C mount lenses are used on 2/3" and 16mm cameras, so I'd be surprised if they'd cover a DSLR frame. Super 16 would be about the limit.
Hey Brian, I have been seeing some footage with these lenses but I think its the same guy and its all from a GH1.
Maybe he made his own adapter..

The GH1's Micro Four Thirds sensor is a lot smaller than the DSLRs and the camera doesn't have a mirror shutter, so perhaps he has an adapter to allow the Nikkor Cine to be fitted.
hmm. Didn't know that about the GH1..haven't really looked into it.
So the GH1 isn't really considered a DSLR?

Wow that is significantly smaller..
It's a smaller sensor format than say the Canon 7D or the 5D.
these lenses wouldn't really be "future proofing" either...say if I were to go with a 5D or whatever might come out in the future that is full frame.
Thanks for the help Brian!

(It also handles texture better than Canon due to Panasonic's superior line skipping, and it's codec issues recede with the "tester 13" hack.) Yes, c-mount lenses will work, but unless you find a great deal you're probably better off buying 35mm lenses that will cover the full frame of any future camera. If you want contrast, old zeiss for contax lenses are excellent; for a softer look, nikkor primes. And if a budget comes along, rent that PL adapter!
