XEEN CF 24mm

Samyang have announced the world's first carbon fibre XEEN Prime Cine lens lineup.

The Samyang CF Cine Prime full-frame lens range will feature 16mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm optics.

Reflecting the current trend in 'compact and lightweight' video equipment, along with outstanding definition, XEEN CF models are the first full-frame cinema lenses which incorporate carbon fibre (lighter and stronger than metal) into the lens barrel. They also feature luminous scale markings in a new, clearly visible font.

XEEN CF lenses support 8K and full-frame (large format) image sensors installed in the latest movie cameras and will be available in PL, Sony E and Canon EF mounts. They are also compatible with equipment such as drones and gimbals, enabling truly flexible equipment operation. Carbon fibre has been used for its light weight, whilst adding durability and luxury through future-orientated design.

Look & feel - beautifully conveying delicate expression

With 8K support and unique X-Coating technology, the lenses themselves provide uncompromising clarity and detail, which can be effectively controlled to create a distinctive smooth and cinematic look (even with flare and ghosting for dramatic effects). Delicate emotions of figures can be maximised, whilst still showing rich depiction. The bright T1.5 aperture value and 11-bladed diaphragms produce excellent low-light performance and beautiful bokeh.

The XEEN CF range offers five angles-of-view, most commonly used in producing feature films: The 24mm, 50mm and 85mm versions will be available in the third quarter of 2019, followed by the 16mm and 35mm models during the first half of 2020. They will be unveiled for the first time at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands from 13-17th September 2019.
