GH1 converted to anamorphic widescreen - footage!

I shot this with an anamorphic lens adapter this week:


Really pleased with the GH1 when it comes to anamorphic. Unique in the DSLR world - it has a 16:9 aspect ratio sensor, as well as allow 4:3 to fit in the frame. So if used for 4:3 photos you get a wider field of view by 33% and maintain the vertical height advantage. When used in 16:9 mode for movies you get true 2.35:1 widescreen out of it.

I love the look of anamorphics. It gives video such a cinematic feel. I enjoy positioning things in the frame, you have many more options and everything is exaggerated compared to 16:9 which now feels more like TV than cinema.

The lens I used, LA7200 was originally designed for the DVX100. Works great on the Canon 10-22mm lens at 14mm. Hope you enjoy the video!

Can you explain a little more of what mode your using here to get these wonderful videos? I guess I'm getting confused about what the 4:3 aspect ratio has to do with it. What video mode are you shooting in? And what sort of anamorphic adapter (and where did you get it) are you using on the lens? Thanks, the video does look phenomenal.

Great stuff thanks for sharing!:) COuld you post pics of your rig? I want to see how the anamorphic adapter gets attached to the lens you are using and the size of the whole thing. Also, can you Zoom thru a bit or can only shoot full wide? Thanks a lot:)
