Following the success of SLR Magic’s ventures into affordable yet robust and high quality anamorphic lenses and adapters, they announced their new and latest edition to our product range the Anamorphot 1,33x-65 anamorphic adapter.
Taking feedback from professional users, along with their previous offerings, this new adapter accommodates lenses with a front element size of up to 65mm, and has a rear thread size of 82mm.
Because the adapter features an internal focus design, the overall housing maintains the same size while focusing and front diameter can accommodate any industry 114mm clamp-on matte box. Also, the addition of a front thread will allow the use of screw in filters and diopters.
This new larger size makes the 1,33x-65 adapter incredibly versatile and adaptable to a wide range of prime lenses and zooms, but still compact in size and form factor.
The adapter will work seamlessly with the newly released Micro Primes, but we are also proud to announce that we have collaborated with Fujifilm, and optimised this new adapter for their ever popular MK range of zooms, namely, the Fujinon MK 50-135mm T2.9. The adapter will mount directly to the Fujinon zoom as well as our Micro Primes with the 82mm thread specification. When mounted on a Fujinon MK 50-135mm, the integration of the adapter to lens appears like a singular unit.
Expensive and vintage lenses for anamorphic shooting has not always been reliable, nor has it yielded the best results. By combining anamorphic fundamentals, current technology and precision optics, our mission is to provide a reliable and available solution for anamorphic shooters with uncompromising quality.
Trying to achieve a true anamorphic “look” in post cannot be emulated or faked. By cropping a standard 16:9 aspect ratio using a spherical lens, it discards 25% resolution of the overall image. Using the SLR Magic 1,33x-65 will preserve all pixels from the sensor and give you 33% more optical resolution and field of view from the camera. Additionally, the close focus distance for the 1.33x-65 is 4 feet.
The SLR Magic Anamorphot 1,33x-65 has been manufactured to extend the accessibility of anamorphic shooting to a larger variety of camera and lens packages.
