16mm Lenses:

Known for their light weight & high speeds; 16mm lenses pack a punch with their small size and excellent close focus ability. For those who want to shoot on celluloid, 16mm was first popular as a safe, budget-friendly alternative to 35mm film stock.16mm film has faced a resurgence in the motion picture world as more cinematographers aim for the unique aesthetic imagery it creates. With digital camera manufacturers like Ikonoskop & Bolex designing smaller image sensors or manufacturers offering a ‘cropped sensor’ feature on large format cameras, old 16mm lenses that once collected dust are back in demand and being given new opportunities.
