Here’s a great discussion with Illya Friedman, owner of Hot Rod Cameras, a company that is doing some very interesting things to Canon HDDSLR’s – notably: modifying them to support PL lenses.
Vincent Laforet sits down with Illya Friedman, owner of Hot Rod Cameras, a company that modifies HDSLRs to take PL Mount optics.
I found this conversation very informative. For myself I would not have this modification done to my cameras. I am more of a modified Zeiss ZF guy simply because I own glass and would not be renting PL Cinema optics. But I see where one would be moved to mod their camera for the need of the physical makeup of PL mounted lenses.
