    The problem I see with these adapters is that they are too large and don't allow for wide-angles.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    And from what I've see, they don't hold up optically unless you shoot at an 8/11 split. There is a reason anamorphics are expensive.

    Hi Nick,
    I would agree on the point of not going wide.
    For this there is a solution in the works. Take a look at the first post: https://www.facebook.com/diehroptic/
    With John's optical single focus attachments, I could not see degredation in image performance.
    Regarding anamorphic projection lenses, I just shot a test with a Bolex Möller 8 on a R1 MX.
    Without single focus (yet) and I will take this as a basis for comparison when I put my single focus around it later on (Glass provided by John).

    Taken at f5.6 & f3.5
    For me the footage looked sharp enough in 4k and the aperture was far from f8.
    No offence though.
    cheers
    AleX

    Can someone explain to me why the video is 16:9? i think i'm missing something here.
    Thank you Red Team for unlocking/correcting the i/data technology. Cooke lenses are reading correctly and all his happy in Cooke/Epic land. Thanks!
