Tito Ferradans here with something that might sound out of the blue. I got tired of watching prices rise and few new anamorphics being added to the market – none of them aimed at the budget market – so I took matters into my own hands and, with an excellent team around me, I created SCOPE.

SCOPE is what I’ve been working on every time I mentioned my LOMO set. A small batch of super-wide, affordable anamorphic lenses. These are 30mm T/2, 2x stretch babies. If you MUST know, the first batch of SCOPE sells for $4000 with delivery scheduled for January 2019. Here’s how the footage looks like.

After experimenting with all sorts of adapters I had a solid idea of what worked and what didn’t. SCOPE’s single focus operation is the same as old LOMOs. To achieve such wide angle the front element is huge – by far the most challenging part of the design. SCOPE features a slot for 114mm (4.5″) filters, minimum focus at 1.2m (4ft), focus and iris gears and swappable EF/PL mount.
