  1. Hi guys ! Yes I have just received the GH4 this morning :) 1st test : why not put my 60’s baby Hypergonar anamorphic 1.75X lens in the 4K cinema mode ? :) Fast filming, run and gun documentary style, focusing improvisation Doing 4K is for me like in 2006 when I went from SD to HDV. A huge orgasm ! Viva GH4 ! :) Baby Hypergonar anamorphic 1.75X lens on Qioptiq LINOS Mevis-C C-mount lens 35mm f1.6 (most of the shot were taken at f2) No diopter, no CC, variable Cokin ND filter EOSHD guide cineV preset settings 4KC mode 1080P streaming version on Vimeo, 4K version available for download 180° shutter speed 200 ASA
  2. Here is a movie done with the SLR Magic Anamorphot 50, a 1.33X anamorphic lens. All the details are subtitled in the movie, here are the material : SLR Magic Anamorphot 50, 1.33X anamorphic lens 1-On Sony A7 with Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 pancake lens 2-On Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Nikon E Serie 50mm f1.8 pancake lens and Lumix 20mm pancake lens Some of the shots done with the focal reducer TurboLens, a cheaper version of the SpeedBooster Some of the shot done with SLR Magic achromatic diopters (0.33X and 1.3X) and Tokina 0.5X diopter ND variable filter No color correction
  3. Great ! send us some pictures ! :) How much does it cost ?
  4. I'm using it with SLR achromat heavy diopters, no problem... I also tried with two achromat diopters.... :) But obviously you have to be a little careful ;)
  5. for personal reason I have to sell my SLR Magic Anamorphot. I'm coming here first but if there is no proposition I will put it on auction tomorrow on Ebay. the sale is for the lens only with its caps and its box. The lens is like new. Send PM for proposition. Thank You
  6. Yes me, it's working perfect ! I have also put it on variable ND, so I can put the diopter alone, the ND alone, or the diopter + the ND. It's enough strong to carry all this, even with my heavy achromatic diopters.
  7. Sometimes there is nice d-mount ;) Sometimes there is nice d-mount ;) http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=331129090888&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
  8. Sure, but... There is always a but ;) anamorphic does not like fast aperture... But i will do some wide open aperture tests.... :)

  10. Hi anamorpholovers ! :) A friend of mine gave me for few days the Zhong Yi Lens Turbo M43/Nikon, a cheaper cousin of the Speed Booster from Metabones : What is it going to give ? Olympus OM-D E-M5 + Zhongyi Lens Turbo + Nikon 50mm f1.8 E Serie More to come, any dream welcome ;)
  11. My baby Hypergonar.... But it's mine ;) hyperfocal, 1.75X, but sorry 85mm on FF (maybe 70mm but did not found the lens yet), 35mm on M43
  12. I'm going to have the pancake 40mm Konica F1.8 Hexanon. Apparently it is working good with the SLR anamorphot, more tests soon.
  13. The 1st minute is OMD, then Sony A7 up to 4:35, then OMD then A7 coming back at 6:55.... The choice is very difficult. Personally I prefer the A7, especially for it's stills, but the stabilization of the OMD is tremendous... Apparently the video mode of the next OM-D generation is better, you can read the post of EOSHD. I think the best camera isn't out now, maybe the upcoming 4K from Sony will have the stabilization ? Apparently the GH4 does not have it :p Seb
  14. Hahaha the environment takes live thru the eye of the videographer ;)
  15. Thanks Lucian :) I've filmed flares to show how they look. But it is also a personal taste ;)
  16. Thanks gunho, I've used a 77mm variable ND filter, wich i the size of the thread of the anamorphot
  17. Thanks Dave :) As far as I know the LA7200 goes from 17mm and the SLR 20mm... So the difference is not important.
  18. Hi everybody and anamorphic lovers ! Here is my 1st movie with the upcoming SLR Magic anamorphot 1.33X - 50 anamorphic lens on OM-D & Sony A7 !!! :) It's now since one week that I own the upcoming new anamorphic lens from SLR Magic, the anamorphot 1.33X - 50. It's a compact and light 1.33X anamorphic lens, working from 40mm on full frame and 20mm on M43 systems. It has the particularity of having a focus ring for close focus, it's very convenient because you can use it without diopters. Another difference seems to be the usuability of shooting at fast apertures. I even did a fast test at T0.95 on the SLR Magic 25mm and the image was still usable ! More tests to come. I've used two cameras with two different lenses on this movie. First the OM-D OM-5 from Olympus. Despite it's not so good video codec, this camera has what the other cameras don't have (yet) : an incredible 5 axis stabilization system. The addition of the Lumix 20mm with the SLR Magic anamorphot on the OM-D make quite the perfect combo. The problem that I still have with the love-able OM-D is finding the best image mode. I'm usually using the "Art3" mode Pale&Light Color (like in this movie), or sometimes "Art4" mode Light tone mode. Second the new Sony A7, the first full frame hybrid camera. For me this camera is very lovable too. For the first time it's offering the same flexibility than M43 systems : putting thousand third part lenses (such as Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Contax, Leica, M39, M42, Cine lenses, and so on....). And enjoy those lenses in full frame. The 50$ Nikon 50mm f1.8 is a cheap and very good pancake lens. I've put on the Sony A7 with a Novoflex E to Nikon mount adapter. The result with the SLR Anamorphot is very good too, and there is less distortion on the edges than the Lumix 20mm on the OM-D. It's real obvious when you watch the difference on the flares from the two lenses. Using the diopters on the SLR Magic anamorphot improve the sharpness of the image. The 0.33X achromatic diopter from SLR Magic seems good and offer more sharpness, but it is not indispensable for close focus, because of the close up focus ring of the lens. The 1.3X gives the possibility to film closer to the subject, and the 3X I'm using too... The three diopters of the movie are reavealing tremendous flares, as you can see at the end of the "Crêpes scene". Thank you for watching ! Any comment are welcome ! :) SLR Magic anamorphot 1.33X - 50 anamorphic lens SLR Magic 0.33X and 1.3X achromatics diopters Marumi 3X achromatic diopter on Sony A7 with Nikon 50mm f1.8 E Serie and Olympus OM-D O-M5 with Lumix 20mm f1.7 pancake lens 1080 24P on the Sony 1080 30P on the Olympus from 200 ISO (most of the time), 800 ISO (kitchen scene) to 2000 ISO (couch scene) Apertures from f1.7 to f5.6, most of the shot taken at f2.8 Light Craft mark II variable ND filter Music : Trentemøller "Candy Tongue (Feat.
