LVX Badalamenti Cinema Optics, focuses on solving the creative and technical necessities of modern day cinematography. 

We provide you with a variety of tunable characteristics, such as flaring, character and acutance – border contrast control. 

With LVX you can modify your set to meet the needs of your style of shooting, taking it on a full vintage direction, or on a balanced mid point that is optimized for most shooting conditions. 

LVX is a mix of Italian design and Latin American manufacturing. Our lenses are rehoused in an elegant 7075 Aircraft aluminum – to provide you with the best looks and mechanics, without additional weight. 

We are proud of what we do, and what we deliver. But the most valuable resource we have is our team. These lenses are handcrafted with genuine passion, precision, dedication and love. 

LVX is the Latin word for light, the true instrument of our craft. We wholeheartedly wish that this tool let’s you shape it, reflect it and share it in more beautiful and evolved ways.
