Duclos Cine-Conversion suitable?

PostFri Sep 28, 2012 10:01 pm

I am thinking about the Duclos Cine-Conversion of the Tokina 11-16 with EF mount. It's all manual in focus, zoom and aperture - will it work with the BMDCC EF mount? Duclos has a queue of 5-6 month, so ordering the camera and the lens today probably will match in delivery date.

My friend uses his PL mount version with his RED Epic and it's always fun when we bring it out. Produces some damn fine images. I can't see why it wouldn't be just as good with the BMC.

thanks Joel. Good to hear! I wonder how or if it works with full mechanical lens aperture and EF mount?

I sent a Nikon mount 11-16 Tokina to Matthew for a cinemod. It's getting hood, and gears. I went Nikon mount for a few reasons. The Tokina performs like a Nikon G mount with internal aperture control. I have an MTF G mount adapter for my F3 and it provides iris control of G type nikon lenses. I have the same adapter for Nikon G to m43. I grabbed another inexpensive Nikon G to EOS mout that also has aperture control. I will use that on the BMC canon mount until I get the M43 mount version. (I need the eos version first) I only like to work with manual controls so it's perfect.

And I can drop all the mounts and put it on my D7000.
