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.

    LiveLens MFT Active Lens Mount is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as it says it does For those looking for an active mft mount to control the aperture of your non mft mount lenses, this is a great solution. I'moinly giving it 3 stars for the following: it feels cheap for the price tag and changing the battery can feel like a hassle (felt like I was going to break the battery compartment because there's almost no space to snap the battery into place). Other than those two issues, I am actually satisfied with the product. Just make sure you have something to mount the line and battery pack to as it can be a nuance if not mounted properly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works but it is flimsy The battery holder is a cheap plastic thing.The mark around the display is a sticker which was not sticking from day one.The adapter to camera lock is ok but the adtapter to lens is very loose and the lense is not tightly locked.It is functioning but it is definitely not an object of desire.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device I use this to set the iris on my EF lenses that I am using with several MFT bodies (AF100, GH3, GH4). I have been looking at this for some time but was reluctant to purchase it due to the high cost for such a simple device. Once it went on sale I snapped it up! Works great and easy to use. The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 is because I don't like the battery pack hanging off the unit via a cable. I would like to see another option of the power. Other than that it works great and I have no complaints. This will save you from using a Canon or similar camera body to change the iris on an EF lens, putting on your MFT or otherwise no-control body, getting ready to film only to discover you made the wrong calculation regarding iris (DOF, light, etc.).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This mount does what it is meant to do: it allows you to use Canon EF lenses on the Panasonic AF100. A cord connects the adaptor to a 9 volt battery that allows you to send power to the lens. This enables you to adjust the aperture on the lens. This is critical, of course, since the lens would otherwise be stuck with its aperture wide open. A word of caution about this mount and using Canon EF lenses on the AF100... you cannot use the auto focus or auto exposure capablilities of the lenses. Focus and aperture adjustment need to be done manually - using the waveform monitor, zebras and various focus assisting tools on the camera as reference points. The AF100 is a pro film-style camera, and it is meant to be shot with manual focus and manual exposure anyway. That said, it might make more sense to use manual prime lenses as opposed to canon ef lenses with this camera. I find that the canon ef lenses have manual focus controls that are not as smooth as some lenses that are meant to be adjusted only manually. Of course, if you already have a bunch of really good canon ef lenses (and no prime manual lenses) - it would seem to me that this mount would then make perfect sense. May as well use the canon ef lenses on the af100 if you already have them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If Feels So Great to Use my Canon Glass The Redrock LiveLens MFT Active Lens Mount works great with my Panasonic AF100 camcorder. I'm extremely happy with this product. I use all my Canon 5D lens. The F stops are easy to set. The lens fits good on the adaptor. Film making made easier with this Lens Mount. Thank You Radrock.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on my AF100 I use this on my Panasonic AF100 with my Canon EF lenses. While it doesn't control the auto focus, it does control the aperture superbly. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get double the use out of their lenses. Worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Suprised From the pictures and some of the other reviews, I was concerned about build quality. However, I was very happy once it arrived. The button panel is much more robust than the pictures seem to indicate, and the fight of the adapter itself is very tight. It's very hard to get the 9v into the holder - that's my only complaint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Allows the use of Canon EOS lenses on the M43 cameras. Simple and effective control of fstop with an up and down arrow button. Great device.
