The Cooke S4i lenses are a world-renowned lens manufactured here in the UK. They have become a hugely popular lens for feature films, giving warm and pleasing skin tones alongside smooth contrast and a pleasant amount of sharpness. Cooke have been making lenses for over 100 years and their ‘Cooke Look’ has always been sought after by DP’s.
