WHITEPOINT OPTICS LOMOCRON SET FOR SALE!
LOMOCRON TEST FOOTAGE
Leica lenses are considered some of the best lenses ever produced and have remained highly popular on top end cinematography and stills photography. The lens characteristics are subtle, they are fast, very sharp and uniform in quality.
Leica-R lenses have a large image circle, they are lightweight and reasonably prized.
The compact size make them ideal to use in companion with Lomo anamorphic optical block. Leica-R brings the very best out of the Lomo.
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS
Our re-engineering process gives your vintage lenses a new life.
All the lens elements are removed from their original optical blocks and cleaned throughout. After cleaning they are assembled into a new optical construction. Iris is replaced with a new full round one with matte black coating for maximum contrast and superb bokeh. The outcome is a fully re-engineered product with modern cine mechanics.
• Optics throughout cleaned
• Cam Form Focus drive optimized for modern motors
• Matched focus/iris ring locations
• Robust aluminium construction
• 300 degree focus rotation
• Industry standard sized front diameter, 110mm (except 35mm 125mm)
