The Cine Ring brings your still image lenses one step closer to actual cine lenses and thereby makes your life on set easier. One of the disadvantages of using still image lenses versus cine lenses is that they all have different front diameters. Our cine ring screws into the front thread of your still image lens and brings the front diameter to an industry standard 95mm. It also provides you with a common front filter thread of 92mm. Your lenses are now compatible with many cine accessories that attach to the front of the lens. You no longer need to worry about having a lightproof connection between your matte box and your lens. All you need is an 95mm donut or bellow, and all your lenses will fit perfectly. Also, you can use clamp-on matte boxes and shades that attach directly to the 95mm adapter ring (given your lens can support the weight of the clamp on matte box).

The included Deluxe Cine Lens Cap fits our 95mm Cine Rings and lenses with an 95mm front. It has a tight fit and wont fall off easily in your lens case like it often happens with other caps. The cap is made from a very abrasion resistant rubber like material. It’s specifically designed to withstand heavy use as often encountered in the rental environment. The surface finish is matte black and there are no ejector pin marks etc. as common in most other caps.  We have looked at many other caps and found the Deluxe Cine Lens Cap to be the best cap currently available. It even beats the much more expensive Arri Cap.

You can choose to get your cap marked with the focal length of your lens or do a full custom engraving. The marking  is done on an anodized aluminum insert that is bonded to the lens cap with an adhesive.

 

About “the lip”
The lip on Cine Rings serves as a hard stop when pushing the matte box against the lens preventing light leaks, a crucial function that is often overlooked. The width of the 95mm front section is still plenty deep for clamp on accessories. Without a lip, you always have to be careful not to push your lens too far into the matte box. We found that out by trial and error and that is why we came up with “the lip”. You can always be confident that there are no light leaks that could potentially ruin your shot. If you take a look at real Cine Lenses, you will notice that they either have a lip (like the Zeiss Master Primes), or they have a very deep barrel which makes it almost impossible to push the matte box too far onto the lens.

Advantages:
– Common outside front diameter of 95mm across all your lenses.
– Makes your lenses compatible with many cine accessories (shades, clamp on matte boxes, etc.).
– No need to switch donuts or bellows on your matte box when switching lenses.
– You now have a cine style front cap to protect your lens.
