Hi guys i bought Isco gottingen norleco anamorphic - kiptar 2x for 25 dollars ebay this is big ass lens i have some questions if you can please answer i am using canon 60d and i have no idea what to do here What lens can i use with this anamorphic? i seen one video that they are using canon 50mm fd lens but i have canon 50mm 1.8 cheap lens and 55-250 that come with 60d. I know that there is no clamp for this lens does the taking lens has to sit right against anamorphic. And on the lens there are bunch of numbers from 17 to 300 and inf what are they for when i turn the knob on the lensi don't see anything happening.

The numbers are focus distances because 'inf' stands for 'infinity'. The camera and anamorphic lenses have to be set to the same distance. If the units are feet, then you may have a projector lens. A camera lens wouldn't have all those numbers marked.

Unfortunately that means you can't focus closer than 17' without close-up lenses so it's not really suitable for photography.

If you hold it up to the fron element of your camera lens you'll find out how much vignetting there is. It will need a substantial clamp.

You might feel that at $25 you haven't lost too much.

most definitely a projection lens, for 35mm projectors... quite an old one... don't expect too much image quality...

sorry...
