  1. I have a voitlander 75mm f/1.8 that works very well with an anamorphic, specifically Kowa C-35. On full frame Sony A7 series there was no vignetting. The one big catch is this lens was meant for rangefinder cameras I believe, so slapping it on a foal reducer on a crop sensor effectively turns it into a macro lens, and quite unusable. Haven't yet tried on Canon, or any other body yet. All I know is it needs to get pretty close to the sensor. Great photo lens nonetheless.
  2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cine-NIKKOR-25mm-F-1-8-Nippon-Kogaku-C-Mount-Wide-Angle-lens-ADAPTER-Included/112964898960 Great condition lens + micro four thirds adapter. Used it on my blackmagic micro cinema camera. Lens is made for 16mm sensor. $315.00 USD.
  3. Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 25mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter. Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 10mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 1 foot / .3 meter. Bought on eBay, used with C-Mount to Micro Four Thirds lens mount on Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. Optically in excellent condition. Inside no specks of dust, haze, oil scratches that I can detect. Clicks work as expected. Focus is smooth. Cosmetically clean on outside. Very good for its age. Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter. Very light weight, and tiny size. Smallest lens I've ever owned. Paired with BMMCC or BMPCC this makes a fantastic combination. BMMCC / BMPCC is super 16 sensor so I didn't need a speedbooster, and no vignette. I would expect to see vignetting on any sensor size larger than super 16. EXTRA Comes with a 40mm Switar C-mount lens, Metabones MFT to C-mount adapter. SELLING as a complete set. Asking $570 OBO.
  4. Selling my Micro camera, with a few additional goodies: SmallRig cage, 128GB Sandisk SD, External Battery solution. Condition of everything is good as new. Equipment has been cared for very well. Also selling 3 lenses used specifically with this camera. 10mm, 25mm, Cine-Nikkor, 40mm All C-Mount. With a MFT to C-mount adapter. Asking $1100 OBO. Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera - Excellent condition. No signs of wear. Records raw / prores flawlessly. Everything in box. Tested couple times. Super 16 sensor quite small, and hell of a crop. After reading all over the internet I purchased a few C mount lenses (Nikkor 10mm, Nikkor 25mm, Switar 40mm) instead of a speedbooster that would only slightly reduce the crop. C mount lenses worked amazingly well. They also benefit from ridiculously small size and decent fast optics. I am selling these as well on eBay. Smallrig Cage - Needed a cage to mount my monitor. This one is rock solid. Machined to fit the BMMCC like a glove. No signs of wear. Sandisk 128GB SDXC - This is the recommended card to get with this particular camera. Recorded everything from proress 422 to Raw 1:1, 3:1 without a dropped frame. Powerful card. NP-F Bridge - This is made by a third party but its construction seems of trusted quality. Allows mounting of higher capacity NP-F batteries to the back of camera in the native Canon battery slot. Does not obstruct the cage and there is zero play. Battery level is displayed in camera. Multifunctional NP-F style battery - Versatile battery features USB and 9v or 12v power. Fits the NP-F bridge perfectly and can power the camera all day if necessary. I was able to power BMMCC and my monitor at the same time with this. I used it maybe less than 10 times total.
  5. Takumar, Helios, vintage Nikon, Voigtlander owner here at one time. I would say that voigtlander and takumar give the cleanest look if you can call it that. Takumar you can generally find for cheap. Voigtlander is expensive but sells expensive so it's a wise investment. Helios you can find for dirt cheap, but the look is definitely subjective. The low contrast look combined with odd bokeh can be irritating, however the investment is usually low thanks to so many versions of this mass produced lens out there. Having owned a few of vintage lenses and anamorphics myself you really are going to sacrifice some sharpness, and chromatic aberration, for anamorphic widescreen, and stopping down is almost always necessary for a "cleaner" image. But thats why we crave these lenses.
  6. I have this camera, and am wondering the dummy external battery - what have you power this with? I bought the Juicebox battery sold on Amazon, advertised for the BMCC, BMPCC, and BMMCC. They told me it needs to be powered through the side expansion port with all the loose cables. BUT I was wondering if I could just plug it into and power through the dummy battery. Would certainly look less messy. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
  7. Thanks Mercer, this is all very helpful. It's good you know all of this, because it has been hell trying to find any information on it myself. I'm basically attempting to track down compatible [and decently regarded] lenses on eBay using this list as a reference: I started my research for lenses on Alan's site. The Kiev or Krasnogorsk mount lenses seem the most economical (aside from the fact that according to his articles mounts can be tricky and/or expensive in addition) as a kit. The widest lens of the kit the Mir-11mm some say vignettes too much, or is too soft/blurry/etc. Most likely I would just want the Vega 7 20mm. The long lens doesn't make sense because I have quite a collection of full frame lenses I could easily modify if I wanted the super tele focal length. But I've read mixed reviews of the Vega 7 so don't really know what to trust. I like lenses with some 'character' and won't mind a little imperfections here or there (as an owner of Helios, Super Tak, mamiya, kowa, voigtlander lenses I understand vintage) but can't tell if the Kievs are just junk or pleasing/forgiving junk. I've seen a fair amount of decent examples of Schneider Kreuznach Cinegons but there seems to be a whole lot of different types, either old or new in C mount or Arriflex. Then there's a really sweet couple of Cooke Kinetal's a (17.5mm and 25mm) which look drop dead gorgeous, but the price of the lens, and the arriflex std mount is painful. I also looked at a Cosmicar/Taylor Hobson 25mm C mount, which looks (from the outside) almost exactly like a more expensive Angenieux. And most recently found these purportedly "very rare" cine nikkors which sound too good to almost be true and get mostly positive reviews of the few I've found. My main problem is I want to experiment with this BMMCC without having to re-stock a full set of lenses. Ideally a semi-wide and a normal 50ish equivalent. I toyed with speedboosters but, again, $$$ for the legit .58x version and even then, a significant crop. Cheaper chinese .71x versions just don't seem worth it. Vintage & inexpensive super wide angle s35/FF lenses are few and far between. I ALSO have a Kowa 1.5x anamorphic I want to use on this camera, which is another consideration when purchasing focal lengths for this camera. The widest taking lens I can go on a FF is 58mm + vignette, ideally 75mm + no vignette. So if my math is correct I'd need a 25mm super 16 lens at the minimum to pair with the anamorphic (due to the 2.88x crop factor). I'm hypothesizing here because, as far as I can tell, no public examples exist, and I don't yet have the camera to play around. Out of curiosity 2 questions: How did you like the BMMCC? I know it's a pain in the ass from the get go, ie the buttons, menu, iso, etc. etc. But worth the 13 stops dynamic range, 4:2:2 color space, Raw DNG? Got links to those Angenieux lenses you're selling?
  8. Thanks Mercer for your valuable opinion. Looking into vintage lenses for the BMMCC, which are few and far between, as well as a whole new ballgame as I'm new to 16mm, Super 16, and C-mount lenses.
  9. How did you like this lens? Reviews online are few.
