Probably a dumb question... I’m new to the camera scene .... but would this lease be compatible with the Black magic Pocket 4K? Or would I need to buy some sort of adapter?
Asked by: Matthew
You would need an adapter such as this Commlite: https://bhpho.to/3wy4kLg But adapting lenses can be problematic. I would recommend buying this 45mm Olympus lens instead: https://bhpho.to/3dEI0XP

question

Would this work with a Canon Rebel G film camera? I'm looking for something affordable for class and if this works I will order it.
Asked by: Inamara B.
It does not work with my Rebel 2000. It focuses but the shutter does not work. The lens was designed for digital cameras and has a different firmware.
