We are adding a new 55mm LS f/2.8, 80mm LS f/2.8 and 150mm LS f/3.5 to the “Blue Ring” family.
The lenses are manufactured to meet our highest standards. Improved quality assurance and tighter tolerances, producing better, more reliable lenses.

A-series extends compatibility332_a-series

The new A-series IQ3 System is now fully compatible with the XF Camera Systems. New Factory Lens Calibrations (FLC) have been engineered for each of the new A-series IQ3 Digital Backs, so that A-series users can simply select the lens they’re using from the touch screen and shoot, eliminating the need to later create Lens cast corrections.
The A-series IQ3 System is a true example of the open-platform philosophy of Phase One.

Guitarist Andy Summers Photographed the Rise and Fall of The Police

Based on the acclaimed memoir by renowned guitarist Andy Summers, Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police follows Summers’ journey from his early days in the psychedelic ‘60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, The Police.

During the band’s phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the early ’80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs.

Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist’s side of the stage, Can’t Stand Losing You brings together past and present as the band members reunite, two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007.
