PL Mount Adapter for IO Industries Cameras

We have developed a mount adapter to enable the attachment of PL mount lenses to IO Industries’ cameras.

The PL Mount Adapter

Back Focus Adjustment

It has a mechanism to adjust the back focus by inserting a shim inside the mount.
This allows adjustment to obtain focus even when the back focus varies depending on the camera.

Installing a PL mount lens

The lens can be mounted in the same way as a standard PL mount camera.

Entaniya’s PL mount fisheye lens

Entaniya’s PL mount fisheye lenses are available in the following two types.

● Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 PL

● Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 LF PL

Of course, other PL mount lenses can also be attached.

Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 PL Test with the adapter

This PL mount adapter was tested with the IO Industries 8KSDI camera.
The Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 PL was used to cover the Super 35 sensor, since the camera has a Super35 sensor.

The above image shows the envisioned image circle of Entaniya’s PL mount lenses, Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 PL and Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 LF, when used with IO Industries’ 8KSDI.

The focal length (image circle size) of the Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 series can be changed by replacing the spacer ring inside the lens.

For example, when using the Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 PL with the largest image circle of 8.03mm focal length, you can capture an super wide angle image of approximately 190° diagonal. At the smallest focal length of 6.14mm, the image circle is 220° horizontally.

Incidentally, in the case of the Entaniya Fisheye HAL 220 LF, which has a much larger image circle, when shooting with a focal length of 9.14mm, which is the smallest image circle, it is possible to capture images with a diagonal of 180°.

IO Industries 8KSDI has EF mount as standard mount

The IO Industries 8KSDI can be fitted with EF mount lenses as standard.
Therefore, Entaniya Fisheye HAL 250 series and Entaniya Fisheye HAL 200 series can be installed without changing.
