USING WIDE ANGLE CONVERTERS IN FRONT OF THE CINEMORPH WILLALLOW YOU TO HAVE A WIDER FIELD OF VIEW WHEN NEEDED
Some zoom lenses will work but they'll need to have smaller fronts. Forinstance, the Canon70mm-200mm lens on the Full Frame Canon 5D will NOT work with the CineMorph filter at ranges wider thanapprox200mm because thefront lens element is too large and can't shoot through the bokeh element in the filter.
Also as with real anamorphic lenses, the ideal SLR lenses to use are the older Canon, Nikon,M42 Mount (Russian or Japanese) lenses that have the smaller 49mm to 62mm front filterdiameters. 50mm f1.8, 85mm f2, 100mm f2.8, 135mm f2.8 have given some of the very bestresults.
The Helios 58mm f2 with the CineMorph filter is an affordable and fast speed aperture lens.These types of older lenses are fun, sharp, well built and much more affordable than newerlenses.
MORE ABOUT THE CINEMORPH FILTER:
Anamorphic lens looks, without using an Anamorphic lens!
Stray from the look of modern clinical SLR lenses!Our filters create a little charm and charisma. A subtle aesthetic that really stands apart from the crowd!
The CineMorph filters will NOT stretch or squeeze to create an anamorphic image. It keeps the image at 16:9 and you can crop in post at any ratio you choose to your liking!
It mimics characteristics of anamorphic lenses such as flares,streaks and vertically stretched waterfall bokeh, our favorite characteristic!
It's very easy to use and allows you to pull focus on your compatible SLR lenses, unlike real anamorphic combinations. This is a HUGE plus as shooting with real anamorphic attachments requires you to focus both the anamorphic lens and the taking lens (SLR, DSLR or Cinema Lens), making run-n-gun filming almost impossible.
This filter is great for when you need those selective shots that require focus-pulling or rack focusing.
It is mounted on to a smooth rotating filter for easy alignment and assembled with sharp optical glass that won't dull the image. The CineMorph filters have the option to remove the glass completely if/when needed.We recommend fast speed lenses (f0.95 to f2.8) and keeping the lenses wide open. The Flare/Streak Filters will not introduce light loss.
The filter's back-end size will match the front end size.You can add Fader, Polarizer and or ND filters by stacking if/when needed.
Also, wide-Angle Converters stacked in front of the CineMorph will allow you to achieve a wider field of view if / when needed.
Q:Do you have just a Flare Filter without the Anamorphic Oval Bokeh?
A:Yes, see our Flare / Streak Filter.
Q:What are some lenses that you would recommend for use with the CineMorph on my DSLR?
A: A few recommended camera and lens combinations for use with the CineMorph Anamorphic Looks Filters:
- For Crop sensor cameras (Canon t3i, 7D, Nikon D90, Sony NEX, Panasonic GH4, Black Magic Cameras, etc.) use a basic 50mm f1.8 lens or tighter focal length.
- For Full Frame sensor cameras (Canon 5D, 6D or Nikon D810, D750, Leicas, etc.) use a fun and very affordable Helios 58mm f2.0 lens or tighter focal length like a Nikon or Jupiter 85mm f2.0 lens.
Converters for mounting older Russian and Nikon lenses onto various cameras can be found easily and affordably on ebay, amazon and other camera shops.
Q. What's the difference between the 77mm vs the 58mm CineMorph filter? Can I use the 77mm version on smaller front lenses?
A. It's good to try and match the front size as somewhat close to the 2 sizes we offer (58mm or 77mm). If you go with too large of a filter with a smaller front compatible SLR lens what happens is that the top and bottom of any oval bokeh shapes could be slightly cut off. It'll still stretch the bokeh vertically and you'll still get the streaks and flares but the bokeh and light shaping might not always be perfectly oval.
This also happens with real anamorphic lens combinations as well. So it's an authentic characteristicof shooting with anamorphics. If you don't mind the cropped oval shapes on certain lenses, then go with the 77mm filter and a step-up ring.
The main reason the 58mm is the more "universal" version isbecausemost lenses out there that play nicely with anamorphics and our filters, have smaller front sizes.
