Irix Stand 104

A fledgling member of the cine lens fraternity perhaps, but Irix has still amassed an impressive range of optics in a relatively short period of time. The current crop comprises six 8K-ready optics ranging from 11 to 150mm, that can either be bought singly or in one of three sets: Entry, Extreme and Production. The most recent addition is the full-frame 21mm T1.5 which, like all Irix Cine optics, has a front size of 95mm and geared Mod 0.8 M rings. This ensures compatibility with most accessories available on the market.

Sigma Stand 402

LCA Stand 208

With a rich optical history, Sigma Cines are available in four ranges – and Euro Cine Expo is the best place to discover them. Compatible with a full-frame image sensor, the FF Zoom Line offers the outstanding optical performance required for high-resolution shooting in 6K to 8K. Similarly, optics in the High Speed Zoom Line offer a constant aperture of T2 throughout the zoom range. If it’s primes you’re after, the High Speed Prime Line claims cutting-edge performance on all its optics, from 14 to 135mm.

The self-proclaimed one-stop shop for all film and TV lighting needs, LCA has been in Germany since September 2021 – opening a state-of-the-art showroom in Berlin late last year, to complement branches in Paris and High Wycombe. Euro Cine Expo sees the company show off the new Auroris: with 24 large format pixels, this 3x3m LED fixture is ultra-slim, with cinema-quality white light, full-spectrum colour and a range of accessories. Alongside that will be lighting from a range of manufacturers like Creamsource, Litepanels and Dedolight, as well as grip kit from Manfrotto and more.

Leitz Stand 318

One of the world’s leading premium cine lens manufacturers, Leitz is offering Euro Cinegoers the chance to view its line-up of full-frame optics, including stunning zooms, high-speed primes and recently announced, character-rich Elsie primes. Taking the name of Ernst Leitz’s granddaughter, the range comprises 13 lenses between 15 and 150mm. Each one features a T2.1 aperture, designed from

the ground up as premium cine glass with full-frame performance and consistency in size and speed, to serve a broad variety of productions.
