I recently purchased a new anamorphic adapter for DSLRs on ebay. Since good cheap anamorphic lenses are scarce, I thought I'd share my initial experiences and test footage. Frankly, I wasn't sure how well this thing would work when I ordered it... I was willing to take a chance and the Apefoscope didn't let me down. This simple adapter gets the job done.
Test footage was shot with my hacked GH2 and a few prime lenses identified in the video. Aside from changing the footage to the 1.33 aspect ratio, none of the footage was altered.
Extra Notes: One of the shots with the Canon FD 24mm was at a 1 foot focus distance(the sink shot with water dripping). Unlike most anamorphics, the focus distance is really good with this thing.
