Primo X

Primo X is the first cinema lens specially designed for use on drones and gimbals. They are fully sealed, weather proof, and counterbalanced to be aerodynamic, and able to easily maintain a proper center of gravity. Primo X lenses come in two primes – 14mm (T3.1) and 24mm (T1.6) – and one 24-70mm zoom (T2.8). Available in 2019.

T Series Anamorphic Lenses

T Series Anamorphic Lenses

The T Series lenses build on Panavision’s long tradition of designing and developing high-quality anamorphic lenses for motion picture. They combine new optical layouts with mechanical advances from the G series, but have a larger sweet spot and focus closer than some of their predecessors. Optical features of the T Series lenses include high contrast, well balanced aberration control, excellent glare resistance, tightly controlled anamorphic squeeze ratio, and minimal breathing.
