The ABT cine SpeedMount mk2 PL for DSMC2 allows the utilization of the entire image circle of full frame lenses on the RED DSMC2 Helium / Gemini or Dragon sensor while gaining nearly one stop of light.
Compatible to all RED DSMC2 cameras except DSMC2 Dragon Mg, DSMC2 Dragon CF and early serial number Scarlet-W.
The SpeedMount is a focal length reducer with x0.72 factor that reduces the image circle of a full frame lens to S35 sensor size. Using the entire image circle of full frame lenses gives a wider field of view compared to using the same lens on S35 without the SpeedMount.
Apart from that, the SpeedMount also makes the lens approximately one f-stop faster and allows to show the entire imaging properties in the edge area of full frame lenses including focus fall off and aberrations which is often desired by DPs.
How it works
- The SpeedMount reduces the full frame (43.3mm) image circle to S35 format (x0.72) while making the lens nearly one f-stop faster
- The flange focal distance remains effectively unchanged, so all focus markings remain valid
- The new image circle covers 7K WS / 7K HD Helium, 5K WS / 5K HD Dragon and 4k Gemini
