The Lens
that Changed

the World

The Pioneer Optics: TS/70 and HS Multi-Format Lens Series

The first Whitepoint Optics lens series uses the Hasselblad medium format glasses. It was these pioneering lenses that were used by the Apollo mission, resulting in space photography that has changed the way we see the world and ourselves.

Neo Super Baltar Lenses

Super Baltar Lenses Reborn

Released in the early 1960s, Super Baltars immediately established themselves as the optics of choice for major motion pictures and television. The Godfather I and II were both shot with Super Baltars, as was Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and the iconic TV series Star Trek.
The original optical prescriptions and blueprints used to make the original Baltars and Super Baltars were rescued from certain death in a landfill by a B&L optical engineer named Bill Peck when the company got out of the photo and cine lens business.

Optical Designer Brian Caldwell has then used years to re-manufacture the lenses to their exact original formula. The look matches the iconic Super Baltars as accurately as humanily possible.
These amazing optical cells are now engineered in high precision mechanical housing by Whitepoint Optics.
Since the glass is brand new it´s now possible to build a matching copy if more sets are needed or if the lens element is damaged.
The NEO Super Baltar lenses have a beautiful organic image with plenty of vintage character.
