Cinematic Flare Colors

We are now offering 3 flare color options, elegant amber, classic sci-fi blue and neutral flare for DPs to adapt to different scenes in your movies.

Silver flare offers the unique capability to adapt the color of flare in response to both the light source’s color and intensity.

Flattering Oval Bokeh

Our Nanomorph 65mm & 80mm can beautifully render a stretched oval bokeh effect, adding a distinctive artistic touch to every movie you shoot with regards to a 1.5x squeeze ratio.

With a maximum aperture of T2.4 and due to their telephoto nature, the 65mm & 80mm effortlessly achieve dreamy depth of field and offer a seamless organic focus roll-off.

Cinematic Widescreen Ratio

Our Nanomorph 65mm & 80mm lenses feature a consistent 1.5X squeeze ratio, making them the ideal companions for 16:9 sensors, which are widely prevalent in the market. In comparison to 1.33X anamorphic lenses available, our Nanomorph lenses provide a significantly more pronounced anamorphic and cinematic aesthetic.

It’s important to note that opting for a 1.8X or 2X squeeze ratio would result in considerable lens size increase and wastage of image when paired with a 16:9 sensor.

Why Anamorphics and Not Spherical Lenses?

Because it is cinematic! Everything you shoot can now be cinematic with a golden aspect widescreen ratio of 2.4:1.

While spherical lenses can provide a more realistic texture to your movies, it is still undeniable that anamorphic lenses can make them more visually intriguing and engaging due to the distortion, oval bokeh and flare. The extra space of view also reveals additional details and information about the scene.

Short Focusing Distance

Short focusing distance of 2’3″/70cm on both the 65mm and 80mm lenses, enables you to effortlessly capture dramatic close-up shots and shoot in tight spaces without any limitations. Whether you’re seeking stunning detail or working in confined quarters, these lenses deliver exceptional performance to meet your creative needs.

Telephoto Compression

When it comes to shooting close/distant objects, the 65mm and 80mm lenses excel by compressing the sense of depth within a scene. More distant objects are now brought closer and covering a larger percentage of the frame.

The 65mm and 80mm T2.4 Nanomorph are undoubtedly enhancing the versatility of the Nanomorph anamorphic series and providing cinematographers with the ability to capture captivating close-up shots. These telephoto focal lengths offer significant advantages for close-up photography, allowing for enhanced depth of field and stunning bokeh effects.

Minimal Loss of Aperture Stops & Image Quality

One of the challenges of using an anamorphic adapter is that it can result in a loss of aperture stops and image quality. This means that the image may not be as bright or sharp as it would be without the adapter.

To provide our filmmakers with the maximum performance of the adapter, we have created a special design to ensure the loss of aperture stops and image quality are minimal, allowing filmmakers to achieve the desired anamorphic look.
