Vintage Sankyoscope Anamorphic 1.5X?

Recommended Posts

they did 2 types one using mirrors variation on the delrama.

and another rarer one using 2 optics like yashica scope.


both will be better than the delrama but maybe not as sharp as a yashica scope.

stopping down iris will even the miss match out.

it may need adjusting an easy job for some with delicate hands a disaster for someone with two club hands.

i've got one that looks almost exactly like that, but it's branded izukar-scope and the lens cap doesnt have the conversion table.


the bit on the end that says 0.7~1meter is a diopter that screws off. 


it needs to be stopped down to f3.5.


a shot on a nikon v1 with a takumar 35mm f3.5 with the diopter, straight out of the camera.


and one without, but with a soft takumar 35mm f2, straight out of the camera.


i could have sworn that i took some on a gh2 with a zeiss 50mm but i cant seem to find those pics.....

      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!

      Hello everyone,
      Great to see that there is a dedicated lens section on this lovely forum now!

      Ironglass, a Ukraine company, that has been offering cinemodded Russian lenses (such as the Helios 44-2) for a number of years is now offering a completely rehoused version of their lenses. I bought the original cinemods back in 2018 and am now thinking of upgrading. So I am familiar with their optical performance, however I would be interested if anyone here has seen these up close and can speak to their mechanical capacity, i.e. how well the rehouse is done. I've seen a number of announcements around the web from last fall, but no real hands-on reviews.
      I'd be really grateful for anyone experiences on these!
