  1. Here is a link for more info on the lens. https://greatjoylens.com/50mm-t2-9-1-8x-anamorphic-lens/
  2. I have decided to part with this lens. It is in excellent like new condition and comes in the original box with all accessories including the 2 year manufacturer warranty card. I am asking $1200 for it.
  3. Location: Colorado For sale is a Kowa 16-H that comes with a Helios 44-2 and the full set of Rapido accessories allowing you to convert this into a solid single piece lens. Additionally, it comes with the HTN locking front adapter for the Kowa 16-H, this provides a filter thread for mounting the FVD-16A and locks the focus of the Kowa to prevent accidental focus changes. This setup in combination with provided setup in rings allows you to connect the Helios to the Kowa into a single solid lens but with the additional freedom of being able to adjust the focus of both the Helios and Kowa to allow for much closer focusing. Usually you set the Kowa and Helios to infinity and focus using the FVD-16A to a minimum of 3.3 feet but with this alternate setup you can set the Kowa and Helios to a focus of 5 feet and then use the FVD-16A to focus from 5 feet to under 2 feet. This setup is also smaller and lighter than using the full Rapido setup while the rapido is more solid and secure. The kit includes. Kowa 16H Helios 44-2 Rapido FVD-16A Rapido Front Metal Jacket Rapido VClamp V3 full Rapido Rear Metal Jacket for the Helios. HTN Front Adapter for the Kowa 16H Step up ring to connect the Helios to the Rapido VClamp when not using the RMJ. Lens caps for the FMJ and FVD-16A EF and PL mount for the Helios Also available but not included in this kit is a SLR Magic 82mm Variable ND filter that I use with this setup. Pictures to follow. Price: $1500 O.B.O
  4. Thank you. I appreciate that. I just realized this was posted in the wrong forum. Can a mid please move this to the gear for sale forum? Thanks.
  5. SONY SRW-9000PL with all three optional upgrade boards (HKSR-9001 / 9002 / 9003) and PL lens mount transforms this camera into an ENG-style Sony F35. This camera has the exact same sensor and image as the F35, only better portability as the interface box, shoulder mount, and HDCAM-SR recorder are all built into the body on the SRW-9000PL. - Super 35mm-sized CCD (Global shutter) - PL Lens Mount - 1080p - 24p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p - 10 bit 4:4:4 - S-Gamut Color Space - ISO 800 Mode Gamma Curve - HD-SDI Output Includes: - HKSR-9001 (HD-SDI Expansion Board) - HKSR-9002 (Picture Cache Expansion Board) - HKSR-9003 (RGB 4:4:4 Processor Expansion - Sony SRK-CP1 (same control panel as is found on the Sony F65) Location: Colorado Sony SRW 9000 PL with all option boards and AC power supply Sony HDVF C30WR 2 x Sony SRW-1/SRPC-1 (one set is fully functional the other set has a SRPC has a nvram 0103 error, it still works for playback and capture the only issue I have noticed is that remote deck control from a PC comes and goes about once a second) Flight Case for 9000PL Flight Case for SRW-1 Kona 3g sdi capture card with breakout cable 13 x 33 minute HDCAM-SR tapes You can capture directly from the camera but I choose to use the SRW-1 to distribute use of the hdcam decks. The camera does have a 3G sdi out and can send record trigger signals without tape in the camera, I have never tested with an external recorder though. https://imgur.com/a/3xxTKmr Price: $3600 OBO
  6. Hello everyone, After much thought I have decided to sell my Lomo Foton Anamorphic lens, it was serviced over a year ago by Olex at Olex Camera and has seen little use since. It also includes a 0.8M diopter. These lenses especially with a diopter are rare and the price is lower than you are going to find anywhere else. Thanks, https://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/49603-fs-lomo-foton-anamorphic-37-140mm-pl-with-08m-diopter/
  7. I am no expert and have just been researching this a little and it appears that the 480 gb drives do have 512 gb of storage. It appears that what happened was SSD drives were originally labeled with there full capacity of 512 gb but only 480 gb was actually usable for storage due to over provisioning of the drive. At some point SSD's and RED switched from labelling the drives with the useable data rather than the full capacity which is were this whole mess comes from. This has been explained in the numerous threads out there and if true would make your class action lawsuit unlikely to succeed since RED mags labeled 512 gb with an 480 gb SSD inside do have 512 gb of memory inside.
  8. I will add the Lomo Foton 37-1400mm to the mix. One of my favorite lenses, it has a vintage look and a softness that balances out some of the sharpness of digital. It is very small and relatively light weight, considering it is all metal, and can be found for under $1K. It has an interchangeable mount that you can get several mounts for I know PL and EF for sure. It's biggest issues are that it is not very fast T4 and covers s35 so no full frame. Also they are from the 70's and 80's so condition varies. One thing to keep in mind is that it doesn't matter if the lens is parfocal if your FFD isn't correct.
  9. Go to image size, set mode to percent and set the width to 133%, leaving height at 100% if you want to maximize image size. you can also leave the width at 100% and set the height to 75%.
  10. I have never used this particular lens but all of the anamorphic adapter I have used decreased as you focused closer. For example I had a Kowa 16H that was 2x at infinity and about 1.8x at min focus.
  11. Also I am sensing from your replys that you may not have a complete understanding of focal lengths and how the relate to different formats. If I am wrong I am sorry but I recommend you study up on that a bit first.
  12. There are no speed boosters that can boost that far, APS-C is is the maximum the GH5 can use. I believe the Pocket does have the same sensor, 4:3 and anamorphic modes are probably likely but I don't what support it currently has and what is planned. There are speedboosters that can go from FF to APS-C but it all depends on the flange focal distances of the lenses and camera. So you can buy a speedbooster to go from FF to APS-C on a Sony where you have EF lenses and the Sony E mount.. As for focal lengths and anamorphic adapters I think the widest focal length that can be used is 58mm FF with a 2X stretch, I could do that with a Helios 44 58mm and a Kowa 16H but there was still a tiny bit of vignetting. For other formats its all about equivalence so you could go as low as 30mm on M43 because the field of view, which is what matters for vignetting, is the same for a 60mm FF lens as a 30mm M43 lens. The anamorphic adapter has a maximum FOV the taking lens can have and not vignette, nothing will change that.
  13. Yes, that is basically the concept of a speed booster. A speed booster takes a larger format lens and allows you to attach it to a smaller format camera. It then strinks the image circle of the larger format lens to better fit the smaller sensor and in the process the image gets brighter. In order for this to work the flange focal distance of the lens needs to be much larger than the flange focal distance of the camera in order to fit the optics required inside. So for the GH5 it has a FFD of 18 or 20mm, I don't recall which, and you can get a speed booster for EF mount lenses which has an FFD of 44mm. With the speed booters that are available today they can take the image circle of an APS-C EF mount lens and shrink it down to fit the M43 sensor of the GH5 maintaining the depth of field, field of view and adding an addition 1+ stops of brightness. What you end up with is basically a APS-C GH5 that now has an EF mount or Nikon, etc...
