Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera c-mount lens compatibility list

Is it just me, or is it starting to seem that the c-lens route is not terribly promising for the bmpcc? The wider ones all seem to have problems? Looks like native mft, or adapted superwides from other dslr companies are better? (possibly using speed booster for ff lenses).

 

At least if you're planning on getting cheap C-mount lenses I think it's not looking very promising.

By the way, the guys from Germany sent me the Schneider Kreuznach Variogon 18-90mm f2 zoom now, but Tungee already showed it works perfectly!

Interesting. How about "schneider -kreuznach variogon f1.8 12.5 -75 lens c mount"?

 

The range would be better but I suspect too wide for good images on BMPCC

The Schneider Variogon-zoom 18-90mm f2 will cover the Pocket Sensor!

 

@ 18mm and f2

 
 
 
 
 
@ 90mm and f2
 
 
 
No machining needed!

 

 

Hey! Could you tell me what adapter you used or what process you applied to the lens to make it focus properly (although you mention no machining was needed). Because I have the same lens and used a Fotga adapter I've got for my GH2 and I can' get close focus when on wide. Could the lens be faulty?

I was able to convince the Black Magic rep
Guarding the BMPCC on display in Burbank today to allow me to
pop on my beloved Kern Switar 10mm f1.6. I can confirm some
pronounced vignetting in the corners. The Panasonic 7-14mm f4 zoom
that they had on the camera for demo looked great.

Nice job!

 

Yes 7-14mm is an incredible lens. Hope they update it and widen the aperture to 2.8.

Wow tons of wollensak 17mm f2.7 on eBay. Seems reasonably priced but at what cost? Slight vingenette I can handle, being an f2.7 does anyone think focus might not be as bad as f1.5 etc? I'm going for that vintage, contrasty, dated look with the pocket cam. I don't feel terribly good about the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 though maybe be a great lens, I just feel something better has to be on its way. Thanks. Just waiting as patiently as I can (like the rest of us) ha

Best,
Anthony

And great post, this site never ceases to amaze. Thanks

I collected seven lenses for my ordered BMPCC.

Cosmicar 6.5mm/1.8 as a ultra wide angle lens.

Tevidon 10mm/2 as a wide angle lens.

Mir-11 12.5mm/2 as a normal lens(the image circle is just cover BMPCC).

Cosmicar 12.5mm/1.4 as a fast normal lens.

Tevidon 16mm/1.8 as a standard lens.

Mir-11 20mm/2 as a middle-focus lens

Angenieux 17-68mm f2.2 as a long focus zoom lens.

The tevidons had been replaced mount rings.

The cosmicar 12.5mm lens' mount ring had been modified by hand.

All the lenses' image circles cover the 1' format ccd camera.

Some pictures of these lenes as below.

More picturces taken by these lenes with a MTF camera will be later.

How do you adapt the two Mir-11s to the Micro Four Thirds Bayonet? AFAIK, the Mir-11s use the M37 screw mount for Kiev 16mm cameras for which I haven't found any adapter yet.

I got the Mir 20/2 lens with a adapter from Taobao (Chinese online market ).

The adapter was made by two parts. One is a C-M43 adapter, the other is a metallic ring. Two parts are connected by three screws.

The Mir lens can be placed into the metallic ring, then can be mounted to the camera. And you can adjust the distance positon by hands.

Pictures as below.

      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!

      I'm looking to swap my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for the equivalent Canon mountable Zeiss ZE lenses.
      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).
