Ever felt like owning a cheaper Komo… Erm, small dragon-like camera? Well now you’re in luck. The Sony RX0 II has morphed into a living, fire breathing Super 16mm cinema camera thanks to this mod adding an exchangeable Micro Four Thirds & C-mount lens mount, removable IR cut filter and fast apertures to your previously drab F4.0 action-camera.
Since the advent of very high speed ports like Thunderbolt many have speculated as to when external graphics adapter cards are coming to laptops.
Well with $250 worth of parts it is possible to do already.
This is an ingenious manipulation of the Panasonic LA7200 anamorphic adapter, on the Canon 5D Mark II.
The LA7200 works well at wide angles, especially on crop sensor cameras but at fast apertures, with close focus and on full frame DSLRs like the 5D Mark II it isn’t really usable since it isn’t a focussing anamorphic like the Iscorama and you get a blurry image.
