SLR Magic has announced a new anamorphic adaptor that is optimised for the Fujinon MK zoom range of lenses but is also compatible with other lenses that have an 82mm front filter thread.
- 1.33x Anamorphic Squeeze
- For up to 65mm Front Diameter Lenses
- Mounts to Lenses with 82mm Front Thread
- 114mm Front Diameter
- Internal Focus Design
- 4′ Close Focus Distance
- Accepts 112mm Filters
SLR Magic make a number of anamorphic prime lenses but no zoom anamorphic lenses so they aimed to create an adaptor for the Fujinon MK zoom lenses. The adaptor works through-out the range of the MK 50-135 but only from 30mm on the MK 18-55. While it is optimised for the Fujinon MK lenses, the adaptor can work with other lenses as long as the front glass element is no larger than 65mm like SLR Magic’s MicroPrimes.
Unlike a cropped “anamorphic” image obtained with a spherical lens, this adapter enables you to utilize the total area of your camera’s sensor.
The adaptor has a close focus of four feet and can use 112mm filters for diopters. The adaptor itself has a focus ring and should be set to the same focal distance as the lens.
The SLR Magic Anamorphot-65 Adaptor will retail for USD $1,499 and is expected to be available at the end of June.
