Proteus 2X Series Showreel Featuring 28 & 100mm

“Seek & Hide”, a short film directed by Antonio Negret and shot by Armando Salas, ASC, with the entire Laowa Proteus 2X Anamorphic Series. 
Check out the video below how Antonio and Armando demonstrated the full character of the Proteus lenses.


Classic Anamorphic x Modern Quality

For the last 2 years, we have been working closely with cinematographers and taking their opinions seriously. 
We are able to adapt state-of-the-art technology, to provide classic anamorphic characters with remarkable image quality.    

Regardless of the resolution or aspect ratio, the Laowa Proteus series can always support any kind of cinematic production.   

Patented Anamorphic Design


Laowa Proteus 2X Anamorphic Series adopted a front anamorphic design for a robust optical composition. 
It can deliver the image sharpness of modern quality while retaining the vintage look of anamorphic characteristics 
including elliptical bokeh and signature flares.

Constant 2X Squeeze Ratio

Delicately designed with a constant 2X squeeze ratio to exemplify the classic wide-screen anamorphic look for cinema use. 
It works comfortably with 4:3 or 6:5 sensors which are usually defaulted in professional cinema cameras to deliver a 2.66:1 or 2.4:1 image after de-squeeze. 
Cinematographers and filmmakers can use the footage entirely or crop to a 2.39:1 with minimal loss of resolution.  
With the precision in optical design, the 2X squeeze ratio can be achieved in any focus distance, maintaining the relative shape of the object and avoiding anamorphic mumps. 

Large Aperture

The iris ranges from T2 to T22 for the entire series, supporting filming in all light conditions and satisfying dynamic on-set needs. Ravishing shallow depth of field can be created at a large aperture and the lenses can render organic waterfall focus roll-off in the background, one of the distinct anamorphic characteristics that are wildly desired by the film industry.  

Outstanding Sharpness


The optical performance is fine-tuned to deliver excellent color rendition and contrast. The Proteus Series can reproduce high image 
quality and sharpness even when shooting wide openthe chromatic aberration is also well-controlled.  

Close Focusing Distance


Laowa Proteus Series has a minimum focusing distance of 55cm (1.8 feet)super close-up shots can be easily captured, 
cinematographers can have more variety in framing for story-telling. Also, the close-up shots usually generate a shallower 
depth of field to the image, which adds aesthetic and cinematic vibes to the frame.   

Pleasant Bokeh


Compare to 1.5X or 1.8X Anamorphic lenses, the Proteus Series can create elliptical bokeh in the out-of-focus that are thinner and longer
providing a more prominently anamorphic look to the shots.  

Amber, Silver & Blue Flare Options


Comes with a classic sci-fi blue, warm and elegant amber and neutral silver flare color options, cinematographers can choose 
the right flare color to set the tone for the film. The silver flare will change color according to the light source.

Low Focus Breathing


The Proteus lenses have a subtle change in the angle of view when the focusing distance is altered. 
It supports filmmakers to depict a scene by shifting the focus between subjects. 

Sensor Coverage

Having a super 35+ sensor coverage and can cover up to 21.6mm sensor height, the entire series is compatible with 
some full-frame cameras and most Super 35 cameras, including the latest Arri Alexa 35.

Work Proteus with Ease

Unified Gear Position — All Proteus lenses can be switched quickly between focal lengths to work with the same set of gears.
