If you’re shooting videos with your smartphone, there are plenty of accessories that help to expand your possibilities. At NAB 2018, Cinematics International Co, Ltd introduced an adapter that lets you pair your smartphone with camera lenses. You can attach any professional lens onto your phone and turn it into a cinema camera.
As Lanxin Zheng of Cinematics International explains, the adapter covers many different lens mounts. She mentions Sony, Nikon, and Canon, but she adds that you can use “almost all of them.” The build of the adapter lets you hold the entire setup by its handle. But, if you use a larger lens, you should support the lens as well.
Zheng doesn’t give details about the price or availability of the adapter. For now, it’s being displayed at NAB, and we’ll let you know when we have more details.
This can be an interesting product for smartphone filmmakers, although it seems like it takes a little time to get used to using it. Still, I guess you’d get better results with a proper lens than the $35 smartphone superzoom.
