I have been shooting super8 and K3 for a little bit now and I am thinking about changing the lens. I have the been using the standard zoom and I enjoy it, appreciate it but I am curious. The 8mm Peleng is a popular choice among K3 users but I haven't seen anyone's K3 footage showing of the lens. There is a video of the lens on a 7D:
I am also aware of the Zenitar 16mm fisheye.
Here is some info on the lenses. However this is in regard to still photography and NOT 16MM K3 cinematography:
Can someone break down for me what a 35mm SLR camera's mm translates to when applying the same lens to K3 16mm camera. For instance say there is a 58mm lens out there with a m42 mount, would the angle of view captured on the K3 be equal to the SLR still camera or would there be a difference?
Is there any footage online of someone using a wide angle lens on a K3 or a telephoto lens, for that matter? What would using A 200mm telephoto lens on K3 do? Would the angle of view be the same as the SLR or different?
Is it true that a few years ago one could get a modification done to the K3 were a motor was put in and once could have constant filming pre set, eliminating the need to hold down the trigger. Did this same modification also allow for sound recording? ( I doubt sync sound since this thing is loud)
If I were to convert my camera to super 16 I would need to recenter the lens so I could use my zoom again. If I re-centered the lens would i be able to use any other m42 lens on my now newly modified K3 or would every lens have to be re-centered individually?
Heres a video I shot with my K3:
I get scratches but it doesn't bother so much. I guess its those loop informers! If I remove them will the camera jam more or will the camera run smoother?
Thank you for taking time out to read this,
