LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lindsey Optics announces a new ONE SLOT +1 Diopter Tray Mount Close-Up Lens for cinematography that fits in one 4×5.65” matte box stage.
Using a high refractive index glass allowed reduction of the glass thickness and therefore the overall thickness of the +1 Tray Mount Close-Up Lens. The previous version was thicker and used two 4×5.65” matte box slots.
The new +1 Diopter One Slot Tray Mount Close-Up Lens is part of a 5 lens offering. Available individually or as a set, they are offered in values of +1/4 Diopter, +1/2 Diopter, +1 Diopter, +2 Diopter and +3 Diopter.
The +1/4, +1/2 and +1 diopter strengths fit in one slot. The +2 uses 2 slots and the +3 uses 3 slots in the matte box.
Close-Up Lenses are used to get close-up images of small objects when the cine lens being used won't focus that closely.
The unique tray mount design of the Tray Mount Close-Up Lenses allows quick and easy insertion and changes of close-up lenses in both clip-on and rod mount 4"x5.65" cine matte boxes
The Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lenses use Lindsey Optics 138mm Close-Up Lenses (Diopters), permanently mounted in 4"x5.65" trays, which gives a 5.1" diameter clear aperture in the tray, allowing use with large lenses and wider angle lenses.
All Lindsey Optics lenses are made from the finest optical glass and have a broadband multi-layer anti-reflection coating (MC Coating).
Priced at $550 each, they are available now.
Lindsey Optics manufactures lenses and filters for cinematography in Lancaster California, just North of Los Angeles. Other innovative products include the Brilliant Macro Lens Attachments, Brilliant² Rota Pol and Brilliant² variable ND.
