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.
Designed to fit in a trolley case for easy transportation the LensChecker is still offering the maximum options for lens evaluation of cine, stills and vintage lenses, up to full frame format (Image Circle).
