The “Irix Look”
Cine lenses are designed to provide the substance. They are supposed to have that “special look, unidentified special thing, that makes the movie stand out. Irix lenses come with their own cinematic look, the “Irix look”.
Round shaped blade, and shallow depth of field, will cut your subject from the background. The unique bokeh draws the contours of your subject to make them stand out. The soft highlights and subtle mist will smooth out those light streaks, that show up on other lenses, providing footage that will be stunning in every frame.
Ready for any weather conditions
Rain or shine. The rugged and durable construction of the Irix Cine 21mm guarantees that you can keep on working with whatever weather throws at you. The lens is resistant to rain, sand, and dust. So you can take it for your next adventure in a desert or jungle if your camera can handle those environments. Engraved markings on the lens have been filled with UV-reactive paint, thanks to which filming in difficult lighting conditions becomes much easier.
Catch every moment
The 21mm lens gives freedom to your creativity. It’s wide, but not wide enough to cause distortion. With this focal length, all proportions are kept and your subject will look exactly like you see them compared to wider lenses. With those characteristics, the lens works great for tight spaces, where we need to shoot, for example, people.
Whether cruising with your gimbal between dancing people during a wedding or shooting an action scene, where we want to get really close, the image will look like many more narrow lenses. Getting this close was for example in the movie Revenant. There DOP Emmanuel Lubezki was able to get really dynamic shots and make the viewer feel like they are right there with the actors thanks to lenses of similar focal lengths as 21mm.
The fast T1.5 opens up unlimited possibilities to shoot in any light conditions without going too high on your ISO, also providing a bokeh that will stand out and the weather sealing protects the lens in any weather conditions.
The T1.5 set
21mm will be our widest lens, that matches the 30 and 45mm with T1.5, allowing for consistent shooting on a wide-open aperture. With such a wide lens you can achieve amazing bokeh, and easily match all the colors, contrast, and brightness with 30mm and 45mm.
