The SLR Magic Anamorphot-Cine 2x 50mm T2.8 MFT is a budget-friendly anamorphic lens for Micro 4/3 cameras and camcorders. Key features include:
Single focus point
Advanced optical design for high-quality images
Manual focus and aperture rings for precision adjustments
Single Focus Point. To get anamorphic on a budget, you typically have to use a two-step process with an adapter and a spherical taking lens. The SLR Magic Anamorphot-Cine lens combines everything into one unit. This simplifies your setup—you no longer have to line up your optics to get the squeeze right or worry about whether your lens is too wide to support the adapter. And, most importantly, focus is simplified to a single control mechanism, meaning you can actually pull and rack focus within a scene.
2x Squeeze. This lens is ideally suited for pairing with the Panasonic GH4 and its 4:3 anamorphic mode to create a 2.66:1 aspect ratio. On regular 16:9 sensors, it creates an ultra-wide 3.54:1 aspect ratio. So if you want to go extra wide with your composition, these are the lenses for you.
High-Quality Multi-Coated Optics. Its custom optical components support high-resolution sensors, while the lens coating provides elegant flaring.
Fully Manual. This lens provides no electronic communication with the camera. You must make all aperture and focus adjustments manually on the lens itself. The aperture you select won’t be displayed on the camera, and it won’t show up in the EXIF data.
