YOUR ART IS CINEMATOGRAPHY
OURS IS TECHNOLOGY
Cinematography is all about telling stories through the magic of motion pictures. Tokina cinema lenses are indispensable tools that can make your story more interesting one frame at a time.
Tokina has been at the forefront of zoom lens innovation for 60 years. Bringing our technology and quality from the still world into the motion world was only a matter of time. With our new cinema lenses, shooters of all levels and budgets can now take the art of cinematic storytelling to a new level.
GET IN-CLOSE AND STILL GET THE BIG PICTURE
No matter what format you prefer to shoot in, it seems there is always one lingering problem: How to capture an entire scene without having to place the camera at a point that's so far away from the action, you lose the intrigue of the moment. Our new super-wide cinema lenses are built to make this problem a worry of the past. You can get in close for dramatic impact or step back and capture more action than most other prime or zoom lenses. The lenses' fast apertures will also give you flexibility in lighting your scene, or shooting in a variety of naturally lit conditions.
BUILT ON A LEGACY OF WIDE-ANGLE INNOVATION
When it comes to lens innovation, our roots run deep. Tokina was the first manufacturer to introduce an auto-focus 80-400 zoom in the photography market, and the first large-sized, precision molded all-glass aspherical element. We built our new cinema lenses with the same innovative vision.
READY FOR 4K FROM DESIGN TO PRODUCTION
Tokina cinema lenses were precision engineered to meet the demands of 4K, 2K and HD optical performance from the beginning. In fact, they were meeting 4K standards even before the first commercially available 4K cinema cameras arrived on the scene. The fusion of multiple aspheric elements, SD glass, and decades of proven technology in our lenses combines to produce outstanding optical performance.
THE BEST WIDE-ANGLE VALUE ON THE MARKET
These days the accessories available for cinematography seem all but endless. To ensure as many filmmakers as possible can include a wide-angle lens in their gear bag, we built lenses at a reasonable price point without sacrificing quality or performance.
