Anamorphot

SLR Magic have launched the Anamorphot 1.33x 50 anamorphic adapter. 

To achieve the much loved 2.35:1 scope aspect ratio, (which gives a pleasant, epic effect) filmmakers must crop the top and bottom of standard 16:9 footage when using spherical lenses with modern digital cameras. As a result, 25% of sensor / negative information is discarded.

As a commitment to the film industry, SLR Magic developed this 1.33x anamorphic adapter to help filmmakers maximize image quality by preventing this loss of vertical resolution. The unique 1,33x squeeze factor uses the entire 16:9 sensor / negative area to achieve the desired 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The Anamorphot 1.33x – 50 does this by compressing a 33% wider field of view to fit the width of the 16:9 sensor / negative without compressing image height.

Modern professional cinema cameras have large sensors capable of capturing an image in the 2.35:1 format directly, using spherical lenses, but film makers 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, lack of close focus, availability, and high price.  SLR Magic sought to overcome such issues with the SLR Magic Anamorphot.

Additionally, SLR Magic have launched the SLR Magic 77mm Achromatic Diopter Set (+0.33, +1.3) specifically designed for use with our anamorphic adapter.

Both products will be available in late March 2014. The Anamorphot 1.33x 50 adapter will cost £749, and the Achromatic diopter set £249.
