Increases the expandability of L-Mount systems
By using a SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-31, users can use PL-mount cine lenses on the SIGMA fp, fp L and other L-Mount camera systems. The PL-mount is widely used in the filmmaking industry.
SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-31
Accessories: Cap, Support foot, Hex wrench, Screwdriver,
Mount lock screw, L-Mount shim
Note: L-Mount is a registered trademark of Leica Camera AG.
Appearance and specifications are subject to change.
MC-31 has shim adjustments on two points of the mount. Adjustments can be made with a shim kit (Supplied) on the camera side of the mount 2, or a shim for ARRI digital cinema cameras on the lens side 1.
All-metal construction for excellent durability
With an aluminium-alloy body 4 and strong brass mount and locking ring 5, MC-31 boasts excellent durability.
It is also designed to be secured on the mount of the SIGMA fp with a screw thread 3, ensuring an even more secure connection between the lens and the camera. This allows users to shoot steady without the lens rattling even after the long-term use.
The removable support foot 6 allows the MC-31 to be attached to a tripod or other filmmaking accessories such as a camera cage.
Suitable for various shooting conditions
With the screw thread removed, the stopper of the locking ring is released. This makes it possible to use the MC-31 with a PL mount lens that requires tighter mounting than the MC-31’s specifications, allowing the lens to lock securely in place on the converter. The markings on the upper part of the converter are in the same luminous paint as the one used for SIGMA CINE LENS, helping make it easier to replace or adjust a lens in the dark.
Full-fledged filmmaking is possible by combining fp and PL mount lenses
SIGMA fp and SIGMA fp L are some of the smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless cameras that support cinema camera-like user interfaces, which means that they can be taken straight to filmmaking settings. Their small-size bodies translate into a smaller system as a whole, which in turn opens new possibilities for the forms of video creation that would have been difficult to achieve with bulky equipment, such as shooting in narrow space or extreme close-ups.
By using MC-31, not only SIGMA CINE LENSES, but also other manufactures PL mount lenses are available to use on SIGMA fp. The MC-31 Contributes to further expansion of the shooting system.
In 2018, Leica, Panasonic and SIGMA launched the L-Mount Alliance, and announced that the three companies were to develop their own camera systems based around the same L-Mount standard.
The L-Mount realizes a camera system that goes beyond the boundaries between manufacturers, with unprecedented levels of scalability and possibilities.
