Recommended Adaptor for BMC 4K Cam

PostFri May 31, 2013 11:01 am

Hello

Can anyone recommend a good adaptor so I can use Nikon lenses on the new 4K cam that is coming out?

Thanks

For Nikon-G type lenses, I'd get a Novoflex adapter with aperture control. I've tried several and the Novoflex is the most solid adapter.

I have a Redrock Nikon F adapter I use for my Rokinon 24mm Cine and it's awesome. It screws onto the Nikon mount and essentially becomes part of the lens. No slipping or anything weird. Works perfectly. I love it.

I bought 3 more Redrock adapters for future Nikon mount lenses I'll be purchasing.
