Cooke Mini S-4 Full Set of 9


Owner Notes:

The miniS4/i Cine Lens Set from Cooke comes with an illustrious heritage: most Hollywood films made in the first half of the 20th century were shot with Cooke lenses. Now, Cooke has revived the brand with a new set of lenses that further extend the company's reputation for quality into the digital era. Comprising 18mm, 25mm, 32mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm lenses, this set of lightweight, cost-effective primes are companions to Cooke's already established S4/i lenses. They carry over the most desirable features of their more expensive brethren, sacrificing only a single T-stop in the process. And yet with their aperture range of T2.8 to T22, the miniS4/i remain extremely flexible and make up for light sensitivity with reduced size, weight, and cost.

Their PL mounts make the lenses compatible with the most commonly used professional digital cinema cameras, including the RED ONE, Sony F35 and F3, Canon C300 PL, and Arri D21. Color-matched and interchangeable with all Cooke lenses, this set combines classic, hand-fitted construction with a linear iris, cam-style focus, and /i Technology – which provides EXIF-like data to camera operators, cinematographers, and post-production technicians requiring precise measurements of lens and camera settings.

Cooke miniS4/i optics, meanwhile, are beyond superb, controlling flare, distortion, veiling glare, and spherical aberrations with the aperture wide open. This combination of unmatched image quality, state-of-the-art technology, and cost-effective durability makes this lens set the perfect tool for multi-camera shoots, second-unit photography, stunt work, or filmmaking on a budget.
