The ‘Cooke Look’: SPIE Congratulates Optics Firm on Oscar for Well-loved Lens Technology

table planets" onclick="linkClick(this.href)">Kepler search for habitable planets, solar collectors for sustainable energy, or microscopes and endoscopes for medical diagnostics, optical design is a crucial contributor,” he said.

“The Cooke name has been associated with cinematography since the very earliest days of the cinema,” said Jonathan Maxwell, a lens design consultant who has worked with Cooke and other lens designers and has taught professional development courses for SPIE and other societies.

Headquartered in Leicester, UK,Cooke began working with George Eastman (later Kodak) in the 1890s, and worked with Bell & Howell on the first newsreel zoom lens in 1931, Technicolor on custom color-separation lenses from the early 1930s to the 1960s, and The Rank Organisation on zoom lenses for television and later film from the 1950s to the 1990s, Maxwell said.

“The revered ‘Cooke Look’ is characterized by a sympathetic color depth in the images, combined with an adjusted coincidence between the sharpest image and the optimum chromatic focus,” he explained. “Camera teams really do like the look and the way the lenses handle and focus ergonomically, with linear irises and focusing scales. They praise the way the lenses perform under difficult lighting conditions and in rugged meteorological and geographical circumstances.”
