  • Angenieux – 25mm – f0.95 A beautiful lens, although I’ve always preferred wide angles lenses… But that’s personal. I find it a bit chirurgical… But the fast aperture and the color rendition make it a beast in some shooting scenarios!

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

V6x17 17-102mm f/2.0 Canon Tv Zoom Lens (with ND 2X)

 

Seems to work great. The out of focus backgrounds look weird, not so pleasing.

 

The color grading was unusual hard to get nice, and most shots were over-exposed. Probably not related to the lens though, It was very harsh sunlight and the screen was very hard to see.

So, I'm interested in picking up a Carl Zeiss Jena Tevidon 16/1.8 Lens for my BMPCC, but I am seeing that some machining is needed for it to work properly.  I was wondering if this Tevidon to C-mount adapter (paired with a c-mount to mft adapter) would do the trick?  Would two adapters cause more focus concerns?  Thanks!

thats not an adapter it s the back mount off a Zeiss Tevidon , so  its is no use , your Tevidon will already have one of the on the back of it anyhow as they are made with it attached!

 

You need a lathe to machine the rear of the Tevidon so it fits a cmount adapter

 

OR buy  A Fujinon (made in Japan not Fujian made in China) 16mm as the Zeiss and Fujinon are almost identical optically

in shootouts its almost impossibe to tell them appart

 

the 25mm f1.4 and 35mm f1.7 Fujinons are Distagon equivialnts they are that good, I use them alot

I just bought the Meteor 5-1 17-69mm f1.9 zoom for my BMPCC... but i'm not really clear from the thread above about which M42-MFT adaptor is going to fit best... and where to get it from. The Rainbowimaging one mentioned above is no longer available. Here's some ebay options

 

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=m42-m4%2F3&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xm42-m4%2F3+adaptor&_nkw=m42-m4%2F3+adaptor&_sacat=0

 

any suggestions?

Best and cheapest C Mount lens if you can modify the mount.

COSMICAR 12.5 f1.8 got it for only $35 on eBay. Fully covers the sensor. Only downside can't film wide open.

I've tried adapting this lens with a regular M42 mount adapter, and it doesn't work. The only adapter I've found made specifically for that lens is this (expensive) one from ciecio7:

I gotta' say, I'm real appreciative of this thread. I recently bought a BMPCC w/the adaptor- and really needed this list. Thank you. Wondering if anyone knows if the HJ21ex7.8B (

ENG 1/2inch Wide Standard Telephoto Lens) can be adapted for the BMPCC.... anyone know?

@andy lee Fujinon don't make a 16mm that covers 1 inch format. They do make a 17mm though but it's incredibly hard to modify. I managed to modify one myself but the image circle is still quite small, it didn't cover gh4 4K modes, it may almost cover bmpcc but I still think it may vignette.

I've been wondering about that 17mm. I have the 12.5mm, the 25mm and the 35mm. I really like the lenses, but there is a big hole in the normal range on the BMPCC, without the 17mm. Do you think it would cover without vignetting in 2:35? Also, what did the modify entail?

@mercer Hard to say, it was a while ago now and I don't have the lens with me. The vignette was quite big though, what's the difference in sensor size between GH4 4K and BMPCC? post up a little diagram.

The mod is pretty hard to be honest. I used a lathe to cut down the silver/brass metal tube protruding out of the back of the lens, down to where the threads start. After that I used a dremel to painstakingly grind down the rear protrusion that comes out further than the rear element. This is difficult because if you slip you ruin the lens. It took quite a long time.

I agree a 17mm would have been so nice, I was pretty bummed it didn't cover as it's also very small and light, it's a really good size.

Has anyone tried the Modified Computar 12.5mm /f1.3 c-mount lens?  It claims it fits the Pocket.

I was wondering if this is legit.

 

Cheers.

Yes. It's a decent lens and has quirky triangle aperture. :glasses:

That seller is notorious for giving wrong/misleading information though. Also that price is fairly high.

Yeah, that should work with it. If you're looking for a 12.5mm, I have two extra copies I am looking to sell that both cover the sensor and fit into the adapters without modification... the Fujinon 12.5mm f/1.4 and a Cosmicar 12.5mm f/1.9.

Yeah, I just got burned with the 15mm Angenieux... It's my own fault really. He listed some of the flaws, but never mentioned anything about the focus. Since he mentioned the flaws, I stupidly overlooked the focus and sure enough, the focus ring is a little too stiff. Do you know how complex it is to relube focus mechanisms? Or a pro that works with these old c-mounts?

I would send it to http://ekoecamera.com/lens-service/ , he is the guru when it comes to C-mount.

      For sale a rare 1937 Leitz Hektor Rapid 27mm f1.4 cinema lens (s/n 417161) for the Bolex H16 cinema camera. The lens covers full m43 sensor with a little vignetting and soft corners, great for cropped sensor of BMPCC, BMMCC, BMPCC4K (S16 mode). Examples of photos taken on a Lumix GX800 camera.
      The condition for its age is excellent: the case is clean with little signs of use, there are some dust and a bubble inside (this is typical of pre-war Leitz lenses), I did not notice the effect on the picture. The lens has been professionally serviced. A complete disassembly, cleaning and lubrication was carried out. The focus and aperture rings spin smoothly and effortlessly. The diaphragm is clean, 10 blades. The kit includes the original hood, front cap and c-mount adapter - m43 (MFT) with rear cap. There is focus on infinity. I will send the lens by mail worldwide.
      I shot this video with this lens Leitz Hektor Rapid 2.7cm f/1.4 on a Lumix GX800 camera: https://youtu.be/uIRKYGp6tg8

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?

      C100 Mark II + Extra Battery (Original) + HardCase in perfect condition
      Price: 2800 + Shipping.
      I'm based in Spain but I can ship everywhere, shipping costs are around 50-100 and it will travel in the HardCase (included in the price) so it will be just fine :)
      This is the most reliable camera that I've ever used. ND's included, natural cinematic colors, Dual Pixel, amazingly detailed 1080p from an internal 4K downsampling process (made in camera), dual slot sd card recording, etc etc, just 100 % proffesional.
      I'm selling it just because I allways work with a cameraman which is fully equiped, so I'm not using mine enought.. ¡sadly!

      Each of my lenses comes with 16:9 adaptors (which adapt the lenses to EF bodies, with de-clicked aperture and AF confirmation). 
      I have the following ZF.2 lenses: 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0 (Makro Planar), 100mm f/1.4 (Makro Planar).
