Hey everyone,

 

So I've been talking to a guy who had his Zeiss Contax Lenses modified so that he could get a 2x Oval Iris look (similar to anamorphic). He got them modified from Richard Gale Optics in the UK. His video can be viewed here:

I want to do a similar thing to my Zeiss Contax Lens set yet the guy at Richard Gale Optics is too busy to do so. Does anyone know anywhere (Preferably in Sydney, Australia) who would do a similar thing. I've never really seen anything look so good that isn't true anamorphic shooting. He pretty much just fits oval apertures in? https://www.flickr.com/photos/melting_bloke/14185201175/in/photolist-nBuS74 

 

Thanks in advance for any information,

 

Robbie.

Hi Robbie,

I can do that kind of modification. I'm in Melbourne, but deal with interstate clients all the time.

Feel free to PM me or contact me directly on the email below.

I'm really interested in this too - is there anyone else out there (preferably UK based) who can do this modification for Zeiss Contax. I've got a set 25/35/50/85/100 I'd love to have worked over!
