I'm pretty new with DSLR shooting, I have a Panasonic GH4 with a 12-35 Lumix X Lens,
My questions for all fellow videographers is:
What Lenses are great for anamorphic filmmaking (1.33x SLR Magic) when you have a low budget? ($1,000~$1,500 without the SLR Magic)
I'm looking at either the Nikon speedbooster or the canon speedbooster, which is best for the GH4 and does the Nikon speedbooster effect workflow with it being a passive adapter? (I like manually adjusting everything)
Is the 1.33x SLR Magic worth it? I don't want any black corners, just a 2.35:1 aspect ration without resolution loss and the cinematic flares.
Thank you !

Hi knightroyal – congratulations on your new camera! I have the GH4 and love the images it can produce.
I've been looking at the SLR Magic Anamorphot for a while, and everything I've seen from Speed Booster adapted Canon and Nikon lenses has been pretty good:
This lens is so fast you don't need an expensive Speed Booster – and it is 100% manual.
Hope this is helpful!

Good comments. I am also searching for a good lens for still photography and wedding videography and short films.
Would the Anammorphot or Nokton Voigtlander 25mm work for both? Are there any lenses w/autofocus that give the same results?
