High performance cine lenses that keep pace with technology

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.

Proven ZEISS quality

The ZEISS CP.3 lenses offer the perfect combination of high image quality and reliable usability. They exhibit the clean, crisp characteristics ZEISS is known for, together with an interchangeable mount system and full-frame coverage. CP.3 lenses are compatible with a wider range of cameras and mount types than any other cine lens on the market.

Interchangeable mount system

A future-proof solution

The ZEISS CP.3 lenses are equipped with an easy-to-operate, interchangeable mount system. It enables a quick change from the typical cine-style PL-mount to four other mount options (Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E or MFT). This proven feature offers tremendous flexibility and future-proof investment in today’s rapidly changing camera market. There are two versions of the PL-mount, one equipped with an electronic interface for recording lens data on the ZEISS CP.3 XD lenses via the internal camera interface and the other without the electronic interface for the standard ZEISS CP.3 lenses.

Efficiency throughout the entire production process, thanks to the ZEISS CP.3 XD lenses

While on set, the ZEISS eXtended Data feature enables members of the crew to monitor lens settings in real-time, pre-visualize modified images and to use new, automated search functions within data wrangling. In post-production, ZEISS eXtended Data offers numerous benefits such as image fine-tuning, editing and colour grading, visual effects, virtual and augmented reality, multi-cam live productions, projection or 3-D imaging. An additional plug-in provided by EISS allows an easy implementation of ZEISS eXtended Data in a number of leading software tools.

New ZEISS eXtended Data technology

The ZEISS CP.3 XD version features innovative and ground-breaking lens data technology to speed-up and simplify the workflow on set and in post-production. 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.

Thinking big

With the ZEISS CP.3 XD lenses, even small productions on a limited budget gain access to the advanced techniques common in state-of-the-art, big budget films, commercials and television shows.

Unifying image quality, usability and innovation

True cine look

  • Clean and crisp ZEISS look which matches perfectly with other ZEISS cinema lenses
  • colour 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

Compact design for the new digital workflow

  • 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

Ultimate cine ergonomics

  • Standardised 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 simplify lighting on set and exposure compensations (T2.9 for 15 to 21 mm and T2.1 for 25 to 135 mm)

Mastering the digital cinema workflow

  • The ZEISS eXtended Data is a unique technology that provides information about the lens’ distortion and shading characteristics in real-time
  • The 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

Adding greater depth to your images

Ready for HDR-projects

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 colours, enabling shooting in High Dynamic Range (HDR) modes with subtly nuanced differences in deep shadows and bright highlights in the same scene. With the ZEISS CP.3 lenses, there is a greater depth to the images than ever before.

  • Supporting pictures with a high dynamic range thanks to special lens coatings
  • High resolution and contrast
  • Great flare suppression through T*® anti-reflex coating and internal light traps
  • Excellent colour rendition
  • colour matched

Future proof performance with full-frame coverage

ZEISS Compact Prime CP.3 lenses feature exquisite, high performing optics in a robust and durable package – two characteristics that will remain desirable for decades to come. Thanks to the interchangeable lens mounts, the Compact Prime CP.3 and CP.3 XD lenses offer the possibility to upgrade to any number of existing or future cine cameras without investing in a new set of lenses. They all cover a full-frame image format without vignetting.

  • Full-frame coverage (24 mm x 36 mm) for all focal lengths from 15 mm to 135 mm
  • Coverage up to 46.3 mm image circle
  • Common T2.9 aperture for the 15 mm to 21 mm focal lengths and T2.1 for the lenses ranging from 25 mm to 135 mm.
  • Interchangeable lens mount
  • Robust, cine-style housing
  • 300 degree focus rotation angle
  • Calibrated focus scales
  • Circular 14-blade aperture, provides a cinematic look and natural looking out of focus highlights
