Hi gents,

looking to shoot something good with BMPCC and anamorphic, I'd like to know which focal lens would be good using the  HYPERGONAR HI-FI 2.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Giorgio

Since the Pocket Camera has a 16mm sized sensor, you'll probably want a range of: 16, 25, 35, 50mm with a 2x anamorphic adapter. I'm guessing you should be able to find some Micro 4/3 lenses in that range. There are also some affordable photo zooms that come in those focal lengths.

The Hypergonar is a large heavy projection lens, not really suited for anamorphic shooting. I seem to remember the close focus was like 12-15 feet. I bought one years ago and couldn't make it work. You would be better off with the much smaller Kowa 16H or even better with an Iscorama 36. The Iscorama is very expensive however. I bought one a few years ago for about $2k, and now they are selling for double!

I'm looking also on other anamorphic lenses like the Schneider Cinelux and the Kowa Prominar, just curious to try but as I don't like to spend a lot of money to end with nothing I will look into this more careful.

I'm not sure if would be better to invest on a Kinoptik Tegea 5.7mm or 9.8mm lens maybe, but I'm really interested to try also the FM Module, single action focus on anamorphic attachment.

 

Uhmmm....

You could also use the SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33, which will make the S16 image into a more standard anamorphic 2.20 ratio. You're limited to a smaller lens diameter though, so it's worth exploring what would work with that. A lot of people are using it on the BMCC with the Sigma 18-35 1.8.
