***THIS IS FOR THE LPL UPGRADE MOUNT ONLY. YOUR LENS MUST HAVE A DCG APERTURE CONTROL FOR THIS UPGRADE MOUNT TO WORK.***
ALL EDMIKA KITS REQUIRE 10 DAYS TO CUSTOM PRODUCE
NOTICE: The use of Speedboosters/Adapters with middle glass elements and/or electronic contact pins may interfere with the function of certain lenses when focusing to infinity. We recommend using a straight-through adapter without any corrective middle glass or electronic contact pins. Additionally, please note that traditional DSLR with vertical glass will hit the rear element of some lenses. We strongly suggest using the lenses on mirrorless only.
FOR EXPERIENCED INSTALLERS ONLY | WARNING: READ THIS BEFORE PURCHASING
Buy at your own risk. The Canon nFD to LPL conversion system is not a DIY-friendly application and is designed for use only by experienced and professional lens techs. If you have never before serviced or modded a lens, we strongly advise against using this kit. Please note that after-sales technical assistance via Simmod or EDMIKA will be limited. We strongly advise sending your lenses to Aa Professional Simmod Installer for LPL conversion to be done by a professional (when service to FD's resume). Each kit is NON-REFUNDABLE. EACH KIT IS MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR EVERY LENS.
A JIS Screwdriver is no longer included. Please select a Tool Option to purchase one if required.
EDMIKA and SIMMOD LENS have partnered to bring you the most advanced nFD to LPL Cine conversion system on the market with this second-generation Cine Pro Kit. Redesigned to meet the demands of cine use, this kit is comprised of the following:
- Brass LPL Mount
Designed for precision, functionality, and durability, our Brass LPL mounts provide an OEM fitment on any LPL body. State-of-the-art CNC machining ensures a tight fit while maintaining infinity focus and proper functionality between camera and lens. If your FD lens can achieve infinity focus before the LPL conversion, this mount is designed to go slightly beyond infinity to ensure infinity focus capability. However, please note that installing this LPL mount will not fix the problem if your native FD lens does not reach infinity before conversion. Infinity re-calibration may be required.
Aperture Control Options:
Dampened Control Gear (DCG)
In addition to the newly designed mount, we've developed an optional integrated aperture gear, SIMply called the Dampened Control Gear (DCG). DCG allows you to de-click and dampen the aperture on all supported nFD lenses while providing a 0.8 mod aperture gear for smooth aperture control. Using the DCG system will eliminate any issues caused by iris drift. DCG replaces the native aperture ring on your lens. Each DCG is CNC machined from Delrin and is etched with the exact f/stop markings as the native aperture ring. We strongly recommend the DCG option for all Cine Users.
***Please be advised that nFD mounts are custom machined and made to order. We require up to 10 business days once an order is received before we can ship out. Each lens mount requires a unique set of Aperture Control Systems that is specific to every lens.
We are shipping them out as fast as we can. Once your order leaves, you will receive an automated tracking number.
