By Canon Rumors | April 22, 2018 | Industry News

Before we go too far, we have no idea how French law works when it comes to bankruptcy or receiverships, but we figured we’d pass on this information anyway.

It looks like DxO Labs has gone into receivership for the purpose of reorganizing the company. DxO Labs deals with the software side of the DxO brand, as DxOMark deals with the testing of cameras and lenses. DxO Labs would likely be the ones dealing with the Nik Software plugins acquired from Google last year.

Below are a couple of “official” mentions about the receivership.

Patent:  Lens Mount Adaptor For Different Flange Distances

Patent: Lens Mount Adaptor For Different Flange Distances

By Canon Rumors | April 19, 2018 | Canon Patents

Northlight has uncovered a USPTO patent application that shows a design for a lens mount adaptor that allows for different flange distances with different adaptors.

The patent covers a lot of options, so this may be part of many more patents that deal with adaptors and lens mounts.

This patent also covers options for including lenses in the adapter for both wide and tele conversion.

Obviously there could be some full frame mirrorless camera implications with this sort of patent.
