Hi,

I read in a book that an Angenieux zoom was used in Barry Lyndon, but it was not specified which zoom. To my knowledge, the two Angenieux 35mm zoom lenses at the time (1975) were the 20-120(T2.9) and the 25-250(T3.9).

Do any of you have this info?

Best Regards,
Milo

As it states, Cinema Products, using Angenieux elements, created the Cine-Pro T/9 24-480mm for Kubrick.

Kubrick also used a number of still camera and even 16mm camera lenses adapter for his movie cameras. Cinema Products adapted a 20:1 Ang. 16mm zoom for "Clockwork Orange" for example by using a rear extender, as mentioned in LoBrutto's biography on Kubrick. This was something that Haskell Wexler had suggested to Kubrick (in fact, there was an AC article on Wexler using 16mm zooms on his 35mm Cameflex.)

I believe the Cooke zooms were introduced in the early 1970's as well.

Hi,

The Cooke 20-100 was launched in 1971. Kubrick owned one and used it on many films including The Shinning and Eyes Wide Shut.

And the next opportunity to see all of Kubrick's favourite lenses:

STANLEY KUBRICK ON VIEW
Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne)
November 24, 2005 until January 29, 2006

and

Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome.
April 21 until August 2006

Among the great number of lenses from Kubrick's collection, the Cinepro zoom from Barry Lyndon, the Cooke zoom which Stephen mentioned, many still photography lenses adapted for 35mm cine and of course the original Zeiss f0.7 lens on Kubrick's rebuilt Mitchell BNC will be on display.

Here's more on the exhibition:
