I have a new assignment, and I desperately need an adapter so I can use an Arri 16 bayonet lens on a video camera with a B4 port.
The lens WILL work. I've already tested it. I'm just hoping to find an adapter that already exists.
To have an adapter custom made is way, way too expensive.
Thanks,
G.D.

We have an adapter to use Arri PL mount lenses on B4 mount. Add a Bayo to PL adapter and you'd be all set. This works fine and we've done it before.

Yes, thanks Mitch, but I already talked to you guys on the phone and it's WAY to expensive for me to do right now. $1,200.oo is much too much for me to handle, especially since the company I'm working for will not pay for it.

Thanks,

Sorry, I was thinking the other direction. The P+S Technik is the only real game in own and you cannot use 16mm format lenses on it, only 35.

No problem, but I just wanted to tell you that the lenses I would be using ARE 35mm lenses. They had just been previously adapted to my Arri S. I was trying to find some sort of adapter that is already made that would work.

Thanks anyway,
