  1. lmao!    buyers can rest assured that my penis has not touched, caressed or been near the anamorphic in any way.  :ph34r:
  2. thanks tferradans!    i asked our resident expert how it compares to a B&H and he said this:     much smaller run than kowa  bell howell better quality control. it is an 8z that would go through additional tests by elmo. elmo made the best ever cine projector so they made sure all the optics where the best they could be. lovely single coat  Magnesium Fluoride should be super sharp.   i've tried a 35mm in a clamp and there is a slight vignette, but,.....the clamp may not be ideal as it doesnt get the rear lens close enough,..   right up against the lens, handheld there is no vignette so 35mm is the widest. dont have a 28mm to try unfortunately.   i would imagine redstan might have more suitable clamp which i might need to pick up for my other elmoscope II :)
  3. My Elmoscope II x2:   http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300905958653
  4. Just put my Elmoscope II up for auction:     http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300905958653   The Elmoscope II is a rebranded Kowa 8z /16H.   Here is a sample video I shot with this lens of me bleaching polaroids,... thought it'd be more interesting than random trees an' shit,... not that there's anything wrong with random trees an' shit,....   This is straight out of the camera,  filmed with the Elmoscope II on a Contax Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.4 set between f2.8 - 5.6, on a Lumix GH2 with the Valkyrie TZ3 Beta2 patch. 100% manual of course. No color correction/ adjustments / leveling / grading / fx other than unsqueezing in post.   http://youtu.be/K8PWJ5XSCVE   more details in the listing, but if you guys have any questions fire away :)   cheers.  
  5. found this Elmoscope II:   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Elmo-Elmoscope-II-Anamorphic-Anamorphot-/281097975551?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4172beb6ff
  6. i have owned the ones i listed. still have the elmoscope 16 as i'm really liking the x2 for still photography, yet its not as bulky as the larger 8z. and the shigascope sure as hell aint goin nowhere anytime soon :P bidding on a couple more this week, but prices here have started to go up too,.. probably my fault :P
  7. and now to being useful instead of crackin' jokes: shigascope x1.5 Izukar-scope x1.5 Elmoscope 16 x2 ( i think, the one with the longer rear barrel similar to a sankor 16, cant be sure as i've never had a sankor) Kowa Prominar 8 x1.5
  8. i propose we kidnap tony wilson and hold him captive for as long as it takes to extract all relevant information. and the irrelevant info too,.. dude has some great stories :D
  9. some hacks will take up loads of space,... on 64gb, apocalypse now boom gives me under an hour at 24p. and in camera playback is a bit dodgy.   plus offloading takes forever.   but it looks great!   i'm liking the bkmcwd valkyrie patches at the moment, but the other ones, moon and slipstream i think theyre called are easier on the SD cards and pretty nice too.
  10. you can technically shoot everything with 1 lens  :P   stop shopping, start shooting,... that way you can figure out yourself what you're missing/needing.
  11. nicely done!   yeah CA is a bit much at times, but it has a very nice look! certainly the best of the lot of the recent attempts to make a modern one.   keep it, i'm looking forward to where this is going :D
  12. that's very nice of andrew!   doc gave me this:     matter of life or death he said  :ph34r:   :P
  13. hahaha, i shall have have him consult a physician at once  :lol:
  14. hehe, yeah the unsqueeze is a bit off isnt it  :P
  15. Polaroid 195 + fujifilm fp-3000b + Elmoscope II x2 anamorphic =   [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/shujimoriwaki/8670308147/][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/shujimoriwaki/8670308147/]20130422[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/shujimoriwaki/]Shuji Moriwaki[/url], on Flickr   now i just gotta figure out how to nail focus......   hehe, being silly on a monday morning.   cheers to tony wilson for entertaining my silly ideas.
  16. very nice grading indeed!    i like the first one,... but yes it does look like it was CG, haha!   the last one, more lifted,... love that one!
  17. re clamps: redstan is the man, quality metal work!   dont know the difference between the kowa's but hopefully someone who does will chime in.
  18. @septemberdawn cheers for the tip!   yeah, not intentional, and i was purely focused on getting them in focus so i had tape marking where they shouldnt cross, but hadnt thought of the jolts from side to side,... their heights didnt help either,.. five foot five to well over six foot,... i should have just turned the camera 45 degrees and would have had another landmark shot and the jolt wouldnt have been a problem.   its these little things isnt.   thanks for watching and taking the time to comment, it is much appreciated  :)
  19. just had a quick flick through this thread so i might have missed it,... but incase it hasnt been mentioned, there is this that might be of some use to you guys: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p9kkgjwEQQQ-HJwvNDobeEw
  20. thanks man!   wasnt expecting it to be fullscreen at all,... i love whoever was doing the projection that day  :P
  21. @rich101   from shooting more with the shigascope and the 50mm zeiss planar,...   from f16, opening the iris, the exposure increases as you'd expect all the way to f2.8.   from f2.8 to f2 the increase is smaller ie not as much as you'd expect from going from 2.8 to 2. and from 2 onwards there's no change,... so f2 and f1.4 look the same.   plus the tiny rear end means that at f2 and larger the double image starts coming in from the sides making it unusable anyway, unless you're shooting one bright thing ins a dark setting and it is dead center in your screen.
  22. http://youtu.be/nenH4wFkTL0   this is my entry for a competition at a local tv channel. the shigascope with a takumar taking lens on a Nikon V1.    my first complete bit of video since i started playing with video in september.   and i came in second  :D ! so it's now being aired once a week for the next year. ( i would have rathered the cash value as a prize but oh well)   a friend told me about the competition 2 weeks before the deadline, a bunch of us got together and shot it in an afternoon,... cut together without knowing what i was doing,.. still dont really know  :P   for those that dont speak japanese,... the competition is called Furusato which roughly translates to hometown and is intended for locals to promote their hometown.    since i'm not originally from here i decided to make it about the foreigners/non-locals who have chosen to make this city their home.   it got projected in a movie theatre for the awards ceremony,...   the brilliant thing is that everyone else shot regular aspect ratio stuff,... so their videos occupied the middle area of the screen,...    when mine came on,... it was like 'boom!' filing the screen, lighting up the room,.. was so cool.    actually no thats not the brilliant thing,.. the brilliant thing is that people thought i shot this on a massive camera. i bet they think i was being a dick and lieing to them when i said it was a nikon v1 :P   that is all for now  :)
