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 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 Anamorphot.
SLR Magic Anamorphot
1.33x-65 Anamorphic Adapter
1.33x - 65 Adapter
The compact SLR Magic Anamorphot-65 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter is designed to work with lenses with a front element size of up to 65mm in diameter. This 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter sports a rear thread size of 82mm and features an internal focus design. The Anamorphot-65 has a minimum close focus of four feet and can accept 112mm threaded filters and diopters.
The Anamorphot-65 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter is optimized to work with the Fujinon MK zoom range and is also compatible with 82mm-threaded SLR Magic MicroPrimes. Unlike a cropped "anamorphic" image obtained with a spherical lens, this adapter enables you to utilize the total area of your camera's sensor, so there is no loss in resolution when compared with cropping your image.
