The Morpheus is the result of a request from Arri Media to redesign an 80-200mm Nikon for the 2006 Bond Feature, which TLS has since further refined and put into production.
Designed to be lightweight; at 2.3kg (5.07lbs) they are ideal for steadicam, hand held, small camera setups and remotely operated rigs.
The optical design of this lens exhibits superb optical performance, rendering great images on film and has been optimized for digital cameras.
AR coatings reduce flares and veiling glare for deep, rich blacks and a wide contrast range, whilst the Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass reduces chromatic aberrations, critical for digital camera sensors. The 9 leaf iris generates round, out of focus highlights and a pleasing, organic bokeh.
The lenses ergonomics demonstrates TLS’s experience in designing and engineering tools for today’s practical shooting situations. Robust construction, easy to read large scales and the same 110mm front diameter as the TLS Speed Panchro and the Cooke prime range ensures that using these lenses on set is quick and efficient.
