Small and lightweight lens, a perfect fit for the recent video filming trend
The XEEN CF cine prime lens line-up was first introduced in September 2019. Reflecting the 'compact', and 'lightweight' video equipment trend along with the outstanding definition, the XEEN CF is the first full-frame cinema lens that uses carbon fiber, which is lighter than metal but is sturdier.
The XEEN CF supports large image sensors installed in the latest movie cameras and is compatible with PL, Sony E, and Canon EF mounts. It is also easily compatible with equipment such as drones and gimbals, enabling flexible equipment operation. Also, carbon fiber has been used for lightweight while maintaining durability, adding luxury through future-oriented design.
Carbon Fiber - Compact & Flexible
By applying carbon fiber, which is lighter than metal but solid and beautiful, to the lens body tube, it remains lightweight while maintaining durability. It is designed to be small and light so it can be mounted on numerous cameras and used more flexibly in a variety of environments.
8K & Cinematic look
It has an outstanding resolution supporting a large image sensor and 8K. Additionally, it offers beautiful bokeh with a T2.2 aperture and maximizes the delicate emotions of people while richly depicting the shot.
Applying our proprietary X-coating technology, it effectively controls the reflection of light inside and within the lens itself to create a distinctive look. Properly utilizing flares and ghosting, you can create dramatic effects.
The front aperture(95mm), focus, and aperture ring gear positions are unified, making it easy and convenient to attach and detach lens accessories such as matt box and follow focus. In addition, the ultra-bright luminous font allows for convenient use in dark environments.
