21mm Orion Series:
The world’s widest front anamorphic cinema lens

The Atlas 21mm offers the widest horizontal field of view of any Cinemascope format 35mm motion picture camera lens, and is optimized for use on both film and digital sensors. The Orion 21mm represents a previously unattainable wide-angle anamorphic field of view using a front anamorphic system, with a pleasing level of distortion, in a lightweight and compact form factor that will not encumber cinematographers and operators.

Extremely low distortion for an incredibly wide lens
124º horizontal field-of-view with 2x anamorphic squeeze
18” (1.5’) close focus
Covers traditional anamorphic 4:3 film and digital sensor formats up to 24.89mm x 18.66mm
Covers full frame formats edge-to-edge with the Atlas 1.6x LF Extender
Complements the Orion Series family of lenses (21/25/32/40/50/65/80/100)
