Hello everyone, this is my first post in this great forum!
I am a newbie on film and i was thinking of buying a kinor 16cx-2m as my first cam, but i have a few questions about my lens options so please excuse my ignorance. :rolleyes:
In the user's manual of the cx-2m it says that the cam has a kinor 16 bayonet mount. Is this a different mount than the oct-19?I know that there are some primes and 2 zooms made for the kinor but are there other lenses (like lomo for example) that could be used on the 16cx? Any options to go anamorphic as well?Or should the camera be converted to a pl mount to be able to use other type of lenses?Thanks in advance!

Kinor-16 SX-1M/2M and Konvas-2M/ kinor-35H ( be called OCT-19 ) have a two difference lens mounts.
Kinor-16 SX-2M have four blades design, diameter 43 mm, FFD 52 mm,
Konvas-2M/ Kinor-35H ( OST-19 ) have four blades design with diameter 68 mm and FFD 61 mm.

Kinor-16 SX 1m/2M cameras can have many list of prime lenses :
from 6 mm up to 300 mm,
zoom lenses :
16 OPF-1-2M 12-120 mm
16 OPF-1-2M with 0.75 x front attachment 10-100 mm
16 OPF-12-1 10-100 mm
16 OPF-12-1 with 0.75 x front attachment 7.5-75 mm.

All lenses from Kinor-16 series made at LOMO and a some lenses have similar optical blocks,like from 35 mm film cameras.

If you wish use anamorphic lenses.
You can have a few ways:
1. to upgrade lens mount to Arri PL and use anamorphic lenses of 35 mm film cameras with Arri Pl lens mount.
2. To upgrade lens mount on Konvas-2M/Kinor-35H (OST-19 ), (theoretically, this is possible ) and use LOMO anamorphic lenses .

But, the idea to use of anamorphic lenses from 35 mm film cameras can have a some side.
The super wide angle anamorphic lens for 35 mm film cameras - 30 mm, rare and expensive lens, popular wide angle lens 35 mm.
But, for 16 mm filming, 35 mm lenses will have angle of view like " normal" lens.
Where you will take wide angle lenses for 16 mm filming ???

If you like of anamorphic shooting, may be you need go to 35 mm filming ?

Kinor-16 SX can be converted to Arri PL.
Kinor-16 SX can be upgrade to multi speed crystal sync speed version of motor with digital film counter and remote control.
Kinor-16 can be upgrade to video assistance version.


You can find of a more additional technical information on my website.

If you can more questions, can ask bu forum or my PM.

Thank you for the very detailed answer Olex, it was very informative!
So if i am looking for lenses that fit to the normal kinor 16cx mount i should be looking for the opf initials on the lens?
