First time shooting anamorphic. Experimenting w/ a Telex 16-D, that I picked up for $65, and a Nikon 50 1.8 on a Panasonic GH2. Just recently received my Helios 44m. Hope to play w/ it soon.

Thanks Paul! I think I've seen some of your work. I believe we have some mutual acquaintances. Great stuff. It's fun to shoot w/ the anamorphic just because of the look, but I haven't mastered the art of getting the lens aligned quickly. The end result is worth it, but mounting it can be a pain. I probably should've sprung for the more expensive Redstan clamps. I'd love to see what you do w/ the BMPCC when you get it!

ISHICO Proskar Anamorphic 16B  Helios 44M-2 Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. Not the sharpest combo - it was what I could fit together quick and easily, but it I think it turned out pretty nicely.

BE A PART OF OUR MOVIE! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ericlatek/auggie-and-the-byrd Not looking to approach a kickstarted campaign video in the traditional way, we decided to make a short film for the pitch instead. Everyone in front of the camera is just my family, as well as myself, which is a scary thing to watch. The Kickstarter Pitch is for a feature film entitled "Auggie & The Byrd". www.ericlatek.com

Hahaha....love the movie. Great acting by the kid (your son?!), and great seeing you in front of the camera this time. The wrestling part really made me laugh and the ending was hilarious also. Hope your kickstarter campaign gets lots of support.

Yes, the vertical ovals are a key visual effect of anamorphic lenses. I hope the lens is pass through focus and gives a 2.35-2.40 on a 16:9 sensor.

+Eric Latek yes I figure all cameras are flawed / not perfect.

One revelation to me was meeting a professional camera crew operating pro cinema lenses on a RED a few years ago. They had everything could ever dream about but at the same time I didn't want so slow workflow and heaving to be that careful about expensive heavy gear.

I know a lot of people wasn't happy about the pocket mostly because they expected a perfect camera but I expected all the flaws Philip Bloom had described, and they fixed some of them before I got mine (highlight blooming and black sun) so I figure I got a much better camera than I've ordered :-)

So very happy to get sharp images and easy grading (and not having to bother about the painful ML raw2dng for great images). The BMPCC is far from perfect, but it is a small package which addresses all main weaknesses of the 5DmkII which were making me crazy. ML raw really showed me what I had strong reasons to suspect a long time, Canon H.264 really destroys perfectly focused shots. I'll probably still use the 5DmkII for live handheld events at festivals, because I need rugged and I need to be able to take photos too.

A music video I filmed earlier this year has made the list of top ten hip hop videos of 2013 (hiphopsite.com). I filmed with Red Epic X and Hawk anamorphics.

The following is a moment captured in the feature documentary “TIGER”.
Shot on July 21, 2013, 21 days after Gary’s accident. Gary was unable to talk, and doctors were not sure if he would ever be able to speak or breath on his own.

Shooting with Epic Red, 50mm anamorphic lens, I framed up a side shot of Gary and Chrissy, and captured an endearing moment of love and happiness in the midst of a tragic situation.

A New Era of ROCKY has begun! One of the shots captured last week filming Gary Balletto and Christina Balletto for "TIGER".  Spherical Lenses, Over-Used Shallow Depth Field could never capture such a moment of beauty. Anamorphic creates magic!  Nov. 8th the Trailer for TIGER will be released.  A story that is over a decade in the making.

Are the lomos mentioned first a complete lens with one of those OCT-xx mounts? Or are they front mounted anamorphics too?

Overture:
Overture is a pure visual meditation. While spending some time in Sedona, I was able to film at various vortexes and capture, not only the magical landscapes, but the incredible textures of the land. The practice for me was to take in my surroundings and try to go with the flow of where I was filming.  This allowed me to be in the moment and truly appreciate my time. Vistas such as this deserve nothing but anamorphic treatment. Because with anamorphic, you not only are able to frame the bigger picture, but create a dream-like feel on the smaller elements.
