Thanks to a modular design philosophy, influenced by cinematographer feedback, key elements of the Angenieux Optimo Primes can be modified. The iris blade, internal optical element, and rear filter can all be configured to achieve the desired look and bokeh.

Each BLACKWING7 lens is hand-built using a proprietary technique, which allows its optical performance to be uniquely configured and tuned to the owner’s wishes and creative style. This is accomplished through the introduction of controlled distortion during the development and manufacturing processes.
