Anamorphic shooting with the T4i?

So I saw that annoying RH-1 anamorphic lens april fool's joke.
I've scoured the net to no avail.

Is there some affordable way of shooting anamorphic with the T4i via adapter/lens? if so, what do you guys think would be the cheapest way to go that works?

Thanks for any info!

-Warner

Re: Anamorphic shooting with the T4i?

I think the least expensive easiest way to get an "anamorphic" screen aspect ratio, like, say, 2.4:1 is to shoot 16:9, "protect" 2.4:1 by making sure you're framing your shots for it, then crop in post.

One of the things that Magic Lantern offers is overlays in your monitor, so that you can see where you'll later crop, but you can do the same thing with a little bit of clear plastic, some scotch tape, and a sharpie. Only use the sharpie on the clear plastic...

Some would argue that this method loses vertical resolution by comparison to true anamorphic, and they'd be right. But, it's easy to get your feet wet with, costs hardly anything, and is entirely suitable for web distribution. Fact is, it can look pretty good.

Thanks Seth,

You know I was thinking the same thing. Just shooting everything much wider, and throwing black bars on the top and bottom. The thing is medium shots with a subject/blurred depth of field might be harder, I'm gonna give it a try. And thanks, I'll look into magic lantern.

I posted a link in here a little while ago that has since been deleted (I assume). Why that would be I have no idea.

in that case you could shoot at an angle to the subject to create more shallow DOF effect and free transform to 'correct' for the angled shot, then crop and voila; fake anamorphic with the DOF you were after.
