You may have already seen what the new Leitz Primes can do, as they’ve been used by some of our BSC colleagues on a several high-end productions.
And now, these state-of-the-art lenses are available for hire exclusively from Shift 4 – the only UK rental company stocking them. There are 12 focal lengths available, ranging from 18mm to 180mm.
Seamus McGarvey BSC ASC ISC shot Cyrano (2021), awarding him a nomination at the BSC Awards for Best Cinematography in a Theatrical Feature; Balazs Bolygo BSC HSC used them on the Netflix series Anatomy Of A Scandal (2022); and Tony Miller BSC shot the highly anticipated Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022) , which is coming to screens in July.
The article explores what a highly regarded group of Cinematographers, DoPs, Focus Pullers and Camera Operators who joined Shift 4 for lens tests in London & Manchester thought of these lenses.
