I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957. It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering. - PRICE: $1500 USD - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer. Please PM me if interested .
Got my grubby mitts on a Kowa 1.75X and have been pretty impressed with the results so far. Minimum focus seems to be 40 inches without diopter. I am currently re-aligning the optic assembly so that proper sharpness can be obtained, then re-setting the focus ring to engage properly (sounds scary, but it's a lovely and simple design that even I can understand...*smash) - Boring & ugly footage I know, it was intended to test overall sharpness of minimum focus and low light performance F2 - F2.8 without diopter. I could not move the camera very much, as I had to hold the glass together temporarily whilst I carried out the tests for repair. *edit - sorry for the nasty iphone flare, was to check orientation I promise. This video is intended to put some Kowa Inflight 1.75X content out there, as when I searched the web, there was next to no footage to be found...I wonder if this is a bit of a rare beasty? https://vimeo.com/62406792
I am new to the anamorphic arena - and I have some questions regarding workflow for you experienced and professional anamorphic guru's. Firstly, here's the gear I'm using: Canon 5D Mark 3 Canon 85mm 1.2 II ISCO 1.75x Editing with Final Cut Pro 7 My first question is: Aspect Ratio: What is the correct aspect ratio for a 1.75x ISCO. I'm confused as to how to calculate 16:9 with a 1.75x zoom... does this mean that my aspect ratio is 2.35:1? My second question: What is the proper workflow in order to edit anamorphic footage in fcp? For example, once I've exported the H.264 footage recorded at 1080i24p into FCP, how do I squeeze the footage in order to use all the precious pixels at 16:9 with a 1.75x zoom? My third question: Focusing. Is it normal to not be able to focus my prime lens (manually) when the ISCO is attached? It seems that I have to remove the ISCO lens in order to adjust focus. Maybe there's something I'm missing with regards to the electronic mechanisms of the camera/lens that don't work with the ISCO? I have more questions, but these would be incredibly helpful if someone can help me with these questions. Thank you in advance!
