    Modified adapter.

    Now I just need some sunlight so I can test this baby for real :)
    Tried it in my living room and there is no vignette.

    Is the performance any good outside the center of the field? I'm surprised that it even covers the whole 4/3 frame at the wide end.

    Its made for s16mm film, same size as the cameras sensor. So its a perfect match.

    The BMPCC sensor is smaller than a regular micro four-thirds sensor though, they just have the same mount. Perhaps it will work. Have you tried it on your GH3?

    Anyway, subscribed to your channel a few weeks ago Mattias and have really enjoyed your stuff. One thing, do you have a link to any of the footage from using the OMD on the "in the wild" project after you made that introduction video and test clips?

    Look forward to seeing shots. I'm curious at what FL the vignetting ceases.

    I think I have some photos on my computer at home from the guy that sold me the lens which he/she took with a GH2, I can se if I can find them tonight.
    On the BMPCC there is no vignette due to the smaller sensor.
    Most shots in this video is either fully zoomed in or out.

    No Im currently in between still cameras and only have the bmpcc and bmcc so I havent tried it on a m4/3 sensor.

    Im sad to say that the "in the wild" project was canceled. I didnt post that video until I was shure it was going to be launched but it was cancelled in the last second by my employer. It is what it is I guess. I often get send half away around the world or on various adventures in Sweden so Im not to bumed about it. But its a shame that they didnt make the decision a little bit earlier.
    Im letting the video stay on there anyway because some people seem to get something out of it.

    Thanks for subscribeing :)
