When it comes to cinematic storytelling, anamorphic lenses add a unique visual magic, capturing wider horizons and distinctive bokeh. ARRI offers two distinct lens series cater to these desires: the renowned Master Prime lenses and the dedicated Master Anamorphic series. Let’s unravel the differences and guide you towards your ideal creative vision.

Master Prime: Cinematic Sharpness, Classic Rendering

  • Sharply Defined: Renowned for their exceptional sharpness across the entire focal range, these lenses deliver unparalleled clarity and detail.
  • Naturalistic Aesthetic: They produce a classic, unadulterated image with minimal distortion, perfect for realistic and grounded storytelling.
  • Fast and Adaptable: With a consistent T1.3 aperture, they excel in low-light situations and offer superb control over depth of field.
  • Super 35 Coverage: Primarily designed for Super 35 sensors, they excel in traditional cinematic formats.

Master Anamorphic: Embracing the Widescreen Charm

  • True Anamorphic Experience: Designed specifically for anamorphic format, they capture a wider field of view for expansive cinematic vistas.
  • Distinct Bokeh: The elliptical bokeh shapes add a dreamy, characteristic beauty to out-of-focus areas.
  • Controlled Lens Flares: Anamorphic flares add a unique visual signature, enhancing the atmosphere and mood of your scenes.
  • Super 35 Compatibility: Compatible with Super 35 sensors, offering the anamorphic look in a versatile format.

Choosing the Right Tool for Your Vision:

Master Prime is your choice if:

  • You prioritize razor-sharp, undistorted images.
  • You value a classic, naturalistic aesthetic.
  • You primarily work with Super 35 cameras.
  • You seek versatility and adaptability across various projects.

Master Anamorphic is your choice if:

  • You yearn for the wider horizons and unique aesthetics of anamorphic format.
  • You desire distinctive bokeh shapes and controlled lens flares.
  • You work with Super 35 cameras and embrace the anamorphic look.
  • You want to add a dreamlike, cinematic quality to your storytelling.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I use Master Prime lenses for anamorphic filming?

A: While they capture a large image circle, they are not true anamorphic lenses and won’t achieve the distinct visual characteristics of the Master Anamorphic series.

Q: Are Master Anamorphic lenses sharper than Master Prime lenses?

A: Both series deliver exceptional sharpness, but Master Prime lenses might have a slight edge due to their simpler optical design.

Q: Can I use Master Anamorphic lenses on full-frame cameras?

A: Yes, but with an adapter and potential vignetting. Consider full-frame anamorphic lenses for native coverage.

Q: Which series is more expensive?

A: Master Anamorphic lenses typically carry a higher price tag due to their specialized design and anamorphic capabilities.
