 The PS945 lens is a versatile visioning tool: Wide open, at f/4.5, you will see a beautiful glow in the highlights with no loss of sharpness or resolution. Stop down the lens to f/11 and higher and note the stunning look of the out of focus areas of your image. The characteristics of this lens are unlike any other.



The original design of this lens is from the vintage Pinkham & Smith Visual Quality Series IV Soft Focus Lens used by early 20th century master impressionist photographers. These talented photographers made soft focus photography an art form using, most notably, Pinkham & Smith lenses, yet today, this original lens design offers much more. Use the Cooke PS945 to capture portraits, fashion, landscapes, weddings and for artistic experimentation. It lends an emotion to product shots that you just can't achieve afterward in Photoshop.

The COOKE XVa is a lens made in small quantities, to very high standards, with multicoated surfaces and full COLOR CORRECTION. It makes a brilliant image for color or B&W films and digital backs. The use of high refractive index lanthanum glass in two of the elements allows better corrections and flatter lens surfaces. This also makes the quality of the image from single elements about five times as good as the original series XV. There is no need for yellow filters, minus blue, to sharpen the image in black and white. It projects a sharp, high resolution, high contrast image at f/6.8 on 8 x10 film. The individual elements are f/11 and f/16 and they too project a sharp color corrected image on 8x10 film.
