    Been trying to find more info re this lens such as source, availability, cost, etc. which is proving difficult. I did find an email on facebook and have tried that (waiting for response). In the meantime,  I was wondering if you could help with this. Would greatly appreciate any info on lens, contact info, etc.

    Also was wondering if you have continued to work with the lens and, if so, are you still satisfied?





    sorry to JSD to hijack, but @YAUN I have a brand new never used Aivascope V2 1.75x that I am about to sell...I have three 1.75x's been using one for a long project and wanted backups in case of emergency but only need two :) I'll send you a pm

    I'm a little confused about focal length. Can you calculate what 50mm +anamorphic+metabons would be on pocket? Thank you!

    It ends up being around a 35mm field of view (which is insane!)

    50mm x 1.9crop = 95mm fov 

    95mm x .64speedbooster = 60.8mm fov

    60.8mm / 1.75x anamorphic = 34.7mm fov

    Any news man? Would like to see some footage from you and a couple of words about using experience. Have pocket 4k too.

    hey yeah! Still waiting for some gear and the project I am working on with this setup doesn't start production till late March or so.  But here's some stills from test footage in the meantime.  I am going to be using the Nikkor 50 1.8 and the 85 f2 as taking lenses together with an XL .64 Metabones...also waiting to receive a V1 Aivascope which I will use in some shots for flaring.  The V2 does not flare unless you really blast it with something.  I ended up with a ProtoDNA thanks to the wonderful advice from JSD and it's awesome.  I am just now opening a box with the Titla G2X and Nucleus Nano.  Will get her all balanced up and report back with some pics!  Planning on mostly using one Pocket4K on sticks, another dedicated to the gimbal for tracking shots.

  4. Clearing out some stuff I don't use, this is a mint condition Metabones Nikon N/F to Sony E mount Ultra Speedbooster with 1 stop and .71X fov

    I don't have the container or box, will just be the speedbooster and both end caps with the support piece as shown

    Prefer local Los Angeles area pick up for $390 so you can see the adapter in person - can ship to US via PP with additional shipping and G&S fee

    If this is your only scope I highly recommend looking at the new ProtoDNA than the FVD. I love my FVD but it and the HCDNA aren't really that good for small scopes unless you absolutely need to go wide. It kinda defeats the purpose of having a small anamorphic.


    I also recommend looking into a 52mm Nikon diopter set (No. 0, 1, and 2). They work very well with the Aivascopes.

    Oh I didn't know they were available yet...last I read on the site was a Plan B :) I'll contact through the site thnx for the info!  will be nice to have a couple single focusers for various sizes.

    Hey all! I just got my V2 Aivascope baby 1.75X lens and really excited to put it through its paces.  I know there are some excellent posts recently from JSD about this lens but just wanted to start a dedicated thread for anyone new looking, or if anyone wanted something specifically tested.

    I'll be mainly using it on a BMPCC4K but will also be using on my A7S2, and possibly my BMPCC.  I'm still waiting for my Rapido FVD and presently without diopters so there's not much to test yet but hopefully everything arrives soon - in the meantime will try and collect everything I need to get shooting some sample footage ;)

  7. FS: SLR Magic 1.33X-40 (larger original single focus edition)

    $400 (cash/PP G&S add 3%)

    Los Angeles area local pickup preferred so you can check out the lens in person first.

    Purchased second hand a few weeks ago but don't need anymore.  Comes with off brand variable ND, cap screw on rear mount, box.  

    I would rate it as near mint, it looks unused.  Single focus system with built in focus gear

  8. Embarrassingly I haven't shot much video on my A7S2 (and recently bought another BM Pocket).  A trip to the local fair was a great excuse to film some bokeh with my trusty 2X FF58.  I haven't even uploaded any 4K stuff to Vimeo so it was all a great reason to experiment.  Used Cine4 with s-gamut3, light grade with Film Convert.  I forgot my FF58 focuses past infinity so the out of focus bokeh isn't sharp...but ended up nice anyways.  I brought along photo lenses but ended up just taking a bunch of video instead - and wow battery life goes fast in 4K!  It's in 4K on Vimeo


  9. Did a quick test yesterday with my RX IV - quick question, is everyone keeping at 180 deg shutter even at the HFR rates...I ran out of light and had to shoot 360 last night and it seemed ok, will try proper testing in bright light to see the motion blur differences. Didn't have enough light for 1/480s (or whatever it is in the camera for 240fps) - also need to play with the profile settings, so far it grades just like my a7S - might just try PP1 with some minor changes.  Thnx for all the info guys great thread

  10. Did you take a drone with you on vacation or did you rent one there - and which one do you find satisfactory to fly that camera/lens combination? I really like those shots.

    Packed my Phantom 2, with the 3axis gimbal and a GoPro Hero3+Black - very small and cheap, gets pretty great shots for what it is  :)  Just have to grade the hell out of the footage


    Great work Kaz:)  Love the star flaring of that voigtlander when the torch is in use.  perfect stars

    thanks! it's a fun lens, usually the one on my a7 bodies...will be getting a 2x oval ff58 and the wide adapter soon, that will be very interesting

  11. Actually the two were never used together, the taking lens for the Anamorphot was the Voight 50, although I have used them together and it's a fantastic combination. I was planning on doing the whole trip with the ff58 but I didn't bring the right adapter ring (!!). You can tell the shots in the opening are with the ff58 since mine has the 1.5x oval aperature...about to order 2x one to use with the Anamorphot that should be fantastic. The a7S in slog is problematic outside with the 3200iso even stopped down I didn't have enough ND so shot the bright exteriors with other profiles and a Tiffen variable ND - which is ok when you need just a little but turned the footage pretty brown. I'll be getting some dedicated irnd filters to also use with my bmpcc
