help with anamorphic lens identification

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,
just a question to see if I can figure something out.
A few months ago I obtained an anamorphic lens in good shape through e-bay.
A Kowa 16-d Bell & Howell. To me, it seems that the Kowa's are sort of confusing
in all their varieties. 16D, 8Z, Bell & Howell etc.

As I gathered, the Bell & Howell name suggests a good quality, like its their 'prime' range?
But 16D is an older, lesser quality lens than the 16Z, right?

Can someone help me identifying what kind of lens in the Kowa range I exactly obtained?

Hi, take a look on these:

I recommend you to buy the anamorphic shooters guide and go to shoot to share your footage and then we can comment.

Sometime you can get a good anamorphic "on the paper" but maybe the anamorphic just isn't in good shape. We need to see the image.
I got some lucky to get a good anamorphic Moller Anamorphot 32/2x. It suppose not to be a good one , but these in particular isn't bad.

If you need a good quality clamp or accesories these is the place:

Good luck!
