Nauticam Arri 9.5 – 18mm Lens Test from Nauticam on Vimeo.
We brought out the Nauticam RED Epic/Dragon PL housing to test out the all new ARRI Ultra Wide Zoom UWZ 9.5-18mm lens.
The lens is the first super wide-angle zoom lens for the professional cinema market. With an unusually accommodating image circle of 34.5 mm, the UWZ has been designed for both existing and future generations of large-sensor digital cameras such as the ARRI Alexa, ARRI Alexa Mini, and RED Dragon.
Distortion is at a level of less than 1% at 9.5 mm and less than 0.1% at 18 mm, which means that straight lines stay straight, even at close focus.
