Veydra Mini Prime Lens Set

Veydra Primes Set

Veydra Mini Prime Lens Set – Micro 4/3rds Mount – Now available for rent at Revolution Cinema Rentals!

The MFT Veydra Mini Prime lens sets are made specifically for today’s digital cameras with smaller sensors; IE mirrorless cameras. Since these are cinema quality lenses, this means that they are of the highest quality and produce an image that you will be proud to call your own.

Veydra Mini Primes are all cine-vised. They are de-clicked; have FF and Iris gears and 80mm fronts. They smoothly integrate with all follow focus systems, either on camera or remote. They are easy to work with and change in and out quickly because each lens has the same physical dimensions, as the focus and iris gears are identically placed across the barrel.

These lenses were custom designed and built from the ground up. They are not re-housed still lenses that have been modified for cinema work. The images that are produced are of top quality. The background fall off is rich and the bokeh is round and smooth. Each lens features a 10-bladed iris that, wide open, produces nice round out-of-focus highlights, with the shapes becoming more oblong at the edges and corners of the frame, depending on your T stop.

Set includes:

12mm T2.2 – CF 8” – Wt 19.2 oz
16mm T2.2 – CF 8” – Wt 19.3 oz
25mm T2.2 – CF 10” – Wt 16.1 oz
35mm T2.2 – CF 11” – Wt 16.7 oz
50mm T2.2 – CF 15” – Wt 16.3 oz

RCR is proud to be a sponsor of the 5th Anniversary ZEDFEST

ZED FEST 2014 FLYER

You’ve heard of “B-Movies” right? The low budget second movie in a double feature. Movies that were bad, or so bad they’re good. Movies that demand multiple viewings and you can’t help but quote. You’ve probably have never heard of “Z-Movies” have you? The Z-Movies (or as we like to call them “Zed-Flicks”) were usually the independent micro-budget with unknown cast members, and made by Filmmakers that had dedication to complete their films. They were the early incarnation of Grindhouse and Drive In Flicks. “B’s” (Actually many of what is considered an old B-Movie today were actually “Z’s” back when they first came out.) In our opinion the “Z’s” are better.
Robot Monster a 1953 Z-Movie that was the first Sci-Fi in 3-D Directed by Phil Tucker, which inspired us because of Phil Tucker’s dedication and tenacity to complete his film project. Our hero, Phil Tucker could not afford to have a robot costume made for his classic ROBOT MONSTER, but he knew a guy with a good gorilla suit, then had a space helmet made out of papier-mâché, and just kept going. If that is not passion for your work, we don’t know what is. That is the type of film maker and screenwriter we would like to encourage with our
ZED FEST FILM FESTIVAL & SCREENPLAY COMPETITION.
WE HOPE TO DISCOVER THE CULT MOVIES OF THE FUTURE…
