Is it possible to use Arri Standard/Bayonet Mount lenses on a Sony EX3, and if so, where do I get the adapter ?

What about adapting C-Mount lenses to the Sony EX3 ?

Thanks.

The EX 3 is a 3 chip camera with a prism, the film lenses are designed to be used with a single light sensitive layer eg film or a single sensor camera. However, if you're planing to use 35mm motion picture lenses rather than 16mm you could use one of the 35mm adapters which basically have a built in ground glass which is then photographed by the video camera.

C mounts have a flange distance of 17.52mm, which would too close.
