Quick Tip: Using the OptiTek Mark II Adapter with Sony F5/F55

We've recently received a number of calls asking about the functionality of the OptiTek Mark II on Sony cameras (F3/F5/F55). In today's Quick Tip, I will take you through the steps to get the adapter up and running.

It's important to remember that every time you repower the camera or change lenses, you have to reinitialize the iris of the lens to the adaptor. This requires pushing the "+" button for at least one second. Watch my video above to learn exactly how to set up the adapter and make sure to download this helpful OptiTek Quick Start Guide created by Sony.

Tutorials & Guides
Several months ago, Sony released a new user-changeable 2K optical low pass filter for their F5 and F55 cameras. The filters are incredibly easy to swap out by loosening just a single Philips screw in the upper right hand corner (yellow arrow in first picture above) of the filter. Simply slide the 4K filter to the right, and pull it away from the camera. The 2K filter then snaps right in, slides to the right, and is held in place with the same Philips screw.
