Seb Farged had the chance to film with the new Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic lens on the Panasonic GH4. He wrote:
It’s a very sharp lens working great with some of my primes. It’s a single focus lens (you do the focus on it and let the prime on infinity).
In this movie you will see different shots done with :
GH4 4K uhd (no CC) 24p
Lumix 20mm f1.7 btw f1.7 and f4
Pentax-m 40mm pancake f2.8 at f4
Sicor-XL MC 28mm f2.8 at f5.6
Despite the fact the Pentax-m 40mm is less wider than the others, I like the result with it.
I’ve used a Dorr variable ND lens, on the GH4 the picture mode is on « portrait » with slight ajustments.
I did no color corrections at all.
I will do some test on full frame camera later.
Thanks for watching.
