The SLR Magic 35mm Cine Mark II Lens is a compact lens designed for compact system cameras for both photography and cinematography. Excellent for portrait and creative photography.
At the wide open aperture it shows a sharp "hot spot" in the centre and a beautiful, soft bokeh in the boundary area. With different combinations of f-stop and focus, you can create many surprising and great effects.
The robust metal construction houses an array of glass elements (8 elements in 8 groups, 4 tantalum) to provide a fast aperture of T1.4 (T stops are a measure of the actual amount of available light). Aperture setting and focusing is done manually. Specifically for cinematographers this lens has an integrated follow-focus set-up and a "de-clicked" (silent / smooth) aperture. These are essential when filmaking.
Compact and lightweight, a perfect everyday companion for everyone. Compatible with Micro four thirds(MFT) mount, Fujifilm X mount and Sony E mount cameras. This mark II version has improved focusing and a more robust front section. The latter is designed to allow the use of anamorphic lenses with out compromise.
SLR Magic's uniquely designed variable neutral density filter provides the equivalent brightness range from 2 1/3 (ND 1.3) to 6 (ND 64) f-stop reduction with full practical range. Color shift and cross-like vignette effect commonly found on variable ND filters are avoided through use of special glass and treatment.
The versatility of the SLR Magic variable ND filter replaces the need for a set of ND filters and also prevents vignette that may occur when multiple ND filters are used. Digital multi-coating is used to reduce lens flares and ghosting effect caused by reflections. Calibrated markings on filter allow for repeatable positions.
Lever on ND filter helps to avoid obstruction during recording when ultra wide angle lenses. The SLR Magic Variable ND has markings from Minimum to Maximum in 12 calibrated positions, which are repeatable. Sharpness of Variable ND filters usually decreases dramatically whenused beyond ND density of 1.0 but the SLR Magic Variable ND filter is able to maintain sharpness throughout the entire density range.
Many Variable ND filtersusually show striation patterns in the out-of-focus circles of confusion in the bokeh but the SLR Magic Variable ND filter is optimized to suppress such effects.
