SLR Magic SLRA50-1.33X77RFWM Overview

This B&H kit brings together the SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 1.33x adapter with the SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine focusing adapter provides you with an easy-to-use anamorphic option to expand your creative horizons. The anamorphic adapter creates images with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio when used with cameras that have a 16:9 sensor. This allows you to create the widescreen effect without cropping and use the full resolution of your 16:9 sensor.

Adding an anamorphic adapter to the front of your lens results in compromises, one of these compromises is that when pulling focus, you must simultaneously adjust the focus on both the lens and on the adapter. The Rangefinder Cine mounts to your anamorphic adapter, and it allows you to pull focus by using only the Rangefinder Cine. It mounts on lenses and adapters that have a 77mm front filter thread, and it has an integrated cine-style focus gear allowing it to interface with a wide variety of cine-style focus accessories.

SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter

The SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter allows you to expand your creative horizons, enabling you to capture footage with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio on your camera with a 16:9 sensor. This results in an image that out of the camera will look distorted, as if your subjects were stretched taller and thinner than normal. This is easily corrected in post with virtually any modern NLE, creating an image suitable for viewing on wide-screen.

The Anamorphot-50 features adjustable focus marked normal and near. The near adjustment allows you to focus on subjects closer than 6.5' away; setting the adapter to normal allows you to focus on subjects from 6.5' to infinity. 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.

A 16:9 sensor records an image with an aspect ratio of approximately 1.78:1, and if you want to convert that to a more cinematic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 you could crop your image in post. However, this leads to a loss in resolution and image degradation. The Anamorphot 1.33x squeezes the image horizontally, which creates the classic tall / thin image that must be "de-squeezed" in post. The anamorphic process allows you to capture your image using your entire sensor, so there is no loss in resolution when compared with cropping your image.
The Anamorphot-50 1.33x screws onto your lens's front, providing the classic anamorphic effect. Once screwed onto your lens, you use the push/pull locking ring to align and lock the Anamorphot-50.
The Normal/Near adjustments ring allows you to fine-tune the focus of your lens for shooting subjects closer than 6.5'.
It features a 77mm filter thread so you can attach optional filters, diopters, or the SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine for improved focus functionality.

SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine Adapter (Calibrated in Feet)

Made to greatly simplify the process of focusing with anamorphic adapters, this SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine Adapter provides a calibrated focus scale, marked in feet, industry standard focus direction, and a cine-style focus gear for your lens set up. When using most anamorphic adapters that mount to the front of your lens, focusing requires matching the distance on the anamorphic adapter and the lens itself; this can cause problems when trying to pull focus. However, when using the Cine Rangefinder, you set both your anamorphic adapter and lens to infinity and pull focus on the rangefinder.

You can use the Rangefinder Cine Adapter to provide accurate focus markings, and using the adapter minimizes the appearance of lens breathing. It mounts to lenses with 77mm front filter threads, and you can use optional step-down rings for lenses with smaller front threads. The adapter integrates a cine-style focus gear, allowing it to easily interface with a variety of optional focus accessories. It allows you to focus your lens or lens/anamorphic adapter combination from 3.5' to infinity.

Works with SLR Magic Anamorphot adapters (1.33x50 and 2x50) to provide single gear ring focusing.
You can use the Cine Rangefinder on lenses without an anamorphic adapter as well. This is useful when working with lenses such as Nikons, which focus in the opposite direction from cine-style lenses, or when using lenses that have neither focus gear nor reliable distance markings.
Using the adapter allows you to minimize the effects of breathing that your lens or lens / adapter combination would ordinarily suffer from.
Once your taking lens is properly set to infinity, the focus distances on the adapter (marked in feet) are accurate and repeatable.
The adapter provides your lens with a focus range of 3.5' to infinity. Even if your lens or lens and anamorphic adapter combination by themselves do not focus as close as 3.5', using the adapter brings the minimum focus distance to 3.5'
The front 82mm filter threads of the adapter rotate as you pull focus on it. This may cause unwanted optical effects when using filters such as star or polarizers.

So far so good

It does effectively what it is made to do. I haven’t had much time to test it yet but it works really well from what I can see and is a good price point for an anamorphic adapter including the range finder. I need to do some production work with it to really test it properly but from what I can see it works well. Some vignetting of full frame cameras but switched to APS-C the image looks great. 50mm and up seem to work the best from initial viewing but I need to test it on 24/35 native voigtlander or equivalent lenses to see. If you need to shoot anamorphic and don’t have the budget for real lenses this seems to be a good option. Will update once used more.

Fantastic

We understand what this adapter does to the image, the squeeze on the picture and the flares and all, so then what's really to discuss here is the practicality of using this on a set. Considering the anamorphot adapter requires focus adjusting in addition to the taking lens, it's rather impossible to shoot any sort of complex cinema without the rangefinder. One cannot pull or push focus on two elements simultaneously at any level of efficiency - if it's discovered that this is in fact a practice on any set, then the cinematographer deserves both and award and a slap on the head. You see, if the adapter and the taking lens are both pushed to infinity focus, then the rangefinder takes over focusing responsibilities, thus making it possible to use a standard geared focus system to push and pull. Then, the issue becomes finding a taking lens that can maintain a proper relationship with the anamorphot+rangefinder. It appears that unless using an SLR Magic brand taking lens, the quality of results will vary. The rangefinder includes instructions on how to dial in the perfect focus using any lens other than one of the SLR Magic brand (assuming that lens is of the smaller diameter), though such is to be practiced with discretion. Apparently not all "other brand" lenses match perfectly with the anamorphot+rangefinder. To properly dial in focus, one should apply the anamorphot and the rangerfinder to their taking lens of choice, push the taking lens and anamorphot to infinity, and then focus the rangefinder to exactly four feet away from the sensor of the camera. Here, final focus adjustments to the taking lens are to be made, to achieve perfect focus. Then, so long as the taking lens focus does not move, the rangefinder can take over. Understand that with SLR Magic lenses, this extra step may not be necessary. Perhaps there's other alternatives, but for the price, this is a legitimate option. Be prepared to baby your rig, but the results pay off.

Would this work well with the Sigma 45mm f2.8 E-mount lens if I put a step up ring on it?
Asked by: Levi
"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." This is all well and good however, no lens manufacturer ever lists that dimension. So it is a matter of guesswork as to the efficacy of the SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 1.33x on the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN. I am of the opinion that it might work. However, testing is the only way to make sure. At B&H, we like the customer to make the final decision. At B&H, you have a 30 day return period for most items, including this one. Please save all packaging for that time and also see our return guidelines. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/HelpCenter/ReturnExchange.jsp

Does anyone know if this will work with a vintage Nikkor AI 85mm with 52mm filter thread; on a Sony A7III? Am I understanding it will effectively be a 63.9mm lens?
Asked by: Kyle
That will depend on the diameter of the lens you have. The Anamorphot-50 1.33x can be used with a lens that has a front element that is physically no larger than 50mm in diameter. A 52mm filter adapter is included, it will just be a matter of if the diameter of the lens is proper.

Asked by: Kirill
We're afraid not. In this case the most important aspect is that this adapter only works with lenses between the focal lengths of 40-85mm on a Full Frame Camera. The adapter would not physically fit on these lenses either.

So if my fujinon lens has a 62mm thread on the front (for filters) it should be fine right?
Asked by: Lee
That will depend on the lens you are using. Along with the proper filter thread the lens itself must be under 50mm in diameter. Additionally the focal length of the lens and sensor size of the camera plays a part in compatibility. For an MFT sized sensor the lens' focal length must be between 20-85mm. For a Super 35mm or APS-C Sized Sensor it must be between 35-85mm.

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens should work well with this Anamorphic Adapter, B&H # CA5014EF . It has a 58mm filter thread and is not that large of a lens. https://bhpho.to/2aTfcfk
