Mysterious Canon Cine Lenses

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone on this forum might be able to let me know what I have come across here. I have acquired what appear to be some pretty neat Canon Cinema lenses. I have been unable to find any information about them online. I was wondering whether they are of any use or value. The models are as follows:

 

Canon J15X8.5B T1.8 Zoom

Canon J5X19.5B T1.6 Macro Zoom

 

They seem to be outfitted with PL mounts and are fully manual aside from the removable servo zoom box.

 

These are HUGE and quite heavy.

 

Any input would be fantastic. Thank you!

 

I would attach some photos but I am limited as a new user on the forum. I also opened a thread on dvxuser if you want to check out what they look like. Much thanks!

 

Cheers.

Thanks everyone. I tried the search engine route and while it turned up similar lenses, I found nothing that looked like the particular ones I had. Being SD broadcast lenses, will they be unable to properly resolve an HD image?

Those old pro video camera lenses are good glass and should be decently sharp in HD.  The bigger question is how are you going to mount it and to what?

I picked up a Panasonic G6 after reading the praise on this site and plan on using that with a PL mount adapter. the larger lens came with mounting bracket with screw mounts in the bottom. I suppose I will have to at minimum look into investing in a Manfrotto 509HD tripod system. If not an O'Connor or something larger. I am also considering picking up a GH4 to use it with.

The lens from your OP is built for a 2/3rd CCD.  You might have issues with the lens covering the entire sensor of the G6 when not in "TeleEx" mode.:

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band. 

      "The Scout is first of its kind ultra-portable camera multi-tool. It’s a universal cage and rig in one featuring a built-in microRemote Fingerwheel System that’s wireless-ready. The Scout has a rail system when you need it, or remove rails for a super low profile setup. Load-and-go, run-and-gun, point-and-shoot right out of the box. ultraCage Scout is the ultimate self-contained rig for handheld mirrorless camera and DSLR video" 

      RRP: $2,199.00

      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!
