We are pleased to announce that we now have several vintage 35mm PL Mount lens sets available for rent
To help you find them, we have added a new “Vintage Lens Rentals” section to the site.
Here’s an overview of some of the featured vintage lens sets we are renting:
1. Bausch & Lomb Super Baltar Set
The Super Baltar lenses are considered vintage and are from the 1950’s. They can’t compare with modern glass in the way of sharpness, instead the lenses give you a soft look, almost like you are using a Black Pro-Mist filter. Plenty of flare.
Check out the Super Baltar rental page.
2. Canon K-35 Lens Set
These Canon K-35 are fast, vintage cinema lenses from the 70’s. They were used to shoot the 1986 film, Aliens. They are not as sharp as modern lenses, but they offer great contrast.
Check out the Canon K-35 rental page.
3. Cooke Speed Panchro
The Cooke Speed Panchros were used by Kubrick, Cassavetes, and many other Hollywood directors.
They give the classic “Cooke look”, “a sharp, subtle, smooth rendering that provides dimensionality and high contrast, and pleases the eye”. The look has also been described as “warm and romantic”. So if you’re looking for that beautiful classic film look, the Cooke Speed Panchros will not let you down.
Check out the Cooke Speed Panchro page.
All of these vintage lens sets are available for local rental in Los Angeles, or we can ship Nationwide for productions shooting across the country.
