Testing out the foton in daylight conditions. Footage of the rig is at the very end of the video. Apologies for the low res file. Lens has a very soft look but the compression takes away some of the sharpness, footage was edited at 1280x540 and took a big resolution-hit.

Footage is straight out of camera, no correction except for de-squeeze. Mostly shot from f3.5 to 5.6. White balance gets switched to daylight in the beginning.

Lens: Foton Anamorphic zoom 37-140mm f3.5 in PL mount
Camera: 5d Mark II, 24p, edited in prores 4444 1280x540
Support: Gini-rig, cavision balance bracket, manfrotto 503hdv head

I'm very impressed with the quality of the gini-rig for the price. The Foton alone weighs around 14 pounds and the rig held up nicely, also allowed for a very compact setup.
