P+S Technik Kowa “Evolution” 2x Anamorphic Primes

Set Options

6 Lens Set 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm

The new P+S Technik Kowa “Evolution” 2x Anamorphic Primes are based on the original optical designs of the vintage 1960’s Kowa Anamorphic’s. Produced in Japan up until the 1970’s, the original Kowas were a true 2x front anamorphic design which produced an image warm in colour with low contrast. The flare is also warm as opposed to the blue flare seen in other anamorphic designs. P+S Technik has extensive experience rehousing the original Kowas, so combining their experience with modern mechanical design to the original Kowa optical design is the perfect evolution. The look and bokeh of the “Evolution” series match the genuine 2 x anamorphic look of the original Kowas. Like the originals they are low in contrast and warm in color and can be made to flare. In addition to the 40mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm of the original set, the new P+S Technik “Evolution” series has expanded by including two new focal lengths, a 32mm and 135mm. With a compact form factor and modest price, the P+S Technik Kowa “Evolution” series are a great match for your next anamorphic project.
