Anamorphic Meopta Anagon bluring issues

Recommended Posts

Hello to you all,

 

another issue with the anaorphic lenses. I am a newbie to these stuff. I recently bought an anamorphic lens (Meopta Anagon 2x80) in order to practice for my forthcoming shooting. The issue that I am facing is that when I shoot between 1m-2,5m the picture is blur and completely useles. The problem seems to dissapear when I shoot 3m and beyond. Please advice any solution and why that happens. For your info, before anamorphic I use a prime 58mm f1,4.

This is because the anamorphic lens has a certain minimum focus distance. In your case that probably would be around 3 meters. To achieve good results with closer focus, you will need to use diopters in front of the anamorphic lens.

      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
