5.6mm Lens and 16mm Film
Posted 15 October 2007 - 03:14 PM
I have an opportunity to use a friend's Arriflex-M this weekend with a 5.6mm (I assume fisheye) lens. My knowledge of lenses is limited to my experience with them on my Nikon D50 but I know focal lengths have differing fields of view depending on the size of the film or sensor they focus an image on. Does anyone know what a 5.6mm lens will look like on 16mm film?
If anyone can point me in a helpful direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Are you sure the lens is 5.6mm? Angenieux use to make a 5.9mm for 16mm cameras.
It's not a fisheye.
