Lenses compatibility for Cinema Camera 4K

PostTue Feb 19, 2019 10:02 am

Hi,
I recently got an used Production Camera 4K, ef mount,
I have Canon 10-22 and 18-135 ef-s lenses.
Iris control and automatic iris works fine but nothing happens when FOCUS button is pressed.
Can anyone tell me are these lenses compatible with this camera or something is wrong with camera itself?
Thanks

There's no automatic focus on the Cinema 4k. The Focus button turns "focus peaking" on and off.

I recommend reading the manual.

Can you be more specific, which Cinema Camera 4K, the Cinema Production Camera 4K, or?

Sounds like the focus button is broken to me. Press and hold the button, you should see a square appear on the monitor, double click it and focus leaking should come on/off.
