Metabones now available for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Metabones has introduced two new versions of its Nikon-F to Micro Four Thirds mount Speed Booster adapters. This time they are designed specifically for the Blackmagic Cinema and Pocket Cinema cameras.
The new 0.64x Speed Booster reduces the full-frame crop factor of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera from 2.39x to 1.53x. In addition, the speed of any attached lens is increased by 1 1/3 stops, with a maximum output aperture of f/0.80. The new 0.58x Speed Booster reduces the crop factor of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera from 2.88x to 1.75x, with a maximum output aperture of f/0.74. So for example on the Pocket Cinema Camera, a 50mm f/1.2 now becomes a 29mm f/0.74, and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 becomes a 10.5-20.3mm f/1.0.
