Panasonic 16:9 AG-LA7200 Anamorphic Lens Adapter - Customised for Wide Lenses

I'm selling the much sought after 16:9 converter by Panasonic, which is now typically used on DSLRs shooting 16:9 (1.77) format to make cinemascope (2.66) images - yielding a great cinematic look.

This adapter has been modified to remove the built in lens hood on the standard model. This is so the adapter could be used with wide angle lenses, such as the Tokina 11-16 to reduce vignetting. On a standard Micro Four Thirds sensor with a Tokina 11-16 at 11mm, there is no vignetting. GH2 (being slightly wider sensor vignettes at 12-ish mm).

The modification was not professionally done (there's not service for this kind of thing!) so it's a little rough and ready, but it performs flawlessly. The mod has soft velcro affixed around the edges, where it has been used with custom flags stuck on with velcro. Works pretty well for an indy film/shoestring setup without having to buy extremely expensive matte boxes (where nothing fits the LA7200 adapter).

The other mod, which is pretty standard, is it's been fitted with a 72mm ring. This screws directly onto Tokina 11-16, Tokina 28-80...and also looks awesome :)

There's a few tiny dust spots internally, which is pretty standard for these adapters. Nothing shows up on the images importantly. If you know what you're looking at, you'll know all about these adapters and how to use them already. Close focus is hard at wide open apertures, and I'd say f4 is about the sweet spot if close focusing. Further distance focusing you can open up quite a bit more. Lens flares on these are pretty awesome with big horizontal streaks.

Comes in original bag, with original cap. Custom cap has been fitted on the rear to cater for the 72mm ring that's been affixed.

Any questions, please feel free to ask.

£550 inc. Shipping
