For 125 years, Cooke has been at the centre of the filmmaking business. We’ve been listening to the community of which we are a part. We lead by introducing new products such as /i Technology, and we remember our success is built on a simple idea - do what the filmmaker needs.
Our factory in Leicester, England has generations from the same family working side by side. That experience is unbeaten anywhere. We manufacture a full range of primes and zooms for 35mm and digital photography, as well as large format stills lenses.
We know our customers, and they know us, as individuals. Our rental partners do their training next to the craftsman who built their lenses. There are no barriers. We meet our customers at trade shows, on location around the world, and we welcome customers by appointment to our factory in the U.K. for an informal tour and discussion.
Our quality is monitored at every stage of manufacturing. Our Quality Control technicians carry out a 20 point check to ensure that the lenses leaving our factory are made to the highest quality possible. We’re intolerant when it comes to tolerances. We research continuously to drive innovation. Our lenses are dependable and practical in use on the set; our optics superb. The lenses are straightforward to maintain – which is why so many rental facilities carry our products. Our manufacturing and testers keep going until we get each lens within our very tight specification. We get it right, whatever it takes.
