EOS M lens suggestions
« on: August 07, 2018, 02:03:20 PM »
hello everyone,
looking to purchase a lens to shoot highest possible bitrate video (even @ 720p and cropped, I dont shoot RAW videos) to fake a film look.
a zoom lens that doesn't have alot of reach for video only.

Can someone using please tell me the crop in video and recommend some lens for me?
are super 8/ super 16 lens good for the crop of ML new update?
I am currently considering one of these lenses but I am not sure if it can be mounted/ the image circle can be used without a significant crop in post.

SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 7.5 - 37.5mm F1.8 CINE ZOOM LENS

Pentax TV Zoom Lens 8-48mm 1:1.0 Auto-Iris TV Lens - C Mount

Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 1.8/9-30mm

Schneider Objektiv Optivaron 6-66 Macro 1:1,8 Filmkamera 8mm

thanks alot!!!!!!!!!!!

Buy high apperture manual prime lenses. Helios 44-2 is cheap and good.

I'm curious about how would you use super8 lenses on EOSM. Can you focus to infinity with them?

Do they need a proper adapter? I mean, they are D-mount, not C-mount, right?

The helios + the crop will become a 350mm lens, which is impossible to shoot handheld, not to mentikn the extra glass makes the setup bulky and ineffective.

Thanks for sharing these posts!
Very few super 8 lenses. comes with interchangable c mounts and 1/2" lenses also wrok in this 6.19x crop (super8 ratio)mode
D mount lens cannot be adapted with infinity focus

See the Viltrox speedbooster (works on EOS M).
