an anamorphic christmas..

so i had been messing around with the panasonic anamorphic adapter for a while, but it was really soft and hard to work with and doesn't produce the oval OOF areas which are one of the greatest things about anamorphic photography. since the iscorama lenses are now selling instantly for thousands of dollars and i wanted to get a handheld rig and rod adapter anyway, i decided to buy up an old (1973, for maximum artifacty weirdness) lomo square front and the Hot Rod PL adapter.

be sure to turn on the HD!
