NAB 2016: Band Pro IB/E Raptor FF Prime Lenses

NAB 2016: Band Pro IB/E Raptor FF Prime Lenses

On December 10th, at Band Pro’s One World Open House, Band Pro debuted a new joint product between themselves and IB/E: the RaptorFF Prime Lenses. At NAB 2016, they showed them for the first time to great acclaim. Available this summer, the new Raptor Lenses will be available in 3 focal lengths: 100mm, 150mm, and 180mm. 

The lenses feature full frame (24mm x 36mm) coverage, 1:1 magnification, consistent T-stop T2.9, as well as robust and durable cine mechanics.

We were able to speak to Randy Wedick of Band Pro about the lenses. Check out the interview here:

The new macro lenses were designed to address the industry-wide movement toward larger format sensors (including RED Weapon 6K and 8K, Sony A7, and ARRI ALEXA 65 cameras).

These larger sensors deliver a convincing film-look and interesting bokeh due to their very shallow depth of field, and require lenses that can cover their larger camera sensor sizes.
