  1. For the weight, size and this one feature 👇 I would sell my S1 and get the S5

    [Anamorphic 4K] 3328×2496 (4:3),
    29.97p, 150Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit LongGOP) / 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, LPCM)
    23.98p, 150Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit LongGOP) / 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, LPCM)
    [FHD] 1920×1080
    59.94p, 100Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit LongGOP) / 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, LPCM)
    29.97p, 100Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit LongGOP) / 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, LPCM)
    23.98p, 100Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit LongGOP) / 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, LPCM)

  2. Question for S1 owners: I'm testing the Timelapse features and wondering what the bit depth & colour space is for video file created in camera. I used to have to import all files in Lightroom, do adjustments then export to folder then import to Quicktime then export as video file.

    As I'll be mixing the timelapses with V-log 10-bit 422 footage shot with same camera it'd be nice if video file created in camera has same properties but I'm guessing no as options are only resolution and frame rates.

    Or, anyone know an app where I can read video properties? 


  3. *Only 345 actuations since new shutter replacement!


    I am selling my much cherished Sony A7rII with Sony official battery grip plus 2 batteries. Both items come with original boxes and usual accessories.

    I recently sent the camera to Sony UK to have a brand new shutter fitted along with a new MB Charge Unit and new Mounted C board and also a new SD card door. I have also taken off the rear protection for the LCD screen and replaced it with a new one. This camera is functioning like new, ready to go to work!

    • Included in the sale:
    • Sony A7rII Body
    • Sony Battery Grip VG-C2EM 
    • 2 x NP-FW50 Batteries
    • Battery Charger
    • Shoulder Strap
    • Body Cap
    • Sony Multi Interface Shoe Cap
    • Cable Protector
    • Micro USB Cable

    The overall condition is good but for a few small marks on the front where I had it in a cage when filming. Please see photos.

    I'm based in France and will post to European Union and consider elsewhere although postage will be higher.


    Any questions please ask!







  4. Hey Andrew when did you make the claim for the upgrade? I just made mine today and it said it could take up to 28 days! I had no idea they'd be sending it out in a an actual packet!  I imagine all claims will be checked individually by 'hand', I mean how many man hours does it take to validate all claims considering all units sold plus shipped out. Unbelievable they don't have a more efficient method of doing this.

    Careful there, that's got grey import written all over it!

    How/where did you do this exactly? I thought it wasn't being released until July 31? 

    In case you missed it elsewhere, here's the link:


    Go to Claim Now and follow instructions. You must take a photo of sticker on your box with serial & model no. etc and also upload a copy of your receipt of purchase. It says it could take up to 28 days to receive it though.

    I'm curious if anyone has tried or seen footage of someone using the 6k/4k photo mode in 4:3 on the S1 for some full frame anamorphic. I played around with the photo mode this morning but I don't have any anamorphic glass or adapters.


    On 5/10/2019 at 10:48 PM, Jordan Drake said:

    The S1/S1R 6K Photo is actually 3:2 instead of 4:3 like the GH5/G9. Choose your anamorphic glass accordingly.

    You can choose 4:3 in 4K or 6K photo mode. Here's a short vid using 4k Photo mode with 4:3 aspect ratio, Mamiya 105mm and Möller 32/2x Anamorphot. There's no colour correction just very slight exposure adjustments on a few different picture profiles.  It would be nice to get 25fps (or 24) atm it's 30 or 60p in 4K and 30 in 6K. It would also be nice to have HLG for this mode. Also, I wonder what bit rate and colour space the file records at in photo mode, anyone know?

    If it can do 4/6k in photomode at 30fps 4:3 I don't see why anamorphic wouldn't be possible with a FW update. 

    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? 

  8. 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.

    I am also hoping to use it on my Moller 32/2x. I will use a 72mm front clamp with a 72-58mm step ring.

    You mean to attach the Proto to the Moller? Why 72mm?

    Rectilux is doing its thing. waiting for my hardcore DNA :glasses:

    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. 

  11. 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.

    over priced seller. I'd stay away.

    I have the dirt on this guy.  Definitely look for a different eBay seller.

    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. 

  13. 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 ? ? According to my kowa, they do. How to align properly, will it distort image if I'm off slightly?


  14. 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?
