  1. Slow mo looks pretty good. There's some aliasing on finer details but usable? Maybe. YouTube crushed the hell out of it. A bump in bit rate for 180fps mode would be most welcome in future software update but what they really need to give us is full manual control in 180fps mode, at the minute it's Program auto only! https://youtu.be/SF_COR7p5_Q
  2. Andrew writes For anamorphic users there is a 5K H.265 video mode in 3:2 (and I believe 4:3 as well) Isn't this anamorphic mode in all but name? Anyone know how many fps it is?
  3. Selling a Möller Anamorphot 32/2x. This is quite a rare scope but what makes this even more rare is that it has Gold/Orange/Purple flares! I've owned several of these over the last few years and this is the only one I've ever seen with these warm flares. The bad: The glass is not perfect. There is slight coating loss on the back element due to previous overzealous cleaning and the front has some micro marks most likely by the same cause. The good: The image is beautiful with above 'bad' having absolutely no affect whatsoever. In fact the spectacular flares are probably due to this. When direct light hits this, it lights up like Christmas. It's a very sharp scope with great vintage ana look. Please watch some tests here: Selling for €450 Please DM me if you've any questions. Thanks
  4. Time for my a7rII to go to pastures new. Originally bought in Calumet UK so not grey import. In good condition with a few small marks on body where I had it attached to the Tilta cage and very few rub marks on back LCD, barely noticeable and invisible when LCD is on. Has been well looked after. I have used it for a music video, short film (recently shown in a gallery in Paris on a huge screen, 4K image was 👌) portraiture/lifestyle photography, interior and architectural photography. Can be seen on my website foodforthought.tech Functions perfectly. Will post from France to Europe + States with insured shipping only. Included in sale: Sony a7rII Body Body Cap Battery Charger (I will supply UK or Euro power cord depending on your location) 2 original Sony batteries + 3 generic batteries Shoulder Strap Micro USB Cable Cable Protector Original Box Sony a7rII Manual Also for sale is a Tilta cage for the a7rII/a7sII: Quick Release Top Handle Sony a7rII - a7sII Cage Quick Release Base Plate Lens Converter Ring Support 2x 30cm Rods Sony a7rII: €1700 Tilta Cage: €250
  5. The kit certainly looks good but how about functionality, have you hooked this up with a follow focus? How sturdy is it? I've seen Rapido's videos of pulling focus (https://vimeo.com/256545617 - https://vimeo.com/256545577) and it's all over the place, presumably done by hand as focus inches along in short increments.
  6. @seku That's not bad, it took about 6 months for my 3FFS to arrive from first ordering it! It has gone on to pastures new thou some time ago but I'm back in the game for something else but I really don't want to join FB again just to contact them. Let us know how you get on with your new HCDNA.
  7. @Bold Good to know that. You have made a single focus solution also? Are you selling them online, website? I reached out to the guy that makes the focuser8, it looks good but he has no plans to make a bigger version. @whoisjsd Ah so you use a 72>58mm step down ring. @seku I don't have facebook. Do you know if he has them in stock?
  8. You mean to attach the Proto to the Moller? Why 72mm? When will you be getting yours, is the next batch available? I've tried writing a few times to John for info without any response.
  9. I haven't heard of ProtoDNA and I can see (after googling it) that it has Rectilux's name emblazoned on the front so I assume John has had a hand in the design? Can you tell me more about it? Are you involved in the project? I'm guessing that because you refer to anamorphicstore's Rangefinder as 'junk' and seem a little disparaging about it, you might have a dog in the race. Do you have user experience with the Rangfinder? Also, ProtoDNA's minimum focus distance is 0.7 whereas the Rangfinder's is 0.3, that's quite a margin. ProtoDNA's $495 price is a bit more palatable tough to anamorphicstore's $649 (it's inexplicably gone up this past week from $599). I wonder if either will fit my Moller 32/2x, some footage with proper focus pulling at different distances would do these products the world of good otherwise trust issues arise.
  10. I came across anamorphicstore on eBay while searching for single focus solutions and he has a premium optics version of his Rangefinder. All his feedback has been positive with one in particular saying 'incredible quality' so why can't I find any reviews of the product online and what dirt do you have on this guy? The video associated with the premium Rangefinder looks good but there seems to be only one focus pull (@1:18) in the whole video! https://youtu.be/n4tFj5a9-5g Anyone know what Rectilux is up to? I see very few updates from them.
  11. I recently took the back element off my Möller 32/2x to clean the fungus from the inside and outside. I realised outside surfaces have fine cleaning scratches and would like to find a lens polishing service that could just make it all go away... Does anyone know of such a service in Europe? I was quoted by one source £400 per surface! This included recoating but then again, do anamorphic lenses have a different coating than normal lenses? My previous version had amazing blue flares, will this affect the lens having a different coating? How will they know what type of coating goes to this model. I'm guessing it has just one coating, not multicoating. Also, on replacing the back element, being anamorphic do elements front and back need to be 90 degrees to one another ie. back: ⊂⊃ front 𝟶 ? According to my kowa, they do. How to align properly, will it distort image if I'm off slightly? Thanks

    Lens Rehab

    Anyone here know of a lens repair place in France, Belgium or the UK that can rid an old anamorphic lens of fungus and fine cleaning scratches? One that specialises in the polishing of optic elements. Has anyone successfully done this DIY, how hard is it? Thanks
