BROADCAST SERIES

LENS ACCESSORIES

The Broadcast Series has been expanding the capabilities of broadcast camerawork since the early 80’s.

WA-7X5X-00

WA-8XCV-00

WA-FESU-00

XF-212B, XF-223B

Wide Angle Adapter Set

The Wide Angle Adapter Set is the industry standard. The

.7X attaches to the front of a video zoom lens to increase coverage by 30%. Adding the Super Wide to the .7X yields

50% more coverage than the lens alone. No exposure compensation required. Non zoom.

.8X Zoom-Thru Wide Angle Converter

The .8X Wide Converter attaches to the front of a zoom lens, effectively shortening its focal length retaining full zoom range. Attach the .8X to the lens front for 20% more coverage when set to wide angle, tele or anywhere between. The .8X reduces minimum object distance (MOD) allowing the camera to move closer to the subject & maintain focus. Full zoom capability.

Super Fisheye Adapter

The Super Fisheye produces an extraordinary degree of barrel distortion & a magnification factor of approximately

.55X. Adding the Fisheye to a 15X8, results in a 116° horiz.

angle of view—a remarkable 145° when measured diagonally.

2X Tele-Extender

Mount a Century Tele-Extender between camera and lens to double focal length. The 2X Tele-Extender turns a 9-144mm zoom, into a 18-288mm. Characterized by shallow depth of field, Tele-Extenders help isolate a subject from foreground and background. Two-stop exposure compensation.

1.6X Tele-Converter

Shift focal range in the telephoto direction with no effect on exposure. A lens with a built-in tele-extender, can achieve the longest reach by adding the 1.6X Tele-

Converter. Thus, engaging the internal 2X extender converts an 8-120mm f/1.7 lens to a 16-240mm f/3.4,

(two-stop loss). Add a 1.6X Tele to the front and it becomes 26-384mm f/3.4.

HD-CI50-00

HD Collimator

The Century HD Collimator is ideal for checking backfocus when changing lenses on the set, and for confirming that backfocus has not shifted due to temperature changes. Compatible with HD prime & zoom video lenses

—including Canon, Fujinon, Zeiss & Angenieux—this convenient and easy to use accessory ensures fast and accurate backfocus adjustment.

HD Tilt-Focus Lenses

Including: 24mm, 45mm and 90mm in B4 mount.

Providing 360° of rotation and 8° of tilt in any direction, offering remarkable control of the subject focus plane.

Innovision HD Probe II Plus

Made by Century, compact high-resolution, periscopic attachment lets camera operators shoot from an ultralow perspective. Featuring a 15” long lens barrel and

1.7”, diameter, Probe II Plus lets the operator get over, under, and through objects—for a novel range of shooting possibilities.

Digicon TM

For a “filmic look” when shooting with digital cameras.

When used in front of the lens, optically raises black levels while lowering highlights. By compensating with in-camera gamma settings, a higher dynamic range can be recorded than the camera alone can achieve. The result is more detail in highlights and shadows with no effect on resolution & no color shift. Highlight areas remain clean and halo-free. May be used on a 35mm cine camera to approximate the look of a lower contrast film stock.

S2000 Century/Canon 17-35mm T3 and S2000 Century/Minolta 28-70mm T3

Canon Prime Modifications

Century/Canon 200mm T2, 300mm T3, & 400mm T3 Mark II conversions are adaptations of Canon's EOS SLR lenses. The

Century/Canon Mark II lenses combine Canon's superior photographic optics with easy-to-use, cinema-friendly features.

Lenses & Specialty Optics

Century offers a broad range of lenses and accessories for

16mm & 35mm film and video. Our award-winning cine lens conversions are used by the finest filmmakers.

Low Angle Prism

Low Angle Prisms will take you down to points of view a few inches off the floor. When the situation calls for an extremely high angle such as shooting over the driver’s shoulder in a car, down off a ceiling, or from the canopy of a cockpit, a Low

Angle Prism may also be the perfect solution. The units simply invert to cover high angle shots as well as low.

Clairmont Swing-Shift Lens System

The Clairmont Swing/Shift System utilizes bellows, swings, tilts, rises, falls & shifts to provide view camera controls to film cameras. Filmmakers can distort the shape of a subject, remove unwanted object from the frame, or shoot straight into a mirror without catching the camera’s reflection.

Steady Tester

Film registration test device that hard mounts to the camera eliminating camera movement & vibration relative to the test target. The Steady Tester hard mounts to the camera with the

Century Interchangeable Mount system like a prime or zoom lens. This eliminates camera movement and vibration relative to the test target. Because the grid target is at the front of the camera, the frame is automatically filled with the test image.

Lens Test Projector

Specifically designed to test professional motion picture and video “taking lenses.” With this system, the taking lens is used as a projection lens, yielding a projected image which may be quickly and efficiently analyzed. Used by manufacturers, rental houses, & government facilities to maintain a constant check on lens image performance.

Periscope Systems

Periscopic relay systems for both film and video. The top-ofthe-line S2000 Mark II Periscope offers superior resolution and is available in straight or 90°configurations.
