Hi guys. Now the complete post, sorry.

I have some Kern Paillard primes for my c-mount Bolex, and a Kinoptik 5.7 and two Zeiss for my Arri 16s.
U guys know where I can buy the BEST adapters from, to use the lens in between these two?
PLUS adapters to use the Nikon 35mm Lens on my Arri and Bolex C-Mount.

So, it would be:
1X Adapter Ring C-Mount > Nikon 35mm Lens
1x Adapter Ring C-Mount > PL Mount Lens
1x Adapter Ring PL (Arri) Mount > Nikon 35mm Lens

For the C-Mount>Nikon 35mm option I've found this one:
http://www.edmundopt...?productid=1459

So, is there any other places to look for? Or who manufacturers the best ones?

Thanks,

Flavio

If you have an Arriflex 16S, it is highly unlikely you have a PL mount on that camera. Most have the Arri standard mount, and a lesser number have a turret with two Arri standard mounts and one Arri bayonet mount. There were never any factory made Arriflex 16S cameras with a PL mount, and it is a very difficult aftermarket conversion.

You can't use Nikon lenses on the Arriflex 16S because of the difference in Flange Focal Distance. The Nikon lenses have a shorter FFD than the Arriflex cameras. I'm not sure but I think it is the same with the C-mount lenses, their FFD is shorter than the Arriflex FFD.

Best,
-Tim

And one more time..

Sorry, I mean the ARRI STD (Arri16S) Lens.
These are not PL as I reckon..

Any "Adapter People" you know, manufacturers, etc, please let me know.

Thanks,
F

Ok, Tim.

Thanks, our messages just crossed.
Yes, its Arri STD mount.

So, no adaptors really? Shame. Thanks for the answer anyway.

I better probably try to find adaptor to use Arri STD lens on my Sony DSLR camera. I think something like this, would work:
http://forum.getdpi....ead.php?p=98467

And buy the adaptor to use Arri ST lens on my bolex, as I'm sure I saw this somewhere, not sure...

Am trying to make the most of my equipment using adaptors, so I can use the le s around the other bodies whenever possible.

Thanks for any info.

I've found this one to use my Arri STD Lens on a Bolex C Mount camera:
http://www.visualpro...&Cat2=49#bigPic

The adapters I need are:
Arri STD lens ADAPTER to C-Mount Camera
Arri STD lens ADAPTER to NIKON F-Mount Camera
NIKON F lens ADAPTER to C-Mount cameras.

With these I 'm fully covered to use my lens (the possible ones) all around the bodies I have.

Any help on brand, model, etc would be greatly appreciated.
I'd like to find some really good new ones, if possible from the same manufacturer.

Thanks,
F

FLAVIO, pm me, I have a Nikon F to C mount adapter for sale, cheap. The only reason it's cheap is because I got away from Nikon Lenses, it has hardly been used and is in pristine condition.
