Pocket Camera and Canon FD Lenses
on Feb 24, 2014 at 12:23:01 am

Anyone using older Canon FD Lenses (from the 1980's) with the Pocket Cinema Camera? I found this adapter on B&H's site to potentially use my older 50mm, 28mm and 70-210mm lenses from my trusty old AE-1.

Folks have been using Canon FD and other legacy lenses via adapters on MFT cameras for years, with great results.

I use >45 yr. old Nikkor SLR stills primes on my Lumix GH1, GH2 & GH3 cameras, and also Sony FS100, and will also use them on my new Blackmagic Production Camera 4K when it arrives "soon". I use lens adapters from RedRock Micro, Metabones, and Fotodiox's "pro" line. I also use a Metabones SpeedBooster on the FS100 with Canon EOS lenses.

AbelCine's "FOV Comparator" tool has been recently updated to include all of BMD's cameras and at least 1 Panasonic MFT cameras. Makes it easy to visualize the effects of various sensor sizes on effective lens focal lengths and FOV:

Are saying the same adaptor can be use to connect your lens to the GH3 and the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K ?The adapter an actually fit the GH3 and the Black magic?

We have a large collection of Canon FD lenses, including some super fast f/1.2L primes. They all work wonderfully on the Pocket (as well as the BMCC MFT if needed).

Hi Walter - to echo what Peter and Marco have said...one of my favorite lenses is the Canon FD 50mm f1.8. It spends a lot of time on my BMPCC.

A couple of thoughts, though:

1. The BMPCC's 3x crop will turn your wide lenses into medium lenses and your medium lenses into telephotos. My 50mm lens is now a fast telephoto :)

2. I wouldn't spend $43 on that adapter from B&H. A $14 Fotasy adapter will work just fine.

Hope this is helfpul!

FOV crop factor: That's why I linked to Abel's "FOV Comparator" tool in my reply above.

Cheers.
