Hello all,


I have recently bought an Angenieux 12-120mm type 10x12 B lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Camera.


Upon buying this lens, I believed it to be a C mount; to my surprise, it is not. Could someone help me identify what type of mount this lens has exactly?

Not difficult to adapt, but it's quite a big lens for a C-mount.

I think you'll be hanging the camera off the lens, not vice-versa.

John, you may already be aware that those 12-120s don't cover a S16 frame, and are quite soft. I really liked the smooth manual zoom action hand held, but that was with an 8kg camera sitting on my shoulder. Maybe a rig with some masses can create similar inertial properties.


Can you just get an Arri-S adapter for the pocket cam?

Yes. Adapters are plentiful and cheap to go to PL and MFT but as stated this lens won't cover the sensor all the way.

At least not on the wide end.


I can't remember the exact point it stopped vignetting when I tried the same combo out (Angie 12X120 + Arri S to MFT adapter + Blackmagic pocket), but I think it was around 50mm.


Although my adapter was a bit cheaper.



Honestly, the combo didn't work out that well.
