ADAPTING THE ANGENIEUX 12-120mm 1:2.2 to the BMPCC

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I just bought a perfect condition Angenieux 12-120mm 2.2 with C-Mount and I need to adapt it to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.
Using a cheap C-Mount/MFT adapter ring (very like this one:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321527133930) I can't find neither infinite focus nor parfocal zooming.
I bought the lens expecially for parfocal zooming, so I really need to reach it.

Does anyone have experience with the lens and can help me out?

- Are there reccomended-best fitting C/MFT adapter to be used with the Angenieux 12-120? Most says the Metabones one or the Ciecio7 Ebay Seller one. Any thoughs?
- How can I get infinite focus and parfocal zooming without modifying the lens?
- Is there anyone who has it successfully (parfocal and infinity focus) mounted on the Pocket?


Thanks everyone!

Hi welcome to the forum

Im interested to see this working for you as its a great lens you have there!

 

There are about 4 or 5 different ebay c mount to micro 4/3 adapters

I have bought them all over the years as different lens have different size rear screw in parts that hit the bottom of some adapters and not others - you need to try a few and find one that fits as they all have different size diameters that the lens can seat into

 

post a photo so we can see how big the rear part of the lens is compared to you adapter

      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?
