Isco Micro Compact Anamorphic Lens

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.

If you’re interested in extra wide anamorphic, we make a SuperScope version of this lens. Both Red and Gold versions come in SuperScope.

Lens & Camera Requirements

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.

See our anamorphic lens calculator to determine which lenses will work for your setup

For this Isco anamorphic, we recommend the following minimum focal lengths for common sensor sizes.

  • 85 mm
for Full Frame Cameras

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.

  • 64 mm

  • 42.5 mm
for Super35 Cameras
