  1. A variation on the Flare inducing UV-Filter method established by Hans Punk.

    To get the Filter as close as possible to the back of the Cinelux I placed just the Filter-Glass inside the Step-Up Ring which is coupling my Lens with the Focus Module.

    68mm Filter-Glass fits perfectly inside a 52mm to 72mm Step-Up Ring and leaves enough play to screw it firmly to the FM.






    ​Lovely!!! thanks, would you mind share this to the the focus module lounge group on Facebook? I would appreciate that a lot.


  2. ​My firm advice is to wait for better solutions.

    We're all hungry and curious for better lenses, especially 2x.

    I've always thought from the moment I got my Kowa 4 years ago, "if only". If only it would be a single focus anamorphic.

    The image is just so wonderful.

    I know for a fact better anamorphic solutions are on the way.... wait and see.

    Cosmio, the reason the thread stays is that I am not here to act as a marketing platform. You can't just suddenly delete everyone's contribution to the thread, because some people don't praise the product. Yes I personally found it "not good enough" quite simply and nor the service or communication. That's up to you to improve, not us. We are not paying for your R&D or market research. We are filmmakers who just want to get the look of anamorphic.

    I was interested like many in the FM, willing to take the time to explore it. That you on your part and at the Anamorphic Shop in Latvia didn't bother to provide the full kit, speaks poorly of the service aspect. If you can't even service EOSHD, what hope does a 'normal' customer have?

    ​Andrew let me just say last thing and then I shut myself forever on this matter, I respect your opinion, but you have to respect mine too and the members following this thread like you said. I think we could have avoided all this misunderstanding if only you and I would have communicated more through emails. I personally don't understand why you have been so negative towards the FM when you had it like you said plonked on your desk. A normal customer gets his information before buying the FM, they don't just wake up and buy the stuff, you as professional should have been informed more than a normal customer.

    Bloody hell, it's on your blog and you don't know nothing about it, even my kid knows that the FM works straight out the box with the schneider cinelux  and the Isco Ultra Star. We thought that you as a professional filmmaker wouldn't had any problem to get the right anamorphic to work straight away with the FM, that's all. If you are so concerned about the filmmakers let them give their feedback. Nobody is asking you to praise the stuff, and I haven't treated your blog as a market. 

    Thanks Andrew, and by the way the guys are from Lithuania and my name is spelled Cosimo.


  3. The thread stays.

    ​I see, the thread stays, , you just said the FM is not worth it,  it's almost shit and we deceived you, what's to point to keep it anyway?

    Ohhhhh!!!!! Ok,  I see it, you don't want anyone else to be deceived by this shit single focus adapter like the FM, cos your last word to me is more important than anyone else here who followed and discussed on this thread and bought the FM and  enjoyed it. 




  4. I'll return the lens. It's not worth the trouble.

    ​Thank you Andrew, and very sorry if we did waste your time.  I will take the blame for all this , yes you are right I should have followed you and inform you more on this. Can I please ask you  a personal favor, could you or any other moderator eliminate the whole FM lounge thread please?  I am tired of this arguing over stupid stuff. Please I will appreciate it if you do.

    Thanks very much and do forgive me if I troubled you again with all this.



  5. An update from me on the FM!

    A demo unit arrived a week or so ago, and I was lead to believe by Cosimo all along it would work with my Kowa 16H / 8Z. Actually the Kowa needs to be dismantled to fit as Hans Punk showed.

    I hadn't realised this and didn't want to risk my Kowa, so I asked Anamorphic Shop for a loan of the right anamorphic to use with the FM so we could do the review. Unfortunately I got a sharp reply back with nothing but a return postal address to send back the FM.

    So unfortunately there will be no review and no footage from me.

    ​Hi Andrew, I am writing just to clear everything out and let all the members know what really happened.

    Your demo unit arrived on the 7th of february , 3 week ago, I've never led you on anyone else to believe that the Kowa would fit inside the FM  without the need of DIY hacking and I have proofs of that. I have wrote you on the 20th of january explaining which anamorphic would fit inside the FM see the attachment file.

    When you received your demo unit you wrote me asking for instructions on how to fit your kowa cos you couldn't figure out, remember that?

    I then wrote you straight away again explaining you that you would need to disassemble your focus gear in order to fit your kowa inside the FM, and that the FM was created for the Schneider cinelux, the Isco Ulrtra star in mind,  and I will attach my mails so that everyone can read that I always informed you without misleading you. 

    It's not my fault if you don't read your mails, I understand that you may have been busy and missed my mails and I am very sorry that this happened as I was keen to read your review and as you know I always wanted that.

    As for the sharp reply you have received from the anamorphic shop guy I wrote you another mail  only last night as I was busy working, saying that words can be misinterpreted, and he didn't mean to be sharp to you, he only answered in a very simple and honest way to your question Either you can loan me an anamorphic to use it with, or I can return it."

    The guy asked you to return it  as it was too late now to have a review and gave you his address, that's all, no need to get upset and make believe everyone that it's my fault. 

    I hope you understand my point,  and please do not misinterpreter my post too, thank you.

    Here are my mails that you didn't read:

  6. Hi John.


    Please now limit the bumping of this thread until you have some photos of physical finished items as well as test material showing the finished units in action.  3d renders don't need to be recycled any more now.  We all know what they look like.  we now need to see the sustenance from the actual units for sale here.  

    ​looks like my friend John is addicted to the bumping, see what Andrew Reid wrote a while a go he has been warned several times.

  7. Has nobody tried it with the Proskar-16 anamorphic yet?

     Just a quick video test to show the FM with the Proskar, some of the shots have been taken during the day between f8 and f11 without an ND filter, that's why you see some vignetting. I am aware of that the Proskar is not 100% aligned.
