I was curious if anyone has used manual nikkor lenses on the Canon C series (particularly the C300)?

 

I had a friend who used the nikkors on the Canon 5d Mark II and it looked great. Is there any difference with an actual video camera?

Hi, 

 

You could use Nikon manual lenses as you would with a 5D Mark II,  I've also used Zeiss contax, Ziess ZF2 and Samyang on the C300 and C100, all look great!

Yes no problem with Nikons on Canon using adaptors - I shot this with a Kowa on a Nikon:
