Angenieux Optimo Lenses
Pierre Angenieux was a French engineer and optician and one of the inventors of the modern zoom lens. He’s best known for introducing the Angenieux retrofocus, a wide-angle lens boasting an inverted telephoto configuration. Since 1935, Angenieux has been leading the pack in developing optimal cinematography lenses for the broadcast and film industries. The 16-40mm T2.8 PL (pictured) and 30-76mm T2.8 PL are lightweight lenses with 4K capacity, perfect for producing cinematic yet modern imagery. [Read more…]

Hasselblad has a history of making incredible cameras and lenses; however, some of its recent digital models have simply been knockoffs of Sony’s Cyber-shot and Alpha products – and ridiculously overpriced knockoffs at that.
One such camera is the Hasselblad HV, which is sold as a kit with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for a whopping $12,000 retail price tag.
Well, it’s no longer overpriced thanks to a recent $8,000 price cut, bringing the camera kit down to $3,999. This includes the Hasselblad HV body, Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 T* lens and a custom hard case with foam interior cutout.
The Sony A99 on which the Hasselblad HV is based runs $2,000 on its own and so does the Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, which puts the camera and lens at $4,000 – and Hasselblad throws in the custom hardshell case.
While the Sony A99 is long in tooth, it’s still a solid full frame camera and, who knows, maybe the Hasselblad clone will become a collector’s item some day…
