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 .
http://youtu.be/y2KdP55tIz8 I took the Izukar-scope out for a little walk today and for those that are interested, this is what i came back with. i've added a bit of a description in the youtube link, but it's getting a bit late here now, and i'm a bit knackered and a bit sunburnt :( so i'll just copy that here,... tomorrow i'll add a bit more about what it's like to use and some pics of the lens itself as i plan to put it up for auction. The Izukar-scope is a fixed focus x1.5 anamorphic lens made for 8mm movie cameras and projectors. Similar to the Sankyoscope, but this is a two optic system rather than a mirror system like the Sankyoscope which makes it quite usable at f2.8 with a good taking lens, kind of alright at f2. larger apertures and it goes a bit shit since tonnes of light leaks in from the sides washing the image out, and you start getting double vision out on the sides as the taking lens lets more light in. Made in Japan by Ichizuka Optics, circa a long fucking time ago :) Taking lens: Contax Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.4 Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH2 Straight out of the camera using the 24p Apocalypse Now Boom hack, no colour or level adjustments done. Shot mostly at f2.8 - f5.6 at 1/50 24p movie mode with an ND8, ND4 and a polarizer stacked on the front of the Izukar-Scope. Shot at 2pm-ish under harsh light cos i was curious as to how it would do. Close ups done with the dedicated diopter that screws onto the lens.
