ALPA Platon with Leitz Cine Thalia Lenses

The ALPA PLATON system combines sensors with diameters of more than 60mm with modern cine lenses to create a compact and powerful unit, opening up entirely new possibilities for filmmakers: The large sensor allows you to work with selective depth of field and gives the pictures a captivating three-dimensionality and plasticity. At the same time, the small format factor allows the system to be used in gimbals and makes it the ideal B camera for other 65mm systems. The ALPA PLATON system offers you numerous connection options such as Arri rosettes, NATO rail, ULCS balls, and 15mm rod systems.
