SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x 65 Anamorphic Lens

hey guys.

i m interested in buying the SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x 65 Anamorphic Lens Adapter since its the only option available to me and its around $1000 .

my question is would this lens act as a Horizontal Expansion lens ? i m looking to expand my vertically stretched 16:9 image to the sides so i can achieve a wider picture.

thank you

There is a thread on this lens: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/117-2...ght=anamorphot

It is a small Horizontal expansion lens, obviously not intended for this purpose, but it may in fact work. See the discussion linked for actual user experiences.

There are larger, better HE expansion lenses intended for HT that are cheaper if you look in the classifieds here and Ebay. Why is it the only option available to you?

For example:

Says to continental US only, but as long as people are willing to pay for shipping, I've never had a problem both selling and buying.

Sorry for late reply but my notifications were bugged.
It is my only option since we have a banking issue at the moment and we cant pay outside the country, so i can only look for what is available localy, ive read that some people preferred the SLR 50 to the UH480 and the SLR 65 should be even better than the 50, my only issue is i m making sure its an HE lens to get a bigger image since i m limited with throw distance.

Reading this thread it seems it works and pretty good at it as well, and that is with the 50, the 65 should be even better.
