I am pairing the Vazen 28mm with the Red Komodo. The image is amazing. I am looking to purchase diopters to assist in tight shots. Which do you suggest?

What is the field of view when used on BMPCC 4K? Does the MFT sensor introduce a crop?
Asked by: Jason
The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has a 1.9x crop factor. This would be the equivalent of a 53mm lens.

Does this lens mount to a Black Magic Pocket 6k with an MFT mount?
Asked by: Max
No, the Vazen 28mm T2.2 1.8x Anamorphic Lens (Micro Four Thirds) would not be compatible with the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, as the camera has an EF mount. Micro Four Thirds lenses are not compatible with EF mounts. You would need a EF mount lens, such as the Vazen 50mm T2.1 1.8x Full-Frame Anamorphic Lens (Interchangeable PL/EF). https://bhpho.to/3P2jLUX

What is the aspect ratio when shooting in the 2.8K 4:3 2880 x 2160 recording mode on BMPCC 4K?
Asked by: Jason
Your recorded aspect ratio should be 2.66:1, although most delivery applications will expect a 2.40:1 or 2.39:1 for distribution, thus you have some latitude to crop off some image from each side of slightly reframe left or right during post.

When using the 6k 4:3 aspect ratio on the GH5, ...

When using the 6k 4:3 aspect ratio on the GH5, what will the aspect ratio be when desqueezed? I've heard both 2.66:1 and 2.39:1.
Asked by: MASAITIS
This lens is a 1.8x anamorphic which will produce a 2.39:1 aspect ratio when you film in a 4:3 aspect ratio. You would need a 2x anamorphic if you want to produce a 2.66:1 aspect ratio from the GH5's 4:3 mode.
