Anamorphic Mc 2x Isco - Gottingen Focus ring locked

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would be hugely greatful if someone can offer me some advice on this lens and the problem i have with it.

 

I have just recieved a Isco - Gottingen lens and the focus ring seems to be locked at 16m.  I'm unable to focus and was hoping someone was able to inform me the correct way to be able to fix this, or inform me as to which sew to undo.

 

 

Many thanks for you time :)

You have to pull the ring until it pops out a little, then the focus ring will be unlocked. At least on my isco it's this way (yours looks different)

When I got mine, the first time it was pretty hard but then it worked flawlessly.

Hi Araccaria and Ken,

 

Thanks so much for your help with this.  I tried both, pulling it out from the front and pushin it back in.  But it still doesn't want to move.  I have undone the small screws around the lens to see if one was locking it in, but it didn't help.

 

Thanks anyway, i will continue to try.

      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!

      What are the best smartphone lenses out there and are there any decent optics tests online? I know brands like Moment lead the way (perhaps with their marketing) but are there better options for an iPhone 11? Looking for quality over price although of course when it comes down to it price will be a concern. Thanks.
