Kinor 16 for the BMPCC?


slvs

Recommended Posts

They say it wont cover super 16 on short focuses distances. I have a Russian meteor 5-1 zoom and it has the same problem: vignetting appears on my nikon v1 when you focus closer than 3 meters at the widest zoom end (17mm). Also the official super 16 size (7.41mm x 12.52mm) its a bit bigger than the bmpcc sensor (7.02mm x 12.48mm) so... it might be OK??

 

The problem is that the only kinor16-m43 adapter costs 300$, which is more than the lens itself. If there were just a cheap chinese kinor-micro 4/3 I would be keen to buy and test...

I hear ya.  The reason I decided to go ahead and try was because even with the cost of the adaptor, the 12-120mm zoom + adaptor was still about half the price of a, say Angenieux 12-120mm c-mount, and the other primes I picked up for about $100 each were just gravy.  It was a calculated risk on my end, and if all else fails, I have some interesting lenses to have in my collection.. :)  Honestly, I think the 10mm end is going to vignette as the 12mm on mine just barely covers it and my 10mm prime does vignette (see the video).  Anyway, I might pick up the 10-100 this weekend if my budget allows for it (might have to skip on some meals, but whatever).  Although I sometimes think I need to just save the cash and get some super16 lenses instead and save the hassle altogether.

yeah mate, after hours checking forums and ebay the only thing i get is headache! And that is just to save a few euros. I can't help it... i'm always looking for the cheap, i always will!

your 12-120 looks clear enough at 12mm. Could you please check if it vignettes when you focus to say 1,5m? (btw.. what is the minimun focus distance?). the 12-120 is a bit faster than the 10-100 too, that's a bonus there. Do you think is sharp enough full open?

Just as an aside, I now have 2 Kinor portcaps from both Raf Camera and ciecio7 to use with my Kinor 16 -> mft adapter.  Both are perfectly functional.  Raf's is a plain black knobby job, with logo stenciled on the knob, no-nonsense and utilitarian.  The ciecio7 is a little heavier and has a neat little "slot" screw for orientation, feels a little heavier, and the knob is quite a bit fancier.  If we want to use car analogies, the Raf is a Toyota or Honda, the ciecio7 is more like an lexus/acura, just a little more luxe.  Both will get the job done.

 

I'll try to put up some pics later.

I have!

In the video I used all my Russian arsenal:
 

- Kinor 16OPF-12-1 (10-100 zoom)
- Metor 5-1 (17-69 zoom)
- Mir11-M (12mm)
- Vega7-1 (20mm)
- Tair-41M (50mm)

The opening shot and a few more was shot with the kinor zoom. Mines reads "2.9" on the ring as the fastest aperture, but I've seen other units with "2.8" on them. I presume that is the T number rather than the F, maybe? Of course, the lens says "2.5" on the barrel, so I think it is still f2.5. Wide open is quite "bloomy", the highlight bloom quite a lot.

Anybody else using Kinors on the pocket?

I like.  We may have discussed this before (maybe not?), but where did you get the adaptor for the Mir11-m? 

 

I just picked up the 15mm Kinor 16 glass, should be coming soon.  I think that rounds out the low end of kinor for me once I finally get a camera to shoot on.   I think (not sure) that the 15mm is the widest Kinor prime that won't vignette on the BMPCC.

 

I will say, that more and more I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and take a short vow of poverty and save up for a set of Elite or Optar Illuminas for S16.

Finally took my lenses/adapter up to Samy's on Fairfax over the weekend.  Confirmed vignetting on 6mm fisheye, 10mm, and even a smidge of it on the 15mm.  The 20mm and 25mm were both fine.  The 10-100mm is pretty bad until you reach the mid-ranges.  The 6mm definitely has a nice Terry Gilliam effect, though.

      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

      Selling three LOMO cine lenses in OCT-18 mount accompanied by an OCT-18 to ARRI PL adapter from Rafcamera. There are some cheaper adapters out there who simply locks the lens and then you rotate the lens out of its helicoid, a primitive and not very satisfying solution. This adapter has a pin which locks the lenses in the correct and intended way and lets you focus using their own helicoid. Changing lenses is also simple as you just pull them out and push them in. I have not tried the adapter on a camera since I never got around to buying a PL-adapter. The lens bodies are worn as Lomo cine lenses almost always are. There's some dust inside the lenses but no fungus or major scratches.
      The lenses are:
       
      okc7-28-1 28mm t2.2
      okc11-35-1 35mm t2.3
      okc1-50-6 50mm t2.2
       
      Covering SUPER-35/APS-C, not full frame.
       
      Price 850€ including shipping. Selling only within the EU (including the UK).
       
      I also have a set of franken-cine-lenses, very crudely adapted. I am getting rid of those, but selling with no guarantee. You could always use the lens blocks if they are problematic. To use them you have to have a thin m42 or l39 adapter as they have a very short working distance. I will include a short l39 to m42 helicoid made by yeenon, and can include a thin adapter to Sony E if you are interested.
      The lenses are:
       
      okc1-22-1 22mm f2.8
      helios-33 (cine lens made at KMZ, not LOMO) 35mm f2
      okc1-40-1 f2.5
       
      I have used these lenses quite alot on an EOS M with ml raw. The okc1-40-1 was my standard travel lens on my a7s as it is so small and covers full frame in 16:9 (dark extreme corners otherwise, correctable though).
       
      Price 100€ for the lot including shipping. Selling only within the EU (including the UK).
       
       
      I am planning to unload some camera stuff, and will list them on swedish ebay shortly, but If you are interested in any of the following  just PM and I will send photos:
      Prices do not include shipping.
       
      Zenit m39 mount, silver lenses:
      Jupiter-9 early and rare KMZ make 100€
      Mir-1 pre-series, KMZ 70€
      m42:
      Helios-44-2 MMZ, damaged filter ring but still usable. Extremely smooth focusing 50€
      Mir-24m 35mm f2 KMZ 100€
      Jupiter-37a 135mm f3.5 40€
      Pentax K:
      Volna 50mm f1.8, LOMO 70€
      Variozenitar-K zoom 25-45mm 2.8-3.5, auto aperture pin removed for easier use with digital cameras. Works in stop down mode now, otherwise it would have stayed wide open all the time. Zoom ring not smooth, but turns. 70€

      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?
