Anamorphic Rigging Help!

Hello, 

          I recently ordered a Schneider Kreuznach WA Cinelux Anamorphic 2X lens and I was wondering what type of Lens support I should get? 

I saw the Tecnoir lens holder on eBay, but it seems to be the ONLY on rails support I can find.  It is also more expensive than the price I paid for the lens....

Can anyone provide me with any information as to were I could find a suitable Holder/adapter I could use to mount this baby on rails? 


Thanks!

That's Fantastic! I'll order some right away, although I'll look at UK prices and sellers since I'm based there ;) 

Is this setup easy to handle? Any alterations that you had to do? How do you thread the Anamorphic lens to the camera lens? 

Sorry to ask so many questions, but you seem to have the exact setup Im after :) 

You're a life saver!

Didn't find it very practical, I moved on to a more expensive single focus solution.

My Nikon lenses extend while focusing so I never connected them to the Cinelux

I tried to close the gap with a rubber lenshood.

But If you like to use step-up rings: The thread on the Cinelux is 68mm.

The Tripod Mount Ring is a little bit to wide so I used some Tape. You can also try to drill threaded holes for nylon screws.

2x Tripod Mount Rings might help to keep the Cinelux from twisting sideways when not connected to a taking lens.

Good Luck!

God that thing is huge.  Glad I found a Bolex.  I just use a little lens support I got from Lanparte and probably don't even need that.  It just takes a little weight off the filter threads and lens mount and makes it much easier to focus.
