With the emergence and proliferation of digital cinema cameras with large sensors, the demand for corresponding interchangeable lenses has also seen a sharp increase.

With its CP.3 and CZ.2 families of lenses, ZEISS offers a universal solution in this regard.
Joseph Rubinstein is a cinematographer in Los Angeles, the founding member of Digital Bolex, and a life long film enthusiast. He had the chance to shoot his latest project MISCREANTS with the new ZEISS CP.3 lenses.
The ZEISS CP.3 and CP.3 XD lenses offer the perfect combination of high image quality and reliable usability. Our friends from HOTSHOT Magazine were granted a look behind the curtain of ZEISS's development process for this new lens family.
