Fotodiox has unveiled a new lens adapter, called Excell +1, which allows Micro Four Thirds and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema users to mount Nikon G and Canon FD lenses onto their cameras.
One of the most popular creators of lens adapters and speedboosters is Metabones. The company has been praised for its high-quality optics which are available at affordable price tags.
Nevertheless, Fotodiox is also providing interesting photographic equipment at even lower prices. In fact, the company has just launched a new Nikon G and Canon FD lens adapter and speedbooster, called Excell +1, which is compatible with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema and Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Fotodiox releases Excell +1 lens adapter for Micro Four Thirds and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema cameras
Owning a Micro Four Thirds camera gives you access to a suite of lenses and accessories. However, users may be reluctant to invest in new gear and, at the same time, they could have some older Nikon G and Canon FD lenses laying around in their homes.
Thankfully, there is a common solution for them. It is called Fotodiox Excell +1 and it consists of a lens adapter and a speedbooster. According to the manufacturer, it will allow Micro Four Thirds and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera users to mount Nikon G and Canon FD optics onto their devices.
The Excell +1 lens adapter comes packed with an aperture ring, unlike Nikon G optics, meaning that the aperture can be set manually.
Fotodiox Excell +1 widens Nikon G and Canon FD lenses, while increasing their speed
Beside acting as a lens adapter, the Fotodiox Excell +1 is doubling as a speedbooster. When mounting a 50mm f/1.4 lens on a Micro Four Thirds camera, it will provide a 35mm equivalent of 70mm instead of 100mm. Additionally, the maximum aperture will be one f-stop faster, standing at f/1 instead of f/1.4.
When mounted onto a Blackmagic Cinema Pocket camera with a 50mm f/1.4 lens, the Excell +1 lens adapter will provide a 35mm focal length equivalent of 144mm instead of the regular 103mm, whereas the maximum aperture will stand at f/1.
Fotodiox Excell +1 is available now for a price of $139.95. This is a $20 launch discount and it may not last for very long, so you may want to hurry up in order to save a few bucks.
Additionally, consumers who purchase a unit until July 22 will receive a Light Cannon Creative adapter, which offers a soft-focus effect.
