Beastgrip DOF Adapter MK2
The DOF Adapter MK 2 is the most advanced smartphone SLR/DSLR & Cinema lens adapter ever created. It allows you to use an SLR/DSLR & Cinema* lens with the powerful smartphone camera that you have in your pocket for an incredible bokeh, shallow depth-of-field and film-style look and the ability to pull focus manually like on professional cinema cameras.
The DOF Adapter MK2 incorporates a new patent-pending system with a rotating barrel and unique locking mechanism to easily frame the focusing screen and at the same time align the bayonet mount and SLR/DSLR lens in the correct orientation to see your lens measurements like on a professional camera.
The DOF Adapter MK2 is compatible with a wide variety of SLR and DSLR lenses, just make sure that they meet the following requirements:
- Full frame - the focusing screen inside the DOF Adapter MK2 is designed for full-frame lenses. Using a full-frame focusing screen offers the best performance and compatibility with the largest variety of lenses. Crop sensor lenses are not recommended, as they will cause extreme vignetting when used with the DOF Adapter MK2.
- Canon EF Mount - the DOF Adapter MK2 uses a Canon EF Mount, so it can be used with Canon EF lenses, and a wide variety of other brands/mounts, such as Nikon F-mount, PL-mount, Pentax K-mount, M42, and Olympus OM-mount with an additional adapter ring.
- Manual focus control and an open aperture - the most important aspect of the DOF Adapter MK2 is the ability to manually control focus and get a shallow depth-of-field. Since the DOF Adapter MK2 is purely mechanical, your lens has to have a manual mechanical focus control. Lenses like the Canon STM series that require an electronic connection to a camera body to focus are not compatible with the DOF Adapter MK2. Lenses that offer manual aperture control have to be set wide open for the most shallow depth-of-field. Lenses without a manual aperture control ring, like canon EF lenses, will usually already have their aperture wide open and are also compatible.
For the best results, we recommend using fast (f.95 - f2.8) SLR/DSLR lenses. Generally speaking, the faster the lens, the better performance the DOF Adapter MK2 will have.
