  1. It has a 4:3 sensor, would be great to record video open gate when shooting anamorphic. Stills anamorphic open gate would be nice too, of course.
  2. Has anyone tried this yet? BMPCC speedbooster on GH5?
  3. Posted this on the anamorphic shooters facebook page as well...Ian, in response to the above (use CDNA with all anamorphic lenses), how about this: Strange question perhaps but has anyone paired the rectilux core DNA with an Iscorama 54 by any chance? The benefits of shooting at wider apertures and closer focus seem appealing. Only issue I could see is vignetting on wider lenses. Will it make ALL anamorphic lenses usable at f/1.2? Or only certain ones? I love the look of my Iscorama54 non-MC, wouldn't want to trade it for anything even if it's not the sharpest, just want to be able to open the aperture more. And closer focus throw without diopters That is an interesting suggestion, perhaps when aligning the anamorphic adapter after swapping out taking lenses as well. I have the Isco54 on a 3D printed bracket (similar to Tito Ferradans' one which he recently posted in Anamorphic shooters FB page) that goes on 15mm rods. This to speed up taking lens changes on set, and having horizontal alignment more or less "fixed" (although I find i still have to keep checking as it can go off a hair, and get non-leveled flares!). But I see no spot to "grip" the rectilux with a similar clamp: one would have to screw it into the lens or an adapter ring that goes on rods for fast and secure adding/removing the rectilux. But if it is screwed in, I'm worried it might loosen when using a follow focus, especially motorised ones like DJI wireless FF.
  4. Hoi Wilco, Waar in Nederland ben je? Welke maat zijn de diopters en ND filter? 95mm? groeten uit Rotterdam! Martin
  5. ‚ÄčOK, I just ordered a Tokina 0.4. I have the SLR achromats, so I will do a comparison with them as soon as I get it and my isco 54 Tito, how wide of a taking lens do you think I can mount the isco54 with 77mm diopters? or 72mm for that matter. Will hopefully know in a few days, will keep you posted.
  6. What do you guys think of the SLR Magic +0.33 and +1.33? They are 77mm so would help fight vignetting. I'm also shopping for Iscorama options, looking anywhere from the Schneider and Tiffen 4.5" +0.5 you can get on B&H and ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/271658825773?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/398983-REG/Schneider_68070545_4_5_Water_White_1_2.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/56706-REG/Tiffen_138CU12_138mm_Close_up_1_2_Lens.htmlto the tokina +0.4 for longer lenses.
  7. Hi Yannis, would you mind sharing what kind of adapter you used to mount the baby iscomorphot? I have one but can't find clamps/adapter rings that work for me... Cheers! Martin
  8. hi, I already own the lens, would you consider selling the clamp separately? Please let me know what price you have in mind if you do! Martin
  9. Thanks a lot for the feedback guys! Will email Bernie for a quote. Cheers!
  10. No it is just a limited range, a bit beyond the focus range on both ends. I think I paid too much for this lens and starting to have regrets. Hoping some kind of magic can be coaxed out of this iscomorphot paired with s16 lenses and the bmpcc! If it can be fixed that is.
  11. yes it does still move on its own, thats exactly it! the screws are still there...
  12. Great to hear that. Im still awaiting response. Saw the new order page though. Would iscorama optimized be useful for any anamorphic adapter I wonder?
  13. Let me clarify the issue: the front part of the lens consists of a black part that has all of the focal marks, and a zebra patterned part. These two parts are disconnected from each other although they should not be. When focusing there is a grinding noise and the two parts move disconnectedly.
  14. Hi everyone,   I just bought this iscomorphot 8 /1.5x that I thought was in good condition, had a lot of interaction with the ebay seller so trusted that all was as promised -'near mint condition' as almost everything on ebay is ;)   Then when it arrived, i noticed the front focus ring being loose. Also, there is quite a lot of dust particles inside the lens, which may be limiting even more so. I knew the lens would have it's flaws, but is it worth salvaging/trying to repair?    My hope was that it would be a more useful lens for mounting on s16 and c-mount lenses with my (hopefully soon to arrive) BMC pocket camera, as the elements of those lenses are much smaller. I saw eoshd forum member 'quickhitrecord' and redstan/tony wilson comment that with the right taking lens, it may perform better.    Any comments? Should I try to repair or return this lens?   Martin
  15. there's a new update on their facebook page- new order page with Paypal option up tomorrow https://www.facebook.com/DogSchidtOptiks?ref=stream&hc_location=stream
