Cooke Telepanchro – Taylor Hobson 317mm T4 Prime
Taylor Hobson 317mm (12 and a half inch prime) T4. Once a producer of 80% of the world supply of cinema lenses, Taylor Hobson lenses hold unparalleled quality for the era.
This 12 and a half inch prime lens is the perfect telecine compliment to the Cooke Speed Panchros with a warm image and the same circular iris opening for a rounded bokeh. Perhaps most of all this Taylor Hobson matches Cooke Speed Panchros with the characteristic breathing and outer third drop-off. Shoot wide open at T4 for a slight warm halo or stop to T5.6 for a sharper rendition of the classic “Cooke look.”
