SLR Magic has introduced its HyperPrime Cine 50mm T0.95 standard lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras, an offering it will be showing off at Cine Gear Expo 2015 in LA on June 5th and 6th. The HyperPrime Lens gives a 100mm equivalent focal length and offers a T0.95 maximum aperture, black anodized finish and weighs 620g/1.4lb. Also introduced is the SLR Magic-Rangefinder Cine Adapter with an integrated focus ring.

SLR Magic recommends its Magic-Rangefinder Cine Adapter to photographers in want of 'cinema-like manual focus' on auto-focus lenses and single-focus on its Anamorphot adapters. Both the HyperPrime Cine and Magic-Rangefinder Cine will be launching at SLR Magic dealers on an unspecified date near the end of Q3 2015. The lens will be priced at $999 USD, and the adapter at $599 USD.


Press release:

NEW: THE SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 and SLR MAGIC-RANGEFINDER CINE Adapter

SLR Magic expands its micro four thirds lineup with new standard lens

Hong Kong, China (June 3, 2014) - SLR Magic expands the micro four thirds lens lineup with the new SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 standard lens. The product will be officially introduced during upcoming Cine Gear Expo 2015 in Los Angeles.

The field of view of this new HyperPrime Lens corresponds to a 100mm lens in 35mm format and this fast wide angle of view opens up many new creative composition opportunities, particularly in the fields of documentary cinematography and portrait photography. Additionally, a fast max aperture of T0.95 makes the SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 ideal for available-light photography.

We place our highest priority in the development on our lenses to fulfill the demands of professional cinematographers and photographers. The design and build of the SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 is solid and reliable.

The SLR MAGIC-RANGEFINDER CINE Adapter is an optical device with integrated follow focus gears. When adapted to a compatible taking lens, one could override the focus control of the taking lens with the RANGEFINDER’s built-in focus ring that provides calibrated focus markings from 3’6 ft to Infinity.

The SLR MAGIC-RANGEFINDER CINE Adapter is highly recommended for users wanting to have single focus capability on the SLR Magic Anamorphot adapters as well as users wanting to have cinema like manual focus capabilities on autofocus lenses.

The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 (MSRP: $999 US) and SLR MAGIC-RANGEFINDER CINE Adapter (MSRP: $599 US) will be available from authorized SLR Magic dealers by end of Q3 2015.

The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 (Pre-production) and SLR MAGIC-RANGEFINDER CINE (Prototype) will be first presented at Cine Gear Expo 2015 in Los Angeles. The new SLR Magic demos would be available for viewing at Atomos Booth (No. S122, Stage 14), Convergent Design Booth (No. S318, Stage 32), and Panasonic Booth (No. S221, Stage 31), during the fair which are to be held in Los Angeles from 5th to 6th of June 2015. For all those who want to visit the Cine Gear Expo 2015.
