When the woman in the sheer dress walks away from the camera at a shallow angle you can tell it is a horizontal compression midpoint/rear element. Notice that she keeps height but slims slightly, one of the reasons a breakup is always done flat side to side in sphericals but at 35-40 degrees and away when you use anamorphics. Somehow, for some reason, people think she looks better every step she takes away from the camera, which, of course, symbolizes the man she is walking away from. Shoot her doing it that way with sphericals and she looks shorter with each step. With a front anamorphic she remains less changed and looks more natural, slightly less horizontal shrink.
FYI. if you need to shoot the girl walking away shot like that with a spherical lens get the longest focal length you have, back the camera way, way, WAY up, and leave the focus locked, keeping her in focus with the forward dolly movement. The shallow DOF shows her movement and the audience feels it in their guts as things she passes come into focus and then drop out of focus as she moves.
Make me stop talking before I un-retire.

I saw somewhere they are spherical primes with a rear 2x vertical stretch which would be pointless; looking at the bokeh section of the presentation I can see that is not the case. Unless there's a waterman stop in there which would be beyond Colecam's in-depth wtf. Didnt catch a rack focus shot; do they breathe?
I still love my Lomos.

> Not sure what you mean but Cooke will sell you a lens with a PL mount and Universal mount for DSLR. Or do you mean you need an adapter on your PL mount to use Cooke. Understand old anamorphics needed a shim to mount PL mount. May be best to check with Cooke, they will reply to questions.
