RP Lens prime sets are an excellent and affordable choice for use with super 35mm and full-frame
cameras. These are still photographic lenses that we upgrade to work in the digital cinema world.
We hand pick these lenses from suppliers across the globe. Only choice glass is chosen.
The lenses are serviced and cleaned before they are given our Cine Upgrade.
Our Cine Upgrade (CU) consist of three parts.
• The lens mounts are taken apart and the click stops removed and the F ring is dampened, for smooth and precise cine lens like setting.
• A custom cut Black Delrin 32 pitch gear is press-fit on the focus barrel. A precise cut
insures a snug and solid fit to the barrel.
• A custom made black anodized aluminum step-up to 80mm OD or 95mm OD Lens front
is added for a match up to common matte box step-down rings. A push-on cap is provided.
All of these mounts will interchange through adapters on the lens, or adapters on the camera.
Depending on which camera or cameras you intend to use, we can supply the proper lens adapters or hard mounts of your choice.
These prime sets have been used with great success on cameras such as:
RED One, RED Epic, RED Scarlet, Sony F-3, Panasonic AF100, Canon 5D, Canon 7D, Canon c300.
RP Lens Co. pioneered the Cine Upgrade and selling of still lens sets to the digital cinema world back in 2006, when we were shooting through a spinning ground glass.
We call our used sets “Serviced / Pristine Condition” because the are. The owner, Peter, is an award winning cinematographer and takes great pride in providing these pristine sets to fellow camera people, and thoroughly enjoys consulting with them on their lens choices.
We have sold to DP's, rental houses, and film schools across the globe - from the single cameraperson in Kenya to the BBC in England. We ship anywhere in the world.
