Letus AnamorphX 1.8x


Recommended Posts

If you watched the video I posted from DSLR News Shooter he said it's about $1000+ from the current model.  So figure list to be $2700.  I just hope it doesn't have the same image breathing as their current 1.33x (1.21x?) adapter.  I'd like to see this head to head with an Iscorama 36.

Interesting, the other new anamorphics have not floated my boat due to the mild stretch ratio but this could be cool!


By breathing do you guys mean the effect that happens when pulling focus sharply? I notice it on Wes Anderson's early films like rushmore & royal tennenbaums.


$2700 is getting up there, though still cheaper than a iscorama.

Just saw this on the Letus website..






$3500!  Ouch!  She had better be good :)



Not sure if it is preorder only but the site let me go all the way to entering my address, so I presume it is good to go.


Any one with any more information or maybe test footage I have missed?

$3500 + any options.  I mean they really nickel and dime you to death with adapters, flags, filter holders, etc.  I'd really like to see a demo of this and whether or not it's even close to any of the 2x adapters let alone Iscoramas.

BTW thanks for the heads up @wallpaperviking!

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!
