The Module 8 L3 Tuner is an innovative new lens that transforms your modern digital cameras into a nostalgic dream machine. It unlocks the cinematic magic of vintage films with a simple twist on lens adapter, available in three distinct looks. The L3 Tuner is Module 8’s co-founder Iain A. Neil signature look and is the culmination of decades of experience designing some of the most iconic cinematic lenses, especially anamorphic. L3 gives you the funky astigmatic characteristics of classic anamorphic lenses, even though you are using spherical optics. L3 will simulate the vertical / horizontal depth of field effects seen on vintage anamorphic glass (without the flares or bokeh). Most lens tunings focus on halation and glow, or simple filed curvature. The L3 creates a very complex effect that adds off-axis character.

 

The Tuner seamlessly integrates into your existing camera rig and allows adjustment of the look and character of your images in real time, during the shot. No more hunting down expensive lenses, paying exorbitant lens rehousing fees, or investing in the latest hyped up “detuned prime lenses”. The Module 8 Tuners work seamlessly with your existing glass to create the cinematic looks cherished by the top Cinematographers. The Tuners now come in two lens mounts, EF and PL. The EF Tuners are compatible with Sony E Mount and RF Mounts on Canon and RED cameras. The EF Tuners include build in electronics support for autofocus, aperture control and image stabilization of electronic lenses from Canon, Sigma and Tamron are supported. Due to the electronics, the EF version does not have the ability to change camera mounts. The PL mount Tuner supports a wide range of PL mount glass as long as the rear elements do not protrude too far from the mount. Since the PL Tuner does not have electronics, users can swap mounts to ANY mirrorless camera including Sony E, Canon RF, L Mount for Blackmagic, Panasonic and Leica, and Fujifilm X.

Created by 13x Academy Award Winner and legendary cinema lens designer Iain Neil, The Tuner allows you to tell your story in story adding a unique visual signature to your work, setting it apart from the crowd. Every Tuner frame will transport your audience to a different era, filled with the timeless beauty and captivating charm of film. They're all about experimenting with images, having fun, and being inspired.

The L3 Tuner Look

Module 8 has created three unique looks, emulating some of the most iconic cinema lenses ever made. The L3 Tuner is Module 8’s co-founder Iain A. Neil signature look and is the culmination of decades of experience designing some of the most iconic anamorphic lenses. L3 gives you the funky off axis astigmatic characteristics of classic anamorphic lenses, even though you are using spherical optics. L3 simulates the vertical / horizontal depth of field effects seen on vintage anamorphic glass. Most diffusion filters and lens detunings focusses on halation, glow, or simple filed curvature. The L3 creates a very complex effect that adds unique off-axis character. Cropping L3 spherical footage to 2.4:1 adds anamorphic character while using it with clean, modern anamophics transforms them into something much more organically cinematic
