Rare baby Hypergonar cinemascope anamorphic lens for sale
  • I am going to sell my baby hypergonar cinemascope lens. Allegedly, 50 units of these gems- 52 grams, 1.8 oz.- made around 1960s by Henri Chrétien before selling the rights of his optical patent to 20th Fox on late 60’s. With spectacular images quality, exceptional anamorphic flares, small size and ease of use, this tiny beast is –and will remain to be- hard to compete in the whole anamorphic world. Optically, the glass is in very good condition, exceptional for its age. There are minimal signs of use but nothing to affect the quality of the image. The price is $2500 but you are welcome to submit if you have an offer. Please check these samples to see what you can do with this baby:
