New Canon DSLR PL-Mount: No Body Modification To Fit Your Cinematic Lenses

Zunow have a new Canon 5D MKII & 7D PL Mount that does not require heavy modification of your DSLR cameras body and won’t void your warranty. No moving the sensor or altering the electronics of the camera.
The PL Mount 5D from Zunow uses optical glass and will set you back around $2800. Please note I have been advised on the correct US dollar amount the PL Mount should go on sale for.

##Update ZGC is selling the Zunow PL Mount for $3,055.

Zunow’s web write up:

This is the very first PL Mount where you don’t have to modify your Canon DSLR camera. This means you don’t have to send it away and hope it will get back to you in one piece. Also your standard Canon warranty will still be in affect when you use this adapter.

Thanks to the high quality optical glass inside the PL Mount we can create a perfect 35mm light circle around your full frame sensor. So you can film with your Canon DSLR without any distorsion or lost in depth of field.

The Zunow PL Mount 5D comes standard with a V-lock support plate. This will support your PL Mount with a heavy cinematic lens attached. Thanks to the V-lock system you can mount you DSLR onto every quick release adapter. So easy to use onto your tripod.

YOU HAVE TO GO BACK AND FORTH GUESSING AND CHANGING the element to the right focus point. Because of that it is IMPOSSIBLE to mount most cinema lenses. They didn't tell me the price. If it was $500 maybe I… Read more »

Actually the "official" price is $3055 USD (as set by the manufacturer) this is the same price that all Authorized Dealers are to be selling this unit for.
