For sale anamorphic set baby Berthiot Hypergonar 1.75X + Voigtlander Classic 40mm f1.4

 

http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110998900533#ht_1370wt_1341

 

This is a huge opportunity to have the legendary baby Hypergonar, a very rare tiny anamorphic lens, only 52 grams (!!!), who gives beautiful cinemascope images with the Voigtlander.

You are ready to shoot in stunning cinemascope image on your micro 4/3 camera !!!!

 

The set is composed of :

 

1- baby  Berthiot Hypergonar 1.75X anamorphic lens

2- Voigtlander Classic 40mm F1.4 pancake lens in M mount

 

3- M mount to Micro 4/3 adapter

4- F clamp 52mm thread + 2 spacers with 52mm thread + replacing additional spacer for using the Hypergonar on other lens than the Voigtlander, with 52mm thread

5- step up ring 43mm-52mm (to go from Voigtlander to the clamp)

6- 39mm neutral filter (screwed on a 39mm filter without glass scotch taped on the Hypergonar)  

7- step up ring 39mm-52mm

8- L.C.W ND variable filter 52mm

9- Diopter 52mm filter Nikon +0.7

 

As you can see in this set, you are ready to shoot, the variable ND filter allowed you to shoot at 1/50 in video, with the diopter you can focus around 70 cm (2,3 feet) and without, it depends of the aperture you will choose, but let say between 1 meter (3.2 feet) and 3 meters (9.8 feet) to infinity. There is also an additional spacer (that replace the two two other spacers) then you can use the anamorphic on other lens with 52mm thread. The Hypergonar works from (some of) 35mm lenses, then up, without vignetting. No vignetting with the Voigtlander 40mm, very slight vignetting at closed aperture (f11, f16).

The Voigtlander is a very good 40mm pancake lens, it's like new. With the 43mm-52mm step up ring included, you can use it alone with 52mm filters.

 

The Hypergonar begin to be sharp from f2.8, very good at f4 and perfect at f5.6. With the diopter you can shoot at f1.4 with sharp result. It's in good condition due to its age. Very tiny dust, no haze.

I'm filming with the baby Hypergonar for month now, and I can tell you this is such a good lens. You can watch all the test I've done with it in the link bellow. As you can see I've tried it on several lenses (Fujian 35mm f1.6, Canon FD 50mm f1.8, Holga Lomo f8, SLR Magic Cine lens 50mm f0.95 and Voigtlander 40mm f1.4) and the combination with the Voigtlander is the ultimate set for me.

1.75X squeeze is also perfect, wider than the common 1.5X, and not to much wider than the 2X anamorphic lens. I apply 57,14% scale in Adobe Premiere.

 

The baby Hypergonar gives very beautiful anamorphic flares and stretched bokeh.

 

A useful comment from Alan about this Berthiot 1.75X anamorphic lens :

"you have the smallest hypergonar lens ever made and one of the last designs of the great french man. Professor Henri Chrétien signed over the rights to his fantastical optical invention Hypergonar to Twentieth Century-Fox in 1952,he was legally bound not to develop commercial scope lens or work with any other studios. or sell the optics commercially. This beauty was the only tiny amateur cinemascope lens he could legally make and could only be sold in france and her colonies :sad:

it was made for amateur standard 8mm film cameras.

his friends at the Société technique d'Optique et de Photographie (s.t.o.p). At first said it was impossible to scale a cinemascope lens down to this size,and make a usable system. Chrétien went too work and made this tiny gem a beauty. A work of genius.In the late 70s early 80s a supply of spare lens where found and and added too fuji single 8 plastic pocket size film cameras many of these lens would have been thrown in the dustbin in the late 1980s with the standard 8 and single 8 cameras,with the rise rise of video : ( so are now quite rare. i am glad the lens has gone home too france : )"

"Me too ! :)"

 

You won't regret that perfect anamorphic lens for your micro 4/3 camera (Panasonic GH1, GH2, GH3, Olympus….). It worth any penny !!!!

I'm definitely looking forward to what you have in the future.  And you'll love the GH3.  I noticed the banding in some of your videos, but I just did a banding test and it isn't so bad in the GH3.  Still there, but can be reduced.  And Anamorphic with 1080P60P works a charm.  Much better noise characteristics and very stable.

whoever got  the baby hypergonar .

stick the double element tokina on it 

the difference is huge over a single element close up...

 

I already have the Tokina +0.5 and it gives very good result on it. The buyer has it too. I don't have the 0.4, I don't have enough money for now to buy it... Is there a big difference between those two models ? Thanks

all in the +0.4 achromat..

the double element transforms the lens.
single element is good but way inferior.

it shows a bigger difference on the baby hypergonar than say the moller or the focus yashicascope..they can make uo some ground because the optics move.
the hypergonar and the achromat are the perfect combo and sharpest result i think but others can tell me i am wrong : )

      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.
