Digital Glue & Breakthrough Photography produce 1st professional B4 to RF mount for the Purple V-RAPTOR & KOMODO

Including a B4 lens to a modern-day cinema camera is not a easy undertaking. B4 lenses are created for lesser 2/3 chip sensors, and to get the most coverage, some form of lens is typically essential behind or inside the mount. This solution is not designed for all cameras. It’s particularly for the Purple V-RAPTOR and KOMODO.

Electronic Glue has labored with Breakthrough Images to build a B4 to RF mount. They condition that this is the initial expert B4 to RF mount for the Crimson V-RAPTOR and KOMODO. This is a very simple mechanical mount that enables house owners of B4 2/3″ lenses to use them with the KOMODO at Hd 120fps or UHD 60fps with the developed-in doubler engaged. If you have a V-RAPTOR you can use a B4 lens to report High definition and up to 240fps and UHD up to 120fps with the doubler engaged. As the Red cameras can do a heart crop on the sensor, they will function with a significant variety of B4 lenses. Centre crop method proficiently allows the digicam to use these lenses that are made for much smaller sensors. There are no optics inside the B4 to RF mount.

Adapters like these are quite niche items and there are not heading to be a ton of people putting a 2/3″ B4 lens on a Crimson. Yes, you could use a B4 lens in a reside natural environment or broadcast state of affairs, but that is also legitimate of any lens. What you also have to don’t forget is that this is a mechanical adapter so it is not going to electricity a B4 lens and give you servo zoom capabilities. You would need to use an extra remedy to be capable to electricity the lens. Certainly, you could just use the handbook zoom ring, but then that kind of defeats the reason of seeking to use a servo zoom lens in the initial area.

It’s critical to have an understanding of that a modern 2/3″ B4 lens will function the greatest. More mature B4 lenses that are not designed for a solitary sensor will not give you the top quality you will want. You will often also locate that when using older 2/3″ lenses that have been built for use on CCD sensors that you will get pretty undesirable chromatic aberration on a present day-day sensor.

The Digital Glue & Breakthrough Pictures B4 to RF mount will be shown at the Electronic Glue at NAB booth C4442 with a absolutely kitted RAPTOR.
