Chasing big pictures with big lenses

Registration is closed

At this engrossing event you'll find out how lens designers are responding to cinematographers' pursuit of the big 65 mm picture look.

Learn how right at the centre of this new look comes Leica with a new type of lens that aims to put paid to the ironic practice of sticking old lenses on brand new cameras in search of an organic human look.

Experts from Leica in Germany will show us footage that illustrates how and why they designed the new Thalia lenses with a circular bokeh and images that not too sharp and not too flat.    

Our knowledgeable guests Rainer Hercher and Osamu Tsukada from Leica lens maker CW Sonderoptic will answer any lens questions you have. From our event they fly on to ACS in Sydney.

Register now and don't miss this great event hosted by CW Sonderoptic and NZCS silver sponsor Imagezone at their equipment facility in Grey Lynn. Drinks and nibbles provided from 6:30 pm for a 7:30 pm start.
