    Here you are...
    I went down to the station and filmed a few basic tests. This is a worst case scenario as far as setup... bad follow focus and lots of wind. But it's good to show what it can do.

    bzpop reacted to Dick Sweeney in Lens test Kowa Prominar 16 H - Sony Zeiss / Minolta MC   
    Heres a few lenses tested in stills mode - The Sony Zeiss 55 1.8 is sharp as - where as the Minolta MC 58 1.2 is loose and funky as hell. I need to get the Novoflex Minolta adaptor to iron out some of the issues - most of the funk lies at 1.2 - stopping it down reduces the life out of it - I think at F2 a happy medium can be struck although you loose those blacks which have that nice veiling flare.

    C35 is a beautiful lens, very sharp, great contast, amazing blue flares, close focus, convenient de-squeeze, truly Hollywood quality glass, but  i use it less and less, my heart is with 2x

    yeah, suits all my needs perfectly, although i wouldn't associate "one fits all mentality "  with Redstan. His highly specialized solutions for Kowas like16H and C35 are perfect.

    i am getting the whole setup, the lens and the focuser from Valdas, from the tests i saw on the web looks promising, will post results of my testing
    C35 is a very sharp lens, and on GH5  i can focus from 2 feet, but 1,5x is not enough to my eye,

    to render it out in Premiere in 5K  you need to switch H264 to H265

    yeah Dr Verbel, your design rocks! everybody else sucks :) ) )
    i agree,  and don't share "Dr. Verbel's" negativity, the more people  trying to do any kind of research and development in anamorphic glass area  - the better for filmmakers,
    people like John Barlow and Andrey Kramar, inventor of PAS SINGLE,   trying to bring affordable anamorphic solutions to us,  indie operators.
    total respect and best of luck!

    bzpop got a reaction from Timotheus in Anamorphic on a Budget.   
    SLR Magic rangefinder lived on my camera for couple days, and went back home:)
    it softens picture, not a lot, but still, and it makes setup bulky, for the same reason i am not after Core DNA, not giving up my small form factor for anything, well relatively small,
    so most likely Isco 36 or 42, but i still can't decide between single focus and 2x squeeze, 2x is so freakin good, i just love it!

    bzpop got a reaction from Liszon in How much did something like the 16H go for 5 years ago?   
    Good idea! gonna do too. I do believe if manufacturer will receive a few emails on regular basis they might start thinking about possibility.
    that was my first question to the moondog labs when i got their iPhone 1.33X adapter from kickstarter, if there s35 version anywhere on the roadmap, didn't get the answer

    well, Redstan still has some
    so the point of "this pointless discussion" is in the thread name,  clamp from Redstan  for Kowa 16H is the best available option today

    I'm right:)
    don't assure me, i have a few adapters from Raf, i also have 6 adapters from Redstan, never a problem;
    anyways, this looks more like a personal vendetta then a honest unbiased opinion,
    not nice tweak.

    with anamorphic adapters you want to have taking lens front element not to be too large, the shorter distance from the rear element of adapter to the front glass of the lens the better for the image, I believe Nikkor 50mm f1.8 has 52mm front thread, it is a great, cheap pancake lens and i would recommend it to have if you plan to use anamorphic adapters

    he he, i though you might get tricky and just crop it 2x, amazing shots, i'd say Ultrastar, but it's really hard to tell without seeing flare
