Greatly simplifying the process of focusing with anamorphic adapters, the SLR Magic Rangefinder Cine Adapter with Near/Normal Calibration provides 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.
The Rangefinder can be used on anamorphic clamps that have a 72 mm threaded front or on autofocus lenses to provide manual focus capability. The adapter integrates a cine-style focus gear, allowing it to easily interface with a variety of optional focus accessories. It is marked near/far for focus control and allows you to focus your lens or lens/anamorphic adapter combination from 4' to infinity.
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, you can shift focus fron near to far using the rangefinder.
The adapter provides your lens with a focus range of 4' to infinity. Even if your lens or lens and anamorphic adapter combination by themselves do not focus as close as 4', using the adapter brings the minimum focus distance to 4'.
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.
