Schneider have revealed a new set of lenses that allow you to tilt the focus plane. The Xenon FF-Prime Cine-Tilt lenses are similar to their -frame cine primes but allow you to add plus or minus 4 degrees of tilt.
That will allow users to alter the plane of focus for the ultimate in front-to-back sharpness without resorting to very small apertures which can introduce diffraction. Tilt can also be used to create the ‘miniature’ effect at wide apertures. But the limited degree of tilt – half of the tilt available of Schneider’s tilt and shift photo lenses – means this effect will be limited.
The Xenon FF-Prime Cine-Tilt optics will be available in 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm versions, all with a maximum aperture of T2.9 They will be available in a Sony E-mount this spring, although other mounts may be available later. No prices have yet been set. The press release reads:
