Budget M4/3 adapture for canon + battery pack

PostWed Jun 13, 2018 12:22 pm

Hi all,

Just waiting for the arrival of 3 x Blackmagic Studio Camera HD 2.

There a lead time of 4 - 6 weeks for the lens I have ordered. I am planning to use the cameras next week!!!

I have got Canon Eos lens I know use for now but after a direct cheap adapter so I can use them. Doesn't need ADF etc, just simply so the lens will fit on.

Also realising that the new cameras now no longer have internal batteries could anyone point me in the right direction for budget batter holder/pack for the camera.

Based in the UK.

Well you run into a lot of trouble when using Passive AKA Cheap M4/3 to EF converters..

Because if your EF lens has electronic iris and electronic rings instead of hard rings.. Your lens will do nothing.. And your Iris will stay the way it was left last time on a photocamera.. :(

Try to find some rental lenses M4/3... I think you will be cheaper and better working then cheap converter rings..
