The E-mount-camera-to-PL-mount-lens adapter features electronic contacts for metadata communication and lens control.
Each mount has the required pin contacts necessary to transmit lens metadata through to the camera, and, conversely, the contacts provide lens control through a 12-pin Hirose out connection to an ENG lens.
When the Meta Mount is used with cine lenses with LDS or Cooke/i Data, metadata such as iris setting, focus distance and zoom focal length are transmitted through the adapter, appearing in the viewfinder and on the monitor, and are recorded in the video file for use in post processing.
When the Meta Mount is used with an ENG servo motor-controlled broadcast lens, the Focus/Iris/Zoom servos can be controlled through the camera and are compatible with Sony FX9, FX6 and FX3 hand grips, RCP or the camera’s web GUI. This allows for full control of an ENG broadcast lens through a Sony E-mount camera.
The Meta Mount is shimmable, with the included shim set for the E mount.
The Chrosziel Meta Mount lists for $3,850.
