Recommended Posts

Hi all, random and possibly silly question - does anyone know if its possible to convert a moviecam SL to 2 perf?

That movement is very expensive to convert, the cost would be several thousand dollars for the movement alone. I was quoted $5k for the job on a moviecam years ago and that was back the parts existed. Andree Martin is the only person who could do it these days, but the savings you make by shooting 2 perf isn't really made up by the exorbitant amount of money put into the movement. Now a 3 perf conversion, that's doable and Andree may have the parts still.

I have a Moviecam sl question regarding shooting in anamorphic 

When using the anamorphic syncobox i
if the viewfinder is de-squeezing the image when using an anamorphic lens?
Is the included viewfinder capable of de-squeezing the anamorphic image?
