Ember Films' ZEISS Show Reel
the most part wide open
and often with extremes
of exposure, the team
was keen to capture lens
flares and silhouettes
and really put the lenses
through their paces.
Back at our offices
after filming, the postproduction
process
began. Editing in Adobe
Premier the 19 x 128GB
mags were selected and
assembled. It was going
to be tricky to cut the
film down to just a twominute show reel so the
team decided to produce
an additional, longer
edit that could allow the
shots to breathe.
Utilising
postproduction sound design
the edit team added in
atmospheres and spot
sound effects, in conjunction with
composed music to bring the location
and the story alive. An interview
session with Steve was held to create
'Steve'

Bearing in mind that these were
brand new lenses, we always wanted to
capture images that would really push
the lenses to their limits. Shooting for

a narrative backbone for
the images to tie it all
together.
The conclusion: The
result is a short film
that tells the story
of a photographer /
filmmaker who is in
tune with nature and
is seeking the perfect
image and what it takes
for him to push himself to capture that
moment.
The ZEISS CP3 lenses are beautifully
engineered and come with the optical
quality you would expect from ZEISS.
The lightweight characteristics of the
lenses allowed for more
flight time on the heavy
lift drone in the air and
the amazing aesthetics
that the lenses create
delivered
a
perfect
human story on the
ground.
Ember
is
looking
forward to adding these
lenses to its inventory and

Leica Thalia Lenses
for the Big Picture

Responding to the increasing need for character-driven, large-format
optics, CW Sonderoptic has introduced the Leica Thalia series
of prime lenses...

T

he set of nine spherical Leica Thalia lenses
provides an image circle of 60mm diagonal,
which covers ARRI Alexa 65, VistaVision, and Super
35 film and digital formats while maintaining a
consistent look and feel through all focal lengths.
The focal lengths of the lenses include 24, 30,
35, 45, 70, 100, 120, and 180mm. The lenses are
available in PL mount and offer /i Technology
metadata contacts in the mount.
The lenses maintain a 95mm front
diameter and matched focus and
iris ring locations for consistent
accessory use. For large format
lenses they are also incredibly
compact and lightweight, with
lengths between 4.9 and 6.9 inches
(124.5 to 175cm) and weighing
between 2.4 and 3.75lbs (1.06 to
1.6kg).
One of the most unique features of the
Leica Thalia lenses is their iris design, which

cont'd...

maintains a circular shape through the entire
aperture range. In addition to always being round,
the bokeh is smooth, distinct and full of character,
which helps the out of focus elements maintain
structure and shape without falling apart.

continuing a growing relationship with
ZEISS.

The show reel follows the exploits of
professional cameraman 'Steve'

Although the lenses are based on the Leica S
medium format lenses, they feature significant
optical and mechanical changes, including: increased
image circle, new coatings, new iris design, 270°
rotation cam focus mechanism, and entirely new
mechanics and housings. Additionally, the 55mm
lens is a completely new lens.
"The look of these lenses answers what we have
heard from many cinematographers, and not just
in regards to image circle," said Managing Director
Gerhard Baier.
"While they are new lenses,
they do offer many of the
characteristics
that
have
encouraged
cinematographers
to pair older lenses with digital
sensors. They are clear without
being overly sharp. Focus is
smooth and forgiving without
appearing soft. Skin tones are
natural and smooth with an
accurate color rendition."
The Leica Thalia lenses will start
delivering in Summer 2017.
