elmoscope type 1

Recommended Posts

ok i kinda weakened last night... found a type1 elmoscope it had an hour to go  glass looks clean here's two pics. there's abit of talk on the forum about the type 2 being better or the one to get. so i'm curious as to why that is ? i couldn't find any real comparisons between the type one or two, lots of reviews comparing the type 2 to other anamorphics but not much talk comparing the two elmoscopes. i couldn't seem to find anything negative about the type 1 only that the type 2 is better liked. the title description lists it as    Excellent ELMOSCOPE Anamorphic Projector 16mm 8mm Vintage Camera Projection Lens. so i figure it should be ok on mft  when the bmp4k eventually turns up . i did find one review who had it mounted to a 5d so i'm thinking i'm safe in that regard. more pics to come when it arrives.   opinions ?

Yeah, it's a nice lens & as Tito said is basically identical to the Sankor 16D (some say its a rebranded Sankor), not the Kowa! It is exactly the same width at the back as the Version 2 & has blue flares (I think some don't, but the one I had did). The Elmoscope 2 is basically the same as a Kowa for B&H etc.

They're cheap & good - not as small as you might think, but not massive.

awesome, thanks for the replies guys. it was definitely an impulse buy and sometimes those impulse buys can go horribly wrong  so its a bit of a relief to hear back from you guys, i couldn't see how it wouldn't work, i was just unsure why the mark two was more popular . speculating aloud, what sort of widths are we talking ? soonish i hope to have a  mft mount so that's what i am planning for

what tweak said. More like a Sankor 16-D, since the Kowa 16-D is tiny. :)

True, my bad had 16D on the wrong spot haha. Sankor 16-D also Kowa 16/16A are very similar (though physically shorter) but will still perform very much the same, is what I was getting at.

hmm it seems the back thread is an unusual size.here is a photo, i think i should be looking for a 50mm thread. ebay lists 49mm or 52 mm but no 50 mm so i'm kinda looking at this clamp which has the convenient 52mm thread size

am i on the right track ?

Many people say that vidatlantic's clamps aren't that good. They can damage your scope pretty easily and leave screw marks on the barrel. 

To be honest, I'd go with some manufactured clamp, especially since your back thread isn't standard size. 

You could try asking RafCamera (Russia) or Arkadiusz Kroma (Poland) - both of them offer the best quality/price ratio - or just go all in and contact Redstan (UK), whose clamps are simply a work of art.

Hi Leslie. Just wondering what your solution was in the end and what clamp you went with as I am having difficulty finding exactly what I need.

 

Thanks in advance

i didn't hear back. not sure whether my email got lost or what, i was kinda impatient after a couple of weeks, i ended up getting a local machinist to turn something up. However it would have been cheaper buying redstan. from what i remember the back thread size is metric 49 mm

Some what related... bizarrely i seem to find double focusing easier on the canon 60d than the p4k. i have no logical explanation for why that is either. I do have ml installed on the canon but the 60d doesn't really get me the resolutions or clip length i would like. I'm undecided on getting a fvd or a better model canon to run ml and raw on

i do have an active  thread called bmp4k adventures there maybe more info or pictures on the anamorphic set up there

er... i was wrong, Its actually 50mm metric, Any lens clamp with a bigger than 50mm hole would fit.

Sorry about that was just looking at the elmoscope and thought i should recheck that as 49mm is a standard size.
