THE COOKE LOOK
Cinematographers choose Cooke lenses for the “Cooke Look” - a sharp, subtle, smooth rendering that provides dimensionality and high contrast, and pleases the eye.
Our goal has been to deliver a smaller, lighter lens which offers the same resolution, optical quality and reliability as the S4/i, but at a lower price. We decided that the lenses should be equally suitable for shooting film and digital images up to and beyond a 4K resolution pipeline.
In addition the lenses include
Like the S4/i lenses, the MiniS4/i's are designed for motion photography and they don't breathe. The lenses are one stop slower than the S4/i, as a result they can be smaller and lighter.
All Cooke lenses are colour matched. This means MiniS4/i's by Cooke and S4/i lenses can be mixed on a shoot with full confidence that the images will match. (excerpt taken from
