Irix and gimbals work great together

All Irix has a similar weight, which makes swapping them on gimbal much easier. Additionally, focus gears help with any wireless follow focus. The weight of around 1kg works as a perfect counterweight to most mirrorless cameras, making balancing a breeze. We have tested it personally on many gimbals from most popular brands like Zhiyun or DJI and were very happy with how it all performed together.

*Each camera has different weight distribution and size, some balance easier, others don’t. Tests were done on the Sony A7 series and Canon R series.

Perfectly fits into the cine world

Your comfort matters. To ease the use as much as possible, we made sure our Irix Cine 45mm is compatible with most follow focus systems, matte boxes, stabilizers and accessories available on the market.

Furthermore, it comes with a detachable lens support foot – to provide stabilization and reduce the strain of the camera mount when in use with follow focus gears.

Irix Cine is so universal it will become your favourite lens no matter the task!

Great lens for landscapes. Highly recommended

Steven L

I purchased the 45mm along with the 15mm and the 150mm. I completely enjoy the lenses and I did a comparison to the Canon CNE glass and they match up quite well. The only complaint is the Lens cap, the caps do not stay on any of the lenses and the contorted surface basically forced my to go with another brands (Sigma LCF86 III) lens cap that lock on quite well and have a flat surface. I understand Irix is trying to bring a unique design to the customers but my recommendation is stick with the pinch clamp lens caps the tested and true design.

I’ve shot a few test shots and the 45 looks very sharp and smooth with no noticeable CA. Focus throw is 180 and the overall feel is solid! – Can’t wait for Irix to come out with a couple of more primes.

"Today i'm doing something a little different and talking about a lens that I've been using for the past few months - Buying into any cine brand is a scary thing as they're expensive, require alot more work and of course they have a completely different look, IRIX as a brand is one to look out for They’re doing HUGE things and of course they make great lenses"

Hungarian review of Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 and 45mm T1.5 lenses



"Definitely one of my favorite lenses out of the 4. Perfect focal length for docu-style/ narrative work. Almost zero focus breathing and beautiful bokeh wide open. Sharp and built like a tank"


Dawid Skoczylas

Polish review and test of Irix Cine lenses






Irix Cine Lenses are a good choice for novice to professional filmmakers and they retail for a fraction of the cost of higher-end lenses.


Digixo Blog

"Irix propose une belle optique ciné, assez légère pour cette catégorie Full Frame. On peut envisager de l’embarquer sur un stabilisateur ou pour une utilisation à main levée. C’est un très bon compromis qualité/poids/look cinematic si l’on s’en tient à une ouverture inférieure ou égale à T2.8, le tout dans une gamme de prix abordable"


Film & TV Kamera

"Die Bildqualität kann überzeugen und sich durchaus auch in Kombination mit teureren Kameras sehen lassen. Auch an die Besitzer von 8K-Kameras hat der Hersteller gedacht, denn die Optiken schaffen auch die dafür nötige Auflösung. Durch die kompakte, durchdachte Bauweise, gute Funktionalität und Bildqualität bilden die Irix-Cine-Optiken einen verlässlichen Prime-Satz, den man für unterschiedlich geartete Produktionen dabeihaben kann"


Scott Balkum

"IRIX 45mm Cine Lens Review | BEST BUDGET Cine lens?!"


Scott Dumas

"With very impressive image quality, a solid weather proof build and an innovative cinema lens design that still feels at home on smaller cameras, the Irix 45mm T1.5 is one of the best low cost choices on the cinema lens market."


Duffy James

"Are the Irix Cine 150mm T3.0 and 45mm T1.5 lenses any good? | YES!"


DIY Photography

"The IRIX 45mm cine in an amazing deal for its price, with some nice features and a look that reminds me of the Zeiss CP.2 signature look we took it for a spin."



"It is well built with all-metal construction, has relatively low breathing, very minimal chromatic aberration, no visible barrel or pincushion distortion and the sharpness and contrast if you close down to around T/2.8 is very good."
