  • In the DSLR filmmaking world, it's always been challenging and expensive to attach a powered zoom lens onto your camera. Recently a few manufacturers have offered motorized zoom lenses at prices of $10-20,000 – a premium price that keeps these versatile lenses out of reach for most digital filmmakers. DSLR zoom still photography lenses are less than idea for dramatic zoom shots because they are rarely 'parfocal' i.e. the aperture changes over the duration of the zoom, which spoils the shot.

    Older ENG (Electronic News Gathering) lenses are a breed of powered zoom lenses that have many of the features that a modern digital filmmaker needs. Affordable ENG lenses are easy to find, and can create great HD video, but making them work with today's digital cameras has been an expensive and difficult challenge. Until now...

    The PowerLynx Kit bundles together the critical components you need to attach a B4 mount powered zoom lens onto a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. The kit includes:

    The B4 Magic Lens Adapter - an all brass adapter with built-in optics to correct your B4 lens' image to align with the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera's sensor. There is no vignetting, even when the lens is zoomed out all the way. The B4 Magic Lens Adapter features a built in tripod foot with an integrated Arca-Swiss quick-release compatible base. Like most teleconverters, the optics built into the B4 Magic Lens Adapter will reduce the light hitting your sensor up to 1-stop.

    B4 Magic Lens Adapter Cap - this custom all-metal cap fits on the front of the B4 Magic Lens Adapter. B4 body caps are exceedingly rare, so we created one to keep the optics of the B4 Magic Lens Adapter safe when you remove your B4 lens.

    The Turbopack 9000 Power Pack - this all-metal power pack can power your lens' zoom motor for literally days of shooting. The Power Pack also has a built-in USB power output that is useful for charging phones, tablets, and even cameras. The PowerPack includes the recharger unit and a production-ready dual zipper case.

    6-Pin or 12-Pin Coily Adapter Cable - B4 lenses typically have a power connection that is difficult to adapt to a different power supply. With the included cable, you'll be able to run power to your lens from the included power pack. (Cable is for powering motorized zoom. Other specific lens features like iris control are not supported)

    Everything that you need to power-up and mount your B4 lens to the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera is included in the PowerLynx kit, and it all comes in a handsome custom fitted carrying case.

    Once you mount a powered zoom on the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera with the PowerLynx kit, it opens a whole new world of dramatic cinematography. Create a smooth & slow creeping zoom into a subject to heighten drama, keep up with your subject at fast-moving live events like sports or rock concerts, take advantage of typical 15x and 20x zoom lengths for more camera placement flexibility... the list goes on and on.

    Once you source a B4 lens, the PowerLynx Kit has everything you need to mount and power an ENG zoom lens onto your Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. Go handheld, mount the camera on a rig or tripod, and you're ready to add the creative possibilities of a powered zoom lens onto your Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera.

    Lens Technical Requirements: B4 mount designed for 2/3" sensor - look for better grade lens that resolves to HD resolutions. Impossible to list them all here. Even in the SD era, there are lenses that resolve to HD quality. A little research will uncover numerous lens bargains on the secondary market. You can easily find B4 lenses on eBay, B&H, Craigslist and practically anywhere that sells used video production gear, with prices commonly starting as low as $100.

    The B4 Magic Lens Adapter is designed to work with lenses set to f5.6 and greater, (most B4 lenses are optimized for best focus at f5.6 and greater). Please be aware that shooting below f/5.6 may result in soft focus depending on your lens.

  • • Provides Power Iris return, but not Auto Iris.
  • • Battery does not have a sleep function, when connected to anything the battery will always be on. When not in use, unplug battery to avoid draining the battery.
  • • This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted.
  • • 'Focus-By-Wire' lenses (such as Canon's STM or Nikons AF-P) requires power to engage the manual focus rings on the lens, since manual lens mount adapters do not power the lens, those lenses will not be able to focus.
  • • Set your exposure manually or meter using your camera's Aperture Priority (stop-down) mode.
  • • If your lens does not have a manual aperture control ring, the lens aperture will revert to its default position, which depending on the lens is either stopped down to its largest f-stop or opened up to its smallest f-stop.
  • All pictures are for illustration purposes only. Actual product may vary slightly due to ongoing improvements in design.
