Aperture Control Adaptor for EF Lenses on Micro 4/3

Aperture Control Adaptor for EF Lenses on Micro 4/3

Pretty cool adaptor.
Red Rock Micro has released an adaptor for your Micro 4/3 mount camera. The adaptor allows for aperture control on all Canon EF mount lenses.

…..The Redrock Micro LiveLens mft is the solution for using sharp EF-mount lenses on Micro Four Third bodies without sacrifice. Where standard “dummy adapters” just physically mount EF lenses to the Micro Four Third body, the Redrock micro LiveLens MFT talks to the lens, giving you the ability to adjust your aperture without the need to use time consuming workarounds on set. Don’t work around the ability of your lenses; make your lenses work for you, starting today.

Canon Mirrorless Related Patent?

Past: Diffused light is not needed.

Patent: Aperture flare cutter used.

 

  • Patent Publication No. 2011-107255
  • 2011.6.2 Published
  • 2009.11.13 filing date
  • Conventional mount converter
  • Adjust the flange back only
  • Not consider the difference of the image circle, causing unwanted ghost light
  • Canon patent
  • Aperture converter having an adjusting means
  • Aperture and manual operation of locks available
  • And electric drive aperture, the lens can be controlled by information
  • With a means of communication

This looks to be a patent related to some kind of mirrorless camera system based on the interpretation from [EG] . We’ve seen the mount adaptor before, this seems to be related to it.

EF Lens Adaptor for iPhone 3 & 4!

EF Lens Adaptor for iPhone 3 & 4!

EF Mount for your iPhone 3 or iPhone 4
I was waiting, and waiting, and Photojojo finally did it. A lens mount adaptor for your EF lenses and the iPhone 3 & 4!

I love cool and unique “why the heck not” products. I hope to get my hands on one and adapt an EF 800 f/5.6L IS to it and go birding. That’s right…. birding with an iPhone!

The iPhone 4 version is $249 USD and the iPhone 3 version is $190. A steal for most photography accessories.
