HD Anamorphic Filmmaking

We have added the ability to shoot in the true Anamorphic widescreen format for films and documentaries. Anamorphic is the cinematic format that is long-known in the film industry for a wider field of view, shallow depth of field, stretched bokeh, oval-shaped lens flare. To achieve this effect, an anamorphic lens or adapter is required. We purchased the Century Precision Optics 1.33X anamorphic 16:9 adapter, which along with the MJPEG anamorphic hack on the Panasonic GH2 HDSLR, will give us the ability to shoot video in native 1920×810 resolution 2.35:1 aspect ratio Anamorphic widescreen for that truly cinematic look.
