I use this model Speed Booster with Rokinon and Nikon FX lenses, 24mm focal length and narrower. There is no visible vignetting at any VSM level, from 43-100%.

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Hi Lee, I am not using the Nikon FX full frame lenses. I am using DX lenses which are not full frame. I believe that is the difference. I can set my Rokinon 35 (MFT mount, no adapter or speedbooster needed) to 100%, but not the Nikons.

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Jim. That's the answer then.

Most of my SLR/DSLR glass is full frame.
All the T1.5 Rokinons are full frame, so hopefully they won't vignette on the LS300 when using a speedbooster, but as speed boosters with a MFT mount are only designed to cover an MFT sensor there's no guarantee.

As Lee says, he gets no vignette with FF lenses.

Rokinon 35mm and 85mm T1.5 lenses work on 100% VSM with the 0.7x Speedbooster without vignetting. Not sure about the 24mm lens vignetting, but it was noticeably less sharp than 35mm and 85mm lenses.

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Hello Folks. I'm now the proud owner of five Samyang full frame lenses.
Obviously I'm in the market for a Speed Booster, and I want to buy the right one for LS300 full sensor coverage.

You guys have suggested that the 0.71x non-Ultra version is working for you, but I can't buy that one anymore unless I wait for one to show up secondhand. They only sell the Ultra version now and Metabones indicate that you need to crop the VSM down due to vignetting. This could of course simply be Metabones covering their backs in case some FF lenses don't work as well as others.

Can you confirm the exact models of Speed Booster that you are using successfully? Maybe post some pictures?

Another option is the new Aputure Regain, which is a Speed Booster with wireless control features for electronic Canon lenses, and is much cheaper than the Metabones.Sadly I expect that the ND wheel on the 300 gets in the way while mounting the Regain which has a larger footprint than other adaptors. I've suggested to Aputure that they could sell the optical section of the Regain without the electronics, I expect it would be about 300 dollars if they did. It would be amazing if it covered the whole sensor too, but I have no idea...

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Hi Duncan, I have attached some photos. There is a number on it that I assume is the serial # (I bought it used with no paperwork). #3151005105.

HTH,

Jim

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Thank you Jim. Very kind of you!
I'm moving to Canon mount lenses since I got these Samyangs, however I still have all my original Nikon kit.

Re: What's Your LS300 Setup?

Greetings. I'm new to this forum. This is my first post. I recently sold my Canon C100MK1 and purchased a LS300. I kept the Zacuto C-Shooter rig I used with the C100 and modified it for use with my new LS300. The rig consists primarily of the C-Shooter, with a Ninja Blade, Manfrotto 577 quick release camera plate mounted on the rig, Shape shoulder pad, and SmallRig handles. Below are a couple of photos of the rig.
