  1. ​ Hi Joedal ​I have both and can tell you that they are pretty similar in terms of performance. I haven't noticed any difference in the close focusing distance but if I get a chance I will do a test and find out. In terms of scratching the inside of the FM, the metal hood is right on the edge and protected by an edge within the FM module. I would say that my v1 is a lot sharper and has a smoother action than my flat fronted Schneider but I have put this down to how the lenses have been cared for.
  2. Thanks anti12 I have had a good look at the items you mention and I can see why you have recommended them. I am looking for something like this to be honest (hopefully there is an image below, it crashed the forum when I tried yesterday!!) So I can see that the FOTGA support system with adjustable camera mount is right, I will have to swap out those cheap looking blue tightening screws though.
  3. Thanks Chris. Wow, rigs are a big thing! After some research I have narrowed it down to these two components. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AZFJRYU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AHZUEEDVWE16K http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00R7DVC3W/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AHZUEEDVWE16K I am hoping that this is enough for now. I love the idea of a custom follow focus and viewfinder/Atomos setup at some point but for now I am looking for the minimum equipment necessary in order to attach the FM module and a monopod. Does this look like it would be enough? Thanks in advance.
  4. OK Chris, I am now laughing at myself. Today I have bought a cinelux, the FM, an olympus 100mm, an om EF adapter and am now I am trying to work out how to build a support rig. I used to go out on Fridays... At which point do I tell the bank to put me on a watch list? There is help, at lensaddicts.com... funded by the lens foundation...
  5. Hans the mans. You win... I bow down to thee, you have obviously spent too much time with lego. https://www.flickr.com/photos/129041403@N06/16309608396/in/photostream/ ps. I was a bidder on the inflight anamorphic 1.75 a few months ago, it was just after watching 2001 and watching your amazing fog video.
  6. ​Thank you Kris, may I call you Kris? I have moved fast... An Olympus OM System Zuiko AUTO-T 100mm f/2.8 lens is now mine, just the rails to sort out.
  7. ​Aaaaarp! Thanks Hans! I have just finished reading another post on this great forum that said the same thing, about f2.8 and 85mm so I am going to take that as golden and start honing my eBay skills once more. I am using ML also so your advice on this is welcome too. I look forward to trying it all out and posting some footage of our great city on this thread. Just one more thing... Do I need to start looking for clamps to attach everything together still? i.e. the Redstan clamps, and do you have to always have the lenses on rails?
  8. ​It looks like I might have just bought the last one... Oh no, there is another last one... No harm, I have been staring at anamorphic lenses on ebay for months, yesterday I stumble across the FM adapter and bang my paypal finger goes crazy. Very much looking forward to testing out the Cinelux with a 5D3, any tips on which focusing lens to buy? By that I mean the one that goes between the anamorphic lens and the camera, you do need that still I assume?
