During the 12th International Trade Fair Cine Equipment and Technology (cinec) 2018 the P+S TECHNIK LensChecker (developed in cooperation with StarKISH) was honored with a cinecAward.
Among 35 nominees in the field of film technology the jury of CineTechnik Bayern e.V. association awarded P+S TECHNIK (besides eight other laureates) during a ceremony on Sunday 23 September in Munich. Andreas Dasser and Sadhvani Kish, the inventors of the LensChecker, received the price together with Anna Piffl, CEO, P+S TECHNIK.
“After the first presentation of our LensChecker at IBC and cinec 2016 we quickly realized the industry’s need for a small and portable lens testing tool with exemplars of the LensChecker being shipped all around the world”, as Andreas Dasser, head of R&D, stated on Sunday. “The cinecAward finally acknowledges our passion for innovation as the LensChecker was upon its release the first of its kind”, he followed.
The LensChecker is a small, compact and mobile tool to evaluate lenses by projection without having access to a fully equipped optics service department. It supports a wide range of different lens mounts such as Arri LPL, Arri PL, BNC-R, B4, C-Mount, Canon EF, Canon FD, Leica M, Leica R, Nikon F and Panavision.
The LensChecker has been developed in cooperation with StarKish and is manufactured at P+S TECHNIK in Ottobrunn, Germany.

Firstlight Evolution 2X 32mm
We are proud to present the first beautiful images of the wide angle Evolution 2X 32mm lens: https://vimeo.com/289442426
The Evolution 2X lenses are matching the vintage KOWA Anamorphics. The Evolution 2X lenses are probably the most compact anamorphic cine lenses on the market and consist of the original four focal lengths 40, 50, 75 and 100mm. To expand the creative potential of filmmakers around the world we added one wide angle 32mm lens as well as a tele 135mm lens which were both presented at IBC Show 2018.

P+S TECHNIK, world leader for rehousing and servicing lenses, announce the remake of the vintage KOWA Anamorphic lenses.
Sample lens is on display at Cine Gear Expo 2017, booth 83. The P+S TECHNIK Anamorphic Evolution lenses are based on the original optical design of the KOWA Anamorphic and the P+S TECHNIK's sturdy, but rehousing for KOWA Anamorphic lenses.
The original KOWA Anamorphic prime lenses have been produced until the 1970s and usually for four different primes are available: 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm. We got the feedback that the original focal range is limited so we added two additional focal length, a wide-angle and a telephoto 135mm, which match the Look of the original set. So we named them Evolution lenses. says Alfred Piffl, founder of P+S TECHNIK and continues We aim to offer the cinematographer professional products to tell stories - (e)motion pictures - whether published on silver screen, television or video stream. CinemaScope or wide screen is a wonderful format visualizing stories.
P+S TECHNIK, world leading company for rehousing vintage and stills lenses from Germany, has shipped the first sets of completely rehoused Kowa Anamorphic lenses.
The rehousing includes new internal focus mechanics as well as new housing, but stays close to the original compact form factor and light weight of the Kowa Anamorphic primes. In addition, P+S TECHNIK offers optical spare such as the front anamorphic lens group. Together with the mechanical parts of the rehousing, the Munich-based cine equipment manufacture is now able to offer service and repair for all kinds of damages of the valuable Kowa Anamorphic lenses.
The KOWA Anamorphic prime lenses have been produced until the 1970s. In general for four different focal lengths are available for which P+S TECHNIK offers lens rehousing: 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm. They are rare and popular because of their small size and compact form factor. That’s why they are ideal for handheld, Steadicam or drone camera work. They are low in contrast and warm in color and can be made to flare easily. The flare is warmer in color rather than the standard blue anamorphic flare.
