THE CINEMORPH MOD FILTER (for the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8)

See Flare/Streak Color Options Below


The patent pending design of the CineMorph filters will never replace true anamorphic images, but a lens as fun as the Sigma 18-35 (which won't work with other anamorphic attachments) deserves to have a little fun and come close!

For the very first time you can now have Anamorphic and Vintage looks on an f1.8 Wide-Angle zoom lens along with auto-features all at once. Lens sold separately.

Anamorphic Bokeh throughout the whole range of the lens (18mm to 35mm).

The filter will not stretch or squeeze your image like a real anamorphic lens, only the bokeh and the areas out of focus will be morphed.

This gives you the classic CinemaScope look without all the hassles of dual rack focusing, clamping, severe vignetting and without additional glass that can soften the image. Also without the price tag of real anamorphic lenses and attachments!

Mounts behind the lens, not in front! No additional glass!

The only down side is that you'll lose about 1 stop of light as your lens will now act more like an f2.8 (see Before & After sample image below).

Just like using this 18-35mm lens without the filter installed, the larger the sensor in the camera, the more vignetting can appear.

The Sigma 18-35mm lens is meant for crop sensor cameras (non full frame).

At this time the filter is only available for the Canon mount Sigma 18-35.

Coming soon for additional mounts and lenses. See our other CineMorph and Flare/Streak filters HERE for options on many other various lenses.


INSTALLATION:

This CineMorph Modification Filter requires you to loosen 3 small screws at the back of the lens, position and align the filter into place and then tighten or replace the 3 small screws. See Video Below.

This Do-it-yourself modification will probably void any warranty you have on the lens, so please install this filter at your own risk. If there is any resistance when trying to mount to your camera do NOT force it to mount.

IT IS A VERY EASY AND SIMPLE ELEMENT TO INSTALL, BUT YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY AN IMPROPER INSTALLATION. BY PURCHASING THIS FILTER YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS.

There are many many variables these days (with 3rd party adapters, speedboosters, etc., so we are constantly testing new combinations. Please do not purchase this if you are not willing to assume risk when using with combinations that have not yet been tested. Please contact us with any questions.

Tested (or reported by other users) on the following camera bodies without any issues: Red (Canon EF mount), Sony NEX 5N (with basic EF adapter), Canon 5D Mark II (for test mounting purposes), Canon C300/C100.

SOME BLACKMAGIC CINEMA (EF MOUNT) CAMERAS DO NOT SUPPORT 3RD PARTY EF ADAPTERS OR MODIFICATIONS SUCH AS THIS AND THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR DAMAGE IF YOU DECIDE TO USE THIS OR ANY OTHER EF ADAPTER. THIS IS DUE TO A FOCAL FLANGE DISTANCE ISSUE.


The Flare/Streak filament has a neutral color, meaning it's color is dependent on the color temperature of the light source coming in to the lens. You can also select from the Flare/Streak colors shown below.
