Key Features

True Cine Look

Ranging from 15 mm to 135 mm, the ten focal lengths available in the ZEISS Compact Prime CP.3 XD series cover all applications from wide-angle to telephoto. The CP.3 XD lenses feature advanced lens coatings, painted lens rims and special light traps within the barrel to eliminate unwelcome veiling glare and flare. The result; higher contrast, richer blacks and more saturated colours.
 

  • Clean and crisp ZEISS look which matches perfectly with other ZEISS cinema lenses
  • Colour matching and covering full frame across the full range of focal lengths from 15 to 135 mm
  • Special lens coatings support high-dynamic range projects

ZEISS eXtended Data Technology - Expanding Your Possibilities

The ZEISS eXtended Data technology adds new opportunities to simplify and increase the accuracy of the image capture and processing workflow. ZEISS eXtended Data unifies two data sets: key lens data based on the open /i* Technology standard and supported by a wide range of cameras and accessories, plus ZEISS specific lens data that contains precise lens characteristics.
 

  • A unique technology that provides information about the lens’ distortion and shading characteristics in real time to speed-up the workflow on set and in post-production
  • Lens settings are digitally captured on every frame, avoiding the need to manually record the lens settings for every shot
  • Documentation of the lens’ characteristics enhances creativity by allowing more complex shots to be handled in post-production

Ultimate Cinematic Ergonomics

The ZEISS CP.3 XD lenses are a professional toolset that simplifies your work on set. They are easy to handle, allow for fast changeover of equipment and give you great creative freedom to make your ideas come to life.
 

  • Standardized positioning of the focus rings and a consistent 95 mm front diameter allows for fast and easy changeover while on set
  • Extraordinarily smooth focus rotation even in extreme temperature conditions thanks to a new, sophisticated construction design
  • Consistent T-stops simplifies lighting on set and exposure compensations (T2.9 for 15 to 21 mm and T2.1 for 25 to 135 mm)

Compactness Redefined

The compact and light-weight design enables you to use different stabilizing systems and to have a compact camera setup, ideal for shooting in narrow spaces and for capturing dynamic shots.
 

  • The compact and light-weight design is ideal for handheld, gimbal, drone and steadicam applications
  • Consistent size and weight across most of the focal lengths enables quick change of lenses when used on drones and gimbals
  • The ultra-smooth focus rotation allows use of small focus motors
