The THALIA prime lenses offer a consistently cinematic look and feel throughout the range of 6 lenses from 30 mm to 180 mm with an image circle of 60 mm. The lenses are incredibly lightweight and compact with a matched front diameter of 95 mm and are available in PL, LPL and XPL mount with Cooke/i Technology metadata contacts. The unique always-round iris design creates a bokeh that is smooth, distinct and full of character. And although these are not vintage lenses, the THALIAs offer many of the characteristics that have led cinematographers to pair older lenses with digital sensors. They are smooth, forgiving, and clear without being overly sharp.
The THALIA lenses offer a large image circle that covers sensors up to the ARRI ALEXA 65, but can be used to create equally stunning images on VistaVision and Super 35 sensors and film stocks as well.
Images captured with the THALIA lenses can appear to have an added depth and dimensionality, especially on larger sensors, due to a gradual focus fall off curve. Rather than even, flat layers of focus across the frame, the THALIA lenses have a sharp and focused center with gradual and pleasing fall off of contrast and light towards the edges leading the view to the image center as well as adding dimensionality to the scene. Different from most images created with modern lenses.
Although the THALIA lenses are new lenses, they do offer many of the image characteristics that have driven cinematographers to pair older lenses with digital sensors. They are clear without being overly sharp and focus is smooth and forgiving without looking soft. Skin tones are natural and smooth with accurate color rendition.The innovative iris design of the THALIA lenses maintains a circular iris through all aperture stops, creating a cinematic bokeh that comes alive with character. Out-of-focus elements maintain their structure, which further adds to the sense of dimensionality in the image.
