Dalsa Digital Cinema is set to announce the development of a new 4k digital-cinematography camera and portable recorder along with the industry's first 4k anamorphic lenses, designed by lens design veteran Dan Sasaki, to enable cinematographers to shoot anamorphic widescreen digitally using the full resolution capability of Dalsa's image sensor.
"We believe many cinematographers will be thrilled that we're unveiling the opportunity to shoot digitally at 4k resolution at 16-bit, uncompressed, untethered, using the highest-quality anamorphic lenses designed by the legendary Dan Sasaki," said Rob Hummel, president of Dalsa Digital Cinema L.A. "This will be the first time that a CinemaScope 2.40 composition will be captured using the entire sensor area of a digital camera. Now you can capture 2.40 without any compromise in resolution."
