Andrew Chan from SLR Magic told us everything you need to know about their new generation of cinematic anamorphic lenses and anamorphic lenses in general.
Besides explaining the advantages of shooting anamorphic Chan also goes into detail about how SLR Magic started from anamorphic adaptors to SLR Magic’s very own line of anamorphic lenses, which we talked about earlier this week and they are pesenting at IBC 2015.
There will be two lineups: 133 Lenses and 2x Lenses. The 2x lens line-up currently has a micro 4/3 mount, which works perfectly with the GH4’s 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Chan explains that customers at IBC have requested a PL Mount version of the 2x Lens line and SLR Magic will consider this request.
Here are the prices for SLR Magic’s anamorphic lenses:
Anamorphic 35mm T/2.4 – $2500
Anamorphic 50mm T/2.8 – $3000
Anamorphic 75mm T/4 – $3000
Buy all three lenses and you will get the package for $7000 ($1500 saving).
The new anamorphic lenses by SLR Magic will be available by the end of the year.
