Irix Cine 15mm T2.6
Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 is a fast, ultra-wide-angle lens, designed for a variety of lighting conditions
The newest member of the family, the Irix Cine 15mm T2.6, is a fast, filter-ready ultra wide-angle lens, which makes it an extremely versatile piece of equipment that works in a multitude of lighting conditions.
The Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 optical system is made up of 15 elements arranged in 11 groups (including 3 HR lenses, 2 EDs, and 2 ASPs).
Despite the ultra-wide field of view, its precise construction will ensure beautiful and vivid colors, image sharpness and minimal distortion. The high-quality construction ensures minimal focus breathing, which is an extremely important feature in film making.
Like all Irix Cine line lenses, it is designed for flming at a maximum resolution of 8K UHD, allowing for super-panorama shots (CinemaScope).
Ready to shoot in all weather conditions
A high-class cinematic lens must work in any atmospheric condition. No matter if you are shooting on burning sand in the Sahara Desert or on the frozen peaks of the Himalayas - the Irix 15mm T2.6 is prepared to not only face it, but also to capture the best image possible. Every time. Enjoy your lens’ reliable construction with rubber seals placed in all the crucial points to ensure protection against rain or dust. Now, you can film anytime, anywhere - and seize the wondrous power of nature.
Your comfort is important! Focus and aperture marks are laser engraved and filled with UV paint. This makes them visible, even in low-light environments.
Versatility and compact in size
Irix Cine lenses are some of the most compact and lightest film lenses covering the full frame format. The housing is made of a lightweight and impact-resistant aluminum-magnesium alloy which has been successfully used and tested in the Irix Blackstone still lenses. Thanks to the low weight (every Irix Cine lens weighs about 1.1 kilograms / 2,4lbs), they can be used on smaller cameras on handheld rigs or stabilizers as well as on professional setups. In order to achieve greater comfort while working with follow focus systems, the Irix Cine lenses are equipped with a lens support foot. Depending on your needs, this support foot can be attached to the lower or upper part of the lens.
In the eyes of a camera operator, a good and tough housing is of major importance. Irix is known for fine mechanical constructions, and in the Cine range we pushed this even further, focussing on superb operation ergonomics and a high precision mechanism.
Quiet and smooth rotation of the focus ring was achieved thanks to the new MST lens positioning system – created specially for the Irix Cine range.
The Multi Start Thread mechanism, in combination with a sealed housing, ensures durable and long-term operation of the lens in various atmospheric conditions even in the most demanding situations. The rotation angle of the focus ring is increased to 180 degrees, which makes focusing easy and accurate at any range.
Unique design and well thought-out ergonomics
The side edges of the focus gear-rings are shielded by a special adaptive ring, providing a larger area for better manual handling – whilst still compatible with follow-focus systems.
The adaptive ring is an innovative solution that provides compatibility with follow focus gear rings of various width, while preserving the convenience of manual focus ring operation. For more ease of setting the follow focus mechanism, the adaptive ring turns at the full angle with a steps of 15 degrees.
The markings on the lens are laser engraved and treated with UV fluorescent paint, to improve the readability in low light conditions.
Created to be part of the cine gear family
Irix Cine lenses have standardized front diameter 95mm for matte box, a 86mm front filter thread, unified distance between gear-rings within the whole family range (future developments), standardized 0,8 pitch module gears, unified angles of rotation, and similar weight.
The Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 lens is equipped with a removable support foot with a 1/4 thread, which stabilizes the lens when using a follow focus system, and protects the camera mount. The support foot can be attached on the bottom or top of the lens for convenience of use.
Innovation as standard
The exceptional functionality and innovative solutions are a distinctive feature of all Irix products.
As all our Cine lenses, this lens has also been equipped with a unique Magnetic Mount System for accessories.
The MMS system allows quick and easy attachment of variety dedicated accessories. The first of the new MMS accessories is the detachable and reversible lens hood (included with a lens). More accessories coming soon.
