Yeah you're gonna need an acromat, but depending on your camera you can get the sd one which is way cheaper.

Save your money and buy one of the many used 35mm adapters that are for sale. People buy them all the time thinking it will make their video look like film, then end up selling them after they realize it's just not for them.

By the way, you will need more than just the adapter if you want to do it properly. Like a camera base plate, rails, lens support, 35mm lens selection, HD monitor, Monitor Batteries, Nogo Arm, Follow Focus, Follow Focus lens gears, Matte Box, ND Filters, Case, Tripod/Head that can properly support the extra weight, so forth and so on.

It will end up costing Much more than just $950.
And you will end up frustrated trying to shoot without the other items I mentioned.


Good Luck!

I second this. Too many people think the adapter alone is the magic pill. The right equipment with the right shooting ability is essential.

I agree with the others you really do need the other accessories to do this right. Try looking on the Redrock forums in the Off Topic/ Marketplace forum. There are frequently rigs available at really good prices.

Light can only help you get a deeper depth of field because it lets you use a smaller aperture. ND filters can help you achieve the opposite when the light forces you to stop down.
