We know how important it is to protect your gear. Our Irix lenses are made with phenomenal precision. Each Irix lens is equipped with a weather sealed construction which protects the interior against dust and moisture. Thanks to inner seals, our lenses are also protected from accidental water splashes. No matter the journey, you can be confident that our weather sealed lenses will offer you maximum resistance to the extremes.
Combining capabilities specific to analogue photography with ingenious technology and solutions, the Irix lens is the perfect tool for both professionals and hobbyists. The new special features such as focus lock, infinity click and hyperfocal scale set a new level of manual lens functionality. Focus lock enables to lock the focus ring at any time enssuring the chosen settings. Hyperfocal distance scale gives information about the accessible range for depth of field for a given aperture simply and intuitively. When the focusing ring is set in the “infinity” position, there is a noticeable “click” (infinity click), making it easier to find the value without looking. Now you can fix your eyes on the image and concentrate on the composition.
Irix Blackstone is where classic design meets maximum functionality, achieving the perfect match of innovative technology. The durable aluminium and magnesium body ensures foolproof protection of your lens, even in extreme conditions. Engraved fluorescent markings that reflect the light enable easy operation in all lighting conditions.
The retaining ring of the frontal lens is free from engraving, printing or any other form of marking. This therefore prevents unwanted internal reflections when using high density filters.
You can lock the focus ring at any time securing the setting that you choose. Precision, comfort and ingenious solutions. Irix 11mm comes with Electronic Aperture Control allowing you to control the aperture value via your camera. Auto Exposure/ AE is part of this fantastic feature helping the user to select the exposure value automatically.
While IRIX has made every effort to ensure that each lens leaving the factory has been properly calibrated, the lens is designed to allow you the unique opportunity to calibrate the lens for a particular model of your camera. This ensure your focusing is always accurate to your expectation.
IRIX lenses are made with extreme precision. Each Irix lens is equipped with a weather sealed construction that protects the interior against dust and moisture. Thanks to inner seals, our lenses are also protected from accidental water splashes.
