Kinor 16 for the BMPCC?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how much frame coverage LOMO's 16mm lenses get?  Will the Kinor 16 lenses cover the BMPCC's S16 sensor?


I ask because Kinor 16 lenses are dirt cheap on ebay, right now I can only find this one but I seem to recall there being a few more options (a 10mm and an 8mm and some longer options maybe?)

Maybe.. depends on the lens I think. Wide angles are the risky ones.


Someone is selling a Kinor 10-100mm zoom here and says it covers the Ikonoscop sensor. At 10.56 x 5.94 mm the Ikonoskop sensor is a bit smaller than the BMPCC though (12,48 x 7,02)




If someone owns such a lens and a GH2 + adapter it would be easy to test and add to the list I'm making:

Any info on this? I recently acquired 6 lenses and a kinor 16mm camera and i am really thrilled by the possibility of using them with the Blackmagic S16 camera.


I should try this adapter on my OM-D E-M5, but its kinda expensive for just experiment purpose at the moment.

kinda shooting myself in the foot here, would like to grab some more of these in different focal lengths before they get to retarded level pricing, but, oh well. maybe the karma will do me good.   :D  If anyone finds the 15mm, and the 35mm+ lengths for cheap, let me know.  I'd love to just pick up the whole damned set and be done with it.


Picked up ciecio7's adapter.  received the okc1-6-1 fisheye (6mm, f/1.8, fixed focus) and tested.  Still awaiting the others.

(shot on gh2 in normal.  and ETC mode, it's great, no vignetting at all, which would make sense if there's no vignetting on the s16 crop)

hoping I did it right, but here's a screen grab on normal 

and using the cropping instructions in the bmpcc c-mount thread:
can't wait to try the others.
Also, just so you're aware, these are NOT small lenses.  This fisheye is rather big and heavy, nothing like the svelte little switars.  I feel as if I could put this lens in a sock and bludgeon someone to death with it, and then go shoot a skate video with it afterwards...

PS, I think I may have done the crop wrong, but I don't have time to check it right now.  There may still be some vignetting (I think I used the size settings for the gh3 not gh2?)  it'll probably be this weekend before I can verify, though.  Stupid deadlines.

Nice test shane. If you send me the youtube-file with wetransfer or something, I'll make an overlay with the BMPCC crop. I'll send it back to you so you can upload it. Less work than grabbing screens and cropping individually ;) Hit me with a PM!

      Hey guys,
      I have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro for sale, Canon EF lens version.
      Asking price is 450€
      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).
      BTW I also have a brand new Wooden Camera cage for the BMMCC plus the Wooden Camera PL Mount Pro kit for it in another thread

      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?

      Great condition lens + micro four thirds adapter. Used it on my blackmagic micro cinema camera. Lens is made for 16mm sensor. 
      $315.00 USD.

      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.

      Comes with a 40mm Switar C-mount lens, Metabones MFT to C-mount adapter.
      SELLING as a complete set. Asking $570 OBO.

      I've got a BMMCC for sale. I've only used it three times.
      It comes with 6 batteries and a charger, and a Smallrig cage.
      Another equipment I'm selling is the Metabones Speed Booster for BMPCC.
      Both are in great shapes. No signs of use on the Micro, and the optics of the metabones is perfect.
      Price is 750 euro for BMMCC and 400 euro for Speed Booster.
