Pre-order. Production within 4-6 weeks.
Single anamorphic 1.33x is made in a metal body. Combined optics of glass and polymer.
The lenses have a multi-lightening, anti-reflective or other coating. The diameter of the anamorphic lens is 74 mm. The diameter of the front lens is 70 mm. The front thread for the light filter is 77 mm or 72 mm. You can install any filters 72/77 mm, for shooting very close objects you can use macro filters. Contraction coefficient of about 1.33x.
The lens can work with full-frame cameras, but in this case, spherical aberrations increase. Spherical aberrations is looking as blurring on the edge of the frame. In fact, they are the focus shift closer to the camera. They create a beautiful effect of a dedicated center and a beautiful bokeh.
The lens is better to use for APS-C and MFT crop cameras. The best performance lens shows on taking lens with a focal length of 25mm to 65mm on cameras with a crop factor 1.5 or 2 (APS-C or MFT).
The lens is suitable for the Canon 40mm, Canon 50 mm 1.8, Helios 44-2 lens on APS-C format. Is no vignetting on a full frame with a focal length 58mm and on the sensor crop 1,6 and 1,5 with a focal length of 38-40mm. On the sensor crop 2 (micro 4/3, 16 mm sensor) there is no vignetting at a focal length of 30mm. The values given are for fixed focal length lenses.
The anamorphic lens has chromatic aberrations. This effect can be used in artistic photography, as a beautiful color separation (shooting 70s, etc.). Chromatic aberrations can be removed programmatically. On YouTube there is a detailed description of how easy it is to programmatically remove chromatic aberrations.
Removal chromatic aberrations
On a full frame spherical aberration is more pronounced. Blurring at the edges is well suited for close-up portrait photography with a CloseUp filter. It looks like a beautiful wrapping of the picture on the edges of the frame, there is an allocation of the object in the center.
Most of clarity occurs at a distance of 10 meters to 20 meters. Depending on the optical design of the taking lens at a distance closer than 3 meters may need diopters +0.3/+0.5. If necessary, close-range shooting, if there are no diopters – you can clamp the diaphragm of the taking lens. The sharpness at infinity is in acceptable quality.
Examples of videos are in YouTube and Vimeo.
Length - 95 mm, diameter - 72 mm, mounting - 67 mm. Weight ~ 200 grams.
The lens does not have a clamping device included.
This is a prototype of the future lenses, they are has frayed and processing traces. The lenses are clean and no scratches.
Including worldwide shipping
Tracked delivery from 2 week to a month
Available in 3 pieces
An order for the production of a large number of filters (than available) adds 1 month to manufacture from date of purchase.
You can also order filters with the desired characteristics and diopter.
On eBay is more expensive by shipping, Pre-order-production after order.
I ship registered airmail with tracking number. If you have additional questions, please contact me.
