Just got my [running] 1014-E in and attached my anamorphic ISCO lens to the front (quite the beast) with a Vid-Atlantic clamp. Vignetting stops at about 25mm, which I'm pleased about. I have the camera lens and the anamorphic attached to each other via a 58mm rota pola which I popped the glass out of so I can quickly realign the lenses with each other after focusing. I'm going to attempt to build some kind of lens support with mini 15 rods, but I see that the camera lens breathes when focusing, which will inhibit me from securing the anamorphic lens in place, but I can't complain - it is what it is!
I've taken 1/2" white vinyl tape and marked along the top and bottom of the anamorphic lens to the best of my ability to indicate the positioning of the anamorphic element. I'm wondering what is the best method of ensuring accurate alignment after focusing on the fly? I'm going to be disappointed if my footage comes back distorted due to a minute alignment error on my part. I will be filming a wedding while vacationing in Europe this summer.
Needless to say, I'm excited about shooting anamorphic, despite the costs of using film in a digital age.
Aside from this, I also have the task of removing 30+ years of accumulated cigarette smoke. A thorough cleaning has taken a lot of it out, but it's still lingering. I've been told to leave it outside to air out, but I don't exactly like this idea seeing that it is a camera.
