The lenses: 27mm- INFORMATION TO COME SOON. LENS IS AVAILABLE. 35mm T1.9 CF. 18” 1950’s Retrofocus Construction, inspired by R1 Angeniuex 35mm F2.5 57mm T1.9 CF. 19” 1940’s Biotar Construction, inspired by Asahi Takumar 55m F1.8 77mm T1.9 CF. 26” 1950’s Double-Gauss construction, inspired by Schneider Xenotar and Carl Zeiss Biotar Purpose-designed for large format motion picture imaging, B L A C K W I N G 7 prime lenses are crafted through a process of innovation and intention to create an entirely new range of custom tuned optics for contemporary film makers to use within their creative story telling. These lenses are the culmination of a unique collaboration with Oscar nominated cinematographer Bradford Young ASC and Neil Fanthom, the legendary film technologist and optical engineer from Arri Media, UK. The new BLACKWING7 lenses are Large Format T1.9 tuneable lenses based on designs from the early 20th century. There are 3 sets of lenses with varying degrees of “distress,” distortion and look. Additionally, they can be tuned-to-order to the taste of the individual cinematographer. The optical design allows for the flexibility to provide varying degrees of spherical aberration, halation, and flare. This offers varying degrees of smoothness to the in-focus image area, different amounts of focus roll off in the out-of-focus areas, and unique flare characteristics. Each focal length in the set has three variations: S (Straight), T (Transient) and X (Extreme). The lenses have been designed from the ground up with subtle distortions and edge halation that is generally seen with 1930-1950s lenses. The halation can give the lenses a look that’s even faster than the native T1.9 because it lowers contrast, fills in the shadows and accentuates the focus roll-off on faces and objects. Mixing vintage inspiration with new technology, B L A C K W I N G 7 optics have uncomplicated “old- style” lens coatings which produce vintage contrast and flare characteristics, and also a unique 14 blade iris system which allows out-of-focus highlights to remain perfectly round from T1.9 down to T22. All lenses are designed to fully cover the super 35 and full-frame 35 formats, with all but the widest BLACKWING7 lens covering the 65mm format. For more information and examples of the lens’ usage, please visit http://blackwing7.com Custom Tuned: T-tune BLACKWING7 lenses have a tuning profile which further softens the roll-off to the edge of the frame and provides increased edge detail halation. T-tuned lenses are designed to capture a slightly softer, artistic image, with a higher degree of light reactivity and flaring characteristics are harder and more prominent than with the S-toned version. This particular set has been custom tuned to my specification to enhance the edge distortion, falloff and certain flare characteristics. This is particularly noticeable when photographing faces. The custom tunings of this particular set of lenses make them entirely unique any where in the world and have been handmade to my own specification with the guidance of Neil and his team at Tribe 7.
