenous resolution of up to 80 line pairs and excellent contrast with a working aperture of 8.

The APO-Digitar is a newly designed lens with a focal length of 60 mm. It has been created for studio photographers who require a standard lens for normal images with freedom of movement for perspective corrections or shifting. The very large 120 mm image circle allows extensive adjustments of the apochromatically corrected 8-element double Gauss lens. The latest processing and manufacturing technologies have been used in its serial production to create pictures of hitherto unknown quality.

For more information on photo technology from Schneider-Kreuznach, visit us at photokina 2010 from 21 to 26 September in hall 4.2, booth D 021.
