The famous LOMO Anamorphic lenses are legendary for their personality. These lenses are praised for their quirky, horizontal lens flare and fantastic shallow depth of field. Anamorphics work by "squeezing" the standard image into a skinnier image frame on an applicable 4:3 capable camera (like the Arri Alexa Mini), then "expanding" the image in post to give you that amazingly epic 2.35:1 ratio. These lenses are in great shape for being 30+ years old, but know that they are not perfect (and that's why people love them!)
Our kit has a 35mm 3.5, 50mm 2.5, & 80mm 2.5 all with geared focus rings. We also include a 114mm diameter matte box adapter ring for the 50 & 85 and a 134mm diameter matte box adapter ring for the 35. This will allow the Lomos to be used with most standard matte boxes like our Wooden Camera UMB-1.
Due to the type of internal lubricant used in these lenses, they CANNOT be used in below zero temperatures. The lubricant will crystallize and bind the lenses. Make sure to test these lenses upon receipt. They are known to have certain quirks. If anything seems strange, please give us a call immediately and we can help troubleshoot.
