  1. This seems like a fun film to make. It looks like a dream someone would have.
  2. Planning out mini movie

  3. [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20577/5004eddfcc492_checked.jpg[/img] Aparently its 2.222:1 when converting 16:9 content. I did exactly what Quick Hit Record suggeted. I took a photo of one of the lens thread adapters then started doing different squeezes and 100%x80%. If Im doing the math correctly this lens would make 720x480 4:3 to 720x384. which is either a 1.88 or 1.85:1. Lucky I checked when I got home from work. I still like this lens. I will however still need a diopter and there are no front threads. Since the lens arrived today I brought it to work to test out. I didnt record any footage- just took photos. I dont have a full frame camera. Just a T2i, photos have no vignetting at all! I will have to correct myself - I will have to find a diopter and find a way of mounting it to the anamorphic lens.

  4. [quote name='QuickHitRecord' timestamp='1342456705' post='13974'] Free advertising for Ray Valenti! Of course, I'll never be able to afford a house after buying all of these anamorphic lenses. There are a couple of generic/off-brand models out there. I have no idea of what this one is. But it's good to hear that you seem to have found a winner. To answer your question about aspect ratio, try this: Print a picture of a circle and tape it a wall. Square up your camera as much as possible and get a quick shot of the circle. Then take it into your editing software and stretch it out until it's a perfect circle again. Look at how much you had to stretch it and you'll know the ideal ratio of your lens. [/quote] So- I'll do this with a grid on the circle so I can see if I can rotate it 90 degrees and see if the gride matches. Good idea. No- my aparment building is for sale. I'm new to DSLR video - I'm starting out with a T2i. I dont even have magic lantern on my camera yet.
  5. [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20577/5004358d76523_235vs240.jpg[/img] Ok, I recently purchased a lens on ebay that says that its 1.3x, which means a 30 percent squeeze or 2.40??:1 / 1920x756 really not sure what aspect ratio it is. Which is on the Right of the image Im Sharing. On the left I only did a 25 percent squeeze or 2.35:1 / 1920x810 aspect ratio. Now the ebayer that sold me this lens told me it was 1.3x. But I'm really not sure. The lens looks like a Century Optics Lens.But its not as blurry some of the videos that I've seen on ebay. I'm using a T2i and Helios 44-2 lens with a 49mm to 52mm thread which FITS THE ANAMORPHIC LENS. The lens is beautiful- it's a little dusty- and it has an anamorphic rubber band around it. No brand is on the actual lens and underneith it it says Made In Japan. 2 Questions come to mind- What is what is the proper aspect resolution/squeeze based on the photo I've taken? What is the brand of this lens? Here is a photo of the actual lens. [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20577/50043c05b7c6e_anamorphiclens.jpg[/img]
