Anamorphic Ultra Wide Zoom 19-36

Anamorphic Ultra Wide Zoom 19-36

ARRI’s Anamorphic Ultra Wide Zoom AUWZ 19-36/T4.2 is a unique lens that perfectly complements the Master Anamorphics by extending the range to cover extreme wide-angle focal lengths between 19 mm and 36 mm, without any sacrifice in image quality. The telecentric optical design of the AUWZ means that it has highly uniform field illumination, from the center to the very corners of the image. Focus breathing is virtually non-existent, distortion is kept to an absolute minimum and straight lines stay straight, even at close focus. The cutting-edge lens technologies built into the AUWZ render an inverted image at the sensor plane – a side-effect of the unique design that is overcome with the simple press of a button on most high-end digital cinema cameras.

With a minimum object distance just beyond the front lens element, the AUWZ allows dramatic and highly emotive anamorphic close-ups that simply haven’t been possible before. Flares, which are very well controlled by the multilayer, anti-reflective lens coating, generate a creaminess around highlights that gives night shots an ethereal and magic quality. Built-in ARRI Lens Data System (LDS) functionality provides precise lens metadata for zoom, focus and aperture settings, simplifying complex shot-making on set and smoothing visual effects workflows in post.

Positive locking (PL) 54 mm stainless steel lens mount with Lens Data System (LDS) contacts.(2) Close Focus
Close focus is measured from the film/sensor plane.(3) Magnification Ratio
Magnification Ratio is the relationship of the size of an object on the film/sensor plane (first number) to the size of that object in real life (second number) at the close focus setting; horizontal (H) and vertical (V).(4) Length
Length is measured from the lens mount to the front of the lens housing.

(5) Length (including flange focal distance)
Length is measured from the image to the front of the lens housing.

(6) Front Diameter
Diameter of the lens/matte box interface.
