Hey Everyone,

 

I just bought a vintage Cooke Panchro S2 and S3 set, but cant tell if they are 35mm format or 16mm.

I would love to get some help from our community.

 

The photos are attached below..

 

PLEASE HELP!

 

PS. Is the ARRI ALEXA and the Cooke Panchro s2 and s3 set a good combination? Quality? etc....

I'd love suggestions from all of you.

 

Thank You.

Speed Panchros were 35mm format lenses, the 16mm format lenses were branded Cooke Kinetals. 

 

If ever in doubt, a simple trick is to point a lens up to a bright window (preferably one with contrast detail like slats or blinds) with the iris wide open, and hold a piece of white paper about an inch or so behind the rear element. Play with adjusting the distance slightly until a sharp image forms, which will give an indication of the image circle size and whether or not it covers a 35mm frame.
