History of Super Baltar Lenses – Legendary movie lens
Released in the early 1960s, Super Baltar lenses immediately established themselves as the cine lens 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 Baltar and Super Baltar lenses 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 Baltar lenses as accurately as humanily possible.
