Kinor 16 for the BMPCC?

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.

      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.

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

      Hi,
      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.
