16mm to super 16 lens conversion

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm a newbie on forum and on lens for my new BMPCC.

I've just bought an old fashionable lens Angenieux zoom F1.9 9.5-57mm (arri ST mount) for my BMPCC.

Unfortunately is not cover the super 16 sensor on camera, 'cause the lens is a 16mm.

Is anybody know if somebody can "upgrade" this lens to super 16?

 

for pics here's a link

 

thanks for any suggest in advance.

all the best.

Corrado

I suspect the market for the 16mm to super 16 lens conversions may have gone, unless more Super 16 sized sensor cameras come out. You need an optical technician for these units because they're fitted to the rear of the lens and aren't an add on accessory like a range extender.

I had read somewhere that even S16 lenses aren't guaranteed to cover the sensor since the sensor is not truly the same as a S16 frame. Might want to step up to 35 lens to be sure but then you have the crop factor to deal with.

You could try a x 1.4 range extender, if you get a good one the quality drop off mightn't be too bad.

Got some links to suggest me? googlin' seems not find too much :(

The new cine ones I came across are expensive. Perhaps best thing maybe to check out ebay for the ones that Optex used to sell, they had the brand name Colcine.
