A quick-'n-dirty question re. Kinetal 25mm
Posted 20 February 2008 - 05:10 PM
I've read here-bouts that the Kinetals (12mm up) cover S16. I've got a 25mm I'd use if it will cover a back yard conversion to a Bolex (or other) film gate.
Any comments welcome - preferably re. coverage of S16 frame.

The Cooke Kinetal 25mm in ARRI Standard mount will cover Super 16. I do not know if the version of the lens in Bolex C-mount will cover Super 16, the mount may make a difference.

"... the mount may make a difference."
Thanks, the one I have is Arri Standard mt. in a Les Bosher (sp?) adapter.
I'll screw it onto my ACL and check the ground glass - wish I knew what to look for.
Hopefully the circle of illumination of a 12mm f1.2 distagon will give a clue.
