ARRI delivers under its Signature
ARRI’s entire range of Signature Prime lenses is now available and shipping. Known for capturing warm, smooth skin tones, with exceptionally soft bokeh and delicate flares, the ARRI Signature Prime lenses are the first full range of large-format lenses designed specifically for digital cinematography. They feature 16 focal lengths ranging from 12 mm to 280 mm. The Signature Primes cover all image circles, up to 46 mm, making them compatible with any ARRI or third-party camera with an LPL mount.
In a recent interview with ARRI, cinematographer Roger Deakins CBE, ASC, BSC explained, “the image that the ALEXA LF and the Signature Primes produces, seems to me, more like what my eyes see than anything else I have experienced so far.”
Since their launch, the ARRI Signature Prime lenses have been used on the set of high-profile feature films and television series including 1917 with Deakins CBE, ASC, BSC, Emily in Paris with Steven Fierberg ASC, Just 1 Day with Chris Doyle, HKSC, Outlander (season 5) with Stijn Van der Veken, ASC, SBC, and The Invisible Man with Stefan Duscio ACS. Cinematographer Adam Kimmel ASC has also used the Signature Primes on commercials for Audi, MG, Mercedes-Benz, and Jeep.
