The Cooke Anamorphic /i Look
All of the anamorphic lens characteristics demanded by filmmakers today -with the Cooke Look® and oval bokeh. That’s the Cooke Anamorphic /i lens Look.
With the Anamorphic lens, images are beautifully rendered for film and suited for use with digital cameras. The Anamorphic lenses correct aberrations exceptionally well over the entire image area – astigmatism, lateral and longitudinal colour – that will render shape, form and soul to your images.
While the "look" is crucial, precision engineering and seamless integration with other equipment is equally important. The Anamorphic /i, T2.3 prime lens in eight focal lengths are colour matched to our S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i prime lenses.
The Anamophic /i lenses offer superb optical and mechanical performance. Distortion, veiling glare, flares, and all aberrations are controlled at all apertures over the whole field of view. Like our S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i prime lenses, the cam focus mechanism allows for smooth focus adjustments in the Anamorphic /i lenses. Modular construction increases ease of maintenance and serviceability. The Anamorphic /i lenses are designed and made by Cooke Optics to their traditional high standards in Leicester, England.

The Anamophic lens optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration.
Accessible via cable connector near the lens mount and contacts in mount that sync with /i compatible cameras and accessories.
All Cooke Anamorphic /i prime lenses are colour balanced to a specification Cooke 5/i, S4/i miniS4/i.
All Cooke Anamorphic /i primes lenses have a true T2.3 aperture and cover Super 35mm format.
Every index mark is labelled. More detailed markings allow for more detailed focus control.
Our Academy Award® winning cam-style focus movement coupled with the added benefit of a large Anamorphic lens barrel diameter, has allowed for an increased number of focus markings, particularly at close focus. Spherical aberration has been controlled throughout the range of focal lengths to eliminate compensation of changes in back focus with aperture. A four-point contact bearing provides a smooth positive backlash-free movement.
Arriflex PL Mount with i/ Technology contact on all Anamorphic /i lenses.
Large, clear numerals on both sides of the focus barrel benefit the focus puller when shooting under difficult lighting conditions.
Cooke Anamorphic /i prime lenses have a common fixed front diameter of 110mm with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 mod and an iris drive gear of 114T x 0.8. * New 65mm Macro front diameter is 136mm
A scratch resistant PTFE hard anodised finish is provided on all Cooke lenses, providing a durable, hard-wearing surface to meet the most demanding environmental conditions.
