  1. If you are looking for anamorphic lenses - you already know this is the holy grail of them all. Covers full frame at 50mm and 100% rack focusable.   Mint condition with both front and rear caps. Includes it's original 50mm f/2.8 taking lens in Nikon mount. This is the original 1968 single coated version.   I am willing to sell it for $x,xxxx.xx cash meetup at a local NYC bank or trade for some 8mm anamorphics + cash on your end. I'd also consider a deal for a 35mm OCT-19 LOMO squarefront in mint shape.   Thanks for your time.
  2. Shot some small tests with the Iscorama on my d800 last week. Shot on D800 with the nikon 50mm 1.4D and Tokina +0.4 diopter and Hoya +1 diopter. I did the edit in premiere, grading in speed grade and second grade in nuke using some custom grading filters I made using filters from on set.   My site www.robbannister.com   Downloads page http://www.robbannister.com/downloads/   videos CC1 http://vimeo.com/64450588   CC2 http://vimeo.com/64464863   Hopefully I'll have some stuff really worth showing soon.   Rob
  3. Hi Guys! Hey Andrew!    Nice to finally be on EOSHD.    I'm from Sydney, Australia and this is my first post! So we'll see how this goes.    This is my first music video shot on a anamorphic lens (KOWA B&H).   Any constructive feedback, criticism, tips, advice etc or just a chat is welcome and appreciated!    Would be cool to our share knowledge and experiences from all over the world.   Hope you like the video (and hopefully the music aswell loll).   Lana Lyric - S.W.A.G.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzVw6ZcgwbM   Talk soon guys.   Ray Ayos. 
  4. Just another short shoot with the iscorama and D800. I used the hyperdeck shuttle 2 recording to DnxHD out of the hdmi port.   http://vimeo.com/64695364  
  5. Does anyone have any opinion on these Isco lenses that vid atlantic sells from their site.  Are they worth it?  I am so new to anamorphic that I am really just trying to gather as much information before I make a purchase.  I am shooting with a 5D Mk III and so I am really looking for the right adapter to fit what I have.   http://www.vid-atlantic.com/lensshop.html
  6. Here is my latest music video:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw8NaQqBI3I   Only the beginning and end sections were shot anamorphically.  The green screened elements were shot with spherical lenses.
  7. I visit my brother, niece and sister in law, and I met in Toulouse Olivier, a anamorphic lenses collector. He lent me for this week end one of his Iscorama. It was the first and hope not the last time that I have this lens in my hand. It's working very well, sharp, and usable for closed shots without a diopter.   <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/61965327" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/61965327"     GH3 AVCHD 1080 50P natural mode 1080 50P Iscorama non MC 1.5X version, apparently more 1.4X, that what I've done on post Yashica 55mm f2 Contax mount light craft ND variable filter Tokina 0.5 diopter here is a face to face Iscorama / baby Hypergonar : vimeo.com/61788864

Hello everyone, here is a quick and non scientific comparison between the Iscorama 1.33X very rare version (taht I have just for this past week end) and my baby hypergonar 1.75X.     <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/61788864" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/61788864" Iscorama 36 non MC 1.33X version Pentax Takumar 55mm f2 Pentax mount   VS    baby Berthiot Hypergonar   1.75X version   Contax Zeiss Planar 45mm f2 Contax G mount   on GH3 natural mode 1080 50P light craft ND variable filter Tokina 0.5 diopter
  9. Hello fellow lens gurus, I've been looking to buy some kind of start lens, to what will hopefully soon be my anamorphic lens collection. I tired to buy a set of oct-19 lomos over the summer but was endlessly outbid. I'm a canon 5dmk3 and canon l series glass owner, and have wanted to adapt or better yet, actually own anamorphic primes that work on a full frame sensor without dual focusing or piggybacking lens together. I found this on eBay today but don't know much about this lens other than its a later isco and is multi coated. The nice thing seems to be that it already is equipt with and canon lens mount, but I'm not sure if this 50mm lens will cover the full frame sensor on the 5d3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/130864721991?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Take a look and let me know your thoughts before I consider plopping down 2gs. Thanks for your help as always guys!!
  10. Hi everyone    I´m a young video director from Madrid-spain, (www.MauriDGaliano.com)   I want to share with this great community my passion for  vintage Anamorphic Lenses.   I´ve been reading this forum a lot of times, but is the first time that i write something.   Allow me the honor to share my last Anamorphic video, a Drum cover for the Artist "Deivhook",the best Drummer in Spain.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13zPG1ebHlo     I shoot this video with my basic set: Panasonic GH2 Flowmotion v2.2 + fd50mm 1.8 + Bolex Anamorphot 16/32 1.5x.   The Bolex is the little girl of all my lenses...the "jewel of the crown",   The  rare 1.5x ratio suits perfect for almost everything, and its super-easy to make the double focus with it, in this video theres no flares, but this lens have the best flares  i´ve seen. Flare sooo easy, blue-deeply flares like Panavision C series. Mindblowing.   Now i have a clamp, from VidAtlantic,but im interested in upgrade to Redstan, i´ve seen that redstan have a custom Clamp for the little brother of my lens, the 8/19 1.5x, And im asking myself if he has one custom clamp for my lens.   Someone can give me the contact of Redstan?   I hope that you enjoy the video!   If someone have a question about the lens, ask me!   PD: I already knows that i suck writing in english, sorry!
  11. Since I have all three at the moment, I decided to make a test for my fellow anamorphic enthusiasts:    http://vimeo.com/60401188   Not exactly scientific, but I tried to be methodical. The Iscorama is sharp wide open, but my Iscomorphot 2x has to be closed down to f/2.8 or smaller, and the Iscomorphot 1.5x really isn't too useful before f/5.6.   They each have their own unique character. Which image do you prefer?
  12. I shot this last summer with the Iscorama Cinegon in front of a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 pancake, as recommended by Andrew.  The lens is sharp and sturdy, but it doesn't flare nearly as much as other lenses I've paired the Isco with...   http://vimeo.com/56795354
  13. I'm learning filmmaking besides my fulltime job, and unfortunately I haven't found much time to edit the footage I shoot yet. I put up one short clip for a few friends to see though, so I thought I might share it with you guys as well.   https://vimeo.com/59350324     Sadly enough, I found out that the fine detail was lost and that the sand which is blowing around in the foreground was quite blocky when vimeo had recompressed it. The original footage looks a whole lot better. If you guys have any tips on how to get the best anamorphic footage possible on vimeo/youtube, I'd love to hear them. I'm wondering if a 2538x1080 source uploaded to vimeo would have resulted in better video than the 1280x544 video I uploaded...   Also, I'm quite happy about how nicely the D800 is handling the dynamic range in this shot. In the light where I shot this footage I know that my old Nikon D200 stills camera wouldn't have captured a still with this much dynamic range in it.
  14. Hello! I'm searching for the Iscorama focusable anamorphic 1.5x adapter. Is anyone have any suggestion now? Also I like Bolex Moller 16\35 1.5x. Wait for your answers! Thanks!
  15. Hello,   I search a Iscorama 36, 42, 54 or 8 x 1.5 Iscomorphot. This is often asked here, I'll try anyway. I would pay a price of € 1400. is that realistic? The lens may also have small errors, Cleaning Marks and so I do not think bad! Sorry for my English, I'm from Germany. Please, I'm looking for a long time afterwards!   Best Regard   Andreas Stenzel
  16. I'm currently use a canon 70-200 f4 with my iscorama 54 on my 5d mark II and it fits perfectly and allows me to zoom with the canon and focus with the isco.  I'm thinking about buying a BMCC and an not sure how to mirror this setup on that camera. I did look at the panasonic 35-100 f2.8 but its kinda pricey.   Also what is the widest lens that I can use on the BMCC with a iscorama 54? 28mm?     Any other suggestions?      Thanks Greg
  17. After months of testing, I finally made a short subject with my Iscorama Cinegon.    http://vimeo.com/55805847   "Death You're So Cold" by Warren Jackson Hearne & Le Leek Electrique.
  18. Hi, I just got an Iscorama 36 Nikon Mount and I was wondering what the best Nikon to EOS adapter for this lens?   Thanks!
  19. I'm on the hunt for an Iscorama 36 or 42. I have an original model Iscorama (serial number) and an Iscorama 54 to trade with if that is helpful (I'll obviously offer a good chunk of change along with either of those in exchange). I'm on a deadline to source these for an upcoming production, so I'm willing to pay a premium. Anyone interested please PM me.
  20. I just got an M42-mount Iscorama in the mail. Beautiful glass and I have not yet had a chance to shoot anything with it, but I already have some mechanical questions about it. I have never worked with one of these before and I don't want to force anything and damage the lens. First here are some pictures for context. This is not my lens, but mine is the same model: [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/gallery/album_14/gallery_18451_14_1333.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/gallery/album_14/gallery_18451_14_67878.jpg[/img] 1) I have not been able to detach the anamorphic adapter from the taking lens. How do I accomplish this? The pushable buttons highlighted in green can be pressed in and the adapter can be re-oriented (possibly refocusing the taking lens beneath?), but twisting it does not cause it to detach. Also, the conical ring below them rotates freely when I do this -- I would think that it would stay put so that I could unscrew the taking lens. 2) In the purple: Is there a way other than twisting to adjust this? Mine does not budge with twisting. Could it be stuck? 3) In the red: What is this for? It looks like it would take a lever for more torqued focusing like the Lomo square fronts, but that doesn't seem right here. Old-school mounting hole perhaps? Any insight would be much appreciated.
  21. I am looking for an Iscorama 36, no difference if it is single coated or multicoated version. I'd prefer to buy one within EU if possible (since that means less tolls for me), but buying from international sellers is not a problem either.
  22. I had nothing to do and was a little bit bored. There are countless flare-tests around - so here is mine: [url="https://vimeo.com/49508965"]https://vimeo.com/49508965[/url] (be warned: you could become easily bored)
  23. Just saw this Iscorama 54 on ebay. $2,000 starting bid. No bids so far. [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/200810742974?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649"]http://www.ebay.com/itm/200810742974?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649[/url]
  24. Hi I'm shooting a short over 4 days in England around October and looking to hire an Iscorama 36? The budget doesn't justify buying an Iscorama (plus they're a buggar to find!) Are there any owners in England who would rent their Isco 36 and clamp out to me? Also, out of curiosity, would people prefer the GH2 (Anamorphic hack with lomos?) setup or 7D (with Isco 36?) We have the option but can't find many good examples of the GH2 ana hack? Many thanks, James
