As mentioned in an earlier list, I am about to shoot my final diploma film. We are in a process of finalizing the visual form of the film and using anamorphic lenses is one of the ideas.
We have Kowa Prominar lenses available at the institute which got serviced yesterday. With few students along I took few shots just to see how they are performing post servicing.
Although I intend to shoot my diploma film on 35mm Film, these few shots were taken on an Arri Alexa XT. Prores HQ. Rec 709. In available light. ND filters were used in exterior shots.
It is not a test but I would like to have a feedback on it from the members, not only with respect to technical elements like distortion and flaring but also using these lenses and format as an aesthetic choice.
Would be sharing detailed test on film as well as digital soon.
