TheCineLens.com is an independent, unbiased source for news, tutorials, and updates involving all things “cinema lenses”. We strive to provide relevant, timely content to our readers. We don’t post as often as some other blogs, but we like to think that the quality and relevancy of our content more than makes up for this.
Our founder, Matthew Duclos, of Duclos Lenses began the site entirely separate from the Duclos Lenses business. Over time, the two have grown hand in hand and this site is now the primary outlet for Duclos Lenses updates. It can be considered the unofficial blog of Duclos Lenses, but remains entirely independent from Duclos Lenses, Inc.
As a private website, there are operating costs which are covered by our generous sponsors you’ll see on the side bar of site. As a sponsor, they’re not entitled to favorable reviews or biased testing. We make this very clear to them up-front. This relationship usually offers us early access to upcoming products for review, which gives us a chance to write about and promote upcoming products, but again, it does not entitle the sponsor to positive reviews.
We always do our best to maintain a truthful, transparent resource for cinematographers and lens geeks alike. If you’re a manufacturer that has been upset by a poor review, consider it a chance to work with us to develop better products moving forward. If you’re a reader that disagrees with something we wrote, that’s fine too. After all, this entire site is just the musings of a few passionate people. Enjoy!
