My advice is do some testing prior to using it.
Maybe you could post your results and thoughts!

Bad Idea to use a 5.5mm (s16mm) lens with a streak filter.

Unless that is what you want...

I have been looking to recreate anamorphic flares and those streak filters look pretty promising, although i have never heard of theme before. I am from UK. Is there any place i can buy them for dv cameras apart from the link that serge has posted? Or am i just not looking hard enough

The Vantage Blues deliver a true Anamorphic Flare so when you say you are looking for an 'Anamorphic' Flare... in Spherical lenses.. Video or Film... Vantage Blue is your only choice.

The link is for South London Filters http://www.camerafilters.co.uk/
You could also look in hire places such as Panavision, Take 2, Arri etc...
Most of them will do a large array of filters. But to date I have found that the unusual ones that aren't used often are normally available at SLF.
The guy you want to speak to there is Ceri.

Ok, i was wondering, do these streak filters just screw on to a normal camera thread? At the moment, i use a HV30 with 35mm adapter and was thinking, could i screw a streak filter directly onto my hv30 and my 35mm adapter onto the front threads of the filter?
Also i use FD lenses (due to the price), is there some sort of anamorphic lens (or something that produces similar flares, i'm not particularly after the aspect ratio, although its cool) that i could directly attacth to the fd mount? I'm assuming this is impossible. Again, thanks for your help on my rather newbie questions, cheers.

As Jaimie points out, Streaks are for Long Lens use... Unless you like that (naff) look.

Oh, so i can only buy this filter with a 138mm thread? Well thats fine, now i need me a step down ring
I didn't say anything about threads. They come in 4x4, 4x5, and Round.
