Anamorphic Home Theater/ Cinema Projector Lens 1.33x. No lens scratches or flaws. Solid heavyweight construction in black coated steel. Lens is Mounted on a slide rail to allow easy removal from light path. Mounting holes on slide rail base to allow fixing to a suitable platform.The advantage of using a 1.33x anamorphic attachments in converting aspect ratios is that they optically convert 16:9 native format to 2.35:1 Cinemascope format. All of the projectors light and native 16x9 resolution can then used to create a full-framed image, not unsightly black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
The best available lenses are manufactured by Isco. Popular with high end Barco projectors. This prism design anamorphic lens is a great introduction to anamorphic lens technology. Why should you invest in an anormorphic Lens now that some projectors have zoom and lens memories? There are 3 main reasons why people may want an anamorphic Lens.Using more pixels rather than having letter box bars top and bottom, increases brightness of image, which can in particular be important for 4K HDR. All pixels are used, means a better fill ratio. Without an anamorphic lens you are not viewing full 4k or 1080p resolution due to 33% of pixel resolution loss from black bars on movies of 2.4:1 aspect ratio. Increased image size from limited throw distance. Most modern projectors should work just fine with this lens.
Some give better results than others depending on your projector model and setup; the screen size; the quality of your projector lens and video processing; and whether the projector or video processor has the ability to vertically stretch the 2.35:1 Cinemascope movie to fill the full 16:9 area of the projector chip. A reasonably long throw distance is recommended to prevent pincushion.
I used this lens with my JVC X7000 with 100 screen from a 4.5 Metre throw distance, and it worked perfectly. The lens can be moved out of the light path if you are not watching Cinemascope movies, or use a Lumagen or similar video processor to automatically recognise aspect ratio. Note: Please do not ask me if this lens will work with a particular projector model. Setting up an anamorphic lens correctly requires some experience or technical knowledge, and is not for novice beginner end users.
Similar case for anamorphic lenses for professional photography cameras. Therefore I recommend the lens is correctly installed by a competant projector/home cinema dealer or expert, or do your own research. The item "Anamorphic Projector Lens 1.33x Cinemascope.
