how is the ANGENIEUX 12-240mm ZOOM

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was wondering if anyone has ever used the ANGENIEUX-12-240mm-ZOOM-LENS-in-ARRI-Mount? It's going to be on an Arri-S

 

I need a lot of zoom to shoot surfing shot for a project. The surfer are up to 250 meters away. Would this be a good choice?

 

What is a comparable lense to Angenieux 12-240 that you guys would recommend?

 

Also, would a lense of this size need extra support (Rods / tripod collar) on an Arri-S? Or can I just mount the lense on the camera without extra support?

 

here's the link to the lense:

Thanks in advance

I've never used that lens.

 

I'd think you'd want the support. With Std mount especially.

 

As alternative their are the Optex Canon conversions but would be B or PL mount and cost quite a few $$ more.

I've owned one briefly, but didn't use it, because it definetly needs support. It's at least 12 inches long, and the front thread is 107mm. It's comparable in size to 25-250 Angenieux. My understanding is, it's about the same quality as the 12-120, which can be decent if serviced. The auction price is a little high for ebay, I bought and sold mine there for around $300.

I've only used the 12 to 240 once. It's big and you should use support, the picture quality looked typical Angenieux of the period.

I just bought that lens and shoot some surfing myself. It cost me 400 on ebay, I may have commited a mistake but for Motorcycle racing, surfing, and sports that are usually outdoors but far away that 250 comes in very handy. I hope to shoot with it soon and i'll let you know.
