  1. Have you ever heard of "diffraction" ? It means that you loose sharpness if you close your aperture too much.
  2. Hello, I am selling my 1.5x anamorphic Iscorama 1100 MC, it is a projection lens for a Kodak slide device. Its adapter and its 80mm prime is also provided (removable), as well as the original box. No need for a rear clamp, I provide a ring that adapts the back of the anamorphic in 52mm filter size. Its alignment system is very simple and very practical, much more than on other systems. It has no front thread, you will need to invest in a front clamp (Redstan for example) if you want to put a filter on it. It is in a very good cosmetic condition, the front lens is ok, the rear lens has slight discolorations I don't know exactly what it is, but there are no influences on the photos or videos. It fits on primary lenses, from 50mm on full frame (slight vignetting on 50mm-58mm), I tested it on a 58mm Helios-44, an 85mm Takumar and a 135mm Pentax-M, and is very sharp from full aperture, like all the results on the Iscorama family. On the 58mm its minimum focus distance is 5 meters (below with diopters) and its maximum is around 30 meters. You can have an exploitable infinity by closing at F8. At higher focal lengths the maximum focusing distance decreases. Focusing is done only through the "taking lens" (prime lens). This is a great opportunity to have an Iscorama that will give you breathtaking cinemascope results, whether in photos or video. Its price is much more advantageous than its brother the Iscorama 36 for similar results.

  3. SECOND PART outside shots : THREE FOCALS (SLR Magic Cine lenses with anamorphic), a Seb Farges movie This is a movie shot with three different focals from SLR Magic This second part is outsides shots, the 1st part was interiors shots ( https://vimeo.com/541548262 ) The 2.25 first minutes is shot with the anamorphot, the rest is a mix of the three lenses. Anamorphot-65 1.33x anamorphic adapter on the 50mm Microprime Cine lens 50mm t1.2 Microprime Cine lens 18mm T2.8 Shot between T1.3 to T4 Everything looks sharp, the anamorphic adapter too. The Cine lenses are a real pleasure to use, they are strong and solids. Double focusing with the Anamorphot is helped because of the calibration of the lens : for example when you are at 2 feet on the taking lens, you set the Anamorphot at 2 feet. The Anamorphot is vignetting a little with the 50mm, so some of the clips are cropped at 110%. It’s weight is quite light (780Gr) and it has the new high resolution coating.

  5. It's incredible cosimo ! And I'm surprised it's working on FF with a 58mm taking lens. . I don't know what others Super 8 anamorphic lens can do so, none I supposed. What is your "invisible" clamp ?
  6. Hello I'm searching an SLR Magic Rangefinder for a hack project. If you have a broken (glass) one, or a rear/far, I'm looking for the body only, I don't need the glass, for a small price. Thanks
  7. I'm a lucky owner of an Iscorama Pre-36 since May 2020. I had a few opportunity to film some clips this summer, here they are. After having the experience with Bolex Moller 16/32, babies Hypergonar and Isco, SLR Magics, I think this Iscorama Pre 36 is a total gem. It's small and light, sharp and single focus. It's only default is its 2 meters minimum distance focusing. I'm so in love with it You will see different taking lenses (mentioned during the movie) here such as : Helios 44-2 58mm f2 Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8 Pentax-M 40mm f2.8 Pentax-DA 70mm f2.4 Pentax-M 135mm f3.5 Everything was most of the time shot wide open. I'm surprised how the Iscorama performed well with tele lens such as the 135mm from Pentax. The Pentax-DA, which is an APS-C lens, is working on FF, even with the Iscorama. It's maybe one of the smallest and lightest 70mm ever made (131 grams for 26mm long). The pancake Pentax-M 40mm f2.8 gave slight vignetting. The Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8 is working very well. And of course the Helios 44-2 58mm f2 is pairing very well with the Iscorama, for who who like vintage and organic look. It's design is also great, it's deep front is perfect for the Iscorama protubing back (with the add of one 49mm spacer made from a filter). Shot on Sony A7RII 4K 24p, full frame mode. Diopters : Tamron 0.5x and Pentax 6X7 close-up achromatic (1X ?) Fotodiox Pro Vizelex variable ND Throttle EF mount Musics : Andrea Laszlo De Simone "Immensita" and "Mistero" Thanks to Hayley, Olive & Delphine, Izy & Elliot, Liliane, Florent and their family, Lucas Gautier and the Havana Moons, Tchi-Kung, the seller of the Iscorama and the people of bordeaux.
  8. @heart0less Thanks I've paid 67€ for the Volna, the seller didn't know exactly what it was, me neither lol, but I supposed thru the pictures it was a tilt lens. Yes I've used so much my LX100 with baby Hypergonar and SLR Magic 1.33x compact, but now he is quite dead. I'll try to find another one cheap. It seems working too with the Iscorama, I will do some test. Here is a fast one at full aperture (full tele zoom), seems only sharp in the middle, and little vignetting

  10. I've used a 2X extender vintage komura telemore95 II with my Iscorama Pre-36 1.5x and Pentax-DA 70mm in my last post (just before yours) , from 01:29 to 01:49 and 03:22 to 03:36
  11. I have just updated my movie "Covid-19 in anamorphic Before and Now" with the end of the lockdown. I'm lucky in a cinematography way because La rue Sainte-Catherine in Bordeaux is a street where wearing a mask is obligatory, so it's very filmic ! AND I am since two weeks an happy owner of an Iscorama Pre-36. All the shots with crowd + mask are shot with it. You will NOTICE too few shots done with a TILT medium lens (Volna-3 80mm 2.8) used as a prime with the Iscorama. Filmed in anamorphics "baby iscorama" Iscomorphot 8/1.5x isco-gottingen iscorama pre-36 1.5x Aivascope pro 1.5x "baby" hypergonar 1.75x + slr magic rangefinder bolex moller anamorphot 16/32 1.5x before : from 2012 to 2020 now : june the 5th, 2020 during the time of covid-19 La rue Sainte-Catherine is the longuest pedestrian street in europe, 1km250. It's located in Bordeaux, south west of France. Each day thousands of bordelais and tourists from all over the world walk in this street. Since the 17th march 2020, lockdown has been in place in france. This street has never been so empty. This is a run and gun, street video style, a hommage to the bordelais. It's a mix of archives, filmed in anamorphic, from 2012 to nowadays, this covid-19 time. One day all the crowds will come back to la rue Sainte-Catherine, Bordeaux, France. Let's enjoy life and people through these contemplative moments.
  12. @aramv I liked the GH4 very much, and also the compact camera LX100. Baby Hypergonar 1.75x, Iscorama 36 non mc, Baby Isco Gottingen Anamorphot 1.5x, Bolex Moler Anamorphot 16/32 1.5x and Aivascope Pro 1.5x are very good anamorphic, when paired with the right lens Primes such as LINOS Me-Vis C-mount 35mm f1.6 and Pentax-m 40mm f2.8 are my favorites
  13. Aivascope 1.5x meets Medium Format Tilt lens (Volna-3 80mm f2.8 tilt version) -Quick and improvised music video, shot just before the french covid lockdown-
  14. Thanks @Michi ! Time laps is a good idea, but I'm scared to have a 135€ fine ! We are not allowed to stay in a place too long, and the Sainte-Catherine area is filming by CCTV

  17. @au8ust I didn't tried the Rapido, but the Aivascope is quite smooth, maybe closed to the SLR Magic Rangefinder I know. @heart0less Yes when the sun is coming, everything is better
