Hey Guys.


I'm absolutely new in anamorphic shooting and I'm just getting a BMPCC (Which means it will be present in about 5 months or so :D)


I'm thinking about getting a bit into anamorphic shooting. I like the "look" of it very much, because it simply creates a whole different feeling than a "normal" 16*9 image.



So I have a few questions:


How should/can I start shooting anamorphic with the BMPCC? What lens / adapter+lens can be used with the Pocket? It should not be too expensive as I'm just beginning and want to get a bit in touch with it.


What do I have to think of in terms of workflow? -> During Production and of course especially in Postproduction?


I hope these questions do not sound to stupid or naive :D


Greetings from germany.

I use the Bolex 8/19/1.5 and the Iscorama Iscomorphot. For a taking lens, the widest I've been able to go is with a 28mm lens, and I think it will wrk on 24mm but I haven't tried. A few things to consider: you can't see the undistorted image using the BMPC, you need another monitor to do that and post is the same as anything else except you need to obviously squeeze the image down to whatever aspect ratio is right for your lens. As my lenses are 1.5x, I squeeze the horizontal axis to 0.667. Good luck! And buy the Anamorphic Guide above, it has a ton of good info in it.
