According to the article "The Steadicam and "The Shining" (American Cinematographer - August 1980)

Garett Brows says : "To annoy him we would indicate the forest of TV antennas aimed at the studio from suburban Borehamwood and imply that the TV signal was escaping the sound stage and being watched by a gaggle of “Monty Python” women every morning: “Ooooh, poor Mr Brown!… That take seemed perfectly good to me!” Somewhat later, our imitation ladies got even more sophisticated: “Ooh, must be the 24mm Distagon!, see how it’s vignetting in the viewfinder!”

 

I was thinkking if that "24mm Distagon" is a Zeiss Standard Speed 2.1 (in The Shining kubrick used Super Speeds 1.4) OR the Canon 24mm ASPHERICAL 1.4 he used in Barry Lyndon ...

 

As i know .. 24mm Zeiss distagon doesn't vignetting !!! but a Still converted to Cine lens ???

 

-Probably Brows called "distagon" the canon not becouse it's is "official" name but becouse of his curvness

 

-Also the 1.4 speed of Canon would be a great advance in this low ASA 80's

 

What do you think ??

 

Thanks
