Cooke Optics Factory

Each Cooke lens is hand crafted at the factory in Leicester, U.K, using a combination of state-of-the-art technology, traditional 100-year-old techniques and personal dexterity that come together to create the “Cooke Look”. Our company is also the developer behind /i Technology, the protocol enabling vital lens and camera information to be captured and passed digitally to post-production teams.

Cooke Optics can trace its origins back to the dawn of the movies in the 1880s and has originated many innovations over the years, including zoom lenses for movie cameras, “fast” prime lenses that eliminated the need for bright lights, and more recently its ground-breaking /i Technology and anamorphic lenses. At Cooke Optics, we know our customers and they know us, as individuals. Our rental partners do their training next to the craftsman who built their lenses. There are no barriers.
