Finally after waiting for my lecia summilux to get fixed for 5 months by leica! It’s here and I am currently getting good results from this combination. I will begin shooting with this setup with Lin’s Docu and my future projects.

handheld anamorphic rig.


IMG 1492Tried my best to have the CG of the camera and lens resting on my shoulders.

GH2 + Zacuto EVF with iscorama focus regreased + lecia 50mm 1.4 asph, I must say the Zacuto EVF has really made me a fan of their products which I had previously though of as overpriced. It’s a dream for anamorphic shooters. However it would be nice to have the pixel 1:1 area ‘navigable’ .

reserviced and modified

Recently I have been a little obsessed and bugged with focusing pulls in films as a movement to reveal and guide the eye of the audience. In anamorphics since the DOF is so super shallow and has all sorts of exotic qualities to it which we can debate all day. The movement of focus has to be smooth draggy but so much that it causes stress on the camera and lens unit, which I have been encountering .

I have sent my 2 iscoramas focusing to be reoiled, and made smoother (less drag).  Kind of excited to test the results when I pick them up today

DSLRs and the sea. Not a good mix, but what the heck , add anamorphic on top of that.
