Details

Looking for that classic, cinematic, vintage ANAMORPHIC look? Well, these are the real deal. These rare vintage SQUARE FRONT anamorphic lenses are from the late 60s and early 70s but they've been exceptionally maintained. I consistently get the feedback from every client that these are "THE BEST SET IN LOS ANGELES" for these hard-to-find beauties! Other vendors on here sometimes claim to have a full set of legitimate square fronts but they won't give you consistent matched images since some have round fronts in their sets they claim are square fronts. Round front anamorphics don't have the same flare characteristics and bokeh you want from these vintage anamorphics which is why SQUARE fronts (where the anamorphic element is in the front of the lens) are the way to go! Get all the optically natural horizontal lens flares and character, the painterly vertical blur and bokeh, and soften your HD image just enough to make it look stunningly like 35mm FILM! You will see images more dramatic than any sort of round-front anamorphic out there. These blow the newer round-front lenses out of the water in terms of aesthetic and overall vintage feel!!! The lens set offers a 35mm, 50mm, and 80mm with a set of FOUR diopters that work on the 80mm only! I've shot an entire film on just these lenses (only used a longer lens for ONE shot because this was more than enough). [MUST READ BELOW] **** IMPORTANT USAGE NOTES: **** ****These lenses are extremely rare and I am ADAMANTLY opposed to them being used in conditions involving SAND, above or near WATER, or any area where there may be DUST STORMS etc. Any grit / sand that gets into these lenses will be detrimental to the lens and has resulted in months out of service and thousands of dollars in cleaning/rebuilding services. If you are planning to use the lenses in such conditions you MUST notify me and obtain APPROVAL IN WRITING, IN ADVANCE *AND* provide a full DEDUCTIBLE DEPOSIT **** **** YOU MUST NOT BE USING THESE LENSES ABOVE, IN, OR NEAR BODIES OF WATER WITHOUT PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF LENS OWNER. If you are planning to use the lenses in such conditions you MUST notify me and obtain APPROVAL IN WRITING, IN ADVANCE *AND* provide a full DEDUCTIBLE DEPOSIT **** ***There have been some issues with specifically the newer Alexa Mini's mount with operating the 80mm lens only due to the vintage build of this lens. Please exercise caution using this and know that you may have difficulty focusing to infinity on that lens with a particular Alexa Mini setup. All three lenses work perfectly with the RED camera systems and standard Alexa.**** **** IMPORTANT RED CINEMA USAGE NOTE: Do NOT under any circumstances use the 35mm lens in this set with the RED PL **MOTION** MOUNT. The lenses have deep lens mounts and will damage both the MOUNT AND THE LENSES. This warning *ONLY* applies to the "MOTION" mount and NOT to any standard RED PL mounts (Magnesium and Titanium mounts work beautifully on all three lenses)*** <focus marks in metric>
