How to Buy An Anamorphic Lens - A Flowchart


Recommended Posts

Hey y'all! After a long time playing and testing, I made a flowchart that guides you through the process of buying scopes. This is mainly aimed at beginners, but I'm hoping it can at least be fun for experienced shooters too. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Hey everyone, thank you Tito for this chart, you're my hero! I've recently gone way down into the rabbit hole on anamorphic research. I've been shooting for years and only recently learned the magic I've been missing comes down to the Anamorphic look. I'm more into the bokeh and the cinematic 'painterly' quality to the image and don't really have too much interest in the flaring so much. I have a GH5 and an Arri Amira. Following your flow chart feels like it leads to the Isco Ultra Stars, would they work on both the GH5 and the Amira? And how would that compare to the Rapido Full Package C? I'm looking for something that 'could' be used in a documentary handheld free form quality and also narrative on sticks and sliders. Forgive me if this question is answered somewhere, I've been researching everywhere for specifics.

Hey Jamie, I'm glad the chart helped!

That's a pretty specific question. If you want more details, you can send it at www.tferradans.com/askme . Otherwise, yes, they would work on both cameras, with different limitations.
