Redrock Micro 8-090-0001 Overview

The Redrock Micro LiveLens MFT Active Lens Mount is the first active lens adapter allowing Canon EF lenses to be used with any micro four-thirds (MFT) camera, including the Panasonic AG-AF100, Panasonic GH 1/2, and Olympus PEN cameras. A 9V battery and power cable are included.

Canon EF lenses need power and electronic controls to adjust aperture. Without them, aperture is stuck wide open, severely limiting the usefulness of the lens. The Redrock LiveLens MFT presents a solution to the problem, delivering power to the EF lens and a control pad enabling aperture adjustment. Using the LiveLens MFT, you are able to set the EF lens aperture to any stop in increments as small as 1/3 or 1/5, depending upon the lens. The adapter is compatible with virtually every EF lens on the market today, including variable aperture zoom, prime, consumer-level and professional L-series lenses. It also works with the majority of third party EF-compatible lenses.

Whereas standard "dummy adapters" only physically mount EF lenses to the Micro Four Thirds body, the LiveLens MFT communicates with the lens, giving you the power to adjust aperture without using time-consuming workarounds on set. Quit working around the ability of your lenses, and start making your lenses work for you.

question

Does this work with the Micro 4/3 Active Lens Mount on the BMD Studio Camera HD? I want to be able to control the zoom of my EF lens from my BMD switcher.
Asked by: Peter P.
Hi PeterIf you are looking for something to control zoom remotely, we may have a different product for you. This liveLens is for aperture control of EF lenses when attached to micro 4/3 mounts that don't have electronics. It does not do zoom or other lens functions.I recommend you check out our microRemote system. you can gear the zoom ring and control it wirelessly up to 1 mile away. hit us up at [email protected] if we didn't understand your question or would like to discuss it furtherthanks- hope that helps!

Does this adapter also deliver the power for in-lens image stabilization? Does anybody have experience with IS-EF-lenses?Thanks!

Hello and thanks for the question. liveLens supports only aperture adjustment, it does not support IS.

question

I'd like to power this from an Anton Bauer power tap. Is there a cable out there to do that? Or do I need a custom one? What is that connector called?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's a lemo connector. Not sure of the exact type or pinouts used. You could try asking redrock micro directly.
