There are currently many new cameras hitting the market, often with new lens mount types. It comes as no surprise that everyone is trying to determine the best lenses for their new camera system, while others are trying to utilize lenses they already own with a new camera. We all know that lenses often outlive our cameras, so it only makes sense to get the most out of them.

In my latest Help Desk article for HDVideoPro, I give a brief breakdown on how to determine which lenses can be adapted to which cameras. I also give you an overview of the different adapters available today, including mechanical, electronic and optical adapters, that will help you get just about any lens on any camera. To learn more about the variety of factors to consider when pairing your lens, read my newest Help Desk article over at HDVideoPro.

We frequently get questions like this: “Does my 16mm lens cover the Blackmagic Cinema camera sensor?” or “Does my lens cover 6K on the Red Dragon camera?”
