The HDx1.4 is an optical adapter that enables B4-mount 2/3" HD video lenses to cover a Super16-sized sensor. It magnifies the image slightly and corrects for the lack of a prism.
Key Highlights
  • B4-Mount > Super 16-sized sensor
  • Adapts from B4 > UMS
  • Maintains expected field-of-view


The HDx1.4 optical adapter enables B4-mount 2/3" HD video lenses to cover a Super16-sized sensor, magnifying the image slightly and correcting for the lack of a prism, allowing for complete coverage of the Blackmagic Studio and Studio 4K camera sensors and coverage of 1080p on the Phantom Flex4K, 2K or 1080p on the Sony F5 or F55, and 1080p on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, with a loss of just one stop of light.

For more information on the HDx1.4 with an MFT mount for the Blackmagic Studio Camera, please visit our HDx1.4 with MFT Mount page.

Broadcast lenses are available in high zoom ratios with wide apertures in a relatively compact size, making them a desirable option for many large-sensor camera users. Designed and built by IB/E Optics for AbelCine, HDx Optical Adapters mount between a B4-mount 2/3" lens and a large sensor camera, expanding the projected light to cover the image area.

HDx Optical Adapters increase the focal length of the attached video lens so that the expected field-of-view of the lens is maintained on the larger format sensor. The depth of field of the image will be closer to that of the larger format.

All HDx Optical Adapters optically correct for the different spectral alignments between three-chip prism block sensors, for which the B4-mount lenses were designed, and the single sensor of the large sensor cameras. HDx Optical Adapters are highly telecentric in design. They deliver a bright, sharp image across the entire frame with excellent color and contrast.

The HDx1.4 adapts from B4 to a Universal Mount System, which allows the HDx1.4 to be mounted on a wide variety of large-sensor cameras without shop service. It ships standard in ARRI PL, with available adapter mount options including Canon EF, Nikon F, MFT, Sony FZ, and Sony E cameras.

The HDx1.4 expands a B4-mount lens image by approximately 1.35 times. That means those B-4 lenses can now cover:

Blackmagic Design:

  • Studio Camera
  • Studio Camera 4K
  • Pocket Cinema Camera

The HDx1.4 is also available in MFT Mount.
