Shot on Technovision 1.5X: DP Lawrence Sher (Joker) chose the Technovision 1.5X family (7 primes, 2 zooms and 4 AproXima close focus lenses) for the shoot:

”I found what I was looking for! Over 200 lenses for the Black Adam project, the Technovision 1.5X lenses stood out!”

And Gregory Irwin, 1st AC mentioned:

“With regards to the new Technovision1.5X anamorphic lenses, P+S Technik did a very good job recreating the 1960’s Technovision look. The colour, contrast, fall off and bokeh has a beautiful, nostalgic feel to them. And they cover large sensors! I love Larry Sher’s bold idea to go with a period look for a high tech, comic book, super hero movie.”
