In this video, we are taking a look at Freewells anamorphic lens for the DJI Osmo Pocket. An anamorphic lens gives you that nice widescreen aspect ratio that you see in Hollywood films. There are ways to fake this look by adding black bars to your edit or cropping your video, but true anamorphic footage captures more data on both sides of the video with a much wider field of view.
The way it works is when you capture video when using the anamorphic lens on your Osmo Pocket, it squishes all the extra data into a tradition 16:9 aspect ratio video. If you play the video back you will notice this squished look. This is because the video needs to be desqueezed. This can be done in most video editing apps including mobile editing apps such as LumaFusion. In this video, I provide some nice samples of anamorphic footage captured on the Omso Pocket as well as a basic tutorial on how to desqueeze your anamorphic footage on an iPad in LumaFusion.
