What are the Pictor compatible cameras?Please refer to the compatibility table of Pictor Zoom: https://cn.dzofilm.com/images/product.png
Please note that cameras not in this list have not been tested by us and do not mean they are not compatible.
Can Pictor be used with full-frame camera, such as LUMIX S1H Full Frame Mirrorless Camera, Sony - Alpha 7S III Full-frame Mirrorless Camera?Yes, Pictor can be used with some full-frame cameras. It is recommended to choose S35 mode. But we don’t recommend using Pictor with A7S3 because of the vignetting and the resolution is only 1080 after cropping.
Can Pictor be used on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with a speedbooster?No. Pictor zoom is not compatible with speedboosters due to the optical design. So please do not try or you may damage your lens or adapter. You may consider our Linglung lens which has the MFT mount and can be used directly.
Is Pictor compatible with Canon R5‘s crop mode?Yes, but you need to set the the Canon R5 to 1.6x crop mode. In this way, you turn the camera to a APS-C frame which is small than Pictor’s S35 frame. So it will work.
