  1. Hi Tito can you help me do you know what the front thread size of the KOWA 16s .

    Regards John.

  2. That's not a "bug", it's how that particular method for focusing anamorphics works. It's how the original cinemascope lenses, by Henri Chrétien, worked. It makes for lighter designs a lot of the time, and less glass elements, but has the downside of lowering your squeeze factor as you focus closer. It happens with ALL double focus systems. 🙂
  3. No, he didn't. Would you care to explain the "bug" in your own words?
  4. I'm opening up the 35mm live tomorrow on my channel. 11am PST. Join me and laugh as I struggle! 🙂 www.youtube.com/anamorphiconabudget
  5. but the 35mm has no Fuji mount
  6. My review is coming up soooon. www.youtube.com/anamorphiconabudget
  7. Hey Jamie, I'm glad the chart helped! That's a pretty specific question. If you want more details, you can send it at www.tferradans.com/askme . Otherwise, yes, they would work on both cameras, with different limitations.
  8. His note is not only about diopters, but the oval disks and anamorfakes. If you want more info on how to recreate the anamorphic look without anamorphic glass, I wrote an entire guide about it. www.anamorfakeit.com
  9. Hey guys, I started livestreaming on my channel - anamorphic on a budget, you're not familiar - and I'm doing a Helios 44 anamorfake next Wednesday at 11:30am PST. I'm giving away the resulting mod at the end of the process to someone in the stream, so there's a chance you can walk away with a fresh lens on the way. I'd love to see a bunch of you there. I'm answering questions there too, so if you got something to ask, that's a good chance!
  10. I'm trying to shoot my tests with the rehoused Helios today so I can put the video up next weekend! Subscribe to the channel if you haven't yet! http://www.youtube.com/tferradans Right on point, my friend.
  11. I really wanted to like this video! The opening is super strong and the visuals are very nice. But as a lens review, he talks so little of it and has so little footage using it, it's disappointing. Lots of buildings and upshots of town that don't show any bokeh or the parallax he talked so much about. Plus that "Blade Runner" grade ain't cool. Am I going crazy here, or is that how you feel too?
  12. If you could post screenshots, things would be easier to understand! I do a lot of AE and I don't remember having an issue with this template. Also, VashiMorphic is cool, but I have a lot more post tutorials in my guide: www.anamorfakeit.com
  13. Thank you! 😄 I like the Samyang because they're much more neutral than the Ironglass and in the end you might end up spending way less plus having full control over the mods. There's also Contax, or even a Russian set, but the Samyangs are guaranteed to work fine with your clients. Check out www.anamorfakeit.com for more info and samples and a guide!
  14. Series 9 are unthreaded 86mm, so maybe you can get some wiggle room there? They are usually cheap enough that you could order just for trying, and they have +0.5. If you wanna be extra safe - and extra large - 4.5" and 138mm also exist, or look for the elusive +0.8 4x4 I found once. I'm a bit skeptical and would only believe after seeing results and comparisons...
  15. I'm a big advocate of faking it. Get a spare samyang set and install fakes on all the lenses. Done, focus super quick, big aperture, sharp images. Works fine with gimbals. Boom. Another option is to get the Sirui 50/1.8 and be creative about simulating other focal lengths with it. I have a video about the subject coming up in a few weeks.
