B4 to EF - Canon 5D

Finally got my B4 to EF Canon 5D rig finished!

This adaptation is identical to the Canon C100 - C300 using a B4 to EF adapter in conjunction with a 1.4 teleconverter, which covers the S35 sensor. The only difference is the 5D requires a 2X teleconverter to cover the full frame sensor.

With two 24" carbon fiber rods it's really light weight at 12.15 lbs, with a very low center of gravity centered mid shoulder, which makes it balanced and easy to maneuver without shaky footage at full zoom.

We've got a two day shoot coming up where we are going to put the camera with lens through it paces, and I'll attached the finished video here after post editing.
