Pardon my ignorance regarding anamorphic lenses for digital projectors but could any of these lenses be used for home theater?

The Type C can be had for $909 at: http://www.rsem.com/equipment-details.asp?partnum=23500


The Type S for $1022 at: http://www.rsem.com/equipment-details.asp?partnum=23550

The Type S and X require 60mm and larger lens? What size is the lens on most projectors?

The cinemascope adapters are 2x, which would change your 4:3 picture into an 8:3 or 2.67:1. Also, the adapters are made for non-telecentric film projector lenses, so some of the light may be blocked towards the edge of your picture.


I've been to the Sankor factory and wasn't impressed. They sell most of their lenses in India and China where they can't afford German (Schneider or ISCO) lenses. This was back when we were looking for lenses for DLP Cinema.


BTW, I designed the latest 1.33x ISCO adapter. I know it has alot of distortion, but that kind of correction costs alot of money.

I was afraid of that. Thanks for the info. It would be nice to find a distortion free anamorphic lens that you could actually buy and afford.

Can these lenses be used with projectors? All they mention is camcorders.
