Cooke Optics

Founded in 1893, Cooke has been at the centre of the filmmaking business and is committed to driving constant innovation. For over a century, wherever films have been made, Cooke has been there.

With Scott and Shackleton at the South Pole,

At the top of Mount Everest and in the deepest ocean,

At Royal weddings and major ceremonial events,

On ornithological and scientific expeditions,

In the service of NATO on the ground, and at the edge of the atmosphere,

In the world’s television networks, and on location with many, many films.


Cooke lenses have stunningly documented the history of the 20th century, captured the natural wonders of our world and been integral to making films from the very beginning.
