Sony EX-3 with 2/3" Cine-Style Lens - Experiences?
Posted 06 January 2009 - 05:44 PM
I'm prepping a shoot and considering using the EX-3 with the 2/3" lens adapter and was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with that setup, and if they encountered any bugs or had any comments.
I've used the EX-1 which was perfectly fine - would like to see how it does with the better glass that the adapter would allow.
Thanks in advance,

Also, as far as I understand it the Sony 2/3" adapter is not optical - meaning you won't get the added depth of field etc etc....
Is there a particular reason that you are using the adapter other than trying it out (which I applaud, BTW)?
It is possible you could get a better result from a 1/2" lens, but there is only one way you can find out for sure!

We do this all the time in our rental deparment. The EX3 has an adapter - the ACM-21 - that takes the B4 (2/3") mount to the EX mount. When using it with HD glass the image is very nice and very clean. The ACM-21 has a pin adapter so the servo works great and the camera has Iris control.
When going from 2/3" glass onto a 1/2" chip you will get a magnification on the chip - x1.375 - so you will always be a little longer. Otherwise the image looks fantastic

TRY THIS ONE
here is a link for bigger pic of the rig
I´m planning to use that exact camera/lens in a short film soon. Did everything work out, you said the images were sharp, any reference shots? How wide was it at its widest (I´m planning to shoot pretty wide)?
By the way, what´s your opinion on using this camera and lens without the support rods, or are they necessary?

it was very wide the lens is 4.7 but i guess it was a little more tele because of the end 1/2" cmos
i wouldn't recommend working without the rod support
it work very well

I would do it again - we used a Fuji zoom that was nice - anyone have an opinion as to what's the best 2/3 lenses out there?
