SLR Magic’s Anamorphot-Cine 1.33x lenses now shipping with revised specification
Lens manufacturer SLR Magic has announced 'significant' changes to the optical and mechanical specification of its Anamorphot-Cine 1.33x anamorphic lenses, which it says are now available. The lens set was first shown at IBC (the International Broadcasting Convention) at the end of last year, but the company says the latest versions have crucial differences – although they don’t say exactly what those differences are. SLR Magic says that the lenses can now be calibrated by lens technicians outside of Hong Kong.
The PL-mount anamorphics can be adapted to fit Canon EF, Sony E, Nikon F and Micro Four Thirds cameras, and will come in 35mm T2.4, 50mm T2.8 and 70mm T4 focal lengths. The 35mm lens covers Super 35mm, while the 50mm and 70mm are good for full frame cameras. The lenses are designed to stretch the 16:9 frame by 1.33x to create a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio so that filmmakers don’t need to crop off the top and bottom of their 4:3 footage.
Currently prices are only available in Hong Kong dollars, so the US prices shown are straight conversions using today’s exchange rate.
- SLR Magic ANAMORPHOT-CINE 35mm T2.4 HK$46,680/US$6008
- SLR Magic ANAMORPHOT-CINE 50mm T2.8 HK$50,550/US$6506
- SLR Magic ANAMORPHOT-CINE 70mm T4 HK$50,550/US$6506
A demonstration of the lenses' capabilities with the Panasonic GH4 and Sony a7S can be seen in the short film 'Feel' above. For more information about the company visit the SLR Magic website.
Hong Kong, China (Feb 22th, 2016) – SLR Magic is proud to announce the SLR Magic ANAMORPHOT-CINE 1.33x PL lens set for filmmakers which could be adapted to EF/F/mFT/E-mount via adapter. The production version has changed significantly in both optical and mechanical specification compared to the lenses shown at IBC 2015. For absolute precision, the lenses could now be calibrated by a lens technician from abroad rather than having both the camera and lenses to be calibrated in Hong Kong.
