At Films.Solutions, we’ve always chosen equipment that mirrors our commitment to quality and cinematic excellence. Among our favorites is the Laowa Proteus 2X Anamorphic Lens Series. Comprising four distinct lenses, this series has been a crucial part of our toolkit, enhancing numerous films and documentary productions.

Each lens in this series exudes brilliance. The constant 2X squeeze ratio promises that classic widescreen anamorphic cinematic touch. Coupled with the signature flares and elliptical bokeh, the visual output is always mesmerizing. Thanks to the universal T2 aperture, we’ve captured stellar shots in diverse lighting conditions. Its ability to take impressive close-ups with a 55cm minimum focusing distance has proven invaluable, especially when the scene demands both expansive landscapes and intimate frames.

From our experience, when projected, the Proteus lens yields incredibly sharp images with remarkable contrast. The hues are vivid, and the bokeh has that distinct painterly touch. Shooting wide open at T2 showcases its sharpness, especially when recording over 4K. Its vintage character is undeniable, and the unique amber coating becomes evident in the delightful flares it produces.

Its robust construction ensures longevity, and the seamless transition of its focus and aperture rings makes it a joy to work with. One particular feature we’ve found especially useful is its ability to shoot an entire music promo with just 45mm, capturing detailed close-ups without the need for diopters.

At Films.Solutions, we believe in delivering perfection with every frame. The Laowa Proteus 2X Anamorphic Lens Series stands as a testament to that belief, consistently aiding us in our quest to produce cinematic magic.
