Testing the Kowa anamorphic | Cinema Prime Lenses Blog

Thanks to the guys at Camaleon rental and to the fact that I had some free time, I had the chance to take a close look to a nice set of vintage of Kowa Anamorphic. To tell you the truth I was really looking forward to it because they have become extremely popular lately (at least in Spain) so I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. And the first reason of why they are so popular was in front of my eyes in the moment I opened the case. Last anamorphic sets I've worked with where hawk C-series rehoused and Elite anamorphic, plus I had seen at the BIT in Madrid the Master anamorphic and the Cooke anamorphic so I kinda had the (now I know it's wrong) feeling that ALL anamorphic sets were big and heavy. Well, from this angle the Kowa are indeed very special: they are small and light, with a from diameter adapted to the standard 80mm and a length very similar to the Zeiss super speed...
