Cinematographer Casey Cavanaugh of GxAce has published a video detailing the creation of his own Hasselblad XPan, a DIY camera he calls the GX-Pan. "I always wanted an XPan, the anamorphic dream," Cavanaugh narrates in his video. "But it has always been out of my reach, so I built my own."

The DIY GX-Pan features a custom machined adapter design to mount an anamorphic lens onto a Hasselblad 500cm camera. "What makes this better than an XPan, in my opinion, is that it gives a true anamorphic widescreen image," Cavanaugh explains. Viewers are given both technical details and brief looks at the creation process.

Cavanaugh's work can be found on his personal website, Flickr, and Instagram.
