Using vintage 16mm lens with Original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Discussion in 'Video' started by iKokomo, Dec 2, 2019.

  1. I know this is more of a video question, but maybe someone here knows about using this vintage lens?

    I found a Rainbow TV Zoom Lens H6X8 8-48mm 1:1.0 1/2” C Mount Lens at a thrift-store that I would like to use with my 1st generation, 1080p Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with a Super 16 sensor.

    Whenever I use it there is a massive vignette and it is impossible to focus without closing the aperture all the way down.

    I know I need some sort of adapter, but I was wondering which adapter I needed?
  2. Is the BMC Pocket camera sensor size close to a 1" sensor?
    I believe the 'H' designation means it gives coverage for 1/2" sensors - that will explain the massive vignetting

    This link to adapter modifications for this lens may be of help? .... Lens Modifying - Personal View Talks
