Modern professional cinema cameras offer large sensors capable of directly capturing images in the cinematic 2.35:1 and 2.66:1 formats using spherical lenses. However, filmmakers often crave the distinctive anamorphic "look," leading them to resort to rare vintage lenses. These vintage lenses come with practical challenges including size, weight, availability, limited close focus capabilities, and high costs. To address these issues, we set out to innovate with the SLR Magic Anamorphic lens.

SLR Magic 2x - 50

Anamorphic Adapter

When using a 4:3 sensor that captures images with an aspect ratio around 1.33:1, achieving a more cinematic 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio traditionally involves post-cropping—an approach that results in resolution loss and potential image degradation.


In contrast, the Anamorphot 2.0x horizontally squeezes the image, producing the iconic tall and narrow visual characteristic of anamorphic footage. This squeezed image must undergo "de-squeezing" in post-production. By utilizing the anamorphic process, you capture the entire sensor image, eliminating resolution loss compared to the cropping method.


The Anamorphot-50 includes adjustable focus settings labeled as normal and near. The near setting permits focusing on subjects closer than roughly 26 feet, while selecting the normal setting enables focus on subjects from about 26 feet to infinity. This adapter is compatible with lenses featuring a non-rotating front element and 62mm front thread diameter.


Ensuring a wide range of lens compatibility for enhanced creative flexibility. When coupled with full-frame sensors, it is recommended to match the Anamorphot-50 2.0x with lenses having a focal length of 75mm or longer, ideal for maximizing the anamorphic effect and image quality on these lenses.

For S35 sensors, a focal length of 50mm or longer is suggested when using the Anamorphot-50 2.0x to achieve optimal results tailored to this sensor size. Similarly, for Micro Four Thirds sensors, lenses with a focal length of 35mm or longer are recommended to ensure compatibility and the desired anamorphic output for this specific sensor format.
