Moller 30 - rare anamorphic attachment // MOUNT?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I bought this lens already some months ago and rarely had time looking further into what I really got there. From the pre-owner I got a "detailed" history sheet but it lacks a lot of information. I tried tracking down more by contacting Moller Germany but they have no real clue and forwarded my request to the Moller museum/archive.

 

I have been puzzled by the mount. Anybody got an idea about which taking lens we could be talking here? Kinoptik? Cooke? Dual-sync?

 

My goal is to set this lens up the way it was intented to be used. Thanks for your help!

Stefan

I have a similar type of attachment. Looks like you have two options here.

 

First, the bracket would allow you to mount it on rods in front of any lens, as long as your rods provide correct centering. Also, you're limited to lenses whose front diameter closely matches the rear of the anamorphic.

 

Second, I don't know of any spherical lenses with a bayonet mount in front, but I'm guessing the bayonet ring you have would allow you to build an adapter for one.

I wouldn't know how your specific lens was set up before, but I'm still inclined to think you were provided with two different methods of mounting. Seems like you would have interference issues otherwise.

Still didnt solve this riddle, but I got this shot from the Moller museum in Germany.
