With more and more LPL mount lenses in the market, the Leitz LPL MOUNT for Sony Venice provides unparalleled flexibility, reliability, and performance by transmitting /i lens metadata to the camera. Combine it with the Leitz LPL to PL ADAPTER for a complete package.
As cine lenses in LPL mount become more common, including the Leitz ELSIE native LPL lenses, Leitz have developed a strong, smart, and reliable LPL mount for the Sony VENICE and Sony VENICE 2 cameras.
Designed to function similarly to the original VENICE mount, the Leitz LPL Mount connects securely to the camera body with six screws. Other solutions that use the camera’s E mount cannot adequately support the weight of professional LPL mount lenses.
The LPL Mount is made of high-grade aluminum and steel with a stainless steel lens mount designed to accommodate all LPL lenses on the market.
LPL MOUNT + PL MOUNT ADAPTER
Productions needing to quickly and securely switch between LPL and PL lens formats can do so by adding the Leitz LPL to PL Mount Adapter. This adapter will be a requirement for many productions and is designed for flawless compatibility to allow crews to change lenses quickly and safely while protecting the camera and the lens. Compatibility with other 3rd party LPL to PL adapters is not confirmed.
The Leitz LPL Mount for Venice, as well as the LPL to PL Mount Adapter, each feature contacts for /i and ARRI LDS-2 metadata so lens information continues to be passed seamlessly to the camera with the LPL mount by itself or when the adapter is added.
Leitz offers a number of lens options for LPL mount, including
- Leitz ELSIE - LPL only
- LEITZ PRIMEs - PL or LPL (swappable)
- LEITZ ZOOMs - PL or LPL (swappable)
- Leitz THALIA - PL or LPL (swappable)
Leitz also offers an M Mount for Sony VENICE and VENICE 2 cameras to work with the Leitz M 0.8 lenses.
