Century Optics 16:9 Anamorphic Lensgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread
Comments are invited from anyone who has used the Century Optics 16:9 Anamorphic Lens for the Sony camcorders. What is its quality? And how does one 'unsqueeze' the recorded image? Thanks.

One doesn't "unsqueeze" the recorded image, you simply play it back on a 16:9 which stretches the image out thereby canceling the optical distortion caused by the Century Optics lense which squeezes a 16:9 image into a 4:3 space.

I'm looking into buying one because I want to transfer to film. However, if my project ends up on the straight to video market, I'll letter box my movie via premiere by shrinking it on the x-axis and keeping the y-axis the same.
