Anamorphic on a Budget.

Tito, I wish you would consider some future videos where you combine modded lenses with 1.33, 1.5, 1.75, and 2 to see what kind of looks you can achieve. Also, that lens where you made the aperture purple, I wanted to see what the pics/video would look like after you were finished but I don't think you posted any. Anyway, thanks for all you do. Love the vids.

It's been on my plans for a while, but I want a real script instead of just random shots for these, as I'm not really testing anything, just showcasing. :P

As for the purple aperture, I did very few tests before sending it away, and there was just NO WAY to compete with the orange/amber version.

Well I dig what you do and appreciate all the hard work you put into it. I'm learning a lot.

Hey Tito, how do you pronounce your name? It sounds like to me you say "Tchituh Feddens, out".

Hahaha, that's close enough. Just add some french-like R's on the last name (Ferradans). It's a sound that I couldn't find in the English language since it's throat based. hahaha.

I've been searching everywhere online but cannot find this answer. What are the front/rear diameter dimensions of the Schneider ES Cinelux 2x?

Aaron, if you plan on doing any modding/adapting, it's worth getting yourself an affordable digital caliper off eBay.

Hi Tito! About your last episode of tuning up the Kowa, when do you know the Lens have to be tuned?

I have the 16H and found it sharp enough but found interesting if it could be sharper though.

Risky dilema.

Sooo, the answer isn't the best: the only way of knowing for sure is taking it apart. :( 

If it can't be improved, you just set it back to its default. :)

Tito:

It was some time ago and I do not quite remember, but I do recall a discussion thread on EOSHD and the showing of pictures with information about "focus adjustments" being made to the Kowa B&H (and presumably possible for the Elmoscope II). I did see your video in which you adjusted things for a sharper focus, and was now looking for the original discussion thread as well. Not sure if you have stored the original discussion or if you could provide a reference link, but perhaps you could.

Did your previous B&H with Elmoscope II comparison video use any such focus modifications?

Sure, the original thread with the mod is this one: 

 

I hadn't adjusted any of the lenses for that episode, so that might have somewhat affected the results, yes.

Hi there, Thank you for all this information Tito!.. a lot of work there!...

Just wondering if you know anything about the Isco Gottingen Kiptar 2x ?? 

Mikey

Hey Mike,

Thank you! :D

The Kiptar is too big for me now. I never had one and I don't fancy it too much. :(

But there's definitely someone in this forum that has one and loves it.

Thank you for the reply!.. I am very new to the anamorphic world, and I am just realising the size on this monster!.. do you think it would be single focus or double?.. 

many thanks again

Mikey
