Just got my MFT BMC

PostThu Mar 28, 2013 8:56 am

Now THAT was a real surprise, when the UPS guy knocked at my door.
Didn't see this coming.

Oh boy, can't wait till the PL adapter arrives, so I can give some cineglass a test ride.

I don't think quite yet. But soon. Frank is on the beta list so he gets one early.

Congrats, Frank! Couldn't have happened to a more handsome fellow. ;-)

Question: If you can talk about it, what do the IRIS & FOCUS buttons do on a BMCC-MFT camera?

Hey Frank, I watched your Snow Bells video uploaded on December 9, 2012 and it's by far one of the best BMCC videos I've seen to date...


I'm curious, but you shot the Snow Bells months before you got your MFT beta camera? What version was Snow Bells shot on, BMCC MFT or EF?

You shot Snow Bells with a Canon lens, if it was MFT, what adapter did you use? :P

Frank has both versions. Snow Bells was shot on the EF mount version.

There are no electronics on the MTF mount so no way of controlling the aperture of Canon EF lenses unless you use a very expensive adaptor like the MTF Services Live Mount adaptors:
