What mount is on my super16 Kinoptik lens??

Recommended Posts

So I bought this lens some time back and intended to use it on a bmpcc4k as a test. And eventually shoot on s16. 

Well there is. a problem. When bought  I was told it was a Cameflex mount. So i bought a cameflex to mft adapter. Unfortunatly it doesn't fit.

Anybody have an idea how to adapt this lens(Cameflex??) to MFT? Or is the best idea to make a mount conversion? which probably is way more expensive than buying an adapter.


Thanks in advance,

Those are terrible photos! How about pictures that aren’t blurry, with lighting that doesn’t have the details in shadow?

I can say that it’s not a Cameflex mount, which looks like this:


From what I can see, it doesn’t look like any of the common cine mounts that you’ll find adapters for, so remounting may be the only option you have. But it’s a bit hard to judge from those pics.

Those are much better!

I still don't recognise the mount though. Yes, maybe see what Les Bosher can do. Or you have Cine Facilities in Amsterdam, they seem very competent.

Well spotted, Simon!

That Kinoptik might have been for Debrie's only 16mm camera, the Debrie Sinmor from the early 60's.

Someone posted pics of theirs here a few years back:

Alright, thanks Simon and Dom for helping me out! Now I know I should get a mount conversion otherwise I probably won't be able to use the lens! I will get in touch with  Cine Facilities tomorrow and hopefully they can realise a mount conversion to PL. 

Thanks again!
