Repairing Kodak Anastigmat and Kodak Ektar Cine Lenses

10 January 2019 - 12:06 AM

Hi,
 
I have been looking everywhere and have found absolutely NOTHING on how to tear and and repair/lubricate old C and S mount cine lenses by Kodak and Schneider. These lenses aren't worth the cost of sending out, but are too expensive to toss. I'd love to learn how to work on them. If anyone has videos, manuals, advice or links to help, I'd be VERY grateful.

Curious Kinoptik Lens Question

15 November 2018 - 04:38 AM

I just purchased a large lot of cine lenses. Most are pretty straightforward - either old PL or C mounts; but there are a couple of head scratchers. I have a Kinoptic Anamorphic F:2 Focale 75mm lens. The odd thing is that is doesn't have a focusing mechanism. Below the aperture ring is a screw on 1.5" (approximately) barrel followed by another short ring (see attached photos. The threaded section measures slightly under 35mm.

 

Does anyone know what's up with this lens? Is it some sort of universal mount that screws into the focusing helical of one's choice?

 

Thanks!

 

John
