My buddy Gabe and I went out with his 5dmk2 and tried out a new anamorphic adapter. We shot on a 50mm Zeiss lens with the Panasoinc AG-LA 7200 anamorphic adapter. After some trial and error we found the sweet spot for shooting through this type of device. Focus can be tricky but for our particular lens it stayed sharp at an F-stop of 5.6.
The Star Wars gag in the beginning was just a joke...while I was on the beach I could hear the music of Luke watching the sun(s) set.
We also messed around with anamorphic lens flares with some cool results.
This is true anamorphic, we did not crop the image.
*This video was squeezed in Compressor to 2.35-1. For this adapter this is not the right squeeze. The image needs to be 2.4-1. Here is a link to the same video but with the right squeeze. vimeo.com/15033901
