16 mm

Small and fast lenses for the 16 mm format, associated with free-flowing, responsive filmmaking.

Many of the cinematographers working today started their careers with 16 mm. While not as widespread as it once was, this format offers a wealth of high-quality optics, often compact in size and light in weight. Whether you're shooting analog 16 mm film, or cropping a digital sensor, we've got 16 mm lenses that are worth a second look.
