$350 OCT19 Mount Adapter For Canon Rebel T2i/550D, 5D MK II & 7D.

Canon 5D MK II PL Mount Anamorphic Lens.

The next big step in HDSLR evolution will be Anamorphic Lenses. Cinemods.com is modifying Canon HDSLR’s to work with OCT19 mount lenses. The site is a little vague, but it looks like they will be selling OCT19 to EF adapters as well as OCT19 Mount Anamorphic Lenses. Here is most of the info I could gather from their site. Thanks to Vision Wrangler for hooking me up with this info via Twitter.

Shoot them an email to get more info. [email protected]

“The Oct19 adapter and Oct19 replacement mounts are US$350 each

The Oct19 adapter accepts a number of Oct19 lenses, the Oct19 replacement mount accepts more Oct19 lenses but not all

Unfortunately it is hard to say exactly which OCT19 lenses will fit and wont as the same lens sometimes vary slightly in construction from year to year of manufacture”

Hello, I wanted to ask you something. Is this site a wordpress blog site? We’re considering changing my webpage from Blogger to wordpress, do you think that is probable? Also did you construct this specific template yourself some how? Thanks a lot for your assistance!

FOR 3D shooters:As many of you know, I have been doing 3D camera design and lens configuration for over 40 years. Beamsplitter have LOTS of shortcomings. A better approach is using dual anamorphic lenses on paired cameras.This allows easy reduction of the lens spacing without towing in much or even at all. Same lens allows cinema width coverage with a 16by9 HD camera. Contact me through my website http://www.anachrome.com for any questions, and details. We just shot a movie in Texas with these 3D anamorphic lenses.

Hi, some clarification please: I have aset of round fronted lomo lenses with OCT19 mounts. Will I be able to mount these on my 5D using an adapter without any modifications to the camera?

Hi Jared A,
The pic of the 22mm lomo anamorphic lens on a 5D is not a PL mount but an OCT19 adapter. Thanks for the plug though

We are trying to offer a lower cost alternative to people who already own or have access to a decent cine zoom and would like to use it on their Canon DSLR without spending a few thousand $s for other rebuilt 7Ds. These highly modified 7Ds are very nice but what Canon DSLRs will you be able to buy next year?

Owners of OCT19 lenses are much better off fitting their lenses to Canon DSLRs than PL lens owners

Hey Nathan you wrote:
“doesn’t look like the flange is adjustable. So if it’s not right for your camera (which it probably won’t be) then you can’t get infinity focus”
Please tell us how you know the flange distance probably wont be right?
How do you predict this? How do you tell you wont get infinity focus – a crystal ball???

I would prefer to hire in the new Zeiss compact primes which have EF mounts as the job dictates rather than adapt my camera, loose my warranty and risk no back focus. As for the price this seems very reasonable if this is what you want to do, but you still have to own or hire in the PL lenses.

Doesn’t look practical to me. The inside of the camera isn’t modified like the one from Hot Rod Cameras. If you read the cinemods website it says “Many PL mount lenses which are fat behind the mount will not fit without removing the 7D or 5D mirror and other parts”

“If you want to put this PL mount on a 5D you will probably need a Canon tech to remove your existing
mount as it is more than 4 screws as on the 7D/550D”

It also doesn’t look like the flange is adjustable. So if it’s not right for your camera (which it probably won’t be) then you can’t get infinity focus, and possibly nothing will be in focus depending on the sensor depth of your camera.

So it’s another impractical adapter like the cheap ones on ebay. Seems pretty pointless unless you own the 3x $50-65K Angeniuex zoom lenses with shallow rear elements, or the 2x modified 300mm still lenses.

I’ve noticed that people in the indy world love to make things complicated. If you have these types of lenses why they hell wouldn’t you put them on a red or film camera and be done with it? The beauty of the HDSLRs is that they are small and you can fit them in spaces that you can’t with with a Red or film camera and stil get decent results.

Also does it annoy anyone else that everyone expects things for next to nothing nowadays.
I find these to be fantastic value.

OCT-19 is the jewel here, not many PL will fit on that depth. But a lot of OCT-19’s will and theres some LOMO Jewels at the 3k dollars marks.

Ha!

If you aren’t going to spend a DIRT CHEAP $350 to own something like this then you definitely aren’t going to spend the money to rent or own the very limited set of PL mounted or OCT-19 mounted lenses.

On the other hand, you could always try to raise the money for your lenses by putting a bunch of 8 year olds into indentured servitude grinding something like this out and selling it for ~$35 on ebay.

That was sarcasm for anyone not reading it.
