Runco/Whitney Vertical Compression A Lens

Selling a nice vertical compression anamorphic lens here. Just the lens, no mount, but one can easily be fashioned. Came off a Runco 810.

This lens is apparently the same as the Panamorph VFX lens, a glass prism that compresses the height. I used a PC to scale the image before sending it through the lens. The result is an increase in resolution and added brightness from using the full panel. It works pretty well... just set your 16:9 image to the width you want your 2.35:1 image you want to be, stretch the image vertically with a PC or inside the projector, and then move the lens in place.

I used the Panamorph specs for setting it up, but found that it operates with a shorter throw than the Panamorph required.

I would like to get $300 for it, but am open to offers as I no longer use it.

Send me a PM or hit me up at gmalegmayel @, thanks. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance.
