Our custom built single focus anamorphic lens kits help filmmakers create a unique cinematic look with their existing DSLR or cinema camera and lenses. Our single focus capable kits are adaptable to virtually any camera- DSLR, Cinema, Medium Format, and can be attached to many different prime lenses. Built from premium Isco optics, this lens kit is extremely sharp at fast apertures, even f/1.4. Finally, our custom removable single focusing mechanism focuses this lens down to 12 inches (0.3m) without diopters!
If you already have an anamorphic lens and are just interested in the single focus mechanism, we have made that available in limited quantities! Attach this to your dual focus anamorphic and transform it into a single focus.
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 single focus anamorphic, we recommend the following minimum focal lengths for common sensor sizes.
To further avoid vignetting with this single focus anamorphic lens, 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.
If you are planning on using the single focus anamorphic lens attachment to add to your existing anamorphic, you may need one of our custom front filter lens clamps. As this single focus anamorphic attachment is extremely lightweight, a standard 15mm lens support is not needed.
All or our custom single focus anamorphic lenses include a non-rotating 58mm front filter thread for attaching any standard DSLR lens filter.
Our included custom follow focus gear allows for follow focus attachment and 360 degree focusing operation.
