Purpose-designed for large format motion picture imaging, Blackwing7 lenses from Tribe7 represent an entirely new range of tuned optics for contemporary film makers to use within their creative story telling.

Blackwing7 optics exhibit unique imaging properties which arise from the introduction of controlled distortion during the development and manufacturing processes. This distortion is modular and allows a level of tuneability over key parameters which shape many creative characteristics of the lenses.

Blackwing7 lens tuning allows parameters such as sharpness, contrast, roll-off, spherical aberration, field curvature, edge halation and flare to be modified to provide sets of “curated” optics to suit the personality and intent of the owner.

Many of the design cues for Blackwing7 originate in optics manufactured during the 1930 – 1960s, but the real inspiration behind the lenses lies in the evolutionary nature of experimental music and audio synthesis, and the process of creating distortion through sound amplification.

B-Tuned (Bespoke) Blackwings exhibit a green/blue ghost flare and the optics have edge-uncoating offering lower contrast.
