Digital technologies have transformed traditional filmmaking and refashioned the market. New and innovative technologies in both production and post-production have paved the way for a more versatile, cost effective and advanced workflow. The ZEISS CP.3 family is the latest contribution from ZEISS to support creative and progressive filmmaking with an affordable, future-proof and premium quality lens set.
True cine look Ranging from 15 mm to 135 mm, the ten focal lengths available in the ZEISS Compact Prime CP.3 cover all applications from wide-angle to telephoto. The ZEISS CP.3 lenses feature advanced lens coatings, painted lens rims and special light traps within the barrel to eliminate unwelcome veiling glare and flares. The result is higher contrast, richer blacks and more saturated colors.
Clean and crisp ZEISS look which matches perfectly with other ZEISS cinema lenses
Color matching and covering full frame across the full range of focal lengths from 15 to 135 mm
Special lens coatings support high-dynamic range projects
New ZEISS eXtended Data technology The ZEISS eXtended Data technology adds new opportunities to simplify and increase the accuracy of the image capture and processing workflow. ZEISS eXtended Data unifies two data sets: key lens data based on the open /i Technology standard and supported by a wide range of cameras and accessories, plus ZEISS specific lens data that contains precise lens characteristics.
A unique technology that provides information about the lens’ distortion and shading characteristics in real time to speed-up the workflow on set and in post-production
Lens settings are digitally captured on every frame, avoiding the need to manually record the lens settings for every shot
Documentation of the lens’ characteristics enhances creativity by allowing more complex shots to be handled in post-production
Ultimate cine ergonomics The ZEISS CP.3 lenses are a professional toolset that simplifies your work on set. They are easy to handle, allow for fast changeover of equipment and give you great creative freedom to make your ideas come to life.
Standardized positioning of the focus rings and a consistent 95 mm front diameter allows for fast and easy changeover while on set
Extraordinarily smooth focus rotation even in extreme temperature conditions thanks to a new, sophisticated construction design
Consistent T-stops simplifies lighting on set and exposure compensations (T2.9 for 15 to 21 mm and T2.1 for 25 to 135 mm)
Compactness redefined The compact and light-weight design enables you to use different stabilizing systems and to have a compact camera setup that is ideal for shooting in narrow spaces and for capturing dynamic shots.
The compact and light-weight design is ideal for handheld, gimbal, drone and Steadicam applications
Consistent size and weight across most of the focal lengths enables quick change of lenses when used on drones and gimbals
The ultra-smooth focus rotation allows use of small focus motors
