ALPA Cine Lenses

Product Group Description

ALPA is reviving a historical and style-forming brand in the field of cinematography: Introducing the unique ALPA SWITAR Cine Primes, the formerly well-known brand for the 16 mm format now plays in the top league of large sensor formats. The comfortable image circle of 70 mm offers more than enough reserves for all digital cine sensor formats known today. It can also be used with the Fujifilm GFX100 and the ALPA Platon without any problems. No problem with ALPA Switar Cine Primes.

The ALPA SWITAR Cine Primes offer a shimable PL mount as standard. To make the life of the user as easy as possible, each lens comes with an individually calibrated adapter mount for the new shimable LPL port. In this way, SWITAR Cine Primes can move quickly and efficiently between the two worlds and are automatically future-proofed. This sense of practicality has also prompted ALPA to develop an M88 to M95 filter adapter. Where space is limited or mounted to rigs, a compendium is often too bulky and impractical. With the help of a filter adapter, the operator circumnavigates this cliff elegantly.

All ALPA Cine Switar lenses come with PL mount, clever LPL adapter mount, shims and M88 to M95 filter adapter.

ARRI PL MOUNT

The Arri PL (Positive Lock) mount is the most common adapter type for cine lenses. The mount contains four pronged flanges that each contain a notch towards the center. Any of these four notches can be used to align the mount to a locating pin located approximately 45 degrees clockwise from the top of the camera’s lens mount. This means that the lens can be oriented in any of four different configurations, which may be decided by factors such as  [focus puller](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focus_puller)  position, camera position, and preference to working with meters or feet (if a lens has different line indicators on each side).

The mount is locked into place using a friction locking ring that, in conjunction with the four prongs of the flange, creates a very strong lens seating. This has become a crucial factor in recent years, as bigger lenses with zoom capabilities, longer focal lengths, or larger lens elements have increased the need for mount stability due to the greater stress placed upon the mount by these devices.

Flange focal distance: 52.00 mm
Diameter: 54.00 mm
