Anamorphic

Wide-ranging options, from characterful legacy glass to modern, high-performance anamorphics.

Since its mainstream introduction in the 1950s with CinemaScope, anamorphic cinematography has captured the imaginations of filmmakers and audiences alike. The cinematic width, the oval bokeh, and the characteristic flaring all add up to a unique and distinctive aesthetic.

ARRI Rental offers a range of modern and vintage anamorphic lens options, covering different squeeze ratios and delivering different looks. Some 35 mm anamorphics will cover larger formats, but testing is required to be sure of coverage.

In your own words

Main stage slide

Cinematographer Robert Yeoman ASC ("Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again")

I always felt anamorphic lenses have almost a magical quality to them.

Cinematographer John Conroy ("The Happy Prince")

Master Anamorphics are wonderful on the skin; they're sharp but not too sharp and they have a really nice creaminess to them.
