Adding a B4 lens to a modern-day cinema camera is not a basic process. B4 lenses are made for more compact 2/3 chip sensors, and to get the most coverage, some variety of lens is typically desired guiding or inside the mount. This solution is not made for all cameras. It’s specially for the Crimson V-RAPTOR and KOMODO.

Digital Glue has labored with Breakthrough Pictures to build a B4 to RF mount. They point out that this is the 1st expert B4 to RF mount for the Pink V-RAPTOR and KOMODO. This is a straightforward mechanical mount that allows entrepreneurs of B4 2/3″ lenses to use them with the KOMODO at Hd 120fps or UHD 60fps with the crafted-in doubler engaged. If you have a V-RAPTOR you can use a B4 lens to history Hd and up to 240fps and UHD up to 120fps with the doubler engaged. As the Pink cameras can do a heart crop on the sensor, they will function with a substantial array of B4 lenses. Heart crop mode proficiently permits the camera to use these lenses that are built for a lot smaller sized sensors. There are no optics inside of the B4 to RF mount.

Adapters like these are rather market merchandise and there are not going to be a ton of folks placing a 2/3″ B4 lens on a Purple. Certainly, you could use a B4 lens in a live environment or broadcast state of affairs, but that is also genuine of any lens. What you also have to remember is that this is a mechanical adapter so it isn’t heading to electric power a B4 lens and give you servo zoom abilities. You would need to have to use an more answer to be capable to electricity the lens. Of course, you could just use the manual zoom ring, but then that kind of defeats the goal of wanting to use a servo zoom lens in the first spot.

It’s crucial to realize that a modern day 2/3″ B4 lens will perform the best. Older B4 lenses that are not made for a one sensor will not give you the high-quality you will want. You will generally also obtain that when applying older 2/3″ lenses that have been designed for use on CCD sensors that you will get rather lousy chromatic aberration on a fashionable-day sensor.

The Electronic Glue & Breakthrough Photography B4 to RF mount will be exhibited at the Electronic Glue at NAB booth C4442 with a absolutely kitted RAPTOR.
