LOMO is back! Anamorphic (1.3x) attachment


solo

Recommended Posts

yeah, but 1.3x and dual focus? its not clear if it is single focus 

"Made by Lomo for Luma Tech, this adapter has been designed specifically for use with the Luma Tech S35 cine lens range (35mm focal length and above). The anamorphic adapter does not require any other special attachments, so removes the need to have a specific set of lenses just for anamorphic use."

I want to be excited. But 120mm... 2KG... yikes. And only 1.3x... why can't someone revive the Iscorama...?

  
  

​Yeah why are all the new anamorphic lenses inferior to what consumers had in the 70's? What's going on there?

The Iscorama wasn't cheap when it came out, but it was accessible for enthusiasts, small and sharp.

It is really strange and unfortunate. I'd love an iscorama made with new materials and a warranty.

​They're all afraid of doing things properly.  Business men who see everyone talking about anamorphic and think they can make a quick buck without understanding why people shoot anamorphic in the first place.

​it's an awfully large lump for such a tiny front element.  they claim it's for use on their fast s35mm primes, but that element aint big enough to do that.  then they select 1.33x.  

I'm not afraid of 2kg, if it does more than a isco54 - ie, is sharp at f1.4, full frame, single focus, allows 50mm or wider taking lenses on full frame.  Unfortunately it looks as if it;s gonna be another pointless lens that the uninformed owner operator buy thinking it will make their work look more cinematic.  Then they'll slap a 'cinema lens' price tag on it.

LOMO don;t need to return.  They did all they needed to with the square fronts and round fronts.  why do these companies always miss the point, reintroducing something but in a watered down boring way?

This is a niche market !

Isco/Schneider with half a dozen Academy of Motion Picture Achievement awards tried very hard to introduce their products to a larger number of film enthusiasts. They even organised trips to Israel for example with experts and several Iscoramas for demonstration for the interestred enthusiast. All their effort and their great concept and their absolute consistent productline (great concept with different sized anamorphics for different purposes, achromats and solutions for projetcion) did not prevent them from bankruptcy.

So, there won't be something like an Iscorama again! The Iscoramas were made for film. With 4k and cropping no Iscorama would have ever seen the light.
