NAB 2014: Sony B4 2/3" to PL Adapter

Complimenting Sony's new ENG/EFP Build-Up Kit for the F5/F55 is their new B4 2/3" to PL optical adapter.

When you switch the F5 or F55 to 2K Center Crop mode, this adapter allows you to use your 2/3" lenses with only one-stop of light loss, and provides a fully functional ENG-style camera package. Watch my video above to learn more!
