The Anamorphot-40 features adjustable focus marked normal and near. The near adjustment allows you to focus on subjects two feet away; setting the adapter to normal allows you to focus on subjects from three feet to infinity. The Anamorphot-40 mounts to lenses with a non-rotating front and a 52mm front filter thread. This adapter is compatible with full-frame and APS-C camera sensors, and with both automatic and manual focus lenses.

SLR Magic SLRAC-40133 Reviews

Great for smaller lenses

By Darrell
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-12

I found this adaptor easy to use with my various lenses. I tested the look with both 7artisians and vintage Nikon glass. Close far adjustment did a good job addressing the squeeze issues with close focus and this lens is far sharper then my previous 1.33x Adaptor from panasonic. Flares were nice and not over stated. The smaller size makes this very useful for handheld work with mirrorless cameras. The look with the 7artisians really enhanced the grungy look of the taking lens while the clean sharpness from the Nikon was nice. Shot on Sony a6300, the widest lens that you can use is about 28mm, which is fine for most applications. Anamorphic is tricky to use without a de-squeezed monitor, so I would say that is a must.

Great Anamorphic Adapter for Micro Four Thirds

Using the SLR Magic Anamorphot-40 1.33x Anamorphic Adapter with my SLR Magic Hyper Prime 25mm T0.95 cine lens (also purchased from B&H) is a really nice combination. The two really work well together. The images are amazing. For the price you can't go wrong. I find that SLR Magic lens are well made. Its really fun shooting and editing anamorphic content. Presently shooting lumix g9 (purchased from B&H) with latest firmware update.

Super!

Very nice product. And quality is best!

Nicely built, but too soft.

By Rick
Rated 3 out of 5

This adapter is wonderfully compact and well built, but softness is an issue with taking lenses even when proper focal length is used. The Mitakon 25mm f0.95, for instance, won't focus properly even when stopped way down and the Near-Far dial on the Anamorphot is adjusted. That said, the recommended Lumix 20mm f1.7 isn't too bad, even auto-focus works, but overall softness is still an issue. Great adapter for starting out, perhaps, but more clarity is needed for prosumer shoots.

So far so good

There is no any SLR Magic anamorphot-40 available in rental house near my city, so I was terribly worried that it couldn't fit to my SEL18135 Lens for Sony a6600. Gladly, with a proper step-down ring, it works fine and seems not too heavy for the whole camera set. After a few practices, especially about training myself to de-squeeze the preview picture by imagination, I can't wait to use this baby working on my new short film project.

Pretty good for the price

I wanted to try shooting anamorphic without spending a lot of money. I'm using a Canon 50mm on a 6D mark II and a zhiyun gimbal with pretty good results. Nice flares and after adjusting the Anamorphot, the autofocus on the Canon works well. Enjoying the results.

I like it a lot! Extremely different look and feel!

I used this adapter on a 24mm pancake lens, and it worked pretty well at f stop 5, not as sharp as I would like it but it is still pretty sharp. Focus is not entirely perfect with AF on my 24mm, but I do plan on getting rings to try out other lenses down the road!

Works even better than expected!

As a film student on a budget, I had done plenty of research before committing to this purchase and I am glad I did. I am even happier that this adapter performs even better that I expected it to after reading and watching reviews. The lens flares are a satisfying diamond blue and perfectly horizontal once you have correctly positioned the adapter in front of the lens. I shoot on a Lumix G7 so I had to get a step-up ring to fit the adapter with the 46mm lens mount. I think getting SLR Magic's anamorphic adapter is a better option than buying a full-on anamorphic lens because you are free to attach it to different zoom or prime lenses with different focal lengths and depths of field.

Which is the BEST focal length for the best/most anamorphic look? (A6400 APSC camera)
Asked by: Yi
What people don't about anamorphic 1.33x is that you need a camera that can shoot video at 4:3 aspect ration. When 4:3 is used with a 1.33x anamorphic lens, and then desqueezed, it comes out to the proper 2.35 cinemascope. The only cameras that can do that in 4K are smartphones (with apps like Filmic Pro) and the Panasonic GH4 and GH5. OR... if you have an older Canon camera that can use Magic Lantern, this app unlocks hidden features like 4:3 aspect ration. Another benefit of older cameras is that they shoot in 640x480, with is 4:3. Sure, it's not HD... but if you're trying to achieve that old school cinematic look, 640x480 @ 24 or 25 fps and edited in post using sepia or B&W may be the ticket.

can I use this adopter with sony 24mm 1.4 gm??
Asked by: E
You cannot. For an adapter like this to work it needs to have the proper filter thread, size of of the outer diameter of the lens itself and finally the focal length needs to be correct for the camera. At 24mm it is too wide of a lens for a full frame camera, along with it not fitting the filter thread or outer diameter of the lens. To use this adapter with a Full Frame Sony E-Mount camera your best option will be the SLR Magic Cine II 50mm f/1.1 Lens (Sony E-Mount), B&H # SL5011FE2. This has the proper thread, outer diameter and focal length. https://bhpho.to/2KAhLG2

Is the bokeh rectangular or oval?
Asked by: Charles D.
Depending on what type of footage. The bokeh at normal lighting have very soft, oval type bookeh.At stronger lighting and when its darker. It gives some good citynight footage with the more long lensflare and lots of visual with wide lens. Giving its the unique footage.

question

just received mine- how do you adjust to ensure this adapter is tightly and securely screwed onto the taking lens whilst still being oriented correctly (with the rectangle on the front in 'landscape' orientation- as by default when screwed tightly/securely to my taking lens it's at the wrong angle and at the correct angle it's too loose..)? Thank you for any feedback!
Asked by: Justin
The rear has a sliding locking ring. Set up a point light source in the frame of your taking lens. Mount the Anamorphot. Move the rear sliding locking ring forward then rotate the Anamorphot until the blue line created by your point source is horizontal. Then let go the ring and the Anamorphot is locked in place.

question

Can you mix desqueezed anamorphic footage with regular 16:9 footage in or do you have to stick to one or the other for a project?
Asked by: Mitch H.
While you will have to stick with one final format, usually 16:9, there are many cases where film makers have switched between aspect ratios in a film for effect. You can have a 16:9 project that occasionally switches to 2:35:1 footage with a letter box.
