TLS has designed a full re-housing for the renowned Cooke Telepancro 152mm/T3.2. This allows customers to update old lenses to work with modern equipment to take advantage of the unique image that vintage Cooke glass creates.
This process will reinvigorate the lens to match and compliment the rest of your TLS Speed Panchro set.
Upgrade process includes:
Full lens service
New stainless steel PL mount
Aluminium alloy and stainless steel housing
New cam form focus drive
High calibre focus and iris rings
Engraved dual focus scales
Standard 110mm front ring
The Morpheus is the result of a request from Arri Media to redesign an 80-200mm Nikon for the 2006 Bond Feature, which TLS has since further refined and put into production.
Designed to be lightweight; at 2.3kg (5.07lbs) they are ideal for steadicam, hand held, small camera setups and remotely operated rigs.
The optical design of this lens exhibits superb optical performance, rendering great images on film and has been optimized for digital cameras.
AR coatings reduce flares and veiling glare for deep, rich blacks and a wide contrast range, whilst the Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass reduces chromatic aberrations, critical for digital camera sensors. The 9 leaf iris generates round, out of focus highlights and a pleasing, organic bokeh.
The lenses ergonomics demonstrates TLS’s experience in designing and engineering tools for today's practical shooting situations. Robust construction, easy to read large scales and the same 110mm front diameter as the TLS Speed Panchro and the Cooke prime range ensures that using these lenses on set is quick and efficient.

Currently in development, the Aurora 24-70mm is a TLS mid-range zoom and the second in line of the three lens Titan zoom range, which use Nikon glass. All of the lenses in this range are fixed T2.8 speed and cover the full frame 35mm format (36 x 24mm) that comfortably cover 6K sensors, which further proofs your optical investment.
The ergonomics and build quality of the lens are akin to the 80-200mm Morpheus, with a 110mm front diameter, easy to read scales in your choice of either metric or imperial markings, integrated lens support ring, standard 0.8" pitch focus, zoom and iris gears, expanded iris scale and an industry standard PL mount.
The most notable modification is the expanded and reserved focus mechanism, in order to correct the Nikon focus barrel direction and operate the correct way for film operations.
Containing the same optics as inside the Nikon’s best mid range zoom for Nikon 35mm and FX format digital cameras, and just like the 80-200mm, the AR coatings reduce flares and veiling glares for deep, rich blacks.Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass reduces chromatic aberrations.
These lenses provide the perfect combination of image and build quality at an affordable price, which meet the requirements of today’s operators within an industry where high-end equipment is now attainable at reasonable rates.
The 14-24, 24-70 and 80-200mm T2.8 Titan zoom range will be the last set you will ever need to buy.

The Close Focus Adaptors (CF1, 2 & 3) allows the extension of the flange distance between the lenses and camera, which creates a very short depth of field and magnified image much like a Macro lens.
When CF1 is used with the TLS CSP 100mm lens the adapter achieves a 1:1 macro ratio.
CF1 - CL-001
CF2 - CL-002
CF3 - CL-003
Gives smooth and accurate movement of the iris ring. Damping grease to give a movie lens feel.
Follow focus gear
Manufactured from solid black acetal, bored to suit focus barrel diameter and shrink fit to provide a seamless 0.8 MOD gear that will not damage the lens.
Standard front diameters
80mm or 95mm front diameter adaptor rings available made from aluminium alloy anodised and dyed black.
M77 or M90 internal filter thread.
Canon EF mount conversion
Mounts fitted and collimated to allow lenses to be used on Canon cameras.
Front 80mm and 95mm caps.
Rear mount cap.
TLS will convert your Canon K35 lenses from the traditional BNCR mount to a modern PL mount designed and manufactured by TLS from 304 grade stainless steel.
A variety of PL mounts are available to suit these lenses, depending on which focal length and style of lens is to be modified.
Please note that it is sometimes not possible to convert some 14mm and 135mm K35 lenses due to internal workings clashing with the PL mount.
This allows PL Mount Lenses to be placed directly on to Canon EF port cameras. Limited spigot depth due to electrical contact pins within the Canon port and mirror travel on DSLR cameras. Maximum spigot depth of 7.0mm on the PL mount. Complete with stainless steel lock ring with aluminium fittings and plates. Canon mount.
