Celere HS – New Affordable PL Lenses with Unified Weight

celere-cinema-primes

Celere is a new lens company based in Germany that specializes in high quality affordable PL lenses with unified weight and size. Today they are launching their first set of primes, the Celere HS 25mm T/1.5 & Celere HS 36mm T/1.5.

steven-kisilivich-celere-lenses-In development for 3 years, here come the first two lenses made by Celere and 2 more will follow later this year.

What is extraordinary about the Celere Cinema Primes is that they all have the same weight and size. According to Celere inventor and filmmaker Steven Kisilevich (left), they are the first of their kind in the world.

If you are involved in professional productions you will be aware that every minute on set is worth a lot. Swapping out a lens on a Steadicam or a brushless gimbal like the Freefly Movi can mean rebalancing and costs time. The Celere Primes were made to speed up the production process.

The Celere HS (High Speed) is currently a 4 lens kit (25mm, 36mm, 50mm & 85mm) costing about $3,000 per lens until the end of 2015. After that prices will go up slightly.

Today they launched their website where they are presenting a few videos showing off the performance and look of the 25mm & 26mm Primes:

After a phone conversation with inventor Steven Kisilevich it became clear to us that these lenses are intended to be used by professionals. Kisilevich said that the lenses are specifically designed for PL-mount and there will be no EF-mount version. While they are affordable PL lenses they were developed with high-end productions in mind to reach the standards Zeiss or Cooke are known for.

In terms of the coating Kisilevich said: “The Celere lenses are shipping with what we call a neutral look, which can be interpreted to having achieved as close to a Leica look as we could get.”

The lenses feature durable metal housings and they are made for resolutions up to 6K intended for use with the super 35 format, but will also cover Full Frame sensors without vignetting. Each HS lens has a maximum aperture of T/1.5.

celere-cinema-primes-2

The Celere HS 25mm and 36mm are both ready to ship right now. In the coming months the rest of the lenses will be made available. The 85mm will be available in November 2015, and the 50mm will follow in December or January. They plan to sell the first 50 sets in 2015 and these will cost around $3,000 per lens.

celere-cinema-primes-3

What’s next beyond these first 4 lenses? They are currently developing an 18mm prototype, intended to be ready by April 2016. Beyond that, they also plan to release a set of standard speed lenses (possibly T2.0 or T2.1) ranging from 16mm up to 135mm and finish all these within the year 2016 (16mm, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 27mm, 29mm, 32mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 135mm).

It is nice to see the kind of enthusiasm coming from a manufacturer. There has certainly gone a lot of craftsmanship and thinking into development of these lenses and it really looks like these are high end affordable PL lenses like we haven’t seen them before. We’re curious to follow the release of the next lenses they will release over the next months and see how they perform in the hands of other DPs.

The Celere HS Prime lenses are available through the Celere website for EU customers and at Hot Rod Cameras in the US.

Hi Marshall, one can always rent, borrow or buy a later day. I know because we’ve all been there, my partner Steven has rented lenses for years, still does, even though he started buying glass nearly 20 years ago.

this looks amazing. bokeh looks good if not great. bokeh balls are not completely round.

Hi Steve, thanks, the Bokeh’s do look amazing. We had a lot of people complementing us on the Bokeh’s. They are not completely round as one can see from a “pack-shot” still frame of the 36mm pictured above, because this was shot with the Celere HS 85mm wide open, T1.5. Most of the top high speed Cinema lenses are not round wide open. E.g. we chose to go with a unified eight-leaf iris module, just like the Leica Summicron-C, Cooke S4’s and Cooke S4 mini’s (Cooke S5’s use 7-leaf, Master & Ultra Primes use 9-leaf). Personally, I wished it would… Read more »

While I do prefer completely spherical bokeh balls it’s amazing you could get a lens kit that is so fast out there so inexpensively. But honestly I do wish you would’ve gone with more aperture blades.

Lars Andersen
Guest

I hear you Steve, but my Partner Steven is obsessed with Anamorphic lenses and the look / Bokeh therefrom. I don’t have to tell you how elliptical he likes his Bokeh’s : )

Daniel Christie
Member

I tend to agree with Steven, I find a more spherical bokeh more visually pleasing. I’m not sure I agree that the octagonal bokeh is really an anamorphic look at all. Certainly not elliptical Comparing it to the Leicas and even the seven bladed Super Speeds, I think what looks nicer on those lenses is that the iris is slightly rotated so that the edges are not parallel to the top, bottom and sides of the frame. It makes all the difference and makes it a lot less distracting and off putting.

That aside… amazing.

Daniel Christie

Also some sort of weird pattern inside the bokeh…

That breathing in those two lenses used in demonstration is atrocious. Who would buy these when so many better options are available in a similar prices range… both vintage and new PL glass..

Илија Каравлах
Member

breathing is not bad at all. if you go on the Celer website you can see comparative tests of same subject taken with Ultra Prime and Summicron C. take a look at UP and you will see that breathing is almost the same. Leica breathes bit less but it also costs 15 000 Eur per lens. Racking focus form one to the other side of a range will always look heavy on any lens

 Celere Lenses
Member
Celere Lenses

Hi Zsigmond, unfortunately I do not know how you came to this conclusion, as we demonstrated on our website / Vimeo, the Celere breathes slightly more than the Summicron but less than the Ultra Prime. Watch the end of the videos where we shot against the checker board, the UP 32mm does breathe more than the Celere 36mm, again the Summicron breathes as well, only a little less than Celere. We have a set of Cooke S5’s and had a set of Master Primes, they were the only lenses I saw no breathing / on a couple focal lenghts next… Read more »

They may be cheaper than other lenses, but if you’re paying that much for a lens there shouldn’t be so much breathing.

If anyone has other facts or proof to prove or disprove, please post it, the evidence, real facts rather than speculation, educated guesses or heresy. That is all I ask. If anyone wants to see breathing, by all means they are welcome to rent some CP.2’s from us.

When the bokeh is not round means the lens needs more work on it. It’s just too x

We have been receiving a lot of feedback, and very positive for the bokeh, many believe we nailed it. We shot these photos through a store front window using the Celere HS 36mm.

The first thing that threw me off was the bokeh and the color chart differences to be honest. The iris blades are too pronounced giving a “eng video” look and man that chart compared to the higher end lenses says the difference in price right there. Imo.

Affordable for high end pros who don’t need them. STOP BAITING WITH “AFFORDABLE”.

Hi sheldon, sorry, I hear you, your right, affordable is as clear as muddy water. A wide open door for interpretation. Maybe that will have to be changed on the website, it has only been online for a little over a day and we have seen an amazing flood of viewers from many different countries who have already visited. Thanks for the tip!

cinema5D

Hey, there’s always a reason we write “affordable”. These lenses are MADE FOR “high-end pros”, so in this regard they are pretty affordable I’d say, IF they are truly as good as the manufacturer claims…

Crimson Son
Member
Crimson Son

How is the word “affordable” baiting. Its a value judgement. And compared to their competitors – CP.2 and such – I think it qualifies as being affordable.

What lens are you comparing it to? Being more than what YOU are willing to pay for it does not mean it is not affordable.

Sheldon Norton
Guest

I would suggest 80% of your readers are not full time cinematographers but Indie filmmakers who use 5Ds and the like.

Mac Ruiz
Guest

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce that these are not rokinon classic lenses and therefore not that kind of affordability.

Sheldon Norton
Guest

Precisely, so why label them affordable on a 5D website.

Sheldon Norton
Guest

Ironically, least of all a rocket scientist would be able to tell the difference between a side by side comparison on anything other than MAYBE a theatrical sized screen, between these and Rokinon.

Lars Andersen
Guest

because for many they are affordable, but I think we covered this topic already. They are affordable, those who are buying from us right now have bought other lens sets that cost more, some even 10x more for each lens. Based on that, they actually are affordable on the higher end Cinema lens market. I repeat, they are not designed for the DSLR or VDSLR market, hense we choose to stay only with PL-mount. The professionals know they are getting a deal, that is all that matters to us.

Alexis Ayala
Guest

These are listed as affordable because frankly, they are. Everything is relative. For what you’re getting this is a hell of a deal. It’s never a good idea to presume your point of view is something everyone has. Regardless of whether you fit the demographic these were designed for or not, its still relevant to read about. It’s always good to know what’s happening in the space. So when you do find yourself in a position where spending a few grand makes sense, you’re already going in informed.

Sheldon Norton
Guest

I concede! 3K vs 15K is affordable.

And using the word baiting was unwarranted.

Steve Oakley

No digging the star effect even fairly wide open. the distinct apeture blades also leaves a lot to be desired. I have some vintage and modern glass like the rokinons I’d shoot over these anyday….

 Celere Lenses
Member
Celere Lenses

Hi Steve, have you seen the effects on the Cooke S4’s, at T2.8, it moves into a slight ninja star bokeh, kind of cool. The other lenses we posted had the star effect as well. But Steve, no problem, I can understand, I have never shot with Rokinons, so unfortunately I cannot comment. Steve I am curious how can one shim Rokinons on a Collimator for proper back focus, has anyone ever done this, friends of mine from Edmonton, Alberta asked me this. Thanks.

Steve Oakley
Member

Well the first thing you’d need to do with the rokinons is really re-label the lenses because the focus marks are so far apart on most of the lenses its a moot point. you just make FF marks instead on the disc. The Xeen’s coming soon though which are properly marked, with curved 9 blade irises which should really be nice. I also noted the wooly effect on the 36mm, although I’ve seen other lenses do it too. not something I care for either. No I haven’t shot with the S4’s but if they also made star effects wide open… Read more »

Hi Shamar, 3000 is not a high price, this is a topic that has no right answer. Orders have been flowing in, so yes, for some people they are affordable. Think about it, try to build a set of lenses with all the features we implemented, even glow in the dark barrel markings! For alot of DSLR (VDSLR), yes this may be out of their price range, maybe down the road they can purchase and rent till then. In the professional cine lens market, this is a deal, for 3000.

comments smell like samyang teen spirits here.

But seriously, great job Celere. Looks like proper build quality, sharp, low contrast, very nice rendering of skin tones and 1.4T for $3k a pop !!! Come one guys thats dirt cheap for a cine lens

I am eager to get my hands on them and test it out and if thats al true standing ovations for Celere team. Do you guys build/make the optics?

 Celere Lenses

Hi Paul, thanks for the complements and support. We do not build or make the optics ourselves, we have 3 different companies who are manufacturing the individual lens elements for us. It just so happens that I will be contracting one of these companies in Germany to prototype something new!

Comprehensive answer, thank you.

So I guess my next question based on the latter part of your reply is: What would you compare them to? I mean are they warm/forgiving like Cooke/Canon Cine, or clinical/sharp like Arri/Zeiss. Or somewhere in between like Schnieder?

Stuart Dennis
Guest

Also are you doing specific mounts of an interchangeable solution?

Lars Andersen
Guest

We call it the neutral look, comes closest to Leica Summicron-C and Leica Summilux. Stuart, check out the SALT I & SALT II tests on Reduser for some good comparisons of Leica glass to other lenses. No, Celere HS will stay as a PL-mount version. Many rental companies are happy with this because they do not always have to change, shim and re-Collimate their lens sets all the time. That costs them a lot of time and money that nobody pays for. They can just take a Collimated PL to E-mount / Micro 4/3’s adapter off the shelf and put… Read more »

A good quality compact lightweight and complete highspeed set option for a fair price is needed and has not been in out the lens market for a while but also it would need to have a wider angle option and some other focal lenghts specially telephotos, thats where most manufacturers fail and have been failing with incomplete sets.

Matt Chauncey

3 grand is pretty cheap considering the Summicrons are close to 15k a lens. Uniform weight is a huge advantage if they’re 2 pounds or under. I love the Cooke mini S4s but they’re heavy for a Movi or Ronin. Their 18mm is almost 4lbs. That’s 2lbs more than the Zeiss CP2 18mm. I would totally consider getting a set of these lenses if the color representation was solid, if they’re sharp at 2.8 or better and they don’t weigh over 2-2.5 lbs.

Luca Travaglini

The matter is Cooke and Leica produce amazing glasses. Here you pay for the housing but the glass is not better than an average still lens.

Hi Matt, The Celere HS Lenses are all colour balanced, they can hold their own at already T2.0 among the big boys lenses from the footage of projects people have been sending back to us. They weigh 2.31 lbs. The glass elements weigh more than one expects, especially if one is wanting to cover the Red Weapon sensor size. Steven showed me one of his older zoom lenses from the 1980’s, he bought it new back then, it is a Vivitar Series 1 zoom, 70-210 f2.8.

Very excited about these lenses! Reasonably priced. And these initial images look like they will help telling a good story

Hi Lyle, it is not a typo, it is an 85mm front. In Europe 85mm can be had easily, I bought mine from Chrosziel for the Compendium. There are adapter rings for 85mm as well. We will be selling on the Celere website, in the near future, for the LMB-4 / LMB-5 the adapter as well. We will always endeavour to meet the demands of the working professionals if something small such as an 85mm donut / adapter ring is missing. But you are right, 85mm has not been a standard. – “I coulda been a contender. I coulda been… Read more »
