Alexa | Zeiss Jena Medium Format Lenses


About 90% of this film was shot using a set of Jeiss Jena medium format lenses from the 1960's. We shot the whole film between t/5.6-t/8 which helped with any softness but since we were using the centre of the lens with our super35 sensor we got some nice results. The two favourites were the 30mm f/3.5 and the 80mm f/2,8.

They were a menace at times but they helped us achieve the look of the film. We experimented with using the 80mm to get our wide shots, which ended up being my favourite scenes.
