Shooting anamorphic 2X with ARRI SR1 Possible ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm looking for the possibility to use an ARRI SR1 in regular16.

I'm shooting with a custom made anamorphic kit adapter 2X.

 

I read somewhere that it is possible to adapt the 2x viewfinder from a ARRI 35BL into an ARRI SR1.

If anyone would be knowledgeable about this.

 

One question would be if this is even do-able, and another question will be how I can buy it and have it mounted on the Arri SR1.

 

(not interested by video assist etc..)

 

Thanks.

 

Matthieu

Yea it's totally doable. 2x anamorphic is fine for 4:3 frames like standard 16mm. It would just be funny to view in the viewfinder because it will be squeezed, but if you can live with that, no big deal.

Hi Matthieu,

 

yes there was an anamorphic extention viewfinder for the 35BL and 35-III that could be used on an SR1, since they share the same viewfinder connection, but good luck finding one.. I think they were fairly rare. I know Cameraquip here in Melbourne has one among their rental items.

Actually I never shot spherical... I shot anamorphic since i have begun to shoot few years ago. At that moment there was no desqueeze on the atomos for the gh4 so i have the habit to frame and - double- focus with the 2X stretch.

 

I tested it well with the K-3 recently, but in more pro camera I found the viewfinder way darker... less easy to use anamorphic.

Sounds great thanks ! So do you think its an item that I could actually buy from these rental company or they use them quite often ? Just checked on ebay or google, not much to be found unfortunately.

 

Do you know anyone that would have try it before on a SR1 by any chance ?
