Cooke introduced the new Panchro/i Classic series as a result of renewed interest in the vintage Cooke Speed Panchro lenses that were originally manufactured between the 1920s and 1960s.
The new Panchro/i Classic is true to the optical character of the original Speed Panchro, recreating the same look and feel of the original with the advantage of modern glass, mechanical design and lens mounts for today’s cinematography cameras. The Panchro Classic lenses also feature the Cooke /i Technology interface for frame by frame metadata capture.
Cooke Panchro/i Classics are a particularly interesting lens choice for digital sensor cameras such as the Sony VENICE and ARRI Alexa Mini which can often benefit from a softer/more gentle visual style.
Our set of Cooke Panchro/i Classic lens set includes the 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75 & 100mm focal lengths. Please note that 152mm focal length Panchro Classic is due to arrive in August this year and will complete the set (with 8 lenses in total).
