One chapter at a time, I'm translating to english my graduation work which is 90% focused on anamorphics. I hope it brings some light onto common questions as well as works as a good follow-up read af

A few DIY for those who don't want to spend a ton of money but still love the look. :)

The Helios looks fantastic Tito. I wish you'd take some quick video of it with a 1.5x and 2x to see what kind of look you can get with it and a real anamorphic. Anyway, thanks for the vid.

I'll get to that soon! I think Rich has a bunch of clips using the FlareFactory and the Century 1.33, which is kind of what you're looking for! :)

Thanks. Will check them out. Also, just consider it an idea for a future vid. If you get to it, great. That footage from the Helios is really inspiring. If you were to combine that with a 1.5x I bet it would give a 2x feeling. Anyway, keep the Chop Shop vids coming! Glad I found your channel.

Hello Tito and everyone.

Looking for a budget prime around 50/58mm lens to "match" my SLR Magic 35mm T1.4. when pairing it with Moller 32/2x and SLR Magic Rangefinder.

Due to local availability and price I've narrowed the options to: Helios 44-2 58mm f2 and Nikon E 50mm 1.8. 

Which of those do you think that would match the SLR Magic 35mm better?

I have a FD 55 1.2 that I love and use for spherical shots around that focal length, but since the front element is very big, there is major risk of scratching it when attaching the anamorphic. That's why I'm looking for a cheaper and smaller front element option.

Thanks!

I have never used the SLR Magic lens before so I don't know if its image tends towards the cleaner side or the artifact side, and that's what's gonna make the decision for you. 

One can't go wrong with the Helios 44, it's so simple and cheap and with so many tests out there that you know exactly what to expect out of it. I suppose the Nikon goes along the cleaner side, since it's more modern and has more/better coatings. So you need to evaluate how clean is SLR Magic's image and flares and go with it!  :)

Tito, just wanted to say thanks for work. It's been a holy book for me when looking which lens to buy next.

I'd like to get your thoughts on the Isco Widescreen 2000MC. Had mine for a good few months now and it appears to be quite temperamental, I struggle to get a decent focus out of it with various lengths and dioptres, especially the SLR range finder... Not sure if I have a compromised version...

I'm sure it's nothing to do with my focusing ability... I hope.

Thanks a lot, Rick! Well, your comment inspired me to shoot an episode about the Isco Widescreen 2000MC, let me know what you think of it!

Do you have more frames or footage of 2x anamorphic with the 63mm Nikon lens? 

Thanks for the info again!

I got a few of them by the end of the tutorial. Not sure if they're enough to satisfy your craving. hahaha

Sucks that you sold off a number of prized lenses to pay for it Tito but glad it didn't end up worse than that. Thanks for letting people know about this scam.

Yeah, on the bright side, it forced me to think about the lenses I think are really worth keeping, and the ones I was just collecting - which would be a waste of money and space, in my case.
