Lenses

Cooke uncoated Mini S4i PL Prime Set of 5x T2.8 lens are smaller, lighter than the S4i but offers the same resolution, optical quality and reliability.  Previously known as Cooke Panchro but not to be confused with old generation Cooke Panchros. 

This is an identical set of Cooke S4i PL Prime lenses but we have supplied these with uncoated front elements in order to generate lots of flare, when this is desired.

Cooke Mini S4i PL Prime Set of 5x T2.8 lens are smaller, lighter than the S4i but offers the same resolution, optical quality and reliability. Cooke decided that the lenses should be equally suitable for shooting film and digital images up to and beyond a 4K resolution pipeline.

In addition the lenses include /i Technology, providing lens data per frame for downstream post production.

Like the S4i lenses, the Cooke Mini S4is are designed for motion photography and they don't breathe.

The lenses are one stop slower than the S4i, as a result they can be smaller and lighter.

All Cooke lenses are colour matched. This means Cooke Mini S4i and S4i lenses can be mixed on a shoot with full confidence that the images will match.
