    Adapting Kodak 25mm 1.9 Anastigmat M-mount lenses

    I got a bunch of lenses with a Kodak 16mm camera. For 2 of them, I was able to screw off the rear adapter and use the S-mount to c-mount adapter.

    One of the lenses - Kodak Anastigmat 25mm 1.9

    I could not access any thread to attach the c-mount adapter.
    Has anyone adapted this lens, or does anyone know of an adapter for this ?

    You would need an M-mount to C-mount adapter, if there is such a thing. I've never seen a Kodak M-mount to C-mount adapter.

    Alternatively, you could fashion an M-mount to m4/3 adapter. Try inquiring with SRB Griturn, they make one-offs as well: http://www.srb-griturn.com/camera-adaptors-306-c.asp

    This Japanese blogger either fashioned one himself or had it made for him:*http://hokkorihokorin.blog26.fc2.com/blog-entry-74.html *From the looks of it it's an M37 thread mount to m4/3 adapter with another adapter screwed in that has grooves for the two poles on the lens mount. *There's nothing to lock into the little plate with a hole above the lens (if yours has one) though so there is the possibility of it wiggling out of the mount. *I'm not sure if it focuses to infinity. *This guy just ripped the mount out of one of the film cameras and adapted it:*http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/lloyd356/60933153.html

    I also have the 25mm f/1.9 taken from one of Kodak's compact cartridge 16mm cameras but I haven't tried either of these methods or disassembling it to see if I can make the registration distance longer.

    The first blogger also diagramed out the different Kodak cine mounts:*http://hokkorihokorin.blog26.fc2.com...entry-122.html *Pretty much everything adapts to M because it has the shortest registration distance.

    My experiment


    Left : 1" F1.9 with M-mount Right : 15mm F2.7 S-mount to M-mount


    1" F1.9 hand held


    15mm F2.7 S-mount to C-mount

    I use a lot of C Mount lenses with the M43
    generally you need a lens over 25mm to cover the whole sensor
    there should be a bunch of adapters on ebay
