  1. Campaign for 24mm F2.8 will start soon. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sirui-24mm-anamorphic-lens/coming_soon Email sign up for notifications.
  2. I received both the 35mm and 50mm on Saturday. I'm surprised how solid and well built they feel. To make these lenses at this price point we need to thank the enormous advances in manufacturing that China has made over the last 20 years. The lenses are sharp, but with some strange breathing / distortion effects as you adjust focus. Setting aside the 1.33x squeeze, these lenses are basically like the Bausch & Lomb 'Block' CinemaScope lenses with synchronised focus introduced in 1954, but made with modern materials and manufacturing methods. http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/widescreen/wingcs

  4. Some of the greatest widescreen films ever made were shot with these lenses. They were directed by Hungarian Miklos Jancso, films like The Red and the White, The Round Up, Silence and Cry, and Winter Wind. The last of these is just 12 long takes for the entire 80 minute movie.
  5. Hi all, As the title says, does anyone have any recommendations for cheap on camera monitor, that can unsqueeze a 2X anamorphic image? It would be good if it has some focus assist functions too, and works on its own battery power. Any suggestions?
  6. Great thank you for sharing your experience. I have read about 7 pages of threads in this forum, but this is still a confusing topic.
  7. Whoops. I did meant the G7. So does SLR Magic sell the Anamorphot 40 Compact with the Rangefinder? Or would i have to buy that separately? How does your set up work? Do you have to do double focusing?
  8. I'm considering a cheap anamorphic set up. Does anyone know if the following work together? Panasonic GH7 Panasonic Lumix 25mm F1.7 Lens SLR Magic 1.33 40 Anamorphot with built in Rangefinder What else do I need? Step up rings so that I can attach the Anamorphot to the Panasonic lens? What other lens options should I consider? Panasonic Lumix 20mm pancake lens here: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/986097-REG/panasonic_h_h020ak_lumix_20mm_f1_7_ii_asph.html Is this preferable to the 25mm because it is flater? What if I bought a vintage Canon lens with man
