Old lenses gain new life on large sensors9 September 2016
Two new expanders that allow lenses designed for smaller sensors to be used with new, larger sensor cameras have been introduced by IB/E Optics.
With its magnification factor of 1.1x the S35x6K Expander scales a Super 35 image (18x24mm) up to 24x36mm.
It has been designed to ensure a minimum of light falloff and maximum imaging performance up to the edge of the larger sensors, and the light loss is just 1.2 stops.
The HDx6K is the next generation of IB/E’s HDx35 Mark II and allows the use of 2/3-inch HD ENG lenses with larger sensor cameras, such as the Red Dragon 6K, as its maximum image circle is 34.5mm.
