Cooke Panchro Uncoated Footage

If you're looking for an “organic aesthetic” this is the lens package for you.  Giving you a vintage look without the fear of falling apart because they are newer than other lenses that give you comparable results. To increase the dreamy effect even more, we used a set of ultracons as well. These handy Mini S4 primes have uncoated front and rear elements. Take a look at some of the screenshots as well as the reel to get a glimpse of the low contrast, softer detail, and increased flare distinctiveness that result from the use of uncoated elements.

The lenses we used for both projects were: 18mm, 25mm, 32mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm. It's important to note that if you are shooting on a RED Epic you'll want to consider snagging a different matte box. We rented the Arri LMB-5 4x5.65 Clip-On Mattebox System. Cheap and worth it.
