JDC, a rental house in Wilmington, NC & London has a set of 16mm anamorphic lenses: www.joedunton.com

give them a call, mention my name: Matthew Skala (they may not remember me but I am trying to get my name out there, just tell them I referred you.)

Look for Kowa 16H/8Z on eBay. You'll have to make your own mounting bracket.

I know someone who used one on a Nikkor on an Eyemo stunt camera in a Jackie Chan rodeo movie. The results were quite good.

You'll have to focus both the backing lens and the attachment.

this http://www.lonesomecowboys.be/ was done with a Kowa 16-H on Eclair NPR, it was for video only, check under videos

in wideangle you'll get some barreldistortion, 20mm (like 10mm in non-anamorphic) is the widest you can go without vignetting. The Kowa 16-H eats 1/3 stops, in 16mm 2x anamorphic is 2.66 wide, in 35mm you have to crop to 2.35

Kowa 16-H is the same as Kowa 8-Z

---It would be the normal C'Scope aspect ratio, 2.35/1, 2.4/1.

Use the sides of the TV safe area for framing.

---it can be blown up to any size.
2.2x is the usual for regular16 to academy. In this case it would be 2.5X for regular 16 to full frame.
With the 2.2x the AR would be 2.66/1.
