Have a Lomo lens and want to mount it on your Canon EOS 7D or Canon EOS 5D Mark II?

by planetmitch9 Comments

This is pretty cool if you ask me… tho I’ve never owned a Lomo, it would be fun to play with it… especially after seeing this Canon EOS 5D Mark II movie. Granted it is just a few test shots, but it does have a cool look and feel. You really should download the full size video from Vimeo.

I looked up Steve Morton (mentioned in the description below) and found he’s got a website where you can order all sorts of adapters to mount Lomo lenses to your Canon equipment called Cinemods. Check them out!

5dm2 + lomo roundfront anamorphics first test from Hunter H. Richards on Vimeo.

I bought an oct-19 to EOS adapter from Steve Morton. Now I can use my lomo roundfront anamorphics that have not yet received an arri PL mount. Really fun! This is just a test to get the cropping and desqueeze sorted out. Apple Shake makes it easy to do.

No cc on this, just a quick desqueeze and crop on shake (for proper 2.4:1 aspect)

Update:
Hunter H. Richards sent us this message: “P.S. If you want a picture of the camera you can see/download one here if your a dvxuser member, pardon the iphone quality”

I took a snap of one of those images…

Nice Images! I think it is great to have not-so-high-contrast lesnses in HDSLR´s, Post is better. By the way: Do you need to "gut" the camera for this lens to fit? Do you know if the lens can be fit with one of those screw-only mounts? Thanks!
