I know little about the RED, but I have someone that would like to use my Russian Lomo cinema lenses for a RED shoot coming up.

I have contacted RED, they have nothing. Rafcamera may make such an adapter the future. I know of no one that has made or might sell me one. Does anyone out there know anything about mounting OCT19 lenses to a RED? The PL adapter route is not appealing because I have to keep the OCT19 mounts for my film cameras.

Thanks,

Check with Anatoly at Slow Motion Inc:

He's the expert on Russian equipment in the LA area.

OCT-19 has a 61mm flange focal distance vs. 52mm for PL, and its diameter is 68mm vs. 54mm for PL. So, an an adapter to put OCT-19 lenses on a PL camera is theoretically possible, if the outer ring of the PL isn't too thick. It might not be all that easy to make or use, though. The adapter would have to be only 9mm thick, about the thickness of an ordinary pencil.

A fellow named Doug makes them for $500 + materials here: www.longvalleyequip.com

Apparently he makes quality products too.
