SLR Magic Anamorphot C100 Example - Lens Compatibility?

Ryan Rossman

Recommended Posts

Hey there, I wanted to share my first test with my SLR Magic Anamorphot adapter and see if anyone else is using this adapter and what lenses they've found work well.  Specifically for EF mount.  


I shot this with a Canon C100 using the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens, which worked beautifully.  I'm looking to find other lenses that will work well which I've had little luck.  I think it works best with lenses that have a narrow front lens element.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!


Here is the video:

Hello Ryan,

I subscribed to your YouTube page after watching your videos with C100 and Anamorphot adapter. Great looking stuff. If fact, in one night I decided to educate myself via tutorials about the adapter. However, I tried to look for more videos due to the same question you had about different lenses.

I decided to order an Anamorphot adapter +1.33 from B&H so I can test it out with other lenses I have. I will definitely post some videos once I get a chance to play with it.

I know your post is dated back to 2014, so my apologies for being late hahaha!!!

Also, have you had a chance to try out Vid-Atlantic's anamorphic filters (well, they're not really anamorphic)?

I'm looking forward to seeing how I can maximize my c100's censor, and a make a 2Kx1080 image.

      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!
