The History of Duclos Lenses
Duclos lenses opened its doors in 2002 by the co-founders, Paul Duclos and Michelle Duclos. They saw a need for lens accessories and filled their store with products like carry handles, motor brackets, and caps for the Angenieux Optimo Series and other lenses. In 2007, they found a need to expand and moved to a new location in the West of the San Fernando Valley. They were able to fill the space with more products, more technicians and more equipment. However that space didnt last long , as they found a need to expand once again in 2012. Currently, their lens lab is located in Chatsworth California and they will continue to provide unrivaled, professional motion picture lens service for the worlds cinematographers.
Duclos Lenses and Sigma
When Sigma made the decision to enter the cinema market with their new line of lenses, Duclos Lenses provided their industry expertise and technical consultation. They were honored to have been part of such a successful product launch and look forward to collaborating with Sigma in the future. On October 6th 2016, Duclos Lenses hosted Sigma at The ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, California to celebrate the launch of their new line of cinema primes and zooms. The event allowed the industry’s most prominent cinematographers a chance to try Sigma’s new cine lens for the first time.
In addition to being an official dealer of Sigma Cine Lenses, Duclos Lenses is an authorized Sigma Service facility. Their staff of expert technicians receives factory training to perform efficient, accurate repairs and maintenance. This allows Duclos Lenses to quality check every single lens that goes into our sales inventory. As a result, only the best of the best make it into the hands of their customers.
