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!
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)

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…
