Love the options that the arri system gives and i could be wrong, but i believe that arri swing tilt only works with a small selection of lenses. is there a similar system for use with anamorphics?

thanks,

Vantage have a Swing & Shift system with 3 lenses:

100mm T5.6
160mm T4
220mm T3.5

Otherwise I've never heard of one. The best bet is to ask if they can add an anamorphic element at the back, like with the zoom and telephoto lenses.

cheers max,

i saw the hawk anamorphic adaptor on their website and apart from the doubling and light loss do you know which focal lengths can/ cannot be used with it. if it worked then this would be a pretty good option.

thanks

I don't know if you can actually use it. We had these Arri lenses on 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' and they came with a whole bellows system. The lenses themselves were quite small and didn't have a PL mount, you just attached them to the bellows, so I don't know where you'd actually attach the anamorphic element.

Panavision adapted at 45mm tilt-focus lens to anamorphic with a rear adaptor, making it a 90mm. Probably the same could be done to some PL-mount swing-tilt lenses (not bellows lenses) for non-Panavision cameras.

I am sure I did a jonb recently on the clarmont shifties and the lens reciever was PL mount... I remember thing.. cool what other lenses could I stick on there.

Like you say the lenses we had were very light and the backs were very flat. I think thats a big issue with shifties because it needs to project a big old image.

Also I would not want to stick heavy anamorphics on that system. Remember also its designed for spherical lenses so any turn or play in the system could really mess up your image (you might like it though)
