The Cooke Studio

(Open to Cinematographers)

We will be shooting with the new Cooke Varotal/i and S8/i ranges as well as selection of other lenses. The set offers a controlled lighting environment, a selection of cameras and two subjects to shoot. Visitors can have their footage graded on-site and then view it in a dedicated 4K screening room with high-end laser projector, to get a real-world feel for the images that the lenses capture.

For individual booking requests please email Carey Duffy, Cooke’s Director of Product Experiences, at marketing@cookeoptics.com.

Varotal/i Seminar
The Varotal range now features the 19-40mm wide zoom to make a complete set. We will introduce these remarkable lenses and show new footage filmed in a striking UK vineyard with DP Dylan Bruce explaining his experience of using the lens series.

Coffee with Cooke
For over 100 years, Cooke has been at the centre of filmmaking, listening to the community of which we are a part. Join Tim Pugh, CEO of Cooke, and Daniela Kesselem, Chief Product Officer; and share your thoughts on Cooke lenses and imaging trends.
