>>>It is/will be designed to mount to a 35mm mount.<<< and project that anamorphic image on a GG !

Whatever the format you shoot, will be the same (3:4, 16:9)
The image will be squeezed though on that format.
Keep it up Aaron. Good idea.

Any further progress

Hi Aaron,

Haven't seen any new posting's on here for a while and was just wondering how you are progressing with the adapter?

Cheers

Robert

Yep things are progressing :).

It's taking a while as there are so many variables but I'm slowly getting there. I'll hopefully have some decent information to post by the end of the month.

Things are going well.

However, I'm putting this project on hold. With the new HVX200 and the uncertainty of the cheap 35mm market I'm going to bide my time for a while. I need money for a new HD camera after all and I can't afford to do both! ;)

Too bad you have to put this on hold.

By the way, have you seen my tests on the water prisms? (three threads down, currently)
I'm surprised, as you were when starting your project, that there aren't many people interested in anamorphics.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to hear you put it back -off- hold.

Thanks Oscar :). It's going to be as short a "hold" as possible. It's an area that I'm fascinated with (as you know!) so I very much enjoy working on it. But money speaks or so they say. Can't do everything at once when you're a poor student :(.

Aaron - what do you mean by "uncertainty of the market for cheap 35mm" - do you mean you are uncertain how much demand there will be for this type of product?

Well I'm still interested in an anamorphic adapter for these devices. My personal opinion is that a front mounted version is the way to go, but unfortunitly I don't know where to start. I wish there were existing optics that could be used in conjuction to provide this to an adapter, but it doesn't seem like it. How do the Panasonic, Century Optics, Optex models work? Do you think they all use custom glass or are they just using some type of esisting glass optics (cylinder lenses of some type)? Anyone have any input.

Dan Diaconu if you happen to see this, you mentioned somewhere in one of the threads you had used one of the 16:9 adapters right? Do you have any input into what type of glass these type of adapters use to squeeze the footage?

Aaron, somewhere you discribed how you might make your rear adapter, but i don't have it handy. There was a two lens set up and I was wondering what the purpose of the second element was?

This is the one I tried:

It seem happy with the 35/1.4 Nikkor as well (not only GL1 or 2) Might be used on other lenses too (I did not try it on the rest of the lenses though), but the advice on cinematography still applies (film, HD or image converters)

Brian that's a total shame. Was willing to buy one.

Dan that doesn't fit on the end of a 35mm rig though does it?

A 35mm rig starts with a 35mm lens. The front mount of these lenses are within "range" of the anamorphic. Even if not 58mm, there are adapters from 58 to what-have-you.

Do note that the "hold" is temporary ;).

Brian....er...I meant Aaron!!!

Aaron. The new Panasonic camera has a 16:9 chip. I doubt you'll find another market for a 16:9 lens outside of this one.

...unless your going for wider....
