Metabones launches Smart Adapter for Sony FZ Mount for Sony F5 and F55
>> Metabones have released an electronic adapter for Canon EF lenses to fit onto Sony cameras featuring the FZ mount. This is powered electronically from the camera, providing a sleek fit with no external cables.

Addressing the demands of broadcast professionals and cinematographers to tap into the vast selection of EF and EF-S mount lenses, Metabones® launches Smart Adapter EF-FZ Mount for Sony CineAlta cameras such as F5 and F55. Designed for dependable operation in the field, this new Smart Adapter features an extra large, geared iris ring and an easy-to-turn breech-lock to solidly secure the EF/EF-S mount lens. Electronic integration includes viewfinder display of aperture, zoom and distance, auto exposure, an assignable function button and image stabilization (IS) lens support. No additional power source is required. Adapter firmware is user-upgradable through the micro USB port on the Smart Adapter. Unfortunately no Speed Booster® will be available in FZ mount owing to physical clearance.

Since its advent in 2012, Metabones® Smart Adapter has become an indispensable tool for the most demanding cinematographers and other professionals. The Metabones® Smart Adapter EF-FZ Mount is available right now at US$999+applicable tax/duty from Metabones’ resellers in many countries all over the world as well as the Metabones® online shop.

Metabones®, together with its allied partners Caldwell Photographic and WB Design, is the pioneer and leader of two key technologies which have catalyzed the transition from mirror to mirrorless. Speed Booster® (winner of the 2013 TIPA Best Photo Accessory Award) makes lenses brighter, wider and sharper, and Smart Adapter breaks the lens mount compatibility barrier by electronically integrating interchangeable single-lens reflex (SLR) lenses and mirrorless cameras. Metabones offers a comprehensive range of adapters covering most popular lens mounts, as well as some rare and exotic ones. “Always on forefront of innovation without ever setting aside practicality as a professional tool” perhaps best epitomizes Metabones’ philosophy.

The Metabones EF-FZ T CINE Smart Adapter is compatibility with all Sony CineAlta FZ mount cameras and works with EF and EF-S mount lenses
