Video: DIY Hasselblad XPan camera combines Hasselblad 500cm and anamorphic lens
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.

X-Pans are too damn expensive. So I built my own.
