Turn your DSLR prime lenses into anamorphic lenses with our custom built anamorphic lens kits!

What Are Anamorphic Lenses?

Our anamorphic lenses are cinema-grade lenses adaptable for modern DSLR and cinema cameras. Anamorphic lenses attach to the front of a prime lens set and double the horizontal view by a factor of 2. Once de-squeezed in post, this results in long horizontal lens flares and beautiful painted bokeh that sets an image far apart from the traditional DSLR look.

Benefits & Features

Anamorphic lenses are a great tool for cinematographers looking to make their photography stand apart from traditional images. Traditional anamorphic prime lenses like Cooke are tremendous quality, but come at a tremendous price. Our lenses were originally expensive cinema lenses meant to sharply resolve theatrical film. We have re-purposed them to be adaptable and affordable.

Using A Rangefinder to Macro Focus with Your Anamorphic lens

Posted by | November 22 | No Comments on Using A Rangefinder to Macro Focus with Your Anamorphic lens

What is a rangefinder? An anamorphic rangefinder is a set of two achromat diopters in reverse polarity. You can then achieve focus for the entire setup by varying the distance between those two diopters. In close focus, the diopters are at their maximum distance apart, and at infinity, they are right next to each other. Popular rangefinders for anamorphic lenes […]
