Will my ANAMOPRHIC LENS work?
This lens is an anamorphic single focus attachment kit and MUST be paired with an anamorphic lens. While this was designed for our Isco Micro series of lenses, this attachment will work on most anamorphic lenses with a front element diameter of up to around 65mm. For anamorphic lenses with larger front diameters, vignetting may occur.
The kit includes both anamorphic lens and front filter thread. You must let us know the size or model of your anamorphic lens front before ordering.
- PREMIUM OPTICAL QUALITY with V2 luxury grade nanocoatings for near transparency
- Adapts to virtually any anamorphic lens via a 58mm thread
- 180 degree focus throw with a 360 degree gear for follow focus
- Non-rotating 58mm front filter
- One of the lightest single focus setups available- just .5lb (0.3kg) in weight. Far lighter and smaller than comparable anamorphic rangefinders.
- Focus all the way down to around 6-12 inches (0.3m) without using diopters.
- Helicoid focus- easily rack-focus with your subjects using only one lens instead of focusing both the anamorphic and taking lens. Set your taking and prime to infinity, and you’re ready to single focus!
How To attach
You must use an anamorphic lens clamp or front filter thread to attach this to your anamorphic lens setup. Our custom clamp is not included in this listing. Our custom clamp seamless fit prevents any light leaks and does not use screws that damage your lens.
How do I focus?
To setup, you must first attach the anamorphic setup to the front filter of your prime taking lens (Zeiss, Canon, Nikon, Rokinon, Sigma, etc) using an anamorphic clamp. Next, set infinity focus on your prime taking lens and anamorphic lens. You are now ready to focus with our single focus attachment. Simply rotate the single focus attachment to focus closer, or to infinity. When setting your focus scale to infinity, your minimum focus will be around 1 feet (0.3m).
To change the focus scale for close focus, adjust the taking and anamorphic lens to set your “infinity focus” to around 3 feet. This will now allow you to use the attachment to focus to around 5-6 inches (.15m) without using diopters.
How does this compare to other anamorphic attachments?
This lens has been built with a focus system that allows for a very compact setup- the sharpest, lightest single focus setup available. We wanted something that didn’t heavily weigh down a gimbal setup, require large focusing mechanisms, add stress to the camera mount. This attachment was a perfect fit for our Isco Micro lens with matching premium optical quality.
This listing is for the SINGLE FOCUS ANAMORPHIC ATTACHMENT SETUP ONLY. This includes ONLY our custom single-focusing attachment with a 58mm rear and front thread and our custom front filter thread clamp. This listing does not include the camera, the prime taking lens, or any other accessories.
