Overview

Overview

All BLACKWING7 optics are offered in (3) core tuning options (S, T, X) per focal length, configurable at point of manufacture. These cinema primes are purpose-designed for Large Format motion picture imaging, exhibiting unique imaging properties which arise from the introduction of controlled distortion during the development and manufacturing processes. This distortion is modular and allows a level of tunability over key parameters which shape many creative characteristics of the lenses, including unique flaring characteristics. The image produced by a BLACKWING7 lens has been described as having a "musical fidelity".

TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 S-Tuned prime lenses feature a "Straight" profile often described as clean, with greater control over resonant flare characteristics (thanks to elements with both multi-layer and edge coatings). The more advanced optical coating also allows a modest increase in central image sharpness while maintaining a smooth roll-off of contrast across the frame. This profile is based on optical designs from the first half of the 20th Century, such as the 1950 Wray UNILITE 50mm f/2.

The BLACKWING7 range currently comprises a core set of (7) focal lengths, with an additional 20.7mm prime coming in 2022:

  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 20.7mm T1.9 Cine Lens (Availability TBD)
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 27mm T1.9 Cine Lens
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 37mm T1.9 Cine Lens 
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 47mm T1.9 Cine Lens
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 57mm T1.9 Cine Lens
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 77mm T1.9 Cine Lens
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 107mm T1.9 Cine Lens
  • TRIBE7 BLACKWING7 137mm T1.9 Cine Lens

NOTE: Custom lens tuning allows parameters such as sharpness, contrast, roll-off, spherical aberration, field curvature, edge halation and flare to be modified to provide sets of "curated" optics to suit the personality and intent of the owner. This is a collaborative sales experience…a conversation between the client, AbelCine, and TRIBE7. This direct connection to the manufacturer is a unique opportunity for the end user to express their creative intent through the optical design process. Contact an AbelCine salesperson for more information.
