valery akos reacted to ed.ge in Hypergonar HI-FI 2 disassembly instructions needed
Have a tiny fungal speck I need to clean on the inside of the cylindrical element but I have hard time taking the lens apart. I have disassembled different other models apart...with no problems but this one seem to be a bit stubborn.
Can anyone provide me with a detailed disassembly instructions either by text or video tutorial? I have looked on the net, can't seem to find anything. Greatly appreciated.

valery akos reacted to Timotheus in Looking to build an anamorphic 1.33x for Fuji
The obvious and widely available option with those lenses would be the SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 1.33x. On the 35mm you could probably also get away with the SLR Magic Compact Anamorphot-40. Beware of the heavy blue flaring. Sharpness gets nice from F4 and up. Vintage (more pricey, rare) options would include LA7200 and Century WS-13. Check out Tito Ferradans' Youtube reviews for all the aforementioned.
Current high-end option would be the Letus Anamorphx http://www.letus35.com/letus-anamorphx-pro-1-3x-adapter/

First test with the new Aivascope!
I was lent the new Aivascope for a bit to test it out. It was purported be be much sharper and better at fast apertures than the old one. And as you can see in the video above, that is VERY true. It gave me a chance to try one of my new favorite lenses, the Voightlander 40mm f/1.4 Leica M mount lens. The whole video was shot at f/1.4 and around ISO 800 pretty much. There might be a few shots at ISO 400 or f/2.0. The area of Tokyo we were in was very bright and had lots of lights. The Aivascope handled everything, especially the closeups, very well. The only issues I had were some flare ghosting by the B&H Focuser I thew together and a few shots where I forgot to turn off digital stabilization. It’s not bad overall and I’m still happy with the video. It really shows what the new Aivascope can do. It doesn’t flare like the old one, but you still get some nice ones in the right light. The only thing I’m not sure sure about is the “D” bokeh, but it could grow on me.

valery akos reacted to rommex in Freebie: Director's Viewfinder app for iPhone / iPad
I developed a free director's viewfinder app for iPhones / iPad (poor man's Artemis? ? )
The suported cameras are ARRI, Red, Blackmagic, Sony, etc.
It lets you see exact framing for your favorite camera just where you stand with an iPhone in your hand.
So you can plan your next shoot on location even if you don't have a camera or a lens with you.
The app features support for:
- optical adapters (boosters)
- anamorphic lenses
- LUTs (M31, Teal+Orange, etc)
- frame guides
The app has ads but I tried to make them non-intrusive. Besides, you can turn them off.
Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.

you're asking way to much for a kit that costs no more than $1500 bro...
valery akos reacted to whoisjsd in Advice on eBay anamorphic lens listing (No advertising)
First off... no. I have not seen a red Ultra Star for under $300 in YEARS that was usable quality. They were always higher that the regular ones.
Second, everything you see for sale now or that has sold in the past few months in that price range are just regular projection lenses. A few gold anamorphic ones have sold for decent prices. SEVERAL Red Stars have sold for $500+ in new condition.
If anybody asked me, a fair price for a red one is $300. If you can get it for less, get it if the quality is there. Anamorphic projection lens prices have been skyrocketing everywhere, whether you like it or not.

I saw this lens in this Forum a while ago, then somehow I won it from Ebay. I got a really good deal, and I believe it is because no one able to figure out how to mount it and make it work. It is hard but I finally figure out a proper way to build a rig for it and it work perfectly. And this lens is crazy sharp!
