Rokinon Xeen 14mm T3.1
Filmmaking lenses in Rokinon’s Xeen line
feature dual-sided focus and iris scales so that
operators on either side of the lens can view
them. The focus and iris gears are industry
standard and can be found in the same
position on all of the Xeen lenses. The 14mm
is fully manual (both focus and aperture)
and uses a multi-coating to reduce flare and
ghosting. It has a minimum focusing distance
of 11 inches. The lens is sold in Canon, Nikon,
Sony E, PL and Micro Four Thirds mounts.
FUJINON MK18-55mm T2.9
This cinema lens maintains a constant T2.9
aperture throughout its zoom range. It offers
manual iris control and a 200-degree focus
rotation for smooth focus pulling. There are
three identically placed gear rings for focus,
iris and zoom, a macro function and a
Flange Focal Distance adjustment function.
It features a minimum object distance of
2.78 feet. It’s sold in a Sony E-mount.
Xenon 100mm T2.1 E-Mount
Schneider Optics has jumped on the
E-mount bandwagon with its Xenon cinema
lenses. You’ll enjoy a 300-degree rotation
of the manual focus ring for smooth and
precise focusing. Anti-reflection coatings
keep lens flare at bay. The 100mm T2.1
lens can focus on objects as close as 1
meter. It boasts 14 aperture blades.

Canon Cinema eoS C200B
The C200 aims to ease filmmakers into the high-
dynamic-range era. It records 4K (4096 x 2160)
video via an 8.85-megapixel, Super 35mm-sized
CMOS sensor with a sensitivity range of 160-25,600
(expandable to 100 and 102,400). It delivers 13
stops of dynamic range and supports two new 4K
file formats designed, in Canon’s words, to make
“HDR recording more accessible to filmmakers.”
The C200B model is a body-only unit.
olympuS e-m1 mark ii
This camera competes with the GH5 for the hybrid shooter looking
to split time between serious video recording and still work. If the
GH5 is tuned a bit more to video, the Mark II is a bit more tuned
to stills, but it is nonetheless a capable video camera. Thanks to its
in-body image stabilization, you can get excellent handheld footage.
You can record 4K at 4096 × 2160/24p or 3840 x 2160/30p with clean
HDMI output, focus peaking and time code.
