Filmo different aspect ratio

Which Filmo VF? 16mm or 8mm? If you're speaking of the 16mm 70 series, does it have the turret type with objectives (70DR, 70DL), the fixed viewfinder with drum-switchable diopters (70DA) or the fixed viewfinder with no diopter nor adjustment?

I modified the turret in my 70DL to match the focal length of my 2.5" Kodak Anastigmat by notching the thin brass foil that forms the mask. You could either widen the mask with a keyhole file (there is plenty of room) or make the vertical axis shorter using some amazing flat, black tape then switching out the objective itself to match the lens FL.
