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


The patent pending design of the CineMorph filters will never replace true anamorphic images, but a lens as fun as the Sigma 18mm-35mm f1.8 (which doesn't work with other anamorphic attachments) deserves to have a little fun and come close!

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

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.

For optimal results, please stay between f1.8 and f2.8.

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 main 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).

CineMorph (Anamorphic Looks) Mod Filter fun on the Sigma 18-35mm zoom lens on the BlackMagic Cinema Camera by Michael LeCroy

Polish short documentary (subtitled in English) about a young female welder. Directed, filmed and edited by Tomas Suski www.tomsuski.com

Filmed on the Canon 60D with Sigma 18-35 and the CineMorph Mod Filter (Cool Blue flare option).

 

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 IN THE FIRST BACTH OF BLACKMAGIC CAMERAS. THEY HAVE SINCE FIXED THIS ISSUE.

If there is any resistance when trying to mount the lens to a camera (with the filter installed) PLEASE NEVER force it to mount. Make sure the 3 little fastener screws are fully re-positioned into place as close as possible.


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

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.

If there is any resistance when trying to mount the lens to a camera (with the filter installed) PLEASE NEVER 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. If there is any resistance when trying to mount to your camera do NOT force it to mount.

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, Sony A7

FAQ:

Q: Can this filter be used with Speedboosters on the GH4 or other M4/3 cameras?

A: Some users have reported that the CineMorph Mod filter along with various Speedboosters are too tight of a fit. Others have reported no issues and have shared great results with us using speedboosters (see videos above).

When using the CineMorph Mod filter it's best to use a Lens-to-Camera converter with more space within the converter - something very basic and affordable similar to this one HERE.

Using this converter doesn't allow for all of the extra benefits that the Speedboosters achieve, but it will allow for the use of the Mod filter giving you anamorhic looks on the Sigma-Canon lenses.

We have made the filters a little thinner recently and so it may work with various speedboosters but please know that if you feel any resistance when mounting to never force it.


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.
