Cooke Anamorphic S35

Harness all of the anamorphic lens characteristics demanded by filmmakers today with the Cooke Look and oval bokeh. Achieve exceptional shape, depth and form with unparalleled optical and mechanical performance.

High performance

Images beautifully rendered for film, with aberrations like astigmatism and longitudinal colour corrected exceptionally well.


Specially manufactured with a coating that allows you to kick flares, bokeh and other aberrations into new visual territory.


Ten focal lengths, all colour matched to our S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i lenses.


Equipped with the next generation of /i Technology to automatically record key lens data for every frame shot.

All Features

Optical Design

The Anamorphic/i series comprises of 10 Anamorphic Prime Lenses. These Lenses are optimised for film and digital film cameras reducing lateral colour aberration and providing an organic bokeh look. Anamorphic/i lenses are designed to provide maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration. The optics feature a 2x squeeze factor for super35 formats in 2.4:1 aspect ratio.


All Anamorphic/i lenses cover Super 35mm formats

Focus Movement

Ergonomically designed to have smooth and accurate travel – whilst utilising precision mechanics to provide a consistent feel in operation through the entire focus movement.

/I Technology

The Cooke /I Technology ecosystem provides critical lens metadata such as focus and Iris position. Suitable for the most modern VFX applications such as Virtual Production shooting.


All Anamorphic/i series Lenses have standardised 0.8 MOD focus and Iris drive gears. Most lenses in the series also feature a fixed common front diameter of 110mmm (The 25mm, 65MACRO, 300mm Lenses feature a 136mm front diameter)

Weight/Size Ratio

Optimised for the series

Colour Balance

All Anamorphic/i lenses are colour balanced and colour matched – ensuring consistency across the series


The Anamorphic/i series of prime lenses feature an eleven-leaf linear module iris assembly. Providing an aperture range of T2.3-T22 (65 Macro T2.6-T22)

Focus Scales

All lenses have factory calibrated focus scales with clearly identifiable distance marks

Camera Mounts

Precision PL Mount with /i Technology Electrical Contacts

External Finish

Durable and Hard wearing surface finish to meet the needs of the most demanding environmental conditions

Reliability and Service

All Anamorphic/i series lenses are designed for full performance and reliability with a minimum of downtime
