A new tool for professional image makers using Leica M cameras.
The Leica M cameras, including the Leica Monochrom are already impressive digital rangefinder cameras that delight photographers with their feel and performance. By enabling the use of traditional PL mount cine lenses, the cameras can now take on a powerful role for the cinematographer, both on set and on location scouts. From director’s viewfinder to reference photos to HD video and more, the Leitz M to PL Adapter brings a lot to set in a little package.
Leica M series cameras using a full frame (24 mm x 36 mm) sensor, which is larger than the Super35 size that most cine lenses are designed for. This can result in vignetting with wider focal lengths and especially with older lenses.
