    By macro lenses you mean diopters, right?
    You don't need any fancy step-down ring, any will do. Most of my rings come from RISE (UK).

    But your ISCO has no threads in front, how are you going to attach the step-down ring?

     

    RE: lifting plate - there is nothing you could buy to fix it. To make it work exactly like you want to, you'll need to make it DIY style.

    Yes I mean diopters but those cheap ones are often called macro lenses like from Polaroid which cost 20€ 4 diopters from +1 to +10 

    The Isco has a Front thread but there is a Ring screwed in which tightens the Front Glass. I thought I could use a stepdownring instead of the Ring which tightens the Glass and enables me to use diopters

     

    I will Look at RISE later - thanks a lot!


  2. By the way my (final) Setup for about 200$. 

    Heavy but OK for the First try.

    Any recommendations for 86mm stepdown Rings to add macro lenses at the Front? - i didn't find any.

    I'm searching as well for a lifting plate or something like that to get the camera on the exact hight of the projector lens.

    welcome to the rabbit hole,  how deep it goes is up to you. I think quite few people jump the gun on these bigger projector lenses without doing alot of homework first. I know i did  😁

    While cheap initially making it more practical gets expensive  fast. Still with a clamp and lens support you can at least wet your feet in anamorphics

    its not a fail, its just more challenging to utilize properly. Some would call it character building 😉 If you persevere you can pat yourself on the back as its not a path many will travel. If nothing else attach it to a camera and stick it on a shelf, great conversation starter or resell on ebay to the next newbie anamorphic adoptee.

    with the sirui anamorphic coming out and if it does well i'd expect projection lenses to take a hit  as its so much easier just to buy a complete unit rather than cobble something together which is good for mft and probably full frame further down the road

    You're absolutely right. I bought a SmallRig for 65$ with lens support and quick release which will be delivered soon. Maybe looking for macro filters and front filter mount in the near future to get the focus distance closer and building the "CHARACTER"  😁


  4. okay haha think I was too enthusiastic that I found such a cheap ISCO. 

    funny thing is that I can resell it more expensive - some iscos here in germany (the same huge model) go for 299$ !

    I've got a mft camera so vignetting won´t be too bad and I also thought diopters were easy to find and I didn't mind that much about the focus distance because it was only 120$ - totally failed

    Thanks for your help!
