InCooke S4’s are well-known throughout the industry for their superb optical and mechanical performance. In addition, their control of flare, distortion and spherical aberrations is renowned. Finally, the lenses feature Cooke’s unique warmth and gentle focus falloff. This results in gently flatterer faces and skin tones.
S4/i’s feature /i technology which provide cinematographers and operators with lens data. For example, focus distance, aperture, depth of field, hyper-focal distance, serial number, owner data, lens type and focal length.
