The Kish / Bolex Series 1 18mm f/4 is a fixed-aperture C-mount lens designed for the Digital Bolex D16 Cinema Camera. Key features include:
- Super 16 Design. This lens was purpose-built with a Super 16mm sized imaging circle for use with C-mount cameras. When used on the Digital Bolex D16, this lens will have a similar angle of view to a that of a 54mm lens used with a 35mm Full Frame sensor.
- Fixed f/4 Aperture. The Kish / Bolex Series 1 lenses have a fixed f/4 aperture, meaning it doesn’t change at all. If you need to adjust exposure, you’ll need to do so via ISO and shutter speed. Additionally, neutral density filters can be used to fine-tune the exposure when there’s just too much light in your scene.
- Fully Manual. This manual focus lens has no electronics it communicate with the camera, so no lens information will be imbedded in your files. It features a geared manual focus ring for compatibility with a follow focus.
