Anamorphic Lens Tests

This is the second test recorded with a vintage anamorphic lens Rectimascop 48/2x and a russian lens Helios 44mm-2. Landscapes with this set up are really amazing and very, very soft. Rectimascop 48/2x is a projector lens. It was made in old DDR by Rathenower Optische Werke ( If you want to get a cinematic look, this is the cheapest way to get it without spend thousands of € renting an

This lens was used to shoot Solaris!!! Well - the front anamorphic bit was anyway. I have adapted it to work with a Canon FD 35mm F2 SSC on the Panasonic GH1. Very silly, quick test - using iPhone 4's flash light to generate flare. Read more at Want to make a similar video? The video was shot using an anamorphic lens, find out how to with the EOSHD Anamorphic Shooter's Guide

actually it was not an anamorphic lens it was an imitation of it. made a psd document in photoshop covering with black two sides of a video file.

Линзу разобрал,поделил на 2 части. Если все настроить ювелирно,будет резка на открытой дырке. Снимать сложно, только постановки без экшена, если только дыру не прикрывать. Фокус настраивается на самом объективе и при этом по трубкам рига нужно сдвигать переднюю часть насадки. Но для тех кто в "курсе" что такое анаморфот и нет средств для всяких "объективов" , не насадок, естественно найдут применение этому девайсу.

I was studying about anamorphics lens and how to emulate them the cheapest way, i will show the method later but i will need some opinion from guys who worked with anamorphic before, what do you think? Camera: Sony A6000 with Metabones Speed Booster adapter Lens: 50mm F1.4 with some DIY stuff to make it look anamorphic

Custom Lomo anamorphic 50mm lens made to work specifically with Canon DSLR.

This is first shoot done with Elmo Scope anamorphic lens put in front of Canon + Takumar 105mm lens once I had all the gear ready to use. It's actually larget bit of a job done for Inter Cars S. A. that I decided to test the Elmo. There should be a different music, however for YouTube purpose I decided to change it not to get in trouble with right-chasers.

Please have also a look on The Silence - a real shoot with the Elmo in front of Jupiter 85mm.

Shot with 'Mysteron' hacked GH2, Sankor 16C 2x anamorphic lens attached to a Nikkor AF 50/1.8D. The original ProRes file looks fantastic in 4K x 1K. This was shot and rendered as 3.55:1 widescreen in FCPX. A gentle color correction was added to each clip individually. It was dull weather so I was able to shoot without ND-filters. A Vid-Atlantic filter holder is on its way. I used +1 and +10 diopters for some of the tighter shots. This is my first encounter with an anamorphic lens, loving it already to bits

Test of the Cooke Anamorphic / i lenses. Shot at Keslow Camera with an Alexa XT Plus (4:3 sensor). Camera was set to 1600 ISO with a 180º shutter and 4300K WB throughout. Each lens was shot wide open and at a T2.3 as well as at a T2.8 & T4.0. The Arri Log ProRes 422HQ files were taken into DaVinci Resolve where a Rec709 LUT was applied.

This is a short film test with Vantage Film's Hawk anamorphics that I shot before shooting the short film "Poste Rest" ( First I had an idea to shoot with Aaton LTR S16 without anamorphic viewfinder but as one can see, the image is distorted because of the alignment of lens mount. Then I swapped to Arri 416 with Vantage's anamorphic viewfinder and everything worked as it should. In the end of the test video there is some raw material from the short film. I have also a cli

CANON 5DMKii + EIKI 16F + ED LEE CLAMP + SUPER TAKUMAR 105mm/2.8 I also shot using the cine-style technicolor picture setting edited and colored with FCP7.. The big difference between the SINGER and EIKI is that the EIKI is a smaller lens, lighter, and has a shorter minimum focus distance so you can get closer to your subject.

I was lucky enough to get to borrow a prototype for the new RH-1 Lens. I went out and did some tests around the city. Here's a quick one!

Testing out the foton in daylight conditions. Footage of the rig is at the very end of the video. Apologies for the low res file. Lens has a very soft look but the compression takes away some of the sharpness, footage was edited at 1280x540 and took a big resolution-hit. Footage is straight out of camera, no correction except for de-squeeze. Mostly shot from f3.5 to 5.6. White balance gets switched to daylight in the beginning.

This is a lens test featuring beautiful and talented actress Melissa Clements. Before the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour film challenge 2014 I wanted to see how the Kowa Anamorphic lens would operate so we performed this test with a 550D with its stock 50mm lens and the Kowa. I wanted to stay as low-profile as possible so I didn't use a rig, diopters (would need a matt box for diopters) nor a monitor. I wanted to shoot sci-fi styled short with no effects. Once we found the puple/white box at Canary Wharf (London)

One day in Rome,un giorno di pioggia a Roma,un test di riprese con Canon 5d Mark III+ lente anamorfica Sankor 16d su Super Takumar 105 2.8.
Direi buon test,bello il look e il fascino dell'anamorfico.
Non ho effettuato nessuna color grading proprio per vedere i limiti della lente a determinate luminosità.
I diaframmi quasi sempre intermedi tranne in qualche caso aperti o chiusi appositamente per vedere la presenza dell' eventuale vignettatura anamorfica.
Importantissimo assicurarsi del corretto allineamento

I shot this footage mainly to figure out what lenses with what settings I can/should shoot with the anamorphic lens, and also to see how the c-mount lenses could be used. There are shakey spots when some kids rode their big wheels on the walkway I was shooting on.

Our man Jake Dyke whipped up this little iPhone edit from the footage he shot at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out the new Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor. Richie Sakai was kind enough sing a few bars for the intro, and of course we had to throw in a star wipe for good measure because, "why eat hamburger when you can have steak?"
