NAB 2014: Schneider Optics Opens Up Its Lens Lineups

Four standing lenses and two facing out

Schneider Optics adds Xenon FF-Prime lenses in three focal lengths, 18mm, 25mm and 100mm. If you like video production, your favorite measurements might be for lenses. Being tailor made is a big deal for videographers, so Schneider Optics points out that the related cinema cameras are by ARRI, Canon, RED, and Sony as well as DSLRs like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Nikon D800. This is a clear direction for anyone aiming to shoot 4K video at 4096x2304, and practically doubles their present products from that line.

Brand new from Schneider Optics is the Wide Angle adapter for Fujinon 19-90mm Cabrio lens, essentially giving you 30 percent more lens. On the note of modifying devices that you may already be using, Schneider Optics adds to its iPro offerings. A new Clip for the iPad, iPad Mini, Mini Retina, and iPad Air allows access to macro, telephoto and wide angle iPro lenses. You'll now have an easier time transitioning your lenses for your smartphone to your tablet, it's like bringing the same mount to all your cameras. We always like to recall that though the camera body may change, glass remains valuable.

Be sure to go to Schneider Optics for prices and a list of options for those of us that only hope to rent from the Cine-Xenar III line.
