My cameras and kit

Found 5 results

  1. Hey guys! So, I'm selling my last remaining anamorphics, and just keeping the two I like the most. The ones that are going away are pretty good, and rare too, one could say. They're all in great shape, no dents, dust, scratches or fungus. -- UPDATED 05/16/2014 Thanks everyone, all lenses have been sold and I've only kept the Iscorama. Should look for a 2x stretch dual focus setup after a while, but right now I'm just glad people were so honest with buying the lenses I had. :)
  2. Besides being a regular member, I've already sold more than a few lenses in this forum and in DVXUser. Since I'm from Brazil, eBay isn't a good option for me, and people really don't dig into anamorphics here. Once again, I have more lenses than I can use, and decided to let them go. Check out the description, price and pictures below. I only accept PayPal. Taxes and shipping are my responsibility. :) If interested, send me a PM, or an email! ferradans@gmail.com   1 - Panasonic LA7200 + Custom Front with 105mm thread + Redstan Clamp. (1.33x stretch, focus through) I've modded this one hard, to fit every need. Now I'm moving towards LOMOs and would be sad to let this baby in the locker, gathering dust. I've machined a custom front for it, creating 105mm filter threads for attaching big diopters - which are somewhat hard to come across.   The glass is in perfect condition, no haze, fungus, scratches or chips this time. Rear thread is secured with Redstan's clamp, with 67mm threads, closest pairing possible with the taking lens. I'm including front and rear caps - not the original ones - and the original lens pouch.   As everyone already knows, it's focus through, allows you to rack focus on the taking lens and go extra wide-angle at the same time. Has some problems regarding corner sharpness, but I think it's awesome.   I'm including in this kit a custom-made filter holder for 4.5" diopters, and three of these: +0.5, +1 and +2, Tiffen, in perfect shape. This way, you won't need anything else in order to start shooting with this lens, even at the widest lenses and apertures. This size of glass is very hard to find, and this adapter doesn't even have a copy. Single unit! US$1450 shipped (LA7200 + redstan clamp + front clamp with 105mm threads + custom adapter 105mm to 4.5" + Diopter kit (+0.5, +1 and +2) LA7200 photos http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/85-panasonic-ag-la7200-clamps/
  3. When I started into the anamorphic experience, I was quite in a rush and ended up getting more lenses than I could actually use, so, in order to make them useful to someone and not only sit in my shelf, I'm letting them go. I modded them a bit, to make them easier to work with, and everything is described.   Ended up upgrading the set of the Century, and after a long mental fight, decided to let the Kowa go to someone else's happy home. Both lenses come with a lot of extras to avoid any more shopping to get them working. After they arrive, you're ready to go and shoot whatever you want. I accept Paypal, the taxes are on me! PM me, or send me an email: ferradans@gmail.com 1 - Century Optics Bayo for GL1. (1.33x stretch, focus through) This was originally a bayo mount, unable to use with our loved threaded lenses. I got a step up ring "stuck" into the bayo slot, so it's transformed into a 52mm mount and very very safe. It's not a permanent mod. The lens can be switched back to bayo if you want, just unscrew the back and remove the step-up ring. The front element has a few cleaning marks in one of the borders, but they don't affect the image. It comes with front and rear caps. I also adapted a 77mm thread on the front - kind of rude, but it's safe and can be removed - for attaching filters/diopters. I'm providing a pair of very rare Spiratone 77mm diopters, with low strenght: +0.25 and +0.5. This combination of low strength and big size is very valuable when working with anamorphics. Also included is a Series 9 77mm adapter and retaining ring, +1 and +3 Series 9 diopters (in pouches), and, finally, a 77-62mm step down ring for the Sigma +1.6 Achromatic diopter - in original jewel case. Achromatic diopters have much higher image quality, therefore, are also greatly seeked by anamorphic shooters.   And, when you though there was nothing more that could possibly fit here, I'm putting in two extra "anamorphized" primes. A Helios 44 58mm with f/4 fixed oval aperture, and a Pentacon 29mm f/4 fixed oval aperture as well. Both with M42 to EF adapters, M42 rear caps and front caps. The Pentacon comes with a rubber hood and a step-down ring 55-52mm to allow use with the Century. Both lenses have pouches. US$1300 + shipping Century photos http://www.eoshd.com...ry-optics-bayo/   Anamorphized lenses photos http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/41-anamorphized-lenses/ 2 - Kowa Bell and Howell (2x stretch, double focus) Sadly, I'm letting this wonderful lens go. It also comes with everything you need to start shooting. Lens in great shape, no scratches, no fungus, nothing. Crystal clear glass. Very little dust inside, which is common for a lens this old. I bought it a few months ago, when I was starting into anamorphics and now will have to let it go, because I can't make good use of double focus, and gotta make room for the LOMO. This kit includes the original front and read caps, as well as the original lens pouch, but also Redstan front and rear clamps (62mm rear, with a locking ring that won't let the lens fall while you align it, 72mm front) and extra front and rear caps for the clamps, to keep the lens ready to shoot, and safe, at all times. I'll also include a lot of step up and down rings to make the clamp fit into any taking lens filter thread (49, 52, 55, 58 and 67mm). The diopters included here are a rare Tokina 72mm +0.5, in original jewel case, and four Vivitar 72mm (+1, +2, +4 and +10) in a filter pouch. US$1500 + shipping http://www.eoshd.com...wa-bell-howell/   --------------------------------------------------------   SOLD!   2 - Optex 52mm (1.33x stretch, focus through) I'd keep this one as redstan clamp fits perfectly, but I just found a 58mm rear one, so this is going out. It comes with front and rear caps, as well as the original box.  No markings, scratch or else on the glass. Absolutely top quality.   US$750   http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/32-optex-52mm/   3 - Hypergonar Hi-Fi 2 (2x stretch, double focus) I fell in love with the look of this lens from that Edwin Lee "Futuristic Shangai" clip - I think everyone into anamorphics has seen it. hahahah - and got it straight from france. It's quite a heavy lens and required a lot of extra gear to work properly. Following Edwin Lee's tip, I got the Velbon SPT-1 Lens Support, as well as a Canon 70-200mm lens collar, Vid-Atlantic's extra large clam and caps for front and rear elements.   The Hypergonar doesn't have a filter thread, so getting close focus with it was a nightmare. I glued a 95-86mm step-down ring reversed on the front of the lens, so anything with an 86mm thread can be attached. It comes with a regular 77mm close-up kit (+1, +2, +4) and step rings 86-77mm and 77-72mm, for easier mounting or filtering.   You just gotta attach the kit to your camera and prime and go shoot. Nothing else is required!   US$700   http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/29-hypergonar-hi-fi-2/   4 - Lomo Squarefront 35-NAS-4-1 with OKC 1-50-1 in OCT-18 When I got this one, I still had hope to adapt it into the 5D3. Unnecessary to say, it didn't work. The glass is in good shape, but most of the markings on the body are gone. It comes with the pairing 50mm f/2.5, and it works perfectly on other cameras. The only custom-made thing about this one is the front cap, that's brand new, since it didn't have one when I bought it. Rear cap's included as well.   US$1200   http://www.eoshd.com/comments/gallery/album/30-lomo-squarefront-35nas4-1-with-okc1-50-1-oct18/   About shipping, I'm from Brazil, and shipping costs here are a bit random. FedEx tends to be way more expensive than regular mail, so, I need to check before saying anything about it for sure.   On the other hand, I'll be in the U.S. from March 18 to 25, and can ship the lenses from NY if any buyer from the U.S. gets interested. This will make shipping a lot faster and cheaper as well. :D
  4. Would a Century Anamorphic adapter with a 37mm mount work with a GH3? I'm unclear as to whether this goes between the camera and the "prime" lens, or after the prime lens?
  5. We are about to start a small 0$ project that I'm going to shoot it on anamorphic adapters and GH2. Although the Kowa B&H is mostly good for exteriors there are quite a few interior shots ( car interior, rural gas station bathroom, ... ) in this project. Test are showing even Tokina 11-16 set at 11mm won't provide the POV the script is asking for. My options are narrowing down to either rewrite or shoot on FishEye for most of interiors and rewrite to explain the the visuals - re-modeling spaces are out of budget/question . There is one more last option and that is LA-7200 or century optics anamorphic that I don't know much about. Before I start the bid fighting the pirates on the Bay I need to know if there are any other viable options out there for really wide scopes within the low budget access. Any help is appreciated.
