  • Simple question, Can I use EF-S lenses?

    I feel like an idiot asking, I've heard you can use EF-s lenses on the bmcc EF? Just making sure before I pull the trigger ordering a few.


    cheers

        BMD won't ever say that EF-S is supported.

        I have used several EF-S lenses, and they've worked well.

          The main differences (only) between EF and EF-S is the rear element sticks out a little further, and have APS-C image circles. It makes it cheaper to make wider angle lenses for the smaller APS-C format. You can't use EF-S on a full frame camera: The mirror will slap. However, the mount and therefore the flange depth are identical.

            So does Image Stabalization work on the ef-s lenses on the bmcc? please don't tell me i don't need i.s. I absolutely NEED it. Just had a 3 day shoot saved by it last week. Had a gh2 without i.s. on a 4' slider, had all kinds of jitter when sliding. switched to my Canon 60d with 17-55 i.s. and the same exact shot was perfectly smooth. Tried to fix the non i.s. shots in post and u could see the warping. luckily we only used the non-i.s. for 1 shot which we reshot with I.S.
            If I can get my canon 17-55 with i.s. on the Bmcc then my mind is made up the bmcc is my next camera. I love that lens and seems like a good match for the small sensor of the bmcc.

              As far as I've heard, IS doesn't work at all with the current firmware build. But if it will work for EF, it will work with EF-S too. Can't imaging there would be a difference in the IS electronics.

                thx Kyle, so is there any word from Black Magic that future firmware will work with i.s. ?

                  IS is due in the next firmware update.

                  I've seen it working.
