Anamorphic video test by Seb Farges.


LisboAnamorphic in CinemascopE from Seb Farges on Vimeo.

Our friend Seb Farges posted another nice video using the GH2 with the tiny Berthiot anamorphic 2X lens and the C-mount Fujian 35mm f/1.7 lens. Well done Seb! Also Andre Reid from EosHD is a big fan of anamorphic lenses. And you should absolutely check his newly written EOSHD Panasonic GH2 Shooter’s Guide!

P.S.: Search links for the Berthiot anamorphic 2X on eBay (Click here) and for the C-mount Fujian on eBay (Click here).

    yeah great style, its very wide format! what are the actual dimensions when recording and playback?

    • Because it is recorded in 16/9 AVCHD mode, with the 2X anamorphic, that’s why the black bars are so big. It should be better in 4/3 mode (VGA), but AVCHD has a better rendering, even with the “anamorphic hack”. There it’s like a 3.55:1 eq of 1920X540, and in 4/3 mode it could gives a 2.66:1 eq. of 1920X720.

    Amazing video, extraordinary soundtrack, but I’m very biased, this is the city I live in!
    :) :) :)

    • Thanks Duarte, I do appreciate, especially from a Lisboner ! ;)

  • Jan de Wit

    Just bought the book, seems like a great book. Since I am only a video noob at this moment.

  • Mr. Reeee

    Nice. More great work from Seb… as always. Makes me want to go to Lisbon!
    AND get one of those lenses!

    • Thanks Mr. Reeee :) Lisbon is such a nice and cinematic city !
