SLR magic / CCTV lenses


Recommended Posts

When I first saw the SLR magic lenses I was still in the Canon world of 5dMarkII and paid not too much atention to them at that point. But now in the light of Digital Bolex with and the discovery of c mount along with it. I came across with all sorts of c mount lenses of wich most prominently sold are the Chinese CCTV lenses. From them the most notable are the 25mm and 35mm lenses. I bought them to be used with my NIkon V1.. and boy do those 16-20 euro Fujians deliver in price performance.


So today I went back checking out SLR magic and their products. Only to find out that the most of them seem to be different kinds of CCTV lenses. So with no chainges execpt the SLR magic name on them or with different coloured rubberbands and custom lettered chinese made mount convertes. I have to Glarify out that I havent used the SLR magic lenses my self! This thread is purely about observations that I made by comparing product photos and reading product descriptions.


THE SLR magic 26mm toy lens Seems to be exactly the same lens as the Fujian 25mm f.1.4 (there could be a difference.. if they have made a custom order with more round aperture blade set inside)


Here you have SLR magic edition with a 3$ C mount to micro four thirds adapter probably glued on it. Extra cost for blue rubber pieces is abouts 58 pounds / euros what have you.


For compasiron the 25mm f1.4 Fujian CCTV lens c mount lens (search in ebay if the ebay link below is dead)


35mm 1.7  SLR magic

Fujian  35mm 1.7

now the 50mm F.095 SLR magic lens really is a good quality lens. and it's by no means free lens as CCTV lens.


When you look up Navitar 50mm f/0.95 for c mount it certainly looks the same to me.


EOSHD is about discoveries and I bet this might have been discovered before. It is just cheap in my book and I think you deserve to hear my observations.


They even write like vignetting of the 26mm SLR magic toy lens is a feature.


"Furthermore, it offers strong vignetting in the corners." straight from their page. 


I say its not a feature it's a c mount lens with a micro four thirds adapter .. off course it vignettes just as it does on every ebay sellers sample image who are selling the chinese Fujians it with the adapter.

      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.

      Hey, all. We have our rokinon cine set for sale that is no longer needed. Comes with a pelican case and assorted tiffen filters. 
      Lenses are virtually unused and was bought for  a limited project. Would be perfect for any m43 camera especially the gh5.
      Located in San Diego, California. But can ship at buyers expense (will be pricey for case)

      Price is $2000 flat for the whole bundle, good deal considering everything is literally brand new.
