  2. Hey everyone!
    I've been using a cheap lens support I bought off ebay but it is very short and only just reaches my clamp on my Kowa 16-H.
    It's super annoying when changing lenses and I really need to look for a better rock solid solution.

    I'd love to see what everyone is using in terms of lens supports and maybe look into getting a clamp+support combo.

    Thanks so much!

  3. Hey there.

    As per the title, I am looking to buy a Hardcore DNA but will also consider Core DNA if the price is right.
    I'm based in Australia but happy to pay for postage from another country. 

    Let me know if you have one that you'd like to part with.


  4. I found a small thread that briefly talked about this but it didn't hold any answers so i thought i'd make a new thread.
    I'm just wondering what everyone's experiences are with Ibis while shooting anamorphic. 
    I got to test out my Kowa 16-H yesterday coupled with a voigtlander 75mm 2.5 on my a7sii and noticed some weird little wobbles in the footage. I was shooting 4k and had Ibis turned on and set to my taking lens focal length, however now i'm thinking I should have either had it completely off or set to half the taking length focal length considering I was shooting at 2x squeeze.
    Have any of you more experienced shooters encountered this, any ideas on how to address it?

    If you're only going to use that clamp on the 16H, the Raf is a much better option.

    They conveniently just sold out last night! haha so frustrating.
    I've emailed them to see when they'll be getting more but if it's a bit of a wait I'm just going to get the rapido, they look really nice.

    One thing that Rapido Clamp different from other clamps, is that Rapido clamp can be reused for different combination of anamorphic lens & taking lens, just get a new step down ring (10$-15$) for connecting to the anamorphic lens, and a step up ring (5$) for connecting to a different taking lens.

    Say, you have KOWA-16H, then the step down ring is part 0115 over here: http://www.rapidotechnology.com/products-services/customized-step-up-down-rings/adapter-for-kowa-lens/kowa-8z-16h, but if you have KOWA for B&H, you only need to get a new step down ring (part 0100) over here: http://www.rapidotechnology.com/products-services/customized-step-up-down-rings/adapter-for-kowa-lens/kowa-for-bell-howell, then you are good to go, no need to purchase a new clamp. So if you plan to invest in anamorphic shooting, Rapido clamp is future proof, and that's all the reason why I develop these clamps, cause I collect more than 50 anamorphic lenses, and they are all different from each other. See the list of Rapido clamp supported anamorphic lenses: http://www.rapidotechnology.com/products-services/customized-step-up-down-rings

    Btw, if you have larger anamorphic lens, needs rail support, you can check my V2 clamp, which has additional features comparing to V1 clamp: http://www.rapidotechnology.com/products-services/rapido-anamorphic-lens-clamps-with-rail-support








    Thanks for the info Jim! definately sounds like a great product.
    The fact you can use the same clamp on all different lenses is pretty neat.
    I'll definitely be getting one if I continue to buy and shoot with more anamorphics.
    It's looking like a pretty good option for the price for me at the moment.

    I don't know if you've seen but Raf actually makes a 16-H clamp now that is exactly the same as a Redstan (but costs a 1/4 the price).

    Ooo this one? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/141997441693?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649
    Very tempting since I only own one anamorphic at the moment and am pretty keen on just grabbing something on the cheaper side that is still going to be decent quality but at only $15 more i think i'll probably just grab the rapido.

    Thanks for everyones opinions and suggestions, greatly appreciated.
    It's a bit daunting getting into anamorphic shooting but this forum has made it that much easier. 

  7. Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I just checked out Rapido and they look great although based off this page: http://www.rapidotechnology.com/products-services/customized-step-up-down-rings/adapter-for-kowa-lens/kowa-8z-16h to buy the components to mount a helios 44 to the Kowa 16-H i'm looking at $60USD which for me is $79AUD.

    I compared it to the price of the two part clamp by Redstan: http://www.redstan.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=33&product_id=70 which costs 55 pounds, or $88AUD.... plus the step ring off ebay ($2), I'm thinking it's probably worth the extra $11 to get the redstan. 

    Or am I missing something?

  8. I managed to pick up my first anamorphic adapter for $650AUD, a Kowa Prominar 16-H and i've been looking at some of the clamp options.

    From what i've read, the Redstan adapters sound really solid but I'm wondering if many people have tried any slightly cheaper alternatives such as the clamps from Rafcamera? 

    I've also got some rods and would love to know if anyone has any cheap support options?

    To be honest, no...you should be able to find a clean one for the same kind of money. Just wait a little or ask around in the 'anamorphic shooters' Group on Facebook if anyone has something to sell.

    Thanks for your input. 
    After further research i've decided to keep my eye out for an Elmoscope-II or a Kowa 16-H.
    Can't wait to start experimenting!
