From the very first moment the idea was born, lens-maker Irix knew that the Cine 150mm camera lens was to be its most versatile and advanced tool for a filmmaking artist yet.
Irix’s goal was for it to comprise functionality, stunning visuals, and outstanding performance in any environment – allowing filmmakers to discover completely new areas in film image creation.
The Irix Cine 150mm, with its short telephoto focal length and leading parameters, is equipped with everything both professional and amateur cinematographers would need to create their masterpieces – with numerous functionalities and features bringing variety and uniqueness to your shots.
Smooth bokeh, with 11 rounded aperture blades
Where does the border between fantasy and reality lie? Macro wouldn’t be what it is without a dreamlike blur that makes the vital parts of your shot really pop. While designing the 150mm Cine, Irix paid the utmost attention to its aperture mechanism design.
A system of eleven aperture blades provides a soft, delicate bokeh within the whole range of aperture values – while the rounded shape of the aperture minimizes the diffraction, resulting in sharp, detailed images.
Alternatively, drop your actors out of focus to truly bring out the emotion onscreen, using a soft, blurry veil to craft one-of-a-kind cinematic shots that won’t be easily forgotten. Thanks to the Irix Cine 150mm, every single scene should enchant the audience.
Sealed to withstand it all
Has your shot ever suffered due to unpredictable atmospheric conditions? How many times did sudden rain or snow ruin your perfect setup?
While shooting, you have to fully believe in the equipment you’re working with: it has to be sturdy, reliable and lasting. That’s why the lens housing of the Irix Cine 150 mm T3.0 Macro 1:1 is equipped with five rubber seals (four in the PL-mount version) and other sealing solutions, creating a durable barrier for dust, rain or accidental splashes of water.
A sealed construction ensures the safety of both the optical lens system and the camera sensor – meaning the only thing that needs your attention while working are the shots themselves, allowing you to actually immerse yourself in the moment.
Magnetic mount system
One of the features that sets the Irix Cine apart is its MMS, or Magnetic Mount System (patent currently pending).
Designed especially for Irix Cine products, the MMS is a completely new system that ensures a reliable and easy mounting of accessories, making a potentially arduous attachment process now instantaneous and effortless.
Why spend precious moments of your life fixing the mount, when you could simply take advantage of a well-balanced magnetic force system? Irix’s MMS system is also being planned for other functional accessories the company plans to release and develop down the line.
