    Kowa LM6HC reviews

    C-Mount 6mm f/1.8-16 1" HC Series Fixed Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wide Angle for the BMPCC I used this lens on a cross-country road trip, using the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera on a suction mount inside the cabin of a truck. Even looking through the window glass, when I switched lenses from a high end Nikkor Zoom to the Kowa 6mm, during the edit, you could see the marked jump in acuity. Given the lack of filter potential (a weakness for a native ISO 800 camera) I could only use this lens at the very beginning and end of the day when shooting in the truck. There was no room for a matte box system, needed to get an ND working. This lens will stand up to most any prime lens, and is a welcome (wide angle, finally!) addition to any pro shooting situation with the Pocket Cinema Camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Wide Angle Lens for the Pocket A great, sharp ultra wide lens for the BMPCC with low chromatic abberation and distortion. It covers the BMPCC and Panasonic GH4 4K sensor. Downside is that this lens has no front filter thread, but if you search diligently enough one of the anamorphic lens holders will clamp onto it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great lens for the GH5! I use this on my GH5 in 4K UHD and set the stabiliser to 0.1mm to lose the vignetting yet gain the smooth footage. Its sharp, VERY wide and has character. Not for the clinical hearted or those who hate flares!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kowa 6mm f1.8 works great on the new BMPCC4K! Yes I tried it yesterday (30th October 2018) on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and it loves it! I shot in UHD Raw using the Samsung T5 500GB I purchased from B&H a month ago and I am impressed! OK, you might be wondering how can an ultra wide lens made for 1 sensors be compatible? Yes, in post the was some cropping (only 18%) to remove vignette, but even what was left was still wider than the overrated Laowa 7.5mm!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review on mows 6mm Amazing lens for gh4. Very small and light shoots great in low light situations ( f/1.8) and is the equivalent of a regular 12mm on the gh4. That is hard to find for the gh4 without using any adapter
