We used the A set. Absolutely adore 65 and 100. The minimum focus let’s you play with the set in a very interesting way.Shea JonesProducer, "Como Te Llama"

"After the first glance of the creative, I knew a anamorphic look was where we should go. After hiring my go to DP, it was clear we wanted to play with the very best… Atlas Anamorphics. We used the A set. Absolutely adore 65 and 100. The minimum focus let’s you play with the set in a very interesting way. We had one day to shoot in 4 locations. Having the 3 needed focal lengths all in one set really helped us with our day. It was an absolute blast while on set and I’m proud to see the piece of what it is today. If you look at stashfilms.tv, you will see how much my partner and I use your LOVELY lenses :)"

"[We] decided to go with Atlas Orion lenses to create a warm look and cinematic feel."Timon BirkhoferDirector, "Too Good to Lose"

"We looked at many different lens options for this project and decided to go with Atlas Orion lenses to create a warm look and cinematic feel that matched perfectly with the visual aesthetics of the story line. The quality consistency across all focal lengths without losing the characteristics of anamorphics that you are typically only used to from vintage optics, all combined in a modern lens is simply incredible."

"I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I was floored. The images we captured in the snow during my first trip are my favorite of the project and the lenses performed flawlessly."Joe VictorineDP, "My Heroes Were Cowboys"

"Atlas [was] kind enough to lend us a demo set of Orions for the very first leg of our documentary "My Heroes Were Cowboys" in Wyoming, before we had secured funding from Netflix. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I was floored. The images we captured in the snow during my first trip are my favorite of the project and the lenses performed flawlessly. I was able to use them nearly wide open for night exteriors and lived around a T4 during daylight capture. We filmed mostly on the 40 and 65mm focal lengths, one on an Alexa Mini, the other on a Phantom 4K Flex with a 2 person camera crew, and we were each able to pull our own focus. I was very impressed by how well the Orion set functioned in a rugged, remote location on a documentary project."

Orion Series 2X anamorphic prime lenses deliver the striking beauty of painterly waterfall bokeh, disproportionate breathing, and signature yet controlled flare.
