Independent camera, lens and grip specialist, Movietech, has augmented its hire stock with the introduction of the new TLS re-housed Canon K35 series lenses, including a UK first with the T1.5 18mm.
Covering all models within the K35 range, and re-housed by industry specialist True Lens Service, these upgraded versions retain the features, feel and image capture abilities of the original Canon classic.
“The TLS variants of the Canon K35 system bring a fresh lease of life to an industry classic,” said Movietech MD John Buckley. “The addition of these units to our growing range of products will be welcomed by cinematographers from all areas of our industry.”
The family of lenses comprises 18mm, 24mm and 35mm glass featuring a dual cam system, plus 55mm and 85mm lenses, all housed in high-grade aluminium alloy and stainless steel casings, with stainless steel PL mounts, and featuring high-quality focus and iris, engraved dual focus scales and standard 110mm front ring.
Also included is a new cam-driven focus system and chassis-style lens housing to allow the attachment of electronic drives, matte boxes and other accessories to the front of the lens, without affecting focus movements in any way. The floating element movement and an extended focus scale of the dual cam system also permits rotation of almost 300-degrees.
