PL Mount Modification Kit (Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K / 6K / 6K G2 / 6K Pro)
PL Mount Modification Kit (Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K / 6K / 6K G2 / 6K Pro) allows users to convert their BMPCC 6K, 6K G2, or 6K Pro camera to a PL Mount through a short modification process. All necessary tools are included in the kit. The PL Mount is made of stainless steel and aircraft grade aluminum and includes the PL port cap. Shims are provided with the kit for adjusting back focus and the appropriate shims are installed prior to shipping. Further adjustment should not be needed but can be checked using a wide angle lens and a focus chart. The BMPCC6K's own EF Mount screws are used to attach the PL Mount to the camera.
The modification process can be reversed. If you choose to go back to EF mount in the future, you can do it by reversing steps in the process, however, switching back and forth will eventually strip the plastic in your camera as the sensor block is made of a composite plastic material (it is strong but still plastic).
With this kit, the modification is performed by the user. Optional WC installation service for an extra $250. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Important Note: The majority of modern, s35mm lenses are compatible, but lenses with a rear protrusion longer than 40mm, measured from the PL flange, are not compatible and other lenses may not fit due to the shape of the original Blackmagic 6K body design. Please review the diagram below to measure the protrusion requirements for fitting your lens into a modified BMPCC6K. If you are still unsure, you can check the BMPCC6K Compatible PL Lens Chart here.
