Atlas Mercury FF 1.5x Anamorphic Lenses 3 lens “Set A”  36, 42, 72 all T2.2.  Small, compact FF versions of the Atlas Orion series.

Like the Orions, think of them generating the ‘Stark Trek’ look… and then some.  They have a lot of character and they aren’t expensive.

270° focus travel rotation, Cine pitch 0.8 mod gearing on both iris and Focus ring are spaced to allow simultaneous drive control, even when two motors are mounted on the same side of the lens.

Full-Frame 1.5x Anamorphic

Imaging area of 36.7mm x 25.54mm covers full-frame sensors as well as 16:9 / 3:2 / 4:3 sensors, with easy delivery to 2:1 / 2.25:1 / 2.66:1 / 2.4:1.

In addition to the ease of supporting multiple delivery aspects, the Mercury Series 1.5x optical design allows for many of the visual characteristics image-makers love about the traditional 2x cinemascope format (oblong oval bokeh, barrel distortion, shallow depth of field) while also allowing for a meaningful size and weight reduction in the overall physical product design. This results in an ideal balance of compact size, weight, optical performance, and professional-focused usability across a variety of productions.
