Shooting anamorphic 2.35:1 productions on the 5D Mark II, an interview with Holscope Productions

Earlier this year EOSHD has varying degrees of success with the Canon 5D Mark II and Panasonic LA7200 anamorphic adapter – variable between unusable and not very good. I found the adapter worked best on the Panasonic GH1, where I was able to achieve an extremely wide angle with it. Typically for an anamorphic however, it still did not work well with shallow depth of field at fast apertures or at telephoto.

My name is Trey Vollmer and I’ve been pursuing filmmaking for three years now – I could not love it more! I also work as a full-time personal trainer here in Jacksonville, Florida. Believe it or not I have found that flexibility, strength and endurance play a key role in operating a camera. If I need a high angle I will get on top of a roof or climb a tree!
