All of our Panchro Prime lenses are supplied with /i Technology, and are
designed for all PL mounted professional motion picture film and electronic cameras.
Incorporating /i Technology to capture lens metadata saves post production teams/visual effects artists hours of time in post production by eliminating the need to guess lens parameters and camera information.
/i Technology provides cinematographers and camera operators with vital information on lens setting, focusing distance, aperture and depth-of-field, hyperfocal distance, serial number, owner data, lens type and focal length in both metric and footage measurements. For zoom lenses, the zoom position is displayed. Significantly, all the information is captured downstream for use in postproduction.
A brand new design
In order to build everything we wanted into the new lenses we needed a brand new design, built on our 100 years of experience of what works for filmmakers. These are 100% Cooke products manufactured by us to our traditional high standards in Leicester, England. Panchro by Cooke is not a modified or re-badged externally-sourced product. You choose Cooke, you get Cooke.
