  1. Brian, I'm a big fan of your Speedboosters. I understand you are working on anamorphic primes that will uniquely take 4:3 to 2:39? What price range are you aiming for with those?

      Hi Sage:

      For anamorphic I'm doing what I can to keep costs under control.  However, I'm using a Panavision-style focusing system which requires a pair of counter-rotating cylindrical astigmatizers precisely linked to the rear focusing lens.  Tolerances on the rotation mechanism are just a few arc-minutes, so the mechanical complexity is similar to a clock!  As a result, these can't be low budget items, but they certainly will be vastly cheaper (and better!) than, say, Hawk.

      I expect no less from you! That's exciting. IWhen do you estimate the first lens will be ready?

      I always felt the 2x convention needed a shake up; I suppose the desqueeze camera feature will have to be updated..
