KEY ELEMENTS OF IMAGE COMPOSITION


BY SELECTION OF LENS:

realistic images. This development is driven by improve-

of the image and to focus on the essential

ments in mathematics as well as increasing processing


power of computers. Back in the 19th century the
creation of lenses usable for photography and since
1895 for cinematography was the achievement of brilliant engineers.

Look and character of a lens transports emotions

Spatial image distortion (Petzval surface)

Disturbing and supporting artefacts caused

of reality, can be described, minimized and sometimes


completely suppressed by algorithms. The result is
near-perfect optics.
The creative filmmaker naturally has other criteria. Not
the perfect image of reality, but a tool to tell the story
coherently; this is expected from a lens. Does the look
work, works the scene. The look, the character of a lens
for specific applications is of great importance. Image

Restoration of Vintage Lenses
GLASS
At the beginning of lens development (for astronomical
and nautical instruments) only crown and flint glass were
available. The mathematician Carl Friedrich Gau theoretically demonstrated in 1840 that optical aberrations
can be corrected by combination of different refractive
glass sorts. Later, new glass types were researched with
scientific methods. In 1884 the Glastechnische Laboratori-

CEMENTED LENS ELEMENTS


Many lenses contain a doublet or triplet lens group and
the cement holding the elements together might open over
time. Re-gluing the elements is quite easy. The difficult
part is to completely separate the cemented elements
without damage. This is especially difficult if a repair
has been carried out improperly before, as todays high
performance UV glue usually cant be dissolved again.
Theres a constant risk of fracturing thin lenses.

um, later Jenaer Glaswerke & Gen., was founded by Otto


Schott, Ernst Abbe, Carl Zeiss and Roderich Zeiss in Jena.
The engineers used the new glass sorts, but not all side
effects were known then. The consequences were colour
tint glasses and stains, so most of those lenses had low
environmental resistance over time. Not all those original
glass types are available today, but reasonable substitutes
can be used for recreating some spare lens elements.

COATING
In 1930 the first lens elements were vaporized
with an anti-reflective
coating by Zeiss. Using
those coated elements,
it was possible to build
much better corrected
lenses with several grouped lens elements. Vintage lenses

CRIMPED LENS ELEMENTS


The individual lens element or group must be positioned
very accurately inside the lens block. Historically various
techniques have been used. Each manufacturer preferred
other techniques. The crimping technique makes it
extremely difficult to restore a lens element. With the
crimped metal rim polishing and a recoating bath is
impossible. The highly complex Cold Vacuum Coating is
the only method available in such cases.

LENS APERTURE
Historical lens manufacturers had considerable problems
to produce non-reflective iris blades. In some cases the
complete iris must be replaced.

or Disturbing
Artefacts?

OTHER DAMAGES
Older lenses sometimes
show fungus marks,
especially if the lens
wasnt stored in a dry
place for a longer period of time. In most cases fungus
can be removed completely. Cleaning marks and stains
can usually be removed with polishing and re-coating
of the lens elements. A yellow colour tint due to a radioactive Thorium component of the glass sort can usually
be removed in a decolourization process.

Below find an incomplete summary of optical aberrations generally found with


lenses and more noticeably with historical lenses. Some of those aberrations
are very often a source for creative application. More complete descriptions
of all aberrations are available at www.wikipedia.com.

is ready for modern handling and
meets todays requirements on set.
Unlike in state-of-the-art lens design,
we have to handle the whole glass
block as one piece. In one large
set we find large and heavy lens
blocks for some focal lengths and
for others tiny flyweights, but very
close to the sensor, thus creating
very specific challenges for mechanic design. Integrating both in a similar housing to offer the same handling and interfaces for lens motors
