Back in the 1970′s Stanley Kubrick got his hands on some Zeiss f/0.7 lenses originally developed for NASA so they could photograph the dark side of the moon. Kubrick then had them fitted for use on a Mitchell BNC camera and used them to shoot the candlelit scenes in his 1975 film, Barry Lyndon.

P+S Technik is now offering their PS-Cam X35 HD camera fitted with a BNC-R lens mount that will accept Kubrick’s Zeiss f/0.7 lenses.

Available from P+S Technik’s rental partners; Otto Nemenz in Los Angeles, Joe Dunton Camera in Wilmington, NC, Take 2 Film Services in London, and FGV Schmidle in Munich, the Kubrick Collection includes the BNC-R PS-Cam, the 35mm and 50mm f/0.7 Zeiss lenses, and six re-housed vintage Cooke Speed Panchro lenses.
