Rehousing for KOWA Anamorphic Lenses

The KOWA Anamorphic lenses have been produced until the 1970s.  The KOWA Anamorphic lenses are rare and popular because of their small size and compact form factor. That’s why they are ideal for handheld, Steadicam or drone camera work. They are low in contrast and warm in color and can be made to flare easily. The flare is warmer in color rather than the standard blue anamorphic flare.

But the original KOWA anamorphic lenses are built with very fragile mechanics which tend to wear out. With the formerly offered rebarreling, P+S TECHNIK made a first step to improve the mechanics of these valuable lenses.

The rehousing now offered by P+S Technik replaces the original mechanism completely and equips the lens with more durable parts at basically same form factor. Thus, the stability of the whole mechanism is ensured and the lenses are thus less prone to service. And as an additional benefit P+S TECHNIK now has the spare parts for the entire mechanism in stock.

New – Spare Glass

P+S TECHNIK offers now also glass spare parts for KOWA Anamorphic lenses. This unique ability to replace broken or damaged lens elements with close-to-original P+S TECHNIK glass, protects your investment in these popular KOWA lenses.

Rehousing KOWA Anamorphic

The Rehousing by P+S TECHNIK is based on the historical lens design. After the rehousing, the weight of the lens is almost. The outer contour has the same look as the popular P+S rebarreling.

The 80mm front diameter simplifies the use of matteboxes for the production and the 77mm thread the use of screw-in filters.
