Laowa 7.5mm T2.9 Zero-D S35 Cine offers the widest angle of view (123°) in the Super35 line-up. Having a large aperture of T2.9 allows filmmakers to shoot under low light situations and control the depth of field, making it suitable for shooting in a limited space or for establishing shots.
The “Zero-Distortion” feature enables cinematographers to shoot with straight lines retained, resulting in impressive image quality. This design is extremely useful when shooting architectural, aerial and indoor footage.
This optical design contains 16 elements in 10 groups, including 2 ED and 2 aspherical glasses for controlling chromatic aberration to the minimal. It renders outstanding and sharp images which saves a lot of time on post-production.
The relatively short focusing distance of 25cm/ 9.84” makes it ideal for focusing on close subjects with a strong background bokeh effect.
Endowed with a lightweight body, Laowa 7.5mm T2.9 Zero-D S35 Cine is exceptionally compact and transportable, measuring 3.17” (80.7mm) long and weighing less than 1.4 lb (610g). It can easily fit onto any stabilizations system, including handheld gimbals. It is also built to have a non-dome-shaped front element which allows 77mm screw-in filters to be directly attached, making it even more user-friendly and convenient, especially if you do aerial cinematography.
