  • Alphatron Anamorphic de - squeez question

    Hi There,
    A quick question regarding the new alphatron EVF firmware which allows to De-squeeze anamorphic images:
    Currently in aspect ratio mode on the alphatron menu I see the following modes:
    1.85;1
    2.35:1
    16:10
    16:9
    4:3
    anamorphic 1.3x
    anamorphic 1.5x
    anamorphic 2x.

    I have an SLR magic anamorphic adpater 1.33x and so I would like to de- squeeze the image to that ration but I noticed that when I move the menu between 2.35:1,16:9, 16:10, anamorphic 1.3x or 1.5x there is no De- squeezing going on within the EVF view... only when I move it to anamorphic 2x mode I can see the image De-squeezes appropiatly to the 2x factor only.

    am I doing something wrong?
    Is something not working properly with my alphatron?

    Ok, I have the answer... Rene from the Alphatron team came through with the answer (thank you Rene)... to anyone who has an alphatron EVF, shooting with an anamorphic lens or adapter and would like to view his image "unsqueezed" - meaning normal view:

    In Manu:
    Marker Mode: 2.35:1 (I tend to set it to color red)
    Scan mode: ZERO
    Aspect Mode: choose the anamorphic lens factor you are using: 1.3x, 1.5x, 2x
    and that's it... the image will "unsqueeze" in the EVF.

      Didn't even know they had all these new options or a new update. Thanks for the info but actually the 2:35 always worked perfect for my SLR Anamorphot.

        That is awesome news!! Thanks for posting this! Now the big question I have is will the Alphatron not only desqueeze the footage but also pass the desqueeze footage out of the HDMI port so it can be viewed on an external monitor??

        Thanks again!
