https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRS9fVh7MUw While it's a cool look inside a Cooke S4, it impressed us because it's actually very accurate - unlike most technical junk that shows up on TV (e.g. "hacking"). Check out the quick video and then take a moment to appreciate the engineering behind such a beautiful lens.
Have a spare $1,000,000?
ebay listingUsed equipment retailer Calkovsky Cinema Worldwide put up a rather interesting listing on the eBay store recently. Titled "1000'S OF CINEMA LENSES 16MM 35MM MOVIE CAMERAS LOT ANGENIEUX COOKE ZEISS KERN", which pretty much sums it up. The listing goes on to proclaim "Start your own business!", "1000's of quantity total!", "TOO MANY TO PICTURE! TOO MANY TO LIST!" and plenty of other vague proclamations. Take a look at the listing here and decide for yourself if it's worth a million dollars. The shipping is a bargain at only $999. That lot must weigh several hundred pounds after proper packing.
