Recommended Posts

I've found this incredible C-mount lens on Ebay for 150€. It's a LINOS MeVis-C 35mm 1.6 C-mount lens made by Qioptiq. It's an industrial lens, usualy sold for 1090$ (pstechnik.de/en/optics-c-mount.php).

The 35mm is designed for 1'' sensor. It has been used in some of the shots of Slumdog Millionaire. 
I'm looking for a solution to use it with my anamorphic lens my baby Hypergonar. I did some fast test and it's very promising !!!!! (flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/9845131316/)

      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 25mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter.
      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 10mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 1 foot / .3 meter.

      Bought on eBay, used with C-Mount to Micro Four Thirds lens mount on Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. 
      Optically in excellent condition. Inside no specks of dust, haze, oil scratches that I can detect. Clicks work as expected. Focus is smooth.
      Cosmetically clean on outside. Very good for its age. 

      Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter. Very light weight, and tiny size. Smallest lens I've ever owned. Paired with BMMCC or BMPCC this makes a fantastic combination. BMMCC / BMPCC is super 16 sensor so I didn't need a speedbooster, and no vignette. I would expect to see vignetting on any sensor size larger than super 16.

      EXTRA
      Comes with a 40mm Switar C-mount lens, Metabones MFT to C-mount adapter.
      SELLING as a complete set. Asking $570 OBO.

      Hi everybody, i'm a newbie here and almost newbie in video, despite i'm reading A LOT about "how to's".
       
      As you may understand english is not my main language so, sorry if i write something wrong.
       
      As per title of this post, this is my first attempt in shooting video not in a studio but in a controlled environment .
       
      I'd like to have your opinion about it, also what i could have done better.
       
      I have a photography background ,so can't really going in technicalities nor codecs and whatsoever.

      Hello to everyone,
       
      I've been looking for a small anamorphic adapter for a long long time from now, and finally, I got mine. 
       
      I've been hesitating about which one to take : the search of the perfect adapter that would suit all my needs..
      for a reasonnable price ofc.. (Yeah, I know..)
      :rolleyes:
       
      Anyway I'm so happy to tell you that I "may" have found it : 
       
      The Yashica Scope, 1.5x adapter anamorphic for 8mm ! 
       
      (Well let's make the things clear, I was looking for a tiny, compact, and light weight adapter, to be paired to some old school c-mount lenses on a BMPCC, I don't claim to have found an awesome setup that'll work for every scenarios !  :) )
       
      I've just received it, that's why I'll only share my first feelings in this post, but later when I'll have time to dig more in the subject I'll come back to this.
       
      I still need a proper way to attach it to my taking lens. I gave up on step-down ring because I plan to use it most of the time on my Angenieux C-mount lenses which filter thread is 39mm... The Yashica is 30mm.. And I can't find any 39 to 30mm ring. If anyone has any info about a ring that would work, let me know !  ^_^
       
      Anyway, the best way seems to be a custom clamp, still have to work on that...
       
      Here are some screenshots : 
       
                All of these screenshots have been shot with my Angenieux 25mm f/0.95 at fast aperture (even at 0.95 for the indoor shot) with a +1 diopter from Schneider.   Above f2.8 with the Angenieux 25mm, you can notice a little of vignetting on the edges, but It doesn't bother me too much, since I doesn't use the whole image, I prefer to crop in order to get a 2.35 or even a 2.10 aspect ratio. 2.66 is way too wide for most of my tastes !  :P And whatever, I'm mostly after the oval bokeh, flares and the overall look of anamorphic depth of field. So I'm good with that.. And It cleans the edges which seem to be pretty blurry on the Yashica.    (By the way, above 25mm I haven't seen any vignetting with my c-mount lenses)     So, have you ever experienced this anamorphic lens, what would you recommend to me in order to use it the best way possible ?    See you later and have a nice day/night to all.   (Oh and I apologize for my pretty weak english !)  :P
