Isco anamorphot 1.5x Focus Diopter

Recommended Posts

I have this Isco Anamorphot 1.5x. I really like the dreamy feel of it. But it's quite hard to focus things that are maybe 3-5 ft away (whitout any diopters). I get sharp closeup with the 40mm dioptier that came with it but then I can only do close-up cannot focus to infinity. I see people uses a +0.5 diopter to maybe +1 diopter to get sharper images with their Anamorphic lenses. Is there a good diopter option I could get so I could still get the infinity focus and be able to close focus (without being big close-ups) Anyone can help me out ?

without diopter I can't focus right when closer to the subject! It would be perfect If I could focus that close and then get infinity alsoCapture d’écran 2016-11-29 à 13.24.41.png

If I understand your question correctly, do some research on:

SLR Magic Rangefinder, Rectilux CoreDNA or FM Lens (Focus Module). 

These products allows a focusing range from ≈1 meter to infinity. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

Hey SigurdW, thanks for the reply. These solution are all quite expensive I thought I could simply use a diopter that could help me to get a closer focus distance while keeping the ability to focus to infinity without having to unscrew that diopter. 

 

Cheers

What you want is impossible, as a diopter always limits your maximum focus distance. So no infinity, but closer focus yes. Read up on Tito's site http://www.tferradans.com/blog/?p=7282
