  1. i agree, anamorphics are stupid and useless and flares and crops are all they do.   :ph34r:   now if only everyone here would agree we could pop the bubble  and might all be able to get a couple of iscoramas and a handful of mollers each :D   :P
  2.   its not that, i have a 1.5 which isnt far from 1.33 and the difference is clear to see. and i dont think its the taking lens either,... i put a regular kowa on a friends canon 5d 135L f2 superdupermodernsomething something a few weeks ago and the difference was far from subtle.
  3.   but i just got a lovely rubber gimp suit to go with me gasmask!  :(   it would have squeeked so nicely when rubbed against me  :wub:
  4. is it just me or is there something very unanamorphic about that anamorphic video?   looks like they just cropped a regular spherical.   at any rate, looks like it'd be fun to play with :)
  5. ^^^flashlight. the great thing about it is that you can do it anywhere, the camera doesnt have to be level on a tripod in a controlled environment,... as long as you can get the flare horizontal, then you're good.    when out and about i'll put the flashlight between my feet and and align that way,... yes i look very very stupid doing that :D
  6. sorry for my late reply, been a bit busy.   i cant believe i havent uploaded any footage with the shiga on the zeiss,... it's mostly zeiss and a couple of lenses i was ebaying on my youtube page. (shuji Moriwaki if you're interested)   i do have stills on my flickr with that combination http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=shigascope%20zeiss&ss=2&s=int     here's the setup http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/80-shigascope-x15/   the rear clamp screws into the taking lens, then the 3 screws hold the anamorphic in place,.. pretty much how all of redstans clamps work. i did worry about how solid the hold would be at first, but let me tell you it is damn solid provided you tighten them properly. that shit doesnt come loose in the 9 months or so that i've used it.   even on heavier lenses liek the big ass kowas the fit is solid. i think i could swing it round over and over and it wont come flying out :)   @dahlfors thanks for the tip man! that was like week 3 of me playing with video so i guess my natural assumption was "ah, 60 is double 30 so must be better :)" didnt even know what the i and p meant back then :P
  7. no worries, and those videos were handheld i believe.    currently this is my set up, shigascope in a zeiss lens :)   http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/image/619-shigascope-redstan-clamps-a/   redstan clamps, get in touch with him, he should have something for you a bit better than gaffer tape :P 
  8. i've got a Cinevision 8mm coming in soon. its bigger than the petit-cinevision, so doesnt say "petit" and if it's half as nice as that video i'll be quite happy :)
  9. Paulio is right,... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeverything Paulio just wrote is already in the forum.    it is very rare that anyone will have a specific circumstance soooooooooooooooooo outside of what has already been covered that the answer isnt already in the forum.   i'm a cheap bastard, i didnt buy the quide, but i did spend weeks going through the forum and the answers were pretty much there,... and most of the anamorphics i have are rare and unknown.    to your original question though,.. is it really worth buying one? rich said it all, and i think that if you have to ask then it probably isnt worth it to you right now. they might get more expensive later, or later there might be some super duper new technology that blows anamorphics away, who knows.    some prices are silly,.. if i didnt get mine dirt cheap i honestly might not bother, but then i wouldnt know what i was missing :)
  10. phew so i'm not the only one :P   wouldnt stretching it possibly make it softer vs squeezing or is it the same thing at the end of the day?
  11. wait, do you guys stretch it out to the sides?   i've been squeezing it down all this time  :mellow:   how embarrassing   :ph34r:
  12. i got mine in japan as i am in japan, but mine came with 1.1 installed so i just dropped in the bin and it worked.    he might not have 1.1 installed.

    ELMOSCOPE 16mm

    one of the older longer barrel ones? i have one and it is very nice, but because of the longer barrel you're pretty much limited to 50mm and above on an M43 sensor. i personally love mine, tack sharp with a zeiss behind it. also have a regular elmoscope with no "16" on the barrel that looks identical,... also very very nice. they're both lovely, just dont expect to get very wide with them. btw, you're not the Martin i know in Bangkok are you?
