For everyone who has ever dreamed of using the Sony F3 with still photo lenses – this is the chance to do so: The newly developed IMS camera mount for the Sony F3 camera from P+S TECHNIK, the PS-IMS-F3, gives F3 users the option to use virtually every 35mm lenses they want to!
Originally, the F3 comes only with a PL lens mount. But there are many options out there for alternative lenses. With PS-IMS-F3, Nikon, Leica and Canon mount lenses can be used with the F3. Besides the modest price, the major benefit of using still photo lenses with a camera like the Sony F3 is their size and weight. With PS-IMS-F3, those lenses perform just fine on an F3.
With PS-IMS-F3, the following lens mounts can be attached to the Sony F3 camera:
The PS-IMS-F3 consists of an intermediate flange and various lens mounting rings allowing the use of virtually all professional 35mm lenses. All a user needs to do is to exchange the original PL mount with the PS-IMS-F3 intermediate flange. There’s no need for any modification of the F3 or its FZ mount. The F3’s back focus adjustment function allows easy installation and adjustment without any shimming. Of course, existing IMS users can keep using their IMS lens mounting rings with the PS-IMS-F3 intermediate flange.
The PS-IMS-F3 intermediate flange for Sony PMW-F3 is available from now on.
