Schneider-Kreuznach - Stand 128

Lenses and filters to pursue your creativity

Whether on set or in the studios, Schneider-Kreuznach lenses and filters always set standards in filmmaking. Developed and manufactured in Germany or the USA, their reputation is well-respected all over the world. We are proud to have been recognized with dozens of prestigious industry honors including the Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Schneider-Kreuznach Cine Lenses – More than a sharp image

Schneider-Kreuznach lenses are the high-quality tool for professional and creative filming. These lenses impress with excellent imaging quality, very low distortion and the harmonious image of uncertain elements in the background.

Our Xenon Full Frame Prime Lenses – a set of matched professional primes, purpose-built from scratch for the demands of today and tomorrow`s cinematography. These German-made optics offer outstanding image quality yet are ruggedly built to withstand the daily rigors of a working set.
The Xenon Full Frame Prime Lens family currently includes 18 mm T2.4, 25 mm T2.1, 35 mm T2.1, 50 mm T2.1, 75 mm T2.1 and 100 mm T2.1 focal lengths.

Each lens offers an all new optical and mechanical design for outstanding operation and performance as well as rugged reliability. The circular 14-blade aperture is specially engineered for a smooth and consistent bokeh. The precision cam driven constant volume focusing design ensures that breathing is minimized. And with a 300-degree barrel rotation, the manual focus markings offer accuracy and repeatability. Additionally all lenses are color-matched for consistency.

Engineered for compatibility with industry standard cine-style accessories like follow focus rigs and matte boxes, the Xenon Full Frame Primes feature identical external dimensions and positioning of focus and gear rings in each focal length. Operators appreciate using the oversized focus and distance scales that are readable on both sides of the lens. To accommodate filters and other accessories, each lens has a 100 mm front diameter and a standard 95 mm thread.

Schneider-Kreuznach Motion Picture and Television Filters – Putting more impact into your images

Schneider-Kreuznach represents also a long history of extraordinary filters for many industries including still photography, high definition, television broadcasting, cinematography, and digital projection. It’s no wonder Schneider-Kreuznach filters for motion pictures and digital cinematography are the finest in the industry.

Our Technical Filters can provide optical solutions for technical problems involving exposure, dynamic range, depth-of-field, color and saturation, refection control and many other imaging problems.

e.g. Schneider-Kreuznach RHOdium FSND filters answers the cinematographer’s call for a truly neutral ND that attenuates light evenly from the near ultra-violet (important for film) through the full visible spectrum and into the near infra-red. 

Our Diffusion Filters can enhance the emotional impact of images by softening fine details, adding a warm glow to highlights and other effects.

e.g. The Radiant Soft series expands Schneider-Kreuznach’s diffusion filter line, bringing cinematographers and photographers the ability to give their subject’s skin a radiant, soft glow, while still having control over the contrast, as well as controlling the highlights with very little blooming effect.

Our Sensational Filters can create visually sensational effects, producing brilliant streaks, intense color, magnify minute details, and over-the-top diffusion effects, and more.

e.g. The True-Streak filter line – Clearly the most effective and exciting way to simulate the anarmorphic streak effect with virtually any lens, anamorphic or not.

Revolutionary lenses for the era of
high resolution digital cinematography

Performance born of SIGMA’s experience in ultra-high megapixel digital photography— now ready to take on every challenge in the world of cinematography.

In the new era of high-resolution movie production, the arrival of reasonably priced, high-performance digital cinema cameras has changed the standard of what makes an excellent product in the industry and has expanded the freedom and potential of movie production. At the same time, when it comes to cine lenses, price and brand recognition are still often taken as proof of performance, which ends up being proportional to the production budget. In contrast to consumer products, professional cinema equipment is by its nature difficult to manufacture in volume, in turn causing lens R&D and innovations in manufacturing technology to lag behind progress in cameras. But SIGMA is different. Responding to the demanding requirements for lenses in the era of ultra-high megapixel still photography, SIGMA has developed the technologies required to produce high-performance lenses in volume. They have what it takes to offer a new solution to the cine lens market.

A lineup offering an astonishing combination of specifications and value— all thanks to our ultra-efficient vertically integrated production system.

At SIGMA’s sole production site, the Aizu factory, they perform nearly all processes in-house, from parts and mold production to final lens assembly. This vertically integrated production system comprises both product development and manufacturing, making it a true one-stop resource. Their artisans bring expertise and skill together at the highest level in the pursuit of outstanding optical performance, while their suite of leading-edge manufacturing technologies make possible ultra-efficient, highly precise volume production. Offering a full lineup that delivers compact design and maximum optical performance at minimal cost. A lineup that satisfies every professional film making need while expanding the freedom and potential of cinematography. A lineup that leverages minimal equipment and investment to maximum results. With the goal of providing uniquely innovative lenses and unprecedented value, SIGMA has developed its new line of cine lenses

100% retained: ultra-high-performance optical system

SIGMA has combined the highest level of optical performance with compact design while keeping the cost of development and production to a minimum. SIGMA has played the leading role in the current era of 50-megapixel-plus ultra-high resolution still photography. Now, in the realm of cine lenses, SIGMA is leveraging the outstanding optical performance of its Global Vision still lens lineup, which has been acclaimed by photographers around the world. Featuring the same high-quality optical components including lens cells and aperture mechanisms, these cine lenses deliver the highest level of optical performance and amazing value

100% new: mechanical structure

While retaining the same superb optical system, SIGMA’s cine lenses feature a completely updated mechanical structure. Supported by this new design, the optimized specification includes all of the essential functions required for modern cinematography. Since its foundation, SIGMA has believed in achieving top performance via high-precision parts.
This principle and SIGMA’s leading-edge manufacturing technologies have made possible ultra-high-efficiency mass production of these new lens lines.
