Hi all,

I just need help understanding anamorphic s

How is it used when your shooting film, is it to squeeze more images onto the film and then unsqueeze later?

Also with digital is it used just to get 2:35.1 and anaphoric flares like in Super 8?

Also how does focal length appear is it double like a 20mm is actually a 40mm.

One last question I have read when they are stopped down they become soft.. is this true?

Thanks

All your questions are answered here.

Lenses get sharper stopped down this is true of anamorphic lenses as well.
