Angenieux and Cinema : From Light to Image, Hardback Book

Angenieux and Cinema : From Light to Image Hardback



The successful history of Pierre Angenieux's revolutionary zoom and focus technologies, a world reference in optics for cinema, photography and television. This book presents the history and current challenges of the Angenieux brand, a must in the world of cinema.

Angenieux zooms are present on the most prestigious film shoots from Hollywood to Bollywood, from Moonlight to Game of Thrones, to name only a few. The incredible epic of this brand began in 1935 with Pierre Angenieux: inventor of the Retrofocus, father of the concept of modern zoom with mechanical compensation, Pierre Angenieux revolutionised focal calculation and deployed unparalleled inventiveness throughout his life, making his workshops of Saint-Heand in France a world reference in optics for cinema, photography and television. The Angenieux zooms have been distinguished three times in Hollywood by the Academy of Oscars in 1964, 1989 and 2008, and were selected by NASA to participate in the extraordinary adventure of the space conquest.

The incredible achievement of Pierre Angenieux beyond the success of his company is the persistence of his work.

The principles he has developed and applied remain the basis of Angenieux's vision. Today, backed by the Thales group since 1993, the Angenieux brand continues to offer the best technological solutions for cinematographic image.
