Which lenses are compatible with Cinefade?
The Cinefade system is compatible with all cine-lenses that have manual aperture control with a geared iris ring so that an external lens motor can be attached to control iris diameter. Accurate lens markings are also necessary for the User to create precise lens mapping data, which the system uses for exposure calculations to keep the image’s light levels constant.
Old vintage lenses often have inaccurate T-stop markings, which causes problems during lens mapping, as the lens data is incorrect. It is advisable to use a T-stop bench (Kish Optics and P+S Technik) to measure accurate light transmission.
