POWER ZOOM LENSES FOR MOVIES
Why α lens?
Seamless convergence of photography and moviemaking
The long history and accumulated know-how of Sony in video and still image capture is an increasingly important asset to visual creators: α mount cameras, camcorders, and lenses bring the full force of Sony expertise to a wide range of disciplines for unrivaled quality, control, and expressive freedom.
Optics made for movies
Although not normally a problem for stills, optical issues such as focus breathing, focus shift, and axial shift when zooming can make moving images unattractive or even unusable. E-mount lenses inherit technology from our professional camcorders to ensure that these problems don’t occur.
Smooth, quiet iris control
Smooth, quiet equipment operation is essential for high-quality moviemaking. A noisy lens iris (aperture) can be troublesome, so E-mount lenses are built with iris actuators and mechanisms that have been painstakingly designed for quiet, precise operation. Constant-aperture zoom lenses are an advantage too, eliminating the need for iris or ISO changes when zooming.
Silent, precise focus
Focusing, whether manual or automatic, is another function that can degrade movie quality if not quiet and smooth. Sony carefully selects and implements advanced actuators to ideally match individual functions. Contactless linear actuators with no noisy gears or couplings, for example, can achieve smooth, quiet, precise focus.
Superb balance and handling
Some of full-frame E-mount lenses with electronic focus control feature carefully designed control systems that provide responsive, lag-free manual focusing. Many E-mount lenses also employ inner focus and inner zoom mechanisms that keep the physical length of the lens constant while focusing or zooming, for consistent balance and handling that contribute to easier, more stable operation in any shooting situation.
