Please note model is only available as a self assembly unit with instruction guide included
Please note that there are certain Möller 32/2x Anamorphots on the used market which were produced exclusively for telecine use. They can be recognised by the lack of distance information on the focus skirt ring and also the rear optic is recessed into the body by approximately 10mm. These units cannot be focused beyond 4m, but they do seem to have single coated optics. Consequently, these units require additional modification to enable infinity focus.
Please note model is available either as a self assembly unit with instruction guide included or factory fitted anamorphic optics at additional cost
Rectilux single focus anamorphic attachments unleash the power of vintage optics from Europe and the Far East and are available either as self-assembly or factory fitted units. Rectilux single focus anamorphic attachments have neutral optical transfer function, multi-element focusing optics to preserve the character of the base anamorphic and of the spherical taking lens. Coated or uncoated options are available.
Rectilux single focus anamorphic attachments unleash the
2X stretch* aesthetic in the time-honoured movie tradition and provide a faithful rendition of what you see on the big screen, complete with stunning deep blue anamorphic flares**, oval iris reflections and beautiful waterfall/painterly bokeh.

Rectilux single focus anamorphic attachments have single follow focus (FF) operation and optional Floating Zone Focus system for improved close focusing. The housing and focussing optics are designed using CAD software and are precision engineered to very close tolerances. I call this process [[REVISIONEERING]].
Rectilux 3FF series single focus anamorphic attachments are supplied with a quick change anamorphic lens mount system Changing anamorphic lenses is a simple procedure that can be performed in less than one minute. There is also support for standard 15mm rods near the centre of gravity for best balance.
The optical optimisation of the focusing system was performed with a Floating Zone Focus system in mind. The design objectives are achieved by variation of axial displacement between individual lens elements or groups which allows the cinematographer to fine tune the focusing system to the shooting environment.
Rectilux single focus anamorphic attachments feature a strengthened front assembly for protection and also support for a follow-focus Mod 0.8 geared ring plus a front filter thread* for ND or split field dioptres. Coupling ring(s) and RectiGrip are supplied.
