The Isco Micro lens series is the smallest and highest quality anamorphic lens set available. No other lens approaches the value of Isco for sharpness and size. As with all Isco lenses, images are precise and pristine, rendering tack sharp anamorphic images even at 6K resolution and beyond. A solid brass casing encloses 5 lens elements with excellent light transmission.
We now have developed a SuperScope version of this anamorphic lens for extra wide anamorphic images! Add an additional 1.5x to your field of view with this anamorphic lens kit here.
This is a dual focus lens. If you’re interested in single focus, check out our new Isco Single Focus Anamorphic build here.
To avoid vignetting, anamorphic lenses should be paired with longer lenses. When using 2x anamorphic lenses, you are doubling your horizontal field of view. A 100mm 2x anamorphic lens will look like a 50mm spherical (non-anamorphic) lens.
For this Isco anamorphic, we recommend the following minimum focal lengths for common sensor sizes.
To further avoid vignetting, you can film in 4:3 mode on selected cameras such as the Magic Lantern Canon or the GH4. This will allow you to use lenses that are 75% wider without vignetting. In 4:3 mode, we recommend the following minimum focal lengths for common sensor sizes.
Clamp the lens to your prime lens using our custom 52mm, 58mm, or 72mm lens clamps
We offer the option of adding a 58mm or 67mm front filter thread to the front of the anamorphic lens for attaching standard lens filters.
Allows for follow focus attachment and 360 focusing operation.
