Gravel Road into the Forest

Modern professional cinema cameras have large sensors capable of capturing an image in the 2.35:1and 2.66:1 format directly, using spherical lenses, but filmmakers still desire the anamorphic “look” which often limits them to using rare vintage lenses. These lenses present a number of difficulties in practice such as size, weight, availability, lack of close focus, and high price. We sought to overcome such issues with the SLR Magic Anamorphic.

The SLR Magic Anamorphot-40 1.33x works with lenses that have a front element physically no larger than 40mm in diameter. For full-frame sensors, We recommends that the Anamorphot-40 1.33x be used with 50mm or longer focal length lenses; it is compatible with select wider lenses when using S35 (35mm or longer) and Micro Four Thirds sensors (20mm or longer).

 

The Anamorphot-40 1.33x features adjustable focus marked normal and near. The near adjustment allows you to focus on subjects two feet away; setting the adapter to normal allows you to focus on subjects from three feet to infinity.

 

The Anamorphot-40 mounts to lenses with a non-rotating front and a 52mm front filter thread. This adapter is compatible with full-frame and APS-C camera sensors, and with both automatic and manual focus lenses.
