  • Module 8 L3 Tuner - Retroscope Variable Look Lens - EF Lens to E/RF Camera

    SKU: M8L3EF

    The Module 8 L3 Tuner is an innovative new lens that transforms your modern digital cameras into a nostalgic dream machine, created by 13x Academy Award Winner and legendary cinema lens designer Iain Neil. It unlocks the cinematic magic of vintage films with a simple twist on lens adapter, available in three distinct looks. The L3 Tuner is Module 8’s co-founder Iain A. Neil signature look and is the culmination of decades of experience designing some of the most iconic cinematic lenses, especially anamorphic. L3 gives you the funky astigmatic characteristics of classic anamorphic lenses, even though you are using spherical optics. L3 will simulate the vertical / horizontal depth of field effects seen on vintage anamorphic glass (without the flares or bokeh). Most lens tunings focus on halation and glow, or simple filed curvature. The L3 creates a very complex effect that adds off-axis character.


    The Tuner seamlessly integrates into your existing camera rig and allows adjustment of the look and character of your images in real time, during the shot. No more hunting down expensive lenses, paying exorbitant lens rehousing fees, or investing in the latest hyped up “detuned prime lenses”. The Module 8 Tuners work seamlessly with your existing glass to create the cinematic looks cherished by the top Cinematographers. The Tuners now come in two lens mounts, EF and PL. The EF Tuners are compatible with Sony E Mount and RF Mounts on Canon and RED cameras. The EF Tuners include build in electronics support for autofocus, aperture control and image stabilization of electronic lenses from Canon, Sigma and Tamron are supported.
