Big up!

I'm shooting in 16mm with my bolex for a while now but I just discover anamorphot lensand it really looks beautiful...

So right now I can't live more without testing anamorphot sensations!

Do you know where I can provide any Anamorphot setup for my camera? If anyone reading this topic sell some feel free to get in touch... :)

Is the projection lens solution a really good solution? I guess it's cheaper but what about the quality?

Thanks for helping.

Q.

Just going to jump into this thread rather than start another. Looking to buy an anamorphic lens but the moellers seem to be hard to come by.

 

Right now for sale here - http://www.ebay.co.u...orphic&_sacat=0

 

There's a Bell and Howell lens, a scope lens adaptor, a very expensive panavision one (probs not that to start), and a fumeo lens.

 

Which would you guys recommend. Could I just go ahead with the scope lens adaptor - http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2ec7265400

 

 

Edit: or, just noticed this Kowa 8Z lens, would that be fine to get started with http://www.ebay.co.u...=item20d0ab02e5

ive used a bunch of projection adapters. the issues are:

 

you have to focus both lenses. but once you learn to do this fast and tack sharp you will be a cheetah with your sphericals.

 

what is the min focal dist of the adapter? some as low as 8ft. some only 18ft

 

will you need to add diopter to drop min fd? see above

 

what is the min useable focal length of the camera lens in conjunction with the adapter without vignetting? depends on the size and design of the adapter. often 40-50mm for avg 16mm gate. little secret... get a doubler. seems to drop the min fl well below half. so if you are 50mm stnd spher thru the anamorphic and you add a doubler i have experienced a drop all the way down to 15mm. not the expected 25mm. (and note this is my direct experience canon and fujinons with built in 2x's but dont yell at me if you spend $400 on a mutar and this doesnt work . this stuff is trial and error) also see next issue

 

chromatic aberrations form capturing thru all the extra glass? likely. but some add to the look i believe. some are ugly.

 

i love what ive trained my eyes to see from all the experimenting. if youre looking to spend some quality time with your gear you can def do it in this catagory! its really a matter of what your taste and tolerance can handle. otherwise it becomes clear why even old internally matched anamorphic taking lenses cost a small deficit.

The Kowa 8Z is intended for both photography and projection. It has a fairly large rear element, 49mm., so will work at shorter focal lengths than some smaller lenses.

I have one. PM me if interested.

The purchaser of this Moeller Anamorphot made ​​a very good buy, it seems.
