Anamorphic Mesmerizers are attachments that are added to a given lens to create a 2x squeeze. These adapters have a mechanism that allows the 2x squeeze optic to be rotated, transforming the image in wacky ways. There are two types of mesmerizer attachments. One attaches to the front of a 114mm lens and the other mounts to the rear of a zoom lens that features a universal mount (25-250mm Angenieux for example.)

AstroScope NightVision PL Mount Lens Adapter
The AstroScope Night Vision Module enables the user to produce images under extreme low-light conditions. Similar to a pair of night vision goggles, the AstroScope uses a high performance intensifier to amplify available light and create the classic night vision look. Our AstroScope's have been exclusively modified in-house to utilize the industry standard PL Mount for use with modern cinema cameras and lenses.

Century Low Angle Prism
The Century Low Angle Prism is designed to mount to the front of a camera system on rods in front of a lens and allows the operator to capture an image that is off axis from the camera. It’s great for capturing extremely low angle images such as a person feet running.

Leitz Cine MacroLux Diopter Set: +0.5, +1, +2
MACROLUX 114 and 95 +2, +1 and +0.5 optics offer cinematographers and lens owners a creative way to get different looks and extend the performance of prime, zoom and anamorphic lenses with 95 mm front diameters.
The diopter, a secret weapon of classic cinematography for decreasing the minimum focus distance of lenses, has been reinvented for single sensor digital cameras. Often diopters are thought of as a tool for tabletop work on longer lenses, but the creative possibilities extend well beyond macro imaging into the world of the wide and the beautiful.
Each shares the same mechanical housing, which means that all three are compatible with 114 mm or 95 mm front diameter prime, zoom and anamorphic lenses and that all of them can be stacked and combined for new effects. The MACROLUX 114, 95 +2 offers a greater macro effect for table top and close up work. The much requested +0.5 provides many more options for use with wide angle lenses.
The secret of the MACROLUX 114, 95 is not just what happens in focus, but what happens out of focus, using the MACROLUX 114, 95 on wide or mid-range focal length lenses throws the background further out of focus and accentuates beautiful elements like focus fall off and bokeh.
The modern lens design of the MACROLUX 114, 95 creates a high performance optic with no perceptible light loss, spherical aberrations, color fringing or centering issues. The custom coatings offer it a high resolution and contrast along with a color temperature matched to the natural, neutral look of the SUMMILUX-C and SUMMICRON-C lenses, although it also pairs well with other lenses, including anamorphics.
