At the Bench: Using the HDx35 Mark II with the Canon C300

The HDx35 Mark II is an optical adapter manufactured by IB/E Optics that allows you to put B4-mount 2/3" HD lenses onto Super-35 sensor cameras. This enables the use of high-quality, long-range HD zooms with the latest generation of digital cinema cameras. The new Mark II edition has a larger image projection to fully cover the large sensor of the Canon C100/C300/C500 cameras.

The new model also introduces the UMS Universal Lens Mount system, which allows the HDx35 Mk II's special split-PL mount to accept UMS quick-release adapters in Canon EF, Nikon, Micro 4/3, and Sony E-mount. The UMS adapters can be swapped quickly in the field - its unique design leaves the precision flange depth of the lens mount intact, so all your lenses will always focus properly when using the adapter. The HDx35 Mk II also includes a lens support post to avoid undue stress on the camera's lens mount.

Watch my video above to learn more about the HDx35 Mk II and see how it integrates seamlessly with the Canon C300.

Some of the most common questions we get from clients are about whether the HDx35 Mark II or HDx2 Mark II optical adapters will work with a particular camera. Sometimes the answer is more complicated than "yes" or "no" - things like sensor size and resolution must be taken into consideration. To make things a little easier, we've created a new comparison chart that lists the cameras that are currently compatible with the HDx35 and HDx2.

Client Profiles
Jonathan Barenboim is a director and cinematographer; sometimes, depending on the project, he's both simultaneously. On his latest project, for a series called The Table launching later this summer, he was tasked with bringing to life short documentaries highlighting the human side of the unemployment crisis in the US. Because of the documentary nature of these pieces, he had to be ready to travel quickly and shoot in varied locations, all with the same basic camera setup. Jonathan was kind enough to answer a few questions about how he pulled it all off.
