Hello All,

 

I am looking into using P+S Technik anamorphic zooms on my next documentary project.  The specific models are:

 

PS-Zoom 35-70 CS, T3.2 (1.5x Anamorphic)

PS-Zoom 70-200 CS, T3.5 (1.5x Anamorphic)

 

I plan to pair these lenses with an Arri Amira with the latest software update (SUP 5.2) which allows the Amira EVF/Monitor to view a 1.3x desqueeze, however it does not support a 1.5x desqueeze.

 

While I would love to have an external monitor on me at all times, I will be shooting a documentary where it may not always be the case that I can use an external monitor which supports 1.5x desqueeze.  

 

I would love to hear from anyone who has used anamorphics well enough to understand what I should expect in terms of difficulty or challenges to framing, composition and focus peaking on the Arri Amira EVF/Monitor in this case.

 

The alternative would be to shoot on a combo of Angenieux EZ-1/EZ-2 spherical lenses paired with the TLS 80-200 PL zoom.  This would certainly make shooting a bit easier, but I will lose the anamorphic look.  

 

The project is a proof of concept, with meetings in place to present to two of the major OTT streaming services for distribution.  If that helps you ascertain viable delivery formats, also would love your thoughts.  We plan to go for a 2.35:1 final aspect ratio, and these lenses should allow us a bit of composition/crop room in post.

 

Thank you!
