  1. Like to share this one shot acoustic Music Video I created for Arctic Chanteur, North Star Blues singer, ex Madrugada frontman Sivert Hoyem. Shot with a Kowa Anamorphic. Tokina Diopter. Redstan Clamp. Canon 50mm FD 1.2
  2. I made my first anamorphic purchase with a Kowa 16-H.  I am waiting for Redstan adapters and I wanted to get  some feedback on which taking lens would be ideal with my setup.   I've heard that anything below 80mm will vignetter due to the Kowa's 2x and the mk III sensor size.   For any mk ii / mk iii owners out there... what taking lenses are you using/recommend for your Kowa 2x?
  3. Hey guys,   Made up my mind to sell some of my gear. PM me if interested in any of the following.   Kowa 16H 2X anamorphic adapter - good condition Canon FD 20mm f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.2 lenses - all in good condition Canon FD to MFT adapter - new Slr Magic 12mm f1.6 - new Slr Magic 25mm f0.95 - new Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 - new   Thanks!
  4. The EosHD Anamorphic guide persuaded me to buy this lens so i see only fitting to post this here. So im auctioning off this Kowa Bell & Howell 2x anamorphic lens. If anybody is interested see the ebay listing below. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261379409543?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649#shpCntId Any questions are welcom. Thank you
  5. Hi! I have this anamorphic lens but I can't really know what it is exactly. Who can tell? It's exactly similar to a Kowa/Sankor/Singer 16D (and the "72mm Front Filter Ring" works on it), but it's only written on "Japan 2X anamorphic lens for BELL & HOWELL". Is it better or cheaper than the others Kowa/Sankor/Singer? My other question is: would it need an achromat or is it good enough to work "nude"? (I would like to try an "okina achromatic close up +0.4" with this anamo and have maybe a sharper image.) Would it work inevitably better with an Okina, or not? Thanks a lot!
  6. Simple, all-in-one lens kit for S35 and M43 sensors, I've shot many fun projects with this sharp and agreeable little setup. It's for sale now for anyone interested. Moving to SLR Magic Anamorphot soon. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks for looking! Click here for eBay auction, demo video in description.
  7. A Day at the Zoo with a Kowa Prominar 16-D in front of a Nikon (e) 50mm f/1.8 using the Redstan clamp.
  8. Hi there, I have just got a Kowa 16D over the weekend. I am completely new to this and I have read on this forum and elsewhere, but I am not sure yet of what lens and clamps are best. Apparently, the Kowa 16D is not the same as the 8Z, as they say here. I have seen that in a lot of videos people is using the Helios 44 with Redstan Clamps. Is this the best for the Kowa 16D? I have also seen that some guys are using the Nikon 50mm. I have got a Panasonic GH2 with a SLR Magic 25mm T0.95. So I believe I will need to buy a lens anyway. I would like to also add some diopters as well. If you guys have some suggestions, I will very much appreciate any comments. Thank you PS: I am at work and I have the lens at home, so I will post some pictures later.
  9. Hello, I've been traveling since may 2013, and making travel videos with my gh3 and a ts3cine highspeed camera. I was inspired by EOSHD to try out an anamorphic lens. Having blown my budget on gear before i left, I was looking for something on the cheap. I managed to grab a Bell & Howell Kowa 2x from ebay for $340. I had it sent to my mom and she met me in Bangkok. So here is the first stuff I have shot with a anamorphic. Run and gun with a dual focus anamorphic, not the easiest..... If you like please check out my vimeo page for lots of other travel videos.... Thanks, James
  10. Hi anamorphic lens buffs,   I've just purchased a GH3 and want to get involved in the wonderful world of anamorphic lenses... but after extensive reading and looking on ebay, I'm confused. Apologies if some of my questions are idiotic.   It seems the consensus is that iscorama is the best - but with none currently on ebay I can't find how much one should be. How much should a 36 go for, or a 54, and where might I source one?   What are the Isco Optic Ultra / blue star? Are these related to the iscorama? Some on ebay are labelled Isco Iscorama - is it the same company? Are these wrongly labelled? Here is an example of one:   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Anamorphic-Lens-RARE-Isco-Iscorama-2x-MINT-DSLR-GH3-GH2-5D-Canon-COMPACT-Sharp-/171168616302?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item27da71cf6e   Also many of the pictures of the lens have a ruler showing how long they are. How does the length affect them?    This one for example (though it has no ruler) is marked as 120mm. What does that refer to?   http://www.ebay.com/itm/isco-optic-120mm-with-schneider-super-cinelux-anamorphic-lens-/121211839272   One of my main concerns is getting a lens which will fit over my taking lenses. I have a Voightlander 35mm (which has a 52mm thread), which should be fine... I'm assuming I'd struggle to use my Rokinon 24mm, which has a lens circumference of 77mm, both because it is so wide at the front, but also cause it would vignette badly.   On the GH3 the 35mm lens becomes roughly a 70mm. With the anamorphic adaptor, does it effectively become a 35mm again?   Please could people give me their opinions of the following choices, and their pros and cons? They vary a lot in price and size.    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kowa-Bell-and-Howell-2x-Anamorphic-Lens-Perfect-Condition-w-Lens-caps-RARE-/181235078150?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item2a3273d406   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bausch-and-Lomb-Anamorphic-Lens-2x-Cinemascope-lens-holder-for-15mm-rods-/231089701199?pt=UK_Lenses_Filters_Lenses&hash=item35ce05014f   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Isco-Optic-Ultra-MC-2x-35mm-Anamorphic-Cinemascope-lens-DSLR-Micro-4-3-/121210681244   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SANKOR-ANAMORPHIC-16C-16mm-WIDE-PROJECTION-LENS-/221311304014   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KOWA-16mm-Prominar-Anamorphic-16-H-LENS-52030-/281127357879?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41747f0db7     I'm also interested in the SLR Magic anamorphic. Does anyone know when that will be available to buy?   Lastly, people seem to recommend the  Helios 44mm a lot. Why is this?   If it makes a difference to my choice, I think I prefer blue flares over brown, and the nearest focal distance the better... I guess thats what everyone wants!    Thanks for reading my rather long post! All advice gratefully received.   Many thanks all,   Jules

  15. Hi, All!   Just thought I'd share some color grading that I've been fiddling with. I shot a bunch of footage at the local carnival a month back, and now I'm working on grading it for one of my personal music video projects.    I've used my own take on a bleach bypass process that simultaneously adds the teeniest touch of blue to the lows, then with a couple more nodes, I've tweaked exposure and of course that nasty red/orange/yellow/green zone of color that seems to always make or break skintones has had some subtle adjustments.   Lemme know what you think!   http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157634804640007/with/9375308962/  
  16. Hey guys,   Made up my mind to sell some of my gear. PM me if interested in any of the following.   Kowa 16H 2X anamorphic adapter - good condition Canon FD 20mm f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.2 lenses - all in good condition Canon FD to MFT adapter - new Slr Magic 12mm f1.6 - new Slr Magic 25mm f0.95 - new Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 - new   Thanks!
  17. Here are some stills from footage I shot this evening. I'll probably use it in the music visual for a song that I am writing.   Shot on GH2 with Driftwood's Moon T5 patch, through a Kowa 16-H, Tokina ATX 0.4 diopter and a Konica Hexanon 40mm, mostly wide open at f1.8.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157634273204895  
  18. http://vimeo.com/68443110   This is my new graphic, in animated form. I created and animated it in PowerPoint (I've been animating in PowerPoint since elementary school). I then played the animation on my Dell 30" monitor and recorded the monitor with my GH2, Kowa anamorphic, Konica AR 40mm and Tokina diopter all on a tripod. Then I moved the monitor out of the scene and recorded various flares with a flashlight. Brought it all together in Final Cut Pro, set the flares as additive layers, and added some grain overlay effect. I think the outcome is something clean-cut but with a dash of organic mojo that is difficult to achieve with an all-digital animation. There's no faking those real flares!        
  19. Like to share this short film which is part of a larger project. Shot with GH3, slrmagic 35mm and Kowa 8Z. https://vimeo.com/65543988  
  20. Just put my Elmoscope II up for auction:     http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300905958653   The Elmoscope II is a rebranded Kowa 8z /16H.   Here is a sample video I shot with this lens of me bleaching polaroids,... thought it'd be more interesting than random trees an' shit,... not that there's anything wrong with random trees an' shit,....   This is straight out of the camera,  filmed with the Elmoscope II on a Contax Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.4 set between f2.8 - 5.6, on a Lumix GH2 with the Valkyrie TZ3 Beta2 patch. 100% manual of course. No color correction/ adjustments / leveling / grading / fx other than unsqueezing in post.   http://youtu.be/K8PWJ5XSCVE   more details in the listing, but if you guys have any questions fire away :)   cheers.  
  21. I own the Kowa 16H, which I have recently received and tested with both a Red Epic, a BMCC and a set of Nikon Ai-S lenses. I found that the amount of barrel reflection on heavy flares caused a very strong yellow vignette. I thought it was my particular Kowa, but then I see the same on several Kowa B&H shots. I have now seen this on all sorts of light from sun light to LED to sodium vapor to fluorescent, from medium taking lenses to tele end. I also hear it is common on other anamorphics.   Is this a known issue, is there anything that can be done about it? Does it happen more to some lenses than others or is it inherent to the design of the anamorphic adapter? It does not seem to happen on an Optex lens I've borrowed. I've spoken to two lens technicians who say it is either the design or the lack of blacking on the edges of the front element (?)   I would want to use my Kowa but find the usefulness limited with these vignettes occurring anytime it flares. One thing that comes to mind is to try and add a vignette of my own in post to hide the yellow vignette, but may look to obvious. Will need to do some testing with it.   I will shoot some examples with my lens today as I don't want to offend anyone else by posting their samples.   Would like to get some feedback from people if they have seen this happen and if they have any solutions?   One other forum member mentioned he got this with his anamorphic, and he could reduce (but not eliminate) the vignette with a mattebox.     
  22. 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. 
  23. Hello all this is my first post/comment. I've come into a Sankor 16-D, a Kowa Prominar 16-S and an Eiki 16C and I'm trying to get any and all information I can on how to get the most out of them. I'm shooting with a Panasonic GH2. I haven't picked up a prime lens to use with any of them as I'm not quite sure of the best one (or ones). I have picked up the Anamorphic Shooters Guide (2nd Edition) from EOSHD so I have some small idea. (I don't think any of these are actually listed in that guide though.)   Any advice would be helpful, which is lens is best, reliable and affordable adapters, best taking lenses, anything. I'm having trouble finding info on the internet but maybe there is a forum or guide that would be helpful somewhere I haven't looked.   Anyway, thanks and I'm looking forward to whatever help you all can offer.   ktrufant
  24. Hello, I'm new to this forum and lately got a wonderful Kowa Prominar Anamorphic 16-H lens for my 5D MKII. For attachment I'm looking for the front and back clamps of the famous redstan brand. I contacted the manufacturer several times via ebay and his website, but alas, until now, without any success. Any help and tips on this matter are kindly appreciated. Thanks for any advice in advance! Kind regards.
  25. Like to share this moody short film I created. Used GH3, Kowa 8Z and SLR Magic 35mm. https://vimeo.com/64129362
