Iscorama VS Iscomorphot 8 2x VS Iscomorphot 8 1.5x

Do you know of anyone using a zoom close up with these babies, like the old HOYA units back in the day - typically 1-10 diops of zoom

 

They are cheap to buy so crap for stills but maybe useable for vids

I had one of those once: http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/741-isco-gottingen-anamorphot-15x-not-to-be-confused-with-iscormorphot-15x

 

That was a focus-through design and very difficult to work with. You have to reposition the camera to focus. The Iscomorphot 8 1.5x is very easy to use (fully rack-focusable and has a minimum focus distance of about 2.5'), as long as you keep your aperture above f/5.6.

I have one of those too. It forces me to use an even longer lens to avoid vignetting and is only useful for extreme close ups and macro shots. I haven't used it since I bought it.

My Iscomorphot 8/1.5 came with an itty-bitty little clamp. Trouble is, the rear thread is 22mm and, as far as I'm aware of, no stepping rings are anywhere near that small (Anyone know of any?).

 

I would really like to get that redstan clamp though, badass little combo.

@Ben I don't think that you are going find any step rings small enough. Redstan has a clamp, or you can do what I did (see last page).

Where would I get the redstan clamp? It's not on his ebay or website. Would I have to order it custom?

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
       
       
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!
