#Cinematographer Xavier Dolleans @xavierdolleans_dop chose a #SonyVenice camera paired with Cooke Panchro/i Classic lenses to shoot Seasons 3 & 4 of SKAM France @skamfranceofficial, the French version of the acclaimed and innovative Norwegian youth series. Read the full story in our news section. Slide left for #behindthescenes at “They gave all the characteristics of the old Cooke Speed Panchros with a modern housing similar to that of Cooke S4/i,” Dolléans said. “Then we realised that the Panchro/i Classics cover the full frame from the 50mm, with little vignetting, up to the 100mm, which is great as the 50mm on full frame sensor becomes more a 35mm (equivalent S35) in terms of field of view, enough for most of our wide shots on Skam. You really can isolate actors from the background at T2.2, and the beautiful painterly blurred bokeh of the Cooke Panchro/i Classics is even more pronounced. So, that was the ideal pairing with the Venice, and the perfect tool for this show.” #skamfrance #cinematography #cameradept #tvseries #cookeoptics #shotoncooke #cookepanchroiclassic

And talking of the we were.. #didyouknow.. Cooke lenses were also used to document the Mt. Everest expeditions in 1922 and 1924. Captain John Noel, the expedition's photographer, used a #NewmanSinclair camera, specially made by Mr. Newman, weighing 40 pounds. It's rigid frame construction was designed to hold 400 feet of 35mm film and a specially made 20 inch Cooke Series VIII f5.6 #Telephoto lens. A Cooke product catalog of 1930 said that the lens "made a fine reputation when they were used for motion pictures of the climbers from a distance of two miles." A letter to the company from Captain Noel in 1985 says that the highest station he reached at Everest was 23,000 feet and another was a rock ledge at 22,000 feet. He was able to get a "very clear view" of the signal sent to them at base camp number 3 "by Odell at No. 4 camp to tell us of the death of Mallory & Irvine, last seen ascending only 600 feet from the very top of #Everest then hidden by the driving snow." Twenty-nine years later, Tom Stobart, official #filmmaker for John Hunt's Mt. Everest Expedition with #SirEdmundHillary, achieved 35mm standards of quality while shooting "Conquest of Everest" entirely with 16mm #Cookelenses.
