Electronic Canon adapter for AF101 to be with us after NAB 2011

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

Interestingly I had a conversation with Erik Widding (above) from Birger Engineering who are developing the electronic Canon adapter for the AF101/100 cameras and it looks like shipping after NAB 2011.

Other great revelations from a 50min Vimeo video is that Birger are working on an electronic Canon adapter for the following camcorders :

The Sony PMW-F3

Arri Alexa

Sony NXCAM due April-May 2011

Zoom motor for SLR lenses only

These are fantastic additions to a long line of large sensor camcorders and just in time as only today I had a phone call from my good friend Tony who discovered one of the few Canon L lenses that wont work with the AF101 as it stands the Canon 85mm f1.2 L USM lens. It needs power from the camera to run the focus motor.
