  1. SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter + Diopters / US $820 EBAY Listing Includes: Anamorphot, 2 Diopters + case, Taking lens adapters + case, Soft pouch Next to new condition. Used gently on a handful of projects in between clean storage and frequent air dusting. I bought this right after it came out on B&H Photo. Marvelous piece of gear. MUCH easier to use than vintage projector lenses and half-assed clamps (coming from a previous Vid-Atlantic + anamorphic owner). The taking lens facing side is 62mm filter threading. Front allows 77mm filters. Includes three step-down rings to allow you to mount the anamorphot on lenses with a 49mm, 52mm, or 58mm front thread. Included Diopters allow focus closer than 1 meter. Diopters and rings come in their own cases. US Buyers & PayPal ONLY. THANKS
  2. From my EBAY LISTING: Next to new condition. Used gently on a handful of projects in between clean storage and frequent air dusting. I bought this right after it came out on B&H Photo.

Would not recommend using with widest aperture because, like it or not, adding more glass in front of your lens does affect the overall quality. Depends entirely on taking lens. I’ve used this with old vintage Helios, Contax, Voigtlander, Zeiss Jena 40mm, 50mm, and 55mm taking lenses (Full Frame). Picture quality is a bit soft on lenses higher than 85mm (Full Frame). Had to stop down to at least 5.6 or higher. 1.33x squeeze is manageable but not the most anamorphic looking out there. Personally prefer sweet spot at 1.5x. Flares are mostly bluish, not strongly organic. Look is more clinical than old school. No silver bullet for amazing looking Blade Runner, Die Hard, etc. footage. Have patience, experiment, fail, try again... Suggested Taking Lens Based on Sensor Size 17-85mm focal length can be used for S16 sensor. 20-85mm focal length can be used for MFT sensor. 35-85mm focal length can be used for S35 and APS-C sensor. 40-85mm focal length can be used for Full Frame sensor. Note: These are recommendations only, and you should make your own judgement about what lens to use based on your observation and experience. Recommended Maximum Aperture Values f/2.8 for 20 to 50mm focal lengths f/4.0 for 55 to 85mm focal lengths f/5.6 for 90 to 135mm focal lengths
  3. Real sharp! I had a 16/15/1.5x with GH2 and found the combo beyond frustrating to get one mostly in focus shot.
  4. Price reduced to $900.00 - via Paypal only. Hell of a deal for this unique lens.
  5. From SLR Magic: http://www.slrmagic.co.uk/amfilerating/file/download/file_id/1/ Several methods exist for un-squeezing and working with anamorphic footage in your editor or effects software. You could specify a project resolution of 2554x1080 and scale your footage to match the project's width (footage must be shot in 16:9 ratio). Or, if you're primarily interested in uploading to the web you could instead specify a project resolution of 1920x812 and scale your footage to match the project's height (footage must be shot in 16:9 ratio).
  6. Selling my Bolex anamorphot 8/19/1.5x. Bought it on ebay Christmas 2013 after looking everywhere for this particular lens. As you already know, it is extremely rare to find one. Optics are good, no haze, fungus, scratches, dents. Minor dust particles that don't affect quality at all. I took great care of this little lens. I'm taking for granted that members of this forum know the fine details and value of this particular lens already but feel free to ask me anything about it. Included with lens are the original case (2X), with tools, soft pouch I purchased to keep lens in, and clamp to mount onto your taking lens. Rear thread is 24mm. Lens is quite small. Minimum focusing distance of 2.5 feet. Maximum focusing to infinity. Sharp through all apertures. Requires focusing on both this lens and taking lens. Comes with lens hood, and original miscellaneous equipment. I'm including a Vid Atlantic anamorphic clamp. It has a rear thread of 60mm. Comes with 2 step up rings. 52-60mm and 58-60mm. You can, of course attach more to make your taking lens fit. On crop sensor cameras (7D, T2i, GH2, etc.) widest lens you can use is 40 - 50mm. Any wider and you get vignetting. On full frame sensors I think you have to use 85 or longer to avoid vignetting. Used mainly on a Lumix GH2 micro 4/3 sensor with different Nikkor 35, 50, 85mm primes. If you love the look of authentic widescreen ratio this is one of the best tools to give you that. Search Vimeo for "bolex moller anamorphic" and for some amazing results this lens can do. Here are some 2013 posts from my instagram account as proof I actually own the lens:

  8. Selling a used Century Optics 1.33x ratio anamorphic lens. Cosmetically it's in excellent condition. No scratches, or fungus or dings, besides where the screws are. Rear thread is 37mm. Comes with 37mm - 52mm rear adapter and front screw-on lens cap. No need for clamps.   Best used on a cropped sensor camera APS-C or micro 4/3 or miniDV. Full frame would work too but give you vignetting on wide angle lenses.   This adapter is similar to the Panasonic LA72000. No focusing is necessary.    I just bought this lens on ebay the beginning of December. I've barely owned it. In my opinion, with my lenses and my camera the image quality did not hold up enough to justify keeping it. Shows chromatic aberrations, not sharp at wide open apertures, but fits nicely.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/110993753985?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
