The famous LOMO Anamorphic lenses are legendary for their personality. These lenses are praised for their horizontal lens flare, quirky lens flares, 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.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: The focus ring on the 35mm lens is a bit tight, DO NOT use a motorized follow focus with the 35 mm lens or you might strip the gears on the follow focus.
