I am interested in shooting 16mm spherical anamorphic via ground glass 2.35 markings such that the 2.35 aspect ratio is extracted in post.

I have located the following reference material for both Arriflex and Aaton respectively, i.e.
1. http://www.arrimedia.....ass Guide.pdf
2. http://www.aaton.com...g_screens16.pdf

It seems Aaton does offer a specific 2.35 markings, i.e. Ref#01-812-29 format=Super 16 markings=2.35 Full + 1.78 Full.

Are there any alternative sources for S16 or R16 2.35 marked ground glass for specific 16mm cameras?

You should drop a line to Bernie at Super16inc and he could either figure something out or point you in the right direction.

Thanks Alvin.

I was just about to contact Bernie at Super16.com. Aaton just informed me yesterday that the S16 2.35 ground glass is no longer in production.

Regards,

Arri may be able to supply you with a 2.35 groundglass if you are using one of their cameras. They will also temporarily mark a 1.85 groundglass with clear tape, if asked nicely.

Btw, what you are proposing to do has nothing to do with anamorphic. You are merely using the same aspect ratio.

Stuart.

My terminology stands corrected.

I wish to extract a 2.35 aspect ratio utilizing standard 16mm spherical optics...in the anamorphic style. :)

Thanks for the heads up regarding Arri. In fact I could very well have the standard 1.85 Aaton ground glass taped off accordingly.
