Our friend Seb farges made the new video yous ee on top: “I’ve found on Ebay for 41€ a Berthiot anamorphic 2X lens. I have attached it to a C-mount Fujian 35mm 1.7 with a ring and scotch tape (The lens is in Stock here on eBay ). The result is, at my opinion, very sharp, event @ the 1.7 Fujian aperture I’ve always have on this movie. When I put it on the Fujian, the picture goes wider, maybe going from 35mm to 16mm. I do not use ETC at all, and there’s a very light light vignetting. I’ve streched it with Premiere in post production with the “transformation effect” with 50 scale height, it seems to be the good ratio (2x lens = 2.66:1 format). This ratio is like this because it’s a 2X on a 16/9 720P. I’ll try on the 4/3 VGA Anamorphic hacked GH1 next time, the ratio will be look more like a regular 2.66.

Have you heard about the 4/3 to m4/3 adapter by Viltrox? Me not! But one of our readers sent us the link to those adapters: http://www.viltrox.com/index.php?c=msg&id=148

pt4pano developed a special adapter for MFT-Cams to take full spheric panoramas. Look here, here and here.

    What is this meme, where women gives the video camera the middle finger? (around 00:29) I don’t get that. Is it because women are treated like objects so much, that it’s a push back? It’s a way to say “I’m not an object” or is it just because we man are often pushing a camera in their face? Any rate, I find it cliched and it put me off the video. Nice music and interesting lens, though.

    • My pseudo ex girlfriend is like that 😉

        lol

      Why do you call exasperation a meme? Have you no social experience? She’s tired of having a camera pointed at her.

      • WT21

        Less criticism for her action, more for the editing that chose to include it. And it’s pretty cliched at this point.

  • A useful comment from Alan about this Berthiot 2X anamorphic lens :
    “you have the smallest hypergonar lens ever made and one of the last designs of the great french man. Professor Henri Chrétien signed over the rights to his fantastical optical invention Hypergonar to Twentieth Century-Fox in 1952,he was legally bound not to develop commercial scope lens or work with any other studios. or sell the optics commercially. This beauty was the only tiny amateur cinemascope lens he could legally make and could only be sold in france and her colonies 🙁
    it was made for amateur standard 8mm film cameras.
    his friends at the Société technique d’Optique et de Photographie (s.t.o.p). At first said it was impossible to scale a cinemascope lens down to this size,and make a usable system. Chrétien went too work and made this tiny gem a beauty. A work of genius.In the late 70s early 80s a supply of spare lens where found and and added too fuji single 8 plastic pocket size film cameras many of these lens would have been thrown in the dustbin in the late 1980s with the standard 8 and single 8 cameras,with the rise rise of video : ( so are now quite rare. i am glad the lens has gone home too france : )”
    “Me too ! :)”

    I’m still waiting for underwater housing for E-P3 (from any company). Why i cannot take my Oly underwater… i don’t understand Olympus?!?!? It doesn’t make sens that they made housing for E-PL3 and E-PM1 and not for E-P3…

  • Brod1er

    Not sure how well the gf2/3 will work in a housing given they are primarily designed to be controlled through the touch screen? I would be interested if the price is sensible (a first for underwater photography!?)
