SLR Magic SLR-77RFWM overview

  • 1Description

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.

    SLR Magic SLR-77RFWM reviews

    Rangefinder Cine Adapter (Calibrated in Feet) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it's suppose to, but not without issues. Unlike many others, I had few issues getting sharp images from the Rangefinder. I just followed the suggested guidelines from SLR Magic and made sure my taking lens and anamorphic were actually at infinity (Please don't just turn the lens to the infinity marking and assume that's infinity, always test on a far away object first, especially with old lenses.) My issues were the blue flares and spots that sometimes appear at the worst times. It you are flying a small rig and don't have a matte box (You will definitely need one) light at the wrong angle just gives these horrible blue spots that clash the image really badly. Also, on some taking lenses with modern coatings, when you WANT it to flare, it flares weird occasionally... like a weird blue blob appears on pans. This is not a good run-and-gun focusing solution, as many of tried to state it is. If you are going super light without a follow-focus it's huge and difficult to focus quickly. The Rectilux without focus gears is better suited for that. If you are shooting in a controlled environment with a solid rig and this is all you have access to, the Rangefinder works fine. There are just too many of the wrong optical surprises for run-and-gun use. For the price, especially used, it's definitely not bad. Just don't expect perfection. I sold mine after shooting 10 hours of test video in various environments while on other jobs. It just doesn't work well for what I want.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea, a little funky Sounded like the perfect add-on to my slr magic anamorphot 50 1.33x adapter. And cool that it could be used on my canon l series lenses as well. Ended up being too much trouble unfortunately. Had to really snug it up tight to the anamorphot in order for it not to move or coming unscrewed while focusing, especially when hitting its hard stops. Getting it that tight though ended up spinning the front element of my anamophot adapter out of alignment, which I'm now going to have to send in to get fixed. Also not great that it leaves the focus gears on the very end of the lenses, which makes mattebox all but impossible...to be fair that's the case with other real anamorphic lenses too tho I.e. Lomo round fronts, and somethings you can get around with a French flag. The close focus abilities and of course the focus gears and marks are amazing though, especially for such a low price. I would definitely use it again if I was doing studio work or something a little gentler and slower paced. Just couldn't get it working great for a fast paced short film shoot. Really well built and felt solid and looked beautiful to be fair:)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great affordable option This is a great option for focus on an anamorphic or DIY lens setup.  It does have its drawbacks and produces a definitive blue flare in the image though.
    Date published: 2018-11-13
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with wide to normal lenses Its pretty good with anamorphot and wide to normal lenses, when used with telephoto the image becomes unusable
