New portable lens checker from P+S Technik

Designed to fit in a trolley case for easy transportation the P+S Technik LensChecker is a small, compact and mobile tool for evaluating lenses by projection. Despite its small size it offers maximum options for lens evaluation of cine, stills and vintage lenses, up to full frame format (Image Circle).

It can be used to check lenses when access to a fully equipped optics service department is not possible, for instance, evaluation of lenses during check-in or check-out at the rental house as well as in the field e.g. in a hotel room, or truck.

Currently available lens mounts

ARRI PL, BNC-R, B4, C-mount, Canon EF, Canon FD, Leica M, Leica R, Nikon F, Panavision.
