XEEN CF

Compact & Flexible cine prime lens

Why XEEN CF

XEEN CF Cine Prime lenses are ultra-lightweight, high performance cine prime lenses for large image sensors.

In order to cope with changes in the imaging environment where the equipment becomes smaller and lighter, the XEEN CF R&D team started an innovation from the basic materials of the lens.

Carbon Fiber is widely used in the aviation and automotive industry for its light and robust properties, but it is difficult to mold and therefore has not been utilized in the highly precise optics industry.

Researchers selected Carbon Fiber as the main material to maintain robustness and reduce lens weight. After years of efforts to shape fibers into specific shapes and sizes and graft them into sensitive and fragile glass parts, we have finally made carbon fiber usable for XEEN CF.

The use of carbon fiber in the exterior reduces unnecessary weight and enhances rigidity. Less than 1kg (0.9lbs) of lightweight body can flexibly respond to various shooting environments and capture various images including weight-sensitive equipment such as drones and gimbals.

With its outstanding resolution that supports 8K and its unique X-Coating Technology, it expresses performers’ delicate emotions in full detail.

The bright aperture of the T1.5 delivers beautiful bokeh, shallow depth of field and excellent low light performance.

Winning the award at the German iF Design Award for its ease of use, XEEN CF is also well-received for its futuristic design.

Carbon Fiber - Compact & Flexible

By applying carbon fiber, which is lighter than metal but solid and beautiful, to the lens body tube, it remains lightweight while maintaining durability.
It is designed to be small and light so it can be mounted on numerous cameras and used more flexibly in a variety of environments.

8K & Cinematic look

It has the outstanding resolution supporting a large image sensor and 8K. Additionally, it offers beautiful bokeh with a bright T1.5 aperture and maximize the delicate emotions of people while richly depicting the shot.

X-Coating

By applying our proprietary X-coating technology, it effectively controls the reflection of light inside and within the lens itself to create a distinctive look. Properly utilizing flares and ghosting, you can create dramatic effects.

Outstanding Usability

The front aperture (95mm), focus, and aperture ring gear positions are unified, making it easy and convenient to attach and detach lens accessories such as Matte Box and Follow Focus. In addition, the ultra-bright luminous font allows for convenient use in dark environments.

1. Ø95 Front Size

Designed to 95mm standard front diameter size it is compact in size and easily compatible with Matte Box

Dramatic Portraits

XEEN CF, compatible with the latest Digital Cinema Camera, can express the dramatic emotions of a performer in a rich and delicate manner.

Crystak Clear Resolution

Optimized for the latest image sensors and seamlessly compatible with the latest cameras. Supporting 8K, XEEN CF delivers superior resolution for more vibrant landscapes and detailed depictions.

Sharp and Rich Image

Excellent sharpness and color optimized for skin tone shows excellent results with subtle emotional expression.

Dimensional Look

Sense of depth is expressed more freely, allowing you to shoot images with excellent sense of dimensionallity and space. Increase the focus on the main performers and the beautifully blurred background adds to the beauty of the image.

Cinematic Halation Effect

Proprietary X Coating technology effectively controls flares and ghosting while reducing unwanted light reflections providing a halation effect for dramatic expression.
