Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm delving back into this project seriously now. Designs are ready, I'm just looking around at my options for producing a beta model without spending too much. Things are really starting to fall together over on this side. I'm tempted to give a rough date for actual footage but I'll hold off as I know how the best plans can go down the tube quickly.

Brian! Sorry that I missed your post! It's quite old now and maybe of no use but I'll answer in hopes that it may be benefitial to someone.

To be entirely honest, I am not fully sure why the lomo lenses have different adapters for different lenses. I'm not entirely sure how their system is implemented though - they seem to be rather old in design so perhaps they had to make a compromise somewhere down the line? If I remember correctly these adapters were all made for zoom lenses right? I suspect that might have something to do with it. In any case, this adapter should work with any prime or zoom you put on the camera. That's one thing that I need to test completely. Still, I've taken every precaution I can think of so there shouldn't be any problems. Zooms could, again, be problematic though I have no direct reason to believe so. Time will tell.

Hey Aaron - good to hear from you again. Actually, now I (and many of our customers) are more interested in an anamorphic that works with 35mm SLR lenses, like nikon

What do you think?

We'll see how the test version goes first!

Actually, Nikon is what I based the current system on simply because I have access to a fair number of these lenses. It shouldn't be too hard to modify for, say, Canon FD, for example, either.
