SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x 50 Anamorphic lens adapter is designed for cinematography and video. Increases image resolution and detail by squashing / compressing the image horizontally by a factor of 1.33x to allow maximum utilisation of the cameras' sensor. Anamorphic lenses therefore require subsequent stretching, in post-production or at projection. Intended for use with shooting at 16:9, bringing the intended output to a cinematic 2.35:1 wide format with a higher resolution than simply letter-boxing the image in camera. The lens features an adjustable dioptre for "sweet spot" adjustment controls on focus.
This SLR Magic anamorphic adapter also offers unique effects such as horizontal flare and streaks from light sources and ellipsoidal bokeh, for cinematographers wanting a characteristic filmic look. Depth of field is also affected, as in practice when using an anamorphic lens a longer focal length is required in order to achieve the same angle of view. Therefore anamorphic lenses produce a shallower, more cinematic depth of field than a the same lens without the adapter.
The adapter has a 77mm front filter thread and a native 62mm rear thread with a 58mm, 52mm, 49mm adapter rings provided. As such it is only suitable for lenses which have a front element size of 50mm or less.
Limitations of close focusing is helped with the use of dioptres which further enhances image resolution and sharpness on close / medium distance applications.
Setting up this angle of rotation is described here at 2:28 onwards in this video.

The Anamorphot-50 1.33x screws onto your lens's front, providing the classic anamorphic effect. Once screwed onto your lens, you use the screw locking ring to align and lock the Anamorphot. This SLR Magic anamorphic adapter offers specialist effects such as horizontal flare and streaks from light sources and ellipsoidal bokeh, for cinematographers wanting a characteristic filmic look. Depth of field is also affected, as in practice when using an anamorphic lens a longer focal length is required in order to achieve the same angle of view. Therefore anamorphic lenses produce a shallower, more cinematic depth of field than a the same lens without the adapter.
The Anamorphot 1.33x 50 features adjustable focus marked normal and near. The near adjustment allows you to focus on subjects closer than 2m away, setting the adapter to normal allows you to focus on subjects from 2m to infinity. The adapter has a 77mm front filter thread and a native 62mm rear thread. It mounts to lenses with a non-rotating front and a front thread diameter of 62mm. Three included step-up rings allow you to mount the Anamorphot onto lenses with 58, 52, or 49mm front thread diameter. SLR Magic recommends that the Anamorphot-50 1.33x be used with lenses that have a front element that is physically no larger than 50mm in diameter.
The Normal/Near adjustments ring allows you to fine-tune the focus of your lens for shooting subjects closer than 2m. It features a 77mm filter thread so you can attach optional filters, diopters, or the SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine for improved focus functionality.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the additional weight of the Anamorphot adapter and extra strain placed on the taking lens the use of of lens support is highly recommended / essential, particularly when using additional dioptres or on follow focus rigs. The alignment finger-screws require only fingertip tightening and loosening of one of the screws to secure the alignment.
