ARRI Ultra Wide Zoom 9.5-18 mm



More details on ARRI’s UWZ 9.5-18 mm T2.9 Ultra Wide Zoom. But first some thoughts on where it might be used, and on what kind of scenes: underwater, aerials, POVs from trains, planes, automobiles. The 8R is a wonderful lens, but sometimes we have the irresistible urge to zoom in slightly or change focal length during the shot–especially when the lens is mounted in a rig or remote. VFX and plate shots. A low angle gliding shot looking forward if anyone is thinking of a sequel, “Son of The Shining.” “Here’s UWZ!”
