Cooke Optics is set to showcase its new lenses in a mix of virtual and physical spaces at the EnergaCamerimage 2023 film festival, which takes place in Toruń, Poland, from 11 – 18 November.
The company says its latest full-frame and zoom lenses will combine with brand-new camera technology, LED wall displays, mixed reality sets and real-time CG pre-visualisation tools “to reveal the latest possibilities for modern productions” in partnership with Sony and supported by EZTrack.
On display will be a system that allows for the merging of on-set images with CG elements in real time. Presented on the 1.8x full frame Anamorphic/i and utilising Cooke’s /i technology interfaced with EZtrack’s aggregator, this demonstration will show how live, accurate in-camera anamorphic visualisation is now viable – giving cinematographers and directors the instant confidence that a shot has worked, claims the company.
In addition to Cooke’s Stand in the Market area of the main hub of the Festival at CKK Jordanki, which will present a selection of Cooke’s leading lens ranges including Panchro/i Classic FF and the new mirrorless SP3, the company will also reprise its exclusive test environment at the historic Hotel 1231 in Toruń Old Town.
Cinematographers will have the opportunity to test Cooke’s flagship S8/i Full Frame prime lenses and Varotal/i Full Frame zoom lenses with the recently announced Sony Burano full frame CineAlta camera as well as the Sony Venice 2, on a mixed reality set. Sony will also provide the latest in LED wall technology with the Crystal LED Verona.
Cooke will also run a series of Open House sessions during the festival, which awards films according to their visual, aesthetic and technical values.
