Our friend Jon Fauer has posted a video shot by the folks at Servicevision in Barcelona, demonstrating their new anamorphic lenses. The footage shows the 35mm, 75mm and 100mm at T2 and T2.8, and was shot with an Alexa. (The AC, by the way, is very good at those wide open stops.)
The 35mm doesn’t appear to have much distorsion, and the lenses look clean wide open, but the thing that struck me the most were the bokehs, which were pleasing but more spherical than the ellipses I’m used to.
I look forward to seeing these lenses projected on a big screen.
I will be very interested to see the other lenses. Servicevision has announced a series of 14 lenses, ranging from 20mm to 300mm.
