ARRI LPL Mount for Sony Venice Cameras allows ARRI LPL Signature Prime Lenses to be used on Sony Venice and connects lens pogos directly to the camera. According to ARRI, 2019 Q1 will bring an update to the Signature Primes that will allow for Cooke /i data to be outputted. At that time, the Sony Venice will be able to read the metadata via our pogo interface. LPL Cap included to prevent dust from entering sensor area when lens is not attached.
In our factory, we set the flange focus using collimation tools. You only need to adjust the shims should you find that your camera is out of calibration. The adapter is shimmable by loosening six socket cap screws around the collar area, separating the two sections, and adding color coded shims of various thickness. Back focus should be checked using collimation tools or a wide lens focused to infinity.
ARRI’s LPL to PL Adapter is also compatible, allowing easy change from standard PL lenses to LPL lenses. LPL Mount is passive and does not communicate lens data to the camera.
