Advice on eBay anamorphic lens listing (No advertising)

Recommended Posts

Just saw this on ebay, the auction is ending very soon. (Not my listing, just thought i'd share with you as the price seems reasonable)

Sun Anamorphot 16 2x
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sun-Anamorphic-Anamorphot-Adapter-16-2x-/322134100865?

Cannot buy it now as I don't have the cash :s

I just bought an ISCO ULTRA STAR (with the projection lenses) for 130€. I don't know what I would have picked if I found the Sun 16 2x first ...

I guess the Sun is same as Proskar lens.  If true, to compare with ISCO integrated lens, the difference is rear mount size, and flare .  But ISCO might be a little bit sharper, and less flare.

Hey All,

I wanted to get advice on this projector lens here:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Schneider-Super-Cinelux-2x-Anamorphic-Lens-/282091164574?hash=item41adf1939e:g:eHYAAOSwhOVXfDaJ

My concern is focus pulling, ive been researching and reading however I wanted to ask here to be sure. Is this one of those lenses that would need to be re-housed? Would it work if I just mounted it against my dslr lens? (either on a rig or using one of those front lens clamps)

Going along with this one I found a cheaper lens that seems promising, however I'd love tto hear your opinions.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Kowa-Prominar-Anamorphic-16-S-Lens-/282088811848?hash=item41adcdad48:g:WmEAAOSwgY9XeXjk

Im doing the common thing: trying to do genuine anamorphic for dirt cheap, so I'd rather get told that it's possible without a massive projector lens and a setup to go with it.

I am likely asking the wrong questions so if you guys can help I would be really appreciative!

My previous post was hidden for a week or so therefore I ended up buying a Kowa Prominar 16. However it seems to just be called a "16" which I couldnt find details on here.

Heres a photo of it from the ebay listing:

You can see it just ends at 16 and I cant find any info on it. When it arrives I'll take some samples with it and let you all know what it ends up like.

Thanks everyone :D

I have one with the same size and look of a 16h (around 50mm rear thread, around 70mm front diameter) that doesn't even says "16" it just says kowa prominar. The one you post seems like a 16d/16s.

No the one he posted is just a "16" I have a feeling it's an older version (pre A,S,D etc), it's similar in size and make to a 16s but slightly different. You can use 16s clamp. It has blue flares and pretty good image quality, I bought one for my brother in law.

First time see this lens: http://www.ebay.com/itm/131898924430

It is a big lens.  So I am not interested in it.  Do you think how much it is worth?

These lenses were re-worked Kowa B&H bodies, with ability to manually spin orientation for surreal effects. Sometimes motorised by attaching gear wheel to orientation ring. Results seen in video below. As for how much it's worth? - there was a load of these for sale a couple of years ago, usually went cheaper than regular Kowa B&H prices since the added bodywork adds a bit of weight, and the front section is built up to 115mm making it a bit more complicated to source affordable filter/close up diopter solutions that would fit. So it's slightly less appealing for general DSLR type filmmaking - but it could be made to work.

Hello!

I found an old lens for some dirt cheap price. It's a Galileo Anamorfico 1:2 lens. Has anybody had this lens or knows anything about it? I want to get it for my dslr but not sure whether I can fit it in a clamp.

I saw several of these on ebay the last months. I was looking for something smaller & lighter though, so I didn't go with it. Curious to see what it's like optically.

Judging by pictures of the Galileo Anamorfico, it is a re-branded Bausch & Lomb Cinemascope Attachment I, so it will have identical optical properties..
