To setup, you must first attach the setup to the front filter of your prime taking lens (Zeiss, Canon, Nikon, Rokinon, Sigma, etc) using the anamorphic clamp. Next, set infinity focus on the taking lens. You are now ready to focus with our anamorphic. Simply rotate the single focus attachment to focus closer, or to infinity. When setting your focus scale to infinity, your minimum focus will be around 1 feet (0.3m). To change the focus scale for close focus, adjust the taking and anamorphic lens to set your "infinity focus" to around 3 feet. This will now allow you to use the attachment to focus to around 5-6 inches. But what cameras work the best for anamorphic? Virtually any camera will work, as mentioned above. But any camera a crop factor, or a 4:3 aspect ratio option is preferred for anamorphic work, as you can reach very desirable aspect ratios with 2x anamorphic, yet retain the cinematic 2x anamorphic bokeh. Anamorphic lenses were originally used to double the view of 35mm film. This resulted in the effect that we today associate with a cinematic look. What is the field of view of my resulting image?
When shooting anamorphic, the additional image gathered by the anamorphic lens greatly increase you field of view. If you pair this anamorphic with a 85mm taking lens, your resulting image will have the resulting horizontal field of view of a 42.5mm non-anamorphic lens! This is why higher crop factors or alternate sensor modes greatly assist when shooting anamorphic- they effectively turn your camera into a full frame (horizontal) field of view. When editing, you can simply scale your vertical size by 200%, or change your pixel aspect ratio to 2.0.
This will double your horizontal resolution, turning a 4k DSLR into an 8K cinemascope camera. How does this compare to other anamorphic lenses? The number of lenses that can focus with only one element (single focus) are highly rare and far more expensive. Other, dual-focus lenses also have soft corners, or do not work at apertures faster than f/4 or f/5.6.
