Will a barrel type lens designed for cameras work the same way as the panamorphs? As long as the lens is large enough to allow the light to pass through I don't see the difference in the two except price.

I've looked in the past and I couldn't find anything with a large enough aperture to avoid vignetting and artifacts. And if you don't find a 1.33x stretch lens and use custom scaling, then you will not be using the full panel, which kinda defeats the purpose.

Won't work because it'll be far too small.


Also it won't be focusable which is essential for projection. More to the point these camera lenses are focused at infinity, not the short distances needed for HT.

Thanks for the info. Were only ignorant if we choose not to ask.
