Designed with a unique structure, the Sirui 75mm f/1.8 1.33x Anamorphic lens squeezes images down 1.33 times horizontally to fit onto the camera sensor, which you then have to desqueeze in post. Images produced in this way would be in 2.4:1 wide-screen aspect ratio and of high resolution, way better than that of just cropping and adding black bars.
This lens is free from obvious perspective distortion relative to a wide-angle lens, hence characters are presented in a more natural way as if seeing right through your eyes. The 75mm focal length guarantees not only a good distance between the photographer and the model but also an easy switch between a bust portrait and a full-length portrait.
The lens is good at filling the frame with the subject and throwing the background out of focus. Also, sharp and high-resolution imaging contributes to the depiction of subtle emotions.
The 75mm focal length excels at revealing overlooked details in a chaotic scene, providing a fresh and unique perspective for film interpretation.
Spatial compression created by the lens narrows the distance between the background and the subject, amplifying the background while highlighting the subject, delivering a compact yet full effect.
This lens has got what it takes to produce a cinematic blockbuster - high-quality images without deformation, natural and saturated blue lens flares as well as elliptical bokeh.
Fast F1.8 aperture guarantees a sufficient amount of light, and the image remains sharp even with the aperture wide open. The enhanced shutter speed is favorable both for low-light shooting and snapshot taking, readily turning a casual shot into a cinematic poster. Images produced by this lens are high in sharpness, small in chromatic aberration and curve of field, displaying distinctive Anamorphic features.
Aircraft aluminum housing, CNC machining parts, German Schott Glass with multi-layer nano-coating, focus and aperture rings with anti-slip teeth and filter spec of M67*0.75 all indicate that the 75mm lens intercuts seamlessly with the entire line of SIRUI Anamorphic primes in terms of appearance.
As the lightest and most affordable mirrorless Anamorphic lenses on the market today, SIRUI Anamorphic lenses are perfect companions for commercial directors, studio photographers, vloggers, cinematographers, and cinematic enthusiasts.
