Cinescope exhibit at IBC 2018

Cinescope Optics are back in the Dam, thats Amsterdam, for the second year running. This year they have the Full Frame Red Monstro, to showcase the amazing full frame capabilities of the Cinescope rehoused Leica R lenses. Special shout out to Camalot  Rentals in Amsterdam, who kindly lent Cinescope the Camera for the week. Camerlot actually placed the very first Cinescope Optics order back in 2016.  I think its safe to say that they were well and truly ‘future proof’.
