Anamorphic Cine lens on the 645Z

I just stumbled onto this, and it has a look that I would really like to work with. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get started with this on my 465Z?

Well, you could go back and check out the initial video where he makes the adapter. It should be pretty much the same and straightforward. 33x44mm is even easier to cover than 6x6.

Thank you, I have figured out what he did, I was actually more interested to see if anyone had done it on a 645Z. I have both a 6 x 7 150 and a 6 x 7 160 that are close to his 150 Zeiss. Then it comes down to figuring out which anamorphic lens will work the best. Any one know anything about them?

I think you should choose your focal length after you've got your hands on an anamorphic projector lens. You just have to find the sweet spot when the vignetting just disappears. You can even see it on some corners of his images still. Just like when pairing lenses thread to thread for macro. I wish I had access to a lathe. Would do that adapter in a heartbeat.
He says in the video that he tried converters, but they just didn't work that well, but perhaps that could be your solution. I've seen a few new ones popping up lately.

Before today I had only heard of these lenses being used in cinematography. They have cylindrical surfaces and distort a square image into being rectangular.

That guy didn't build an X-Pan but still interesting. And if you're going to shoot 120 film, you can still get or put together a Texas X-Pan in the form of a 6x17 camera. And today, people are 3D printing pano cameras with various aspect ratio's using 120 film and with really wide angle options.

My thoughts as well...

I have seen people shooting various flavors of these. How are you getting on with the GX617? At various times, I have been tempted to get a 6x17 roll film holder for my view camera.

I like shooting a pano camera a lot. I want another lens for it that's a longer focal length. A frame from my 6x17 is about 6.6 inches wide so you'd need a 5x7 camera to get that format on sheet film. But a 2.5:1 aspect ratio is also plenty wide.

Of course a view camera has special characteristics with its movements but the simple and fast setup/takedown of my GX617 plus the less bulk to carry with 120 roll film than sheet film holders makes me want to take it out more than I would if it was a view camera. With just the 90mm lens, I can carry it around in a small backpack with a compact tripod to all kinds of places.
