New “Look” Cooke Anamorphic – New York Test

March 30th, 2014 • by Nina • in Blog, Camera, Events

Earlier this month, Hand Held Films hosted the New York leg of a test for the new Cooke Anamorphic lenses. We were extremely happy to collaborate with Jon Fauer on his upcoming article in the Film and Digital Times on the new Anamoprhic Cooke lenses. The idea of the short film “Look” born out of this collaboration “was a day in the life of a camera prep checkout at New York rental house Handheld Films—sort of an invasion of the Yogini Camera Assistants.” Cooke graciously gave us four lenses, the 32mm, 40mm, 50mm and 75mm, of the Cooke Anamorphic/i series to play with. We are looking forward to the article which will be available in the April issue of the Film and Digital Times .

Check out our test footage “Look” for the new COOKE Anamorphic/i lenses done in collaboration with Film and Digital Times’s very own Jon Fauer presented by Hand Held Films, Cooke Optics and Goldcrest Productions. To view this in true 2k the video must be downloaded onto your computer.

“This test emphasizes technical specificities that the anamorphic exhibits which are desirable for certain shoots, such as lens breathing and particular bokeh” notes Marc Paturet, owner of Hand Held Films .

<p>"This test emphasizes technical specificities that the anamorphic exhibits which are desirable for certain shoots, such as lens breathing and particular bokeh" Marc Paturet, owner of Hand Held FIlms notes. “Another effect of the anamorphic can be seen in the way that objects enter or exit frame. When panning, you get a feel that objects entering the frame are being pulled into the center, keeping our attention focused on the key parts of the image, rather than getting lost in unnecessary details at the limit of our peripheral vision.”

 

 

On our end, we will be getting a set of five Cooke Anamorphics/i lenses by early September according to the current schedule, which will add to our already impressive inventory of anamorphic choices. Check out the result of the test in our short film “Look” below.
