I was looking into buying a scope lens to the use for a Elf 16mm projector, I see so many different ones out there it seems a little bit confusing. I know that Isco and Schneider lens seem to be very good but also exspensive, and I am assuming that most if not all of them are 35mm lens...with that being said, would this be a good choice to use if you were only about 7-14 feet away from the screen? What kind of scope lens do you use..and why?

Be very careful, most anamorphic lenses on sale now are ex. 35mm cinema lenses, and as such, will not focus down enough for use in the home.

Lenses suitable for use with 16mm projectors are now quite rare, and therefore expensive.

Here is one that would be suitable. Why not contact the seller as he says he has several in stock.

Don't forget that you will also need a suitable bracket.

A lens like below video is suit enough for projectors like: Elmo, Elf, Eiki.


This lens can be found everywhere, it is called Sankor or Elmoscope.
