Anamorphic test GH2 + Bell & Howell 2x Adapter + Cluster v4 driftwood


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Got my adapter a few days ago, started testing with it. I love how it works with the old pentax lenses I have. Seems to work best from F4-F8

Gear Used: --

GH2 Cluster v4 driftwood -- pentax-m SMC 50mm 1.7 -- Bell & Howell Kowa anamorphic apdater 2x -- Mattebox -- Polarizer 4x4 -- Graduated filter --

Here is the result

When you record with AVCHD you can only record 16:9 ratio
This means when filming with a 2x adapter the 1920 becomes 3840

so its 3840/1080 --> "3,55x ratio"

The original adapter was intended for 35mm or 16mm film with a ratio of 4:3
so the ratio became 8:3 --> "2,66x ratio" with is more common in cinema.

Because the avchd does not allow 4:3 recording with the GH2, 3,55x is the only option
