elubes Posted December 12, 2012 Share Posted December 12, 2012 Hi. New here. Read Andrew Reid's guide a couple times, been shooting, and doing a lot of research. I'm not super technical, but had a couple questions. I really love the look. Thanks in advance. 1. For digital, if an anamorphic squeezes a larger amount of area onto the same area a spherical uses, is this a reason why anamorphics are softer? I would think it takes more light rays to light a larger area, so how can an anamorphic fit this larger area with more light rays onto the same sensor a spherical would fit without losing resolution? 2. Are all anamorphics attached to spherical? I've never worked with hawks or panavisions before. They are also part spherical internally? Is it possible to make an anamorphic that goes straight to the sensor without the spherical taking lens at all? 3. Has Isco's patent run out? Are companies allowed to replicate their set-the-taking-lens-to-infinity focus mechanism yet? 4. Technically how is an anamorphic flare made? Just curious about what I'm actually seeing. The point of the source light is strong enough that all of them hit the anamorphic lens and stretches horizontally over the taking lens's surface before hitting the sensor? Thanks again.Erik Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
