  1. Hi, Looking to buy a single focus Anamorphic Lens adapter. Preferably Century Optics with either 52mm or 58mm rear thread. Will consider other 1.33x adapters. US, UK or Europe. Must be in good optical/mechanical condition. Please PM me if you have one. Cash/Paypal ready. Cheers. B.
  2. The lens is very lightweight, weights around 130g. This is a single focus lens, which means you only have to focus your taking lens. I used only two times, the lens are as new. If filming to a 16:9 sensor, your final aspect ratio will be 2.35:1. The rear thread is 52mm, you can use step up/down rings to attach it to your taking lens. The lens got great lens flares! This is one of the widest anamorphic lens, you can use it from 35mm. The lens also have it's downsides, for example chromatic aberration is present (like on all 1.33x lenses). You can view it on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182306899355?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  3. Pristine Kowa Prominar 16D for sale, dropped my price from $300 to $250, check out the listing if interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kowa-Prominar-16D-Anamorphic-Lens-/301995262227?
  4. I'm selling my Dog Schidt Optiks Flare Factory 58 with the ff38 wide angle attachment. They are really great lenses but I'm just reassessing my kit and they seem surplus to requirements, and I need the money for other stuff. I've only used the ff58 about three times in the last year, and the ff38 I've just received and haven't actually used it, so it's brand new. The FF58 was custom made to order with the following specs: -Variable Circular Aperture ƒ2 - ƒ16 - An amber/magenta High Prominence Tint for flaring - Contrast = Lower - Element Separation - Brushed Metal finish I'm looking for somewhere in region of £500. I'm based in London so local pick up much preferred but can send elsewhere if buyer is willing to cover costs. Here's some pcitures as well examples shots of flare and bokeh - ignore the horse mask!
  5. Hey Guys! I wanted to show you a short film I shot on the Sony A6000. A great video camera on a budget in my opinion It is my first short film, and it was all shot and edited in one day, I didnt have more time. Lenses I used were the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8, Helios 44-2 and a cctv 35mm 1.7 Hope you Guys enjoy it ! Please let me know what you think about it I shot it for the Sony professional competition, so if you enjoy it, please like it on youtube. thanks !! Cheers from Germany Micha
  6. I am looking to build a lens set for my BMCC MFT that has the following characteristics; High contrast Lots of color saturation I have tried some lens like; Canon FD - beautiful creamy look Sigma Art Lens 18-35mm - great low light and sharp but sort of sterile Some Rokinons - I am sort of leaning back towards these SLR Magic 12mm - great lens I use it for low light and wide angle but I am not sure what its characteristics really are. I am really going for a warm skin tone, high contrast, HDR look, lots of color saturation almost to a comic book level, very much like from this fight scene www.anyclip.com/movies/doa-dead-or-alive/women-fighting-in-rain/ I know most the heavy lifting would be done in post but I need to commit in general to a lens set. What about Angenieux and certainly these looks tempting https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/665053329/veydra-m4-3-cinema-lenses-for-gh4-and-bmpcc The trouble I am having is that people seem to love the desaturated look so it has been very hard to make a decision from other peoples footage. I know renting the lens would also be a good idea. I own the Sigma 18-35 and the SLR Magic 12mm so it would be great to stay within those but since I am posting this I guess that means I am not entirely sold. Thanks in advance for your input!
  7. Hey, Was wondering if anyone could give me a hand with this. I am totally new to this topic, I know absolutely nothing about it. I work for a local movie theater, and they had an old projector upstairs, with this lens attached to it. The manager said I could take it, so I figured I'd post online to find out more about it, and maybe see if it's worth anything. I had troubles uploading the pictures directly, so I hope linking is okay on this site. Lens is in good condition, just needs to be cleaned up. Hasn't been used in years. Thanks in advance. http://tinypic.com/r/2d94izn/8 http://tinypic.com/r/c3xja/8 http://tinypic.com/r/mv46zb/8 http://tinypic.com/r/w811jn/8
  8. Hi, I've got pretty nice lenses for my 5D Mark III. Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 USM Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 USM Since those lenses are made for fast autofocus operation for photography, the distance from the nearest focus point to infinity on the focus ring is quite short. This should make it harder to pull focus smoothly. Here is a short explaination:
  9. Hi, I would be hugely greatful if someone can offer me some advice on this lens and the problem i have with it. I have just recieved a Isco - Gottingen lens and the focus ring seems to be locked at 16m. I'm unable to focus and was hoping someone was able to inform me the correct way to be able to fix this, or inform me as to which sew to undo. Many thanks for you time :)
  10. Noktor asked me to test out their new SLR Magic Hyperprime 10mm T2.1 for MFT. Thought some people might interested to see footage, as lately most MFT tests are done on the GH4. Here's the video: It's a pretty good wide angle option for the non-Speedbooster folk. Thanks for watching!
  11. I have a question regarding the LA7200, basically in order to focus you would to move the back lens element or front. Would that be correct? Would it be possible to allow focus by adding another lens element behind the flat back lens element. Not sure how the image is presented by the square back of the LA7200. Im currently in the process of modifying it and frankensteining the lens with old junked vintage lenses to make it one whole lens that does not need a taking lens. Just want to make sure I have the physics right. Thanks in advance.
  12. I just got an A6000 and the SEL 35 1.8 lens. On some shots I occasionally see a very subtle ripple effect. I don't think it's caused by rolling shutter and sensor readout speed, it seems like it's optical to me. I say this because I haven't noticed rolling shutter when shooting with un-stabilised lenses. I had the optical steady shot on, and I wonder whether this is the culprit. I'll try to post a clip later, but I wondered whether anyone has had similar experiences either with this lens or other Sony OSS lenses?
  13. Testing the sharpness of the Rokinon Cine 85mm with Lens Turbo on the Pansonic GH4
  14. Comparing the complete set of Rokinon cine-style lenses at 4K
  15. Hello! I recently picked up a GH3 and am wondering what lens setup to purchase. I have done some research and am thinking about these two options. 1. Metabones Speedbooster with a Sigma 30mm 1.4 II (Nikon Mount) as I had the old Sigma 30mm 1.4 on my 550D and loved it! 2. Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 and the SLR Magic 12mm f1.6. Would love to know what you guys think! Thanks :)
  16. Hi all, I'm moving from the BMCC MFT to the Sony A7s. The BMCC all rigged up is just too much for me as a one man band, too heavy and too many pieces to put together and keep track on. The pay off (the image) is worth it, but I feel it's limiting me creatively in a bad way. I also want to get back into still photography (Never had full frame before, this should be interesting). That's also why I'm getting rid of my Nikon AI(s) primes. I want zooms. Not because they're better, but more convenient, I got more of a "on the go in available light" kind of style. Nikon mount is great with adapters thanks to a click-less aperture control, but it would be nice to have autofocus as well (apparently that's a no go with Nikon according to my googling and forum reading skills), but everything Canon leaves a bad taste in my mouth (well.. not really, I'm just as skeptical as any other DSLR shooter who started out on Canon and saw them staying behind on purpose). I haven't found a good affordable alternative to Metabones yet. Likewise with native Sony FE mount. Full frame also use all of the glass, so I'm being more careful about the quality in the edges this time, nothing I had to worry about before, really. For 1080 video I guess it's alright, not really noticeable, but when taking stills and maybe later 4K video... What is acceptable? Not asking for perfection, I got more of a "on the go in available light" kind of style. I really like to film/photograph people in their surroundings. Sláinte!
  17. Hello! I bough this Dylaiscope Junior 16 anamorphic projector lens from ebay last week for $51, I was very surprised No one ever out bid me. Optically it is in pretty good shape, some minor cosmetic scratches on the body. The main problem I have with it is the focus ring is fairly difficult to turn. I basically need to take it off the mount to set focus everytime because Im afraid I will put unneccesary stress on the lens and mount attached to the camera. I was just wondering if anyone has any experince or knowledge about lubricating lenses. I already know it is generally not a good idea for a non profession to take apart an anamorphic lens since all the elements need to stay perfectly alligned, but I was wondering if anyone knows the function of the 3 screws towards the back of the lens seen in the picture. I can sorta see a bar inside the lens that they seem to be holding. I have taken apart old Canon fd mount lenses before and reassembled with no issue but Im sure this is a bit more difficult. What would happen if I were to loosen those screws? It seems to me that this lens has probably been sitting somewhere for a very long time and the original lubricant has become less oily or something. I removed the face plate of the lens with all the writing on it and removed some of the grease and found it was a greenish shade, which I read from other forums is a type of grease known for sticking over time, not sure if it is the same grease used throughout the lens though. From what Ive read Dyaliscope lenses are of pretty good quality but havent been able to really find much about them. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.
  18. Hi guys. So let's say in theory if Metabones brought out a EF lens mount specifically for the GH4 with electronics, which I'm about to buy), and we lived in this universe.... I'm going to make the move from TV documentary editing/shooting into directing short films, more commercials, more music videos/ and a step up to a documentary DV director. That sort of thing. I'm planning on getting the GH4, with a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 as my first lens, as it is by all accounts a very high quality lens and would fit me perfectly for most situations. So... do I buy the GH4 with a speed booster with a nikon mount, and a nikon mount Sigma? Or do I wait for a possible soon to be released metabones speedbooster for the GH4, EF mount with electronics etc and a canon mount Sigma? I'd like your (much more knowledgable about DSLR's) guys opinions?! If I got the GH4, with a speed booster, which glass is the wise to invest in? I don't have a lot of money to spend on lenses in the near future, so I'd rather cheap quality glass in general. Canon/Nikon mounts? Which one in general is cheaper for a high level of quality? Which is just the best in general for someone like me? Who wants to start shooting low budget short films and features? Also what's the actual benefit of a EF mount with proper electronics? Does it just mean that I could use the autofocus feature on the GH4 with the Canon lenses? Any other benefits? Would it mean that lenses with image stabilisation would work on the canon lenses while on the GH4, and an imaginary speed booster which would allow such a thing?
  19. Hi guys, I've bought an Olympus OM10 film camera with a 50mm lens. Because I wanted a zoom lens to use with it I got through ebay a sigma 28-80mm f 3.5-4.5 UC zoom. I have just received the lens and I notice that sometimes half of the focus aim inside the viewer gets darker or black. If I'm not wrong it happend too with 50mm lens but then during my photoshots it never happened again. Does anybody knows why this happen?may it be because the camera had no film inside (I was just trying the lens) or because I was in a poor light environment? Thanks for everything guys!
  20. Hi I am planning on buying Rokinon/Samyang Cine lenses for my dslr, but as I was searching for a place to buy them, I saw a difference between the names of the same lense for example this two : 1) Rokinon 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC Cine lens 2) Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine lens So I searched and I saw that UMC referees to the coating and its seems to be different from the other one. And I don't know what IF stands for tough. So is different? Is the first one better than the other one? I also found a difference in the name between the Samyang ones and the Rokinon ones, which surprises me because they are supposed to be the same lenses, right? 3) Samyang 35mm T1.5 ED AS UMC 4) Rokinon 35mm T1.5 AS UMC So now I am even more confused because I don't know what ED stands for... Please help me out understanding this. Are they actually different? Or are they exactly the same lenses? Thanks :) PS: Sorry if I made a mistake in spelling, english is not my first language.
  21. I'm looking to learn how to fully clean/repair lenses more than simply puffing with a blower and wiping with a cloth... I have a bunch of old P entax SMC lenses that I don't mind pulling apart (two of them have a little fungus) and want to use them to practice repairing old manual primes. Unfortunately I can't find much online, nor any books on the topic. I have even tried to find information on specific lenses (Pentax, Nikkor etc.) but still nothing detailed. So essentially I am asking if anyone knows of books/websites etc. here I might be able to learn anything related to pulling lenses apart, cleaning/repairing them, and putting them back together again (all stages being vital!). I understand that this is as much a science as a skill, with precision and math being vital... but surely the talented folks repairing lenses haven't all learnt through apprenticeship? I've been pulling apart and re-assembling things since I was a kid (to various degrees of success), and sooner or later I'm just going to dive in... so please educate me before I make a mess!

    Cine lens

    Hi guys what is your thought on cine lenses which i don't know much about only that they are expensive like canon cine lenses but i am thinking of getting a set of Rokinon Thanks
  23. Hi everyone! This is a pretty old Canon FD lens that has been living in a loft for a while. Could you please have a look at the linked image and videos to see if you think these 'marks' are scratches or if it's actual lens fungus. The marks don't look particularly web-like.

  24. Hello, New to the anamorphic game, have some questions. Few pics of the Hypergonar HiFi2 on a 7D (BMPCC next up). So far the results have been very nice and love the flares, but we noticed this lens is a bit soft. We've tried adding 1", 2", 3" of space between the camera lens and anamorphic lens hoping to find the "focal point"... didn't notice any difference. Moving on, Stopping down at F5.6 - F11 has increased the sharpness, but not by much. I'm curious if anyone else has a quick fix or has played with the inner glass orientation ? Any info. is good info. :)
  25. Hey! Does anyone have a suggestion for a good film-look lens with Nikon mount which doesn't cost a thousand dollars? I'm not quite happy with my lenses so far concerning the sharpness and look, as most of them are photographic lenses. Zoom wouldn't be bad, but doesn't have to be. Also of course it should be somewhat fast. Perhaps anyone has a advice or a secret tip? Shall be used on BMPCC with BMPCC-Nikon Speedbooster.
