MODERN OPTICS WITH A RETRO LOOK
Capable of high resolution, the Chameleons have the distinctive aberrations one would expect from anamorphic lenses, but with a subtle elegance. The flare characteristic is reminiscent of anamorphic lenses of yesteryear, though show restraint and are readily controllable. The 1.79x anamorphic squeeze ratio is the perfect balance of anamorphic look and maximal use of sensor area. Having two series with different image circles allows the cinematographer to embrace character and edge aberrations, or opt for a cleaner, more restrained image, depending on the shot or project.
