Paper Abstract

In our digital age, digital cinematography is gaining importance. Therefore the camera lens division of Carl Zeiss decided to extend its conventional cine lenses with a set of digital prime lenses, the DigiPrimes. These lenses are designed for High Definition Television (HDTV) cameras with three 2/3-inch format CCD-Chips and a beamsplitter HDTV prism. There are six lenses with an effective focal length from 5mm to 40mm. The lenses have a telecentric design on the image side, because of the color separating prism. We will discuss some aspects of the mechanical and optical design and their influence on each other.
