Photography is one of the best ways to tell stories with pictures. Thus, manufacturers are always looking for ways to advance the quality of their cameras and lens. Sirui USA, a provider of photography equipment, has launched a new set of lenses.
The SIRUI 24mm Anamorphic Lens project is still crowdfunding on Indiegogo. While the shipping has already started ahead of the initially scheduled date of February 2021, you can still place your order.
Features of The Anamorphic Lens
For starters, this lens gives you multiple mounting options of MFT/E/X/EF-M/Z. You can mount it on Fujifilm, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic, and Canon mirrorless cameras. The lens offers a focal length of 24mm and an ultra-wide perspective of 2.4.1 ratio. It also features a lens structure of 13 elements in 0 groups. Other features include:
- 8 aperture blades;
- Maximum aperture of f/2.8;
- The focal length of 24mm;
- A cinematic widescreen of 1.33x;
- Optical lens element of oval bokeh and blue light streak;
- Weighs 770g to 810g (1.70lbs and 1.79lbs).
While you can use the lens for any photography, it is best for portrait images. You will get excellent shots when taking a portrait image and are moving to catch your subject’s facial details. With the 35mm, you can also harmonize the background and the subject.
While the horizontal information from the 24mm is quite pronounced, the subject’s height is not compromised. Besides, it has a smoother background than some of the 24mm lenses in the market.
With its wide aperture, you can always capture vivid photographs at night. The aperture’s movement ranges from F/2.8 to F/16. It gives the lens an optimum light level of brightness and sharpness that suits your needs.
The early bird price is still available at $799.00 for a 24mm, a 20% discount off the retail price of $999.00. The box comes with a 24mm anamorphic lens, a front lens cap, a rear lens cap, and a pouch. There are different super early perks of $1,349.00, $1,498, and $2,098 with two different lenses.
