And finally the Anamorphic lens tests are up.
In this first clip, you’ll see both the Lomo’s and the Hawk anamorphics pointing at the same scene. I was interested in how they’d handle veiling flare, so you’ll see the first setup starts pointing at a very hot window of glass bricks. Then I move outside into direct sun with some focus pulls though to infinity and back, again to look how the breathing of the lens looks and also, how the out of focus areas are looking. I was especially interested in seeing if there were any differences between the 2X squeeze of the Lomos and the 1.3X of the Hawks We shot RED EPIC @ 5K.
Now, this clip might put some of you to sleep, but for some, I know it will be pure heaven. In this brutal clip, you’ll see just how wacky anamorphics can be ! Each lens is shot at three different apertures, and you’ll see how much this affects the lens performance, especially the Lomos. The Lomos are especially soft when wide open !
