The highly-anticipated Sigma MC-31 lens adapter will ship end of February. In addition, Sigma has also revealed the official pricing at $679 USD.
This adapter was announced back at IBC 2019. And it allows cinematographers to easily adapt PL-Mount cine lenses onto L-Mount cameras. Compatible L-mount cameras include Sigma fp, Panasonic S1, S1R, and the Lumix S1H full-frame hybrid.
Designed for durability, the lens converter boasts metal construction with aluminium alloy body. Additionally, a brass mount and locking ring ensures a secure connection between lens and camera.
Sigma MC-31 PL-mount Lens Adapter Features
- Shim Adjustments
The Sigma MC-31 offers shim adjustments both sides of the mount. The flange depth is adjustable on both sides – camera-side as well as lens-side. Thus, it ensures proper calibration of both camera and lens accuracy.
- All-Metal Construction
The MC-31 features an aluminium-alloy body, strong brass mount, and locking ring. It is also designed to be fastened on the mount of the Sigma fp with a screw thread. Moreover, this feature ensures a secure connection between the lens and the camera. This allows users to shoot steady without the lens rattling even after long-term use.
- Tripod Socket/Secure Lens Mounting
The removable tripod socket allows MC-31 to be attached to a tripod or other filmmaking accessories such as a camera cage.
Additionally, this makes it possible for users to use MC-31 with a PL mount lens that requires tighter mounting than the MC-31’s specifications. Nevertheless, this enables the lens to lock securely in place on the converter.
- Luminous Paint for Low Lighting
The MC-31 adapter features markings on the upper part in the same luminous paint as Sigma Cine lenses. Additionally, this feature allows ACs to replace or adjust a lens in the dark.
