(On Okja) I tested Primo 70s and System 65s and chose the Primos for their modernity. We also had access to great and knowledgeable people: Panavision's Dan Sasaki was able to fine-tune these T2 lenses for us so there wasn't that too-hard, contrasty, digital sharpness. We liked having a nice falloff on the close-focus lenses, which let me shoot close-ups with wider angles but without image deformation." ” – Darius Khondji, ASC, AFC

We shoot a lot of handheld on THE PATH, and Chris Konash at Panavision in New York designed a ‘hot swap box’ that sits on the camera allowing us to reduce cables and drop a battery. That little box is a huge help on a show where we shoot several cameras handheld. I’ve had a great relationship with Panavision. Whenever I have an issue, they solve it. The hot swap box solution in response to my specific demand to lighten our loads was truly invaluable.” – Yaron Orbach, Cinematographer

The choice of lenses – both old and new and everything in between – is impressive. I was able to find and adjust the right line of lenses for each of my shows, and Panavision’s support and expertise have proven to be an incredible asset, making the production process both liberating and creatively stimulating.” – Manuel Billeter (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the upcoming Iron Fist)

I have a wonderful set of lenses, the G Series anamorphic prime lenses from Panavision (on Animal Kingdom). We get incredible flares. The way the light behaves when it hits the lens, things that people might consider a flaw, is really wonderful.

With Panavision, I’m not just getting equipment – they are partners in helping me put together the right tools for my projects. Regardless of the budget, I receive the same great service. They help me to achieve the look I want for each project by suggesting the best gear for the job. That assistance in formulating my approach is invaluable, and fuels my creative process.

Panavision is an icon to us. Just saying we were shooting on Panavision made us (director Jeff Nichols) grin and tremble in fear all at the same time. We knew we had to bring our 'A-Game' to Mud, because we were about to shoot on some hallowed equipment.
