My Bolex Moller test

Recommended Posts

Just a test with one of my anamorphic lens (a beautiful Bolex Moller Anamorphot 16/32/1.5x). Andrew opened my mind reading his useful blog and shooter's guide, and now I love the anamorphics. I am learning, so I hope you understand my limitations in all the areas, included the video edition.

Shot on Canon 5D Mark II, the taken lens is a Zeiss C/Y 100mm Makro-Planar f2.8

Great test video! I get a bit bored with the anamorphic flares, but love these! Especially in the high contrast images with the silhouettes. Very nice.

 

The left corner looks less softwer than the right one in some shots. How did you attach the anamorphic to your lens?

Thanks, Julian.

I think the anamorphic lens is not properly aligned and the left side tends to be more blurred. Perhaps is the way to attach it to the primary lens (this Zeiss is a macro, and the filter thread are very far from the front len of this prime, maybe is one reason of this misalignment). I attach it with two very thin step down: a 49-39 and another 52-49. I must use tape to fix the anamorphic to the rings. I would like to buy a Redstan clamp and cross fingers that there is no internal problem with my Bolex.

      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
