For professional Super 35 mm/APS-C power zoom for 4K movies
This powered zoom lens delivers optimum performance in Super 35 mm/APS-C moviemaking applications, starting at 18 mm wide-angle and extending through an impressive 6.1x zoom range with a constant F4 maximum aperture. G Lens optical performance delivers image quality that is suitable for 4K production throughout the zoom range, right out to the image periphery. Sony SMO design minimizes image shift due to lens operation, while high-level zoom control and refined focus add to professional overall performance.
Smooth Motion Optics meet pro cinema needs
Sony's original SMO (Smooth Motion Optics) design and construction minimizes optical shifts that can have a negative impact on movie quality. Focus breathing is minimized by an internal focus mechanism, focus shift is eliminated by precise focus tracking adjustment, and axial shift is minimized by a constant-length design.
High-level, versatile zoom control
In addition to smooth powered zoom, mechanical manual zoom ensures control with no lag. The desired angle of view can be accurately reached without overshoot or undershoot. Zoom ring direction can be easily switched as required, smooth, slow powered zoom is supported, and an inner zoom mechanism means that the length of the lens remains constant.
Refined focus operation and features
The focus ring slides to switch between auto and manual focus, so the switchover can be made with no break or change in shooting posture. A 0.8 mm pitch focus gear is built right into the lens, providing direct compatibility with standard focusing accessories.
Ideal size and weight for active shooting
Compact, lightweight design contributes to the kind of mobility that active movie shooting demands. Small size and low weight can be advantageous when using gimbals and other types of support, too.
The impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist's vision.
Reliable in challenging conditions
A sealed dust and moisture-resistant design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to keep captured images stable and blur-free in a wide range of shooting conditions. It can be a huge advantage when shooting in low light, minimizing the need to boost ISO and possibly introduce noise, as well as when moving around with the camera.
SELP18110G "Smooth Motion Optics" Movie
The SELP18110G is a Super 35 mm/APS-C format powered zoom lens featuring superb image quality as well as operability and quietness that can enhance efficiency and workflow in serious movie production environments. From 18 mm wide-angle to 110 mm telephoto (6.1x), this lens covers the most frequently used range for Super 35 mm/APS-C production with constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. Moreover, unwanted image shifts from issues including focus breathing and axial shift and focus shift while zooming are significantly reduced by Sony's innovative SMO (Smooth Motion Optics) design and construction.
