Oliver Wood « Child 44 »

“It was the perfect lens for hand held work. The focal lengths were exactly right. The lens is very sharp and optically on the same level as the longer Optimo zoom. For me it is a must have on any anamorphic movie.”

“We used the Optimo 56-152 on the movie “Child 44”. It was the perfect lens for hand held work. The focal lengths were exactly right. The lens is very sharp and optically on the same level as the longer Optimo zoom. For me it is a must have on any anamorphic movie. A much needed lens. Thank you Angenieux”

2nd Unit DoP Florian Emmerich Testimonal

“Working on CHILD 44 as the B-camera operator and the 2nd Unit DoP the new anamorphic Angénieux Optimo 56-152 has given us the lens we needed so much to achieve the visual style of the film using zooms in hand held and steadicam situations throughout the show.

In action sequences only the minimal weight and size of the lens allowed us to get shots that were impos¬sible to achieve otherwise.
The optical performance is fantastic with the lens handling backlight situations very well.

The close focus of only 2 foot 1 at 152mm gave us beautiful close ups, perfectly serving the style the direc¬tor Daniel Espinosa and DoP Oliver Wood were looking for, underlining suspense and emotion with very subtle zooms in a handheld or steadicam shot.”
