Canon Cine primes and R5/c
Re: Canon Cine primes and R5/c
I recently inquired via B&H and a local Canon rep about using Canon Cine primes on my R5c. Apparently they are not compatible with the Canon EF to R adapter. (I don't really trust either source...)
Is there a way to use Cine primes with an R mount camera (specifically the R5c)?
And I wonder what "incompatible" means. Clearly they'll mount via the adapter, so is it an issue with the electronics?
The PL mount primes are obviously not compatible, and the EF mount Canon Cine lenses will not have any electronic contacts, but I would guess that they should work in full manual. I have a set of Meike EF mount primes for my Canon C300 Mk III that I will try on my R5c via adapter. But I'll be honest, unless you're working from a tripod, or have access to a focus puller, a fully manual lens for video is a PIA to use. But that's just my opinion.
Fujifilm's X-H2 is a high-resolution stills and video camera, that sits alongside the high-speed X-H2S at the pinnacle of the company's range of X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. We dug into what it does and what it means.
Holy Stone produces dozens of low-cost drone models aimed at consumers. We look at the HS710 and HS175D to see if they stack up to other sub-250g offerings. Are these secretly great or more like toys?
It's small, light, cheap and extremely wide but is it any good?
