PRESS RELEASEUnited Kingdom (June 3rd, 2015) – SLR Magic is pleased to announce two new additions to our range of cine products, the 50mm T0.95 HyperPrime CINE Lens and the Rangefinder CINE Adapter.
The 50mm HyperPrime CINE lens is designed exclusively for Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount cameras, Blackmagic, Panasonic and #olympus. 100mm (35mm equivalency) focal length offers many new creative possibilities, in particular in the fields of portrait and documentary cinematography. An ultra-fast maximum aperture of T0.95 makes the SLR Magic 50mm CINE ideal for low-light photography. As usual with all our lenses, the lens has integrated aperture and focus gearing and a silent, ‘clickless’ aperture ring. Manufactured to meet the demands of professional photographers and cinematographers with its solid anodised finish and precision manufacture.
The SLR Magic Rangefinder CINE Adapter is an optical device with integrated follow-focus gearing. When attached to a compatible taking lens, you’re able to override the focus control of the taking lens with the Rangefinder’s focus ring. It provides calibrated focus markings from 3’6 ft (1.1M) to Infinity. The Rangefinder CINE Adapter is recommended for users wishing to have single focus capability on the SLR Magic Anamorphot adapter (currently the 1.33×50 and the 2×50). Furthermore, it can be used to create authentic cinema-like manual focus capabilities on auto-focus lenses.
Both the SLR Magic 50mm T0.95 HyperPrime CINE lens and the Rangefinder CINE Adapter will be available from resellers at the end of Q3 with a MSRP’s of £849 / €1189 and £529 / €739 respectively.
