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

Damn! I just remembered this thread, and I've posted a decent number of videos since the last update! hahaha ANAMORPHIC COOKBOOK - A CRY FOR HELP http://www.tferradans.com/blog/?p=8752 ANAMO

Hey, it's been a while since I last updated this thread! Lots and lots of new videos and a couple articles. ANAMORPHIC ON A BUDGET - BELL & HOWELL PROJECTION LENS http://tferradans.com/blog/?p=9

SLR Magic rangefinder lived on my camera for couple days, and went back home:)

it softens picture, not a lot, but still, and it makes setup bulky, for the same reason i am not after Core DNA, not giving up my small form factor for anything, well relatively small,

so most likely Isco 36 or 42, but i still can't decide between single focus and 2x squeeze, 2x is so freakin good, i just love it!

I can't really see the point in 1.5x, if you're going to all that hassle and expense you might as well go the whole way.

Because 1.5x will take HD or UHD (present on all cameras) and convert it to scope.

That's why :)

True enough.  1.5x looks pretty good.  significantly better than 1.3x which I agree -- why bother.

I'm tending towards 2x now that the GH5 has great support and CoreDNA is available.

Exactly. And as pointed out, most cameras like GH5 de-squeeze a 2x image, which is in the price range for someone buying an Iscorama (If you're using more expensive camera i.e Alexa etc, you'd just rent 2x lenses).

don't really care much about desqueeze, and not i don't even use it on GH5, as long as i can see the whole frame it doesn't matter to me ,

but 4:3 mode is an awesome feature, can't wait til Adobe will bring the 6K footage fix

Agreed.  Don't use on-camera de-squeeze since my monitor can do 1.3, 1.5, 1.75 and 2x.  I guess it would be important if you're going lightweight.  My DP, Mauri Galiano tried the GH5 in open-gate 6k anamorphic with a variety of 2x lenses.  He said it's fantastic and the only problem right now is there's a bug in H265 decoding in Premiere.  

I use Davinci so it's not so much of an issue.

Now I just need to get a good mount for my Sankor 16D.
