I own a set of recently released Cooke Panchro/i Classic lenses. The “Cooke look” has defined so much of our intuitive understanding of what cinema should look like. This was achieved with the widespread use of the Cooke Speed Panchro lenses made from the 1920s through the 1960s in countless classic Hollywood movies. The resurgent use of these lenses has inspired Cooke to create lenses that achieve the same look from this period while incorporating modern advancements in glass coating, build quality, consistent image quality, and electronic information metadata.
The set includes six focal lengths: 18mm T2.2, 25mm T2.2, 32mm T2.2, 50mm T2.2, 75mm T2.2, and 100mm T2.6. The speed of T2.2 is comparable to f/2. The minimum focal distance for several of the focal lengths is remarkably close at under 8” from the sensor which puts the focal plane a couple inches from the front element of the lens.
This video was shot in the conference room of a production office with the objects available in the room. It was shot with a Panasonic Varicam LT at 23.98, 3840x2160 in AVC-Intra4K-LT, 10-bit. There is one clip of the liquid swirling around shot at 60fps, 3840x2160. The image was captured in v-log/v-gamut. The image was adjusted to increase brightness/contrast and saturation. However, there was no creative color grading.
