I attached a picture of cylindrical and spherical lenses to this toot.
Cylindrical lenses focus light into a line, while spherical lenses focus light into a point.
Spherical lenses are typically used for normal photography lenses.
We will start with some history:
Sadly like a lot of cool things anamorphic lenses have a military background and were originally developed by Henri Chrétien during World War I in order for tanks to have a wider field of view.
In a way anamorphic lenses are a kind of wide angle converter. What makes them special though is they only compress one axis. This way you can build an optical system that is vertically a 50mm and horizontally a 25mm lens. They do this by using cylindrical lens elements.
Alright you asked for it so here we go... #Anamorphic lenses thread incoming!
On this one you can also see the „classic“ horizontal anamorphic lens flare.
And another one!
Es bleibt spannend!
