Product number: MA-EPL-HR12

The Chrosziel Meta Mount is a Sony E camera to PL lens “hot mount” adapter with metadata communication. 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 the metadata such as iris setting, focus distance and zoom focal length are transmitted through the adapter and appear in the viewfinder, 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 servo’s can be controlled through the camera and are compatible with the Sony FX9 / FX6 / FX3 hand grips, RCP or camera’s web GUI. This allows for easy and 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.

Lensport Iris Motor for cine lenses and Hirose 12pin output cameras
Lensport Iris Motor for cine lenses and Hirose 12pin output cameras Universal Lensport Iris Motor for cine lenses in Broadcast / ENG Run& Gun setups The universal Iris Motor is a compact and universal Iris motor that can be pivoted to almost any lens by simply mounting it on a 15mm rod. The universal motor unit CDM-LP-I fits seamlessly into the operating functions of any camera with Hirose 12pin lensport communcation. The servo drive is controlled via the 12pin Hirose output of the camera. The motor control can be addressed via the camera-specific Broadcast protocol and also works in conjunction with e.g. the MetaMount E-to-PL adapter.The Chrosziel Lensport Iris Motor now allows optimal use of all manual zoom and prime lenses together with any camera with Hirose 12pin output. For this purpose, the Iris motor is slid onto a 15mm rod and swiveled onto the zoom or prime lens. The curled Hirose 12pin cable establish the connection with the camera. Compatibility: The Universal Iris Motor has been successfully tested with the following cameras (manual and automatic iris control): ARRI Amira Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 & URSA Mini Pro 12K Canon C300/500 with EU-V2 expansion unit Panasonic AK-PLV100 Sony F5/F55 with LA-FZB1 adapter Sony Venice Sony E-Mount cameras with Chrosziel MetaMount MA-EPL-HR12 Manual Passive Mode: For temporary manual control, the motor can be set to passive mode. Simply press the motor button once briefly and the motor can be rotated freely. Once the button is pressed again, the motor is back in Active mode and controlled by the camera. Metadata:For setup, the cable is connected to the Hirose 12pin socket of the camera. The motor automatically calibrates itself and finds the endstops of the lens. For metadata calibration, the motor needs to learn T-Stop 4 and 16. With the press of the only button, the motor goes into passive mode and the user can turn the motor without resistance. The motor is turned to T-Stop 4 and the the press of the button confirms the position. Afterwards the motor is turned to T-Stop 16 and the position is confirmed with another press of the button. Ready! FEATURESUniversal Iris motor The Iris Motor is a compact and universal Iris motor that can be pivoted to almost any lens by simply mounting it on a 15mm rod. Controlled via any Hirose 12pin camera outputThe camera's Hirose 12pin Lensport output controls directly the Iris motor unit. Remote Iris and AutoIris controlUse the Iris motor in a remote setup and control it via the RCP or WebGUI of any camera with Hirose 12pin connector. Or switch on the AutoIris functionality of your camera and the camera uses the Chrosziel Univeral Iris Motor for AutoIris control.
